Re: Tubridy Family Kilrush

Jean Am I correct in thinking that your aunt Catherine Tubridy married John F (Seán, Jack) McGrath with whom she ran a shop in Moore Street before they emigrated to Canada in 1955? I spent a very interesting day in the National Folklore Collection in University College Dublin last Friday, reading th...

Re: Hitting brick wall @ Patrick Crowe & parents - suggestio

James Crowe was a widower when he died in 1889, so his second wife must be the only Ann* Crowe whose death was registered in Kilrush between their marriage and his death. !DEATH: Ireland, Civil Registration Deaths Index, 1864-1958 Name: Anne Crowe Estimated birth year: abt 1807 Date of Registration:...

Re: Hitting brick wall @ Patrick Crowe & parents - suggestio

Hi bd77690 I didn't recognise your new username on this forum until I looked back at your Facebook username. As I posted on your Facebook thread, the official verdict is that "Private Martin Crowe died of accidental wounds whilst on leave in Ireland on 29 March 1918". murf has beaten me to it on a f...

Re: John Nash 1815-1880 and Jane Quilty- Kilrush

The children of John and Jane Nash are in the Kilrush Church of Ireland registers (William 1842, Sarah 1844, Jane 1847, Catherine 1852, Harriet, Ellen and Susan all in 1858 and George in 1863). Until recently, they were held at St. Columba's Church in Ennis, but they may now have gone to the Represe...

I learned this evening from a man who was raised by his mother's first cousin and her husband Denis Quinlan (1904-1973) that Denis's aunt Johanna Quinlan married James McCarthy. James and Johanna were both teachers and taught in Kilronan on Inis Mór in the Aran Islands. I have not yet found them in ...

The Boree Log at Lissycasey has been transformed from a pub to a barber's shop. Local gossip comes up with the strangest of explanations for such transformations and I recently heard a rumour (from an unreliable source) that the publican's lawyer was late getting the application to renew the pub lic...

Re: niece/nephew = grandchild ?

The use of niece/nephew in place of granddaughter/grandson is so common in the census returns that I have long since given up recording new examples. However, I have now found it for the first time on a death certificate: https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/dea...

Re: Tubridy Family Kilrush

WorldConnect has more information on the Tubridy family.

Given all the question marks about the transcription from the Tubridy vault, it would be nice to see a photograph.

Re: O'Kelly family of Cascade Lodge, Lissyneillan

Not only is Annagh an unofficial place name for the area around Cascade Lodge in Lissyneillan and an official townland name for a townland in Kilmurry DED in Cragaknock dispensary district, but there is also an Annagh DED in Milltown Malbay dispensary district, adjoining Kilmurry DED. See this map.
