    Thanks for all your help

    Hi it’s me again been trying to find my great grandparents since 2014 their names are John O’Connell and Catherine O ‘Connell nee Sullivan they had a daughter Bridget in July 1861 who was baptised in Moyvane but later came to Britain, I would love to find out where her parents originated from ,any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks very much

      hello maureen.

      i did a very brief look into the above records and came up with a John Connell marrying Catherine Sullivan on 22 Feb 1841 In Kerry-Castleisland. It does not give the parent’s first names nor their towns of origin in the record but lists the witnesses as Timothy Devine and Maurice Harrington.

      another quick look into Bridget showed a birth to the same named parents on 7 Jul 1861 in Moyvane (Ahalahana)

      not sure this is of much help. best of luck.

    Hi, It should be possible to get these details as there are still some family members in the Listowel area. As I understand it there were 2 families, both related, one living at Ballinruddery and other at Soldiers Houses, Dromin, Listowel. Dromin is on the Listowel Tarbert road. I believe that one of the family may have gone to Donegal also.
    Hope this is of some use. Martin Moore, Tralee.

    I have posted several times previously,but have received no reply. Could someone please help me with information re John Kennelly, Cornelius Kennelly and Bridget Kennelly who left Moyvane in the mid to late 1880’s /90’s and came to Melbourne Australia. John married Mary O’Dea in Melbourne. Bridget died in 1894? I know where her grave is but have no details to put on a headstone. Bridget is buried beside John & Mary with their two youngest children, twins, Veronica ( Ron) and Clare. I have ensured that the headstone for them has been renovated and completed with a celtic cross and the words, ‘Love never dies’.

    My name is Edmund Fitzmaurice and I Iive in New York, USA. My great-grandfather, John Fitzmaurice, was from Moyvane and came to Philadelphia approximately 1880-1890. In Philadelphia, he owned a bar. I was hoping someone might have some information about him.

    Also, I am traveling to Ireland Oct 15-26 and was hoping to stop by the village of Moyvane. Are there any activities happening in the villiage on Oct 22-24?

    Thanks so much,

    Ellen Sheehy married Micheal Lynch on 31st January 1893 in Moyvane church,Co Kerry. I do believe they were living in Gortdromagouna outside Moyvane village by the census of Ireland in 1901 and 1911. Ellen Sheehy was my great grand aunt. If you are related to that family. Please write to me. Fergus

  10. Catherine C. Crawford

    I am searching for information on the Ahern/O’Sullivan family from Dirreen, Athea,
    particularly the Tadhg O’Sullivans, Listons, Histons, Aherns, Fealeys, Kellys – the generations prior to the marriage of Julia O’Sullivan and Patrick Ahern in the mid to late 1800s.

    My father, Patrick Robert Roche, was born in Moyvane North on March 22, 1902. I am looking for any relatives that may still reside in Moyvane, as my wife, brother and I will be traveling to Ireland from Sep 1-11, this year and would love to meet up with them. Any help would be appreciated.

    We would also like to know how we may be able to find more information about my Dad: e.g., what Church/school he attended and the source of any written documents, such as birth certificate, school records, etc.

    We would especially like to meet with Gabriel Fitizmaurice at that time, since he is such a wealth of information about your lovely community.

    Happy St. Patricks Day to one and all!!

  14. Mary Murphy

    just research that my great, great grandparents were married in Moyvane 7 SEP 1857 (John O’Shea and Johanna Donahue). So, I’m adding your lovely town onto my visit list of Ireland!
    I do have one question. The parish record lists the town Miss Johanna came from as ‘C l o u n p r u h u s’ ?? I am not finding such a town. Closest, I think, was possibly ‘Clontuskert, a.k.a. Cloonturskan’ in Roscommon. I’m just wondering if that makes sense, and if that area is near you?
    Dia leat!

    • Martin Moore

      Yes, Clonprohus is in Moyvane. It is not a town, just what is known as a townland or parish district.

      • Mary Murphy

        Thank you!

    I know this is early, but does anyone know when the graveyard Mass is this summer? Is it the first of August? My Mom, Mag Dore, has a Wedding to go to here in NY on the 30th of July and she wants to know if she has to leave her the next day to make it there for the Mass or if she can go the next week. Thank you!
