 Forum: Clare Past   Topic: Special census of Gaeltacht regions, 1925

It was mentioned by Philip Fogarty of NUIG in his lecture to Kilrush & District Historical Society on Tuesday 29 September 2015 that a special census of the Gaeltacht was taken in August 1925. Many genealogists seem to be unaware of this potential source. The best details of this census that I c...

Caherfeenick is in Doonbeg DED even though it is in a different parish. In fact, one cannot get from one end of Doonbeg/Killard parish to the other without either going through Caherfeenick or wading across the Scivileen River! The little that I have on the Brews of Doonmore is at http://pwaldron.in...

Perhaps it is more than coincidence that Newtown House in Doonbeg appears to have fallen into ruin at about the time that Newtown House in Newtown East was built or named! There is a similar situation in Kilrush - when the Vandeleurs' Kilrush House burned in the 1890s, the Glynns claimed the name fo...

Another example in a Church of Ireland family where nobody spoke Irish: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Kilrush_Rural/Carnaun/363661/ Cissie O'Donnell was the daughter of John George O'Donnell and Rachel Brew, but was described as `niece' by her maternal grandparents. Her pare...

I had a look at the Buglers. It looks like Peter Bugler (who married Daniel Joseph Garry's widow) was a nephew of Mr P Bulger of Castleroberts (who attended the funeral of Daniel's second cousin once removed Michael Garry). I don't see any close connection between the Tubridys. The ancestors of Tom ...

How annoying that multiply.com is long gone!

I noted that Kevin added useful comments about the Callinans there, clearly after the Wayback Machine harvested the page for the one and only time:

I have recently discovered that the twice-widowed D J Garry, whose second wife's obituary appears above, married a third time, on 30 January 1918 to Anne Tubridy, daughter of Stephen Tubridy and Anne Fitzgerald. After D J Garry's death on 12 June 1927, his widow remarried on 25 February 1936 to Pete...

Lewis's Topography says that Ballybrood civil parish is part of the Catholic parish of Caherconlish. There is a John Connor in the right month and year and parish at http://limerick.rootsireland.ie/view_detail.php?recordid=1857948&type=bch&recordCentre=limerick&page=1 Church Baptism Reco...

Less than a week after I first heard of "Bishop Ireland's Connemara Experiment" from Jimbo above, it was the subject of the "On This Day" item on Drivetime on RTÉ Radio 1 this evening. Listen back here: http://www.rte.ie/radio/utils/radioplayer/rteradioweb.html#!rii=9%3A20845278%...

Mary appears to be Daniel's second wife. These look like the birth of the 15 month old infant on the passenger list: https://familysearch.org/search/collection/results?count=75&query=%2Bfather_givenname%3Adaniel~%20%2Bfather_surname%3Aquinlivan~%20%2Bmother_givenname%3Amary~%20%2Bmother_surname%...

I am still here, Geoff, but still more interested in Binford Throne's wife and her siblings than in Binford himself!

I am glad that my post has helped you.

Best wishes

Paddy.

In Cloughaunbeg East in 1901, Michael and Honor Whyte's household included his "Niece" Molly Tubridy (11): http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Clare/Creegh/Cloughaunbeg_East/1078191/ By 1911, Honora Whyte had been widowed. Her household now included "Grand Daughter" ...

Thanks, Jimbo. I got this from the Office Manager, Calvary and St. Mary's Cemeteries: Edward Quinlivan was buried on February 6, 1941, at age 78, in Section 78 Block 15 Lot 12 Grave 2. Buried next to him is Matilda E Quinlivan, who was buried on October 6, 1954, at age 80. Eliza Quinlivan was buried...

Hi Jimbo You found several bits and pieces that I had missed! In particular, I had not found the 1910 census with the 1886 migration year. rootsireland.ie currently has no birth matching ed quinlivan from 1851 to 1863 inclusive. The younger Edward Quinlivan of St. Paul may have been born in a parish...
