I have a transcript of a letter written in September 1892 by Rev. Hugh Brady Huleatt (1822-1898) which appears to refer to the above incident: on declaration of war in 1854 ... I applied for and obtained a Military Chaplaincy. I was sent in the Steam Transport `Prince' to the seat of war on the Heig...

Don't waste your time making any more phone calls until Wednesday.

Everything in Ireland will be closed on Tuesday, March 17, because it is St Patrick's Day!

I believe that you can order the certs using the form on the website at http://www.groireland.ie/ but I get them by visiting the office in the Irish Life Centre in Abbey Street in Dublin. There is a local office in Sandfield in Ennis where people in Clare get them. As far as I remember, the charge i...

Dear Stuart You have found out an awful lot in the four days since your first post! I'm curious to know who did the research which you quoted in your second post. I thought at first that I was reading a report from the Clare Heritage Centre in Corofin, but the `somewhere in the house' reference sugg...

Dear Stuart I have distant cousins named Austin in west Clare, where Austin is a very unusual name, so your message caught my eye. A search for John Austins of County Clare at http://pilot.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html#c=1408347;p=collectionDetails;t=searchable suggests that these are you...

It never ceases to amaze me how widely it is reported that Shackleton the explorer was born in Kilkee, Co. Clare; it is now well-known that he was from Kilkea, Co. Kildare. There is even a `Shackleton Terrace, Kilkee' named after him, some of the locals having fallen for the incorrect version of the...

Once you get used to the standard Irish naming patterns (e.g. first two girls after their grandmothers, third girl after her mother; first two boys after their grandfathers; third boy after his father), the repetition of names actually makes things easier, not harder!

Michael O'Brien of Creegh South married Bridget Markham shortly before the start of civil registration in 1864. Bridget appears as a widow in the 1901 census living with three sons in Creegh South; see http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/genealogy/1901census/creegh_ded_creegh_south82_11.htm Bri...

The plot thickens: The often notoriously unreliable Clare Champion on 23 Jan 2009 published a report by Peter O'Connell entitled `President Obama's link with Killaloe' which states: `Joseph Kearney ... married Sarah Healy ... in Killaloe in 1761. The wedding ceremony was held in an establishment bel...

I had a quick look at http://pilot.familysearch.org but cannot find a match for the marriage - there is an entry for Catherine Spellissy in Ennis in the second quarter of 1927, but no matching entry for John McPolin. There are only 10 entries for McPolin in Leitrim, Ireland, all of which appear to b...

Thanks for the extra information, Sharon. While I live within sight of St Flannan's Cathedral, Killaloe, I must admit that I don't know as much as I should about its history - but I was surprised to read that it was "then in C of I hands although later again a RC property". It is firmly in...

I think this Clare connection is spurious and results from a failure to realise that the boundaries of the DIOCESE of Killaloe extend far beyond the TOWN of Killaloe and indeed far beyond the boundaries of the COUNTY of Clare. The original research on Obama's Irish roots can be read at http://www.en...

Information newly digitised at naa.gov.au: On 13 Mar 1921, Madge send a handwritten letter, from 39 Raglan Street, East St. Kilda, directly to the Honorable A. S. Rodgers, Acting Minister for Repatriation, relative to her desire to obtain assistance in business, but including lots of fascinating bac...

Sharon Your "not researching ..." postings are forming an invaluable archive for other researchers. 1. A couple of days ago, Michael McNamara asked whether my Frost research had uncovered any information about the O'Grady/Frost family of Brookland (Brooklyn?) commemorated at another St. Jo...

Hi Sharon I have now read the Other Clare article and followed up some of the references to Ivar O'Brien's `O'Brien of Thomond'. (Maurice Cuffe's daughter Elizabeth m. 8 Feb 1652 Joseph Deane; their daughter Elizabeth Deane married as her second husband the widowed Sir Donough O'Brien, 1st Bt., of D...
