    Great web site. I found a picture of my father (Brendan Broderick) and a few of my uncles. It was nice to see some pictures of the area where my Dad grew up. I have yet to visit, but hope to some day.

    Would love any info about John and Catherine O’Connor Hanrahan of Tarbert in the 1800s. Attended St. Mary’s Church. I am descendant of dau. Margaret Mary b. 1866 and came to America.

  5. Thomas F. Hanrahan

    Hello All,

    I am writing here in this guest book out of curiosity aroused by my younger sister (Colleen Hanrahan) as to our family genealogy. My father Thomas Hanrahan was born and raised on a farm in Moyvane. He had several brothers and sisters. Mostly, just some of the brothers, including my father came to America. They were Michael (lived in Middletown, NJ), Con (lived in Staten Island, NY), Jerry (lived in NY but later went home), and Thomas (my father).

    Our family, history and roots are now spread all over the world from Ireland, UK and the US. I am trying to piece it together and understand it. Most importantly I’d like to reconnect with family that I never met.

    Any ideas or suggestions, would greatly be appreciatted.

    I’ll come back here from time to time and let you all know how I am doing.

    Regards,

    Thomas F. Hanrahan

    Still looking for any information on the Hanrahans from Moyvane (Aughrim?). I believe my first cousin Tom is still running th family farm that my father grew up on. I am the youngest of seven Hanrahan’s born to Thomas and Roberta Hanrahan. Most of us live in NJ but I live in D.C. If anyone out there knows anything about my family I would love to hear from you.

    Terrific website — thanks for the pictures and stories of Knockanure. My mother, Peggy O’Carroll, sends her best to all her O’Carroll cousins. Her father Maurice left in the late 20s and we’ve been back for a few v. memorable visits with Mary, Gerry and other O’Carrolls.

    Thanks for collecting lists of teachers from Knockanure and Moyvane.

    All the best.

    My mother lived in Newtownsandes with my grandfather, just prior to WW II. My mother is turning 80 this June. I would love to get some info for her for this occasion.

    My Grandfather was John Joseph Walsh.
    He had a farm in Newtownsandes and immigrated to NYC around 1917-1918.
    He went back with my mother for a few years to tend to his farm. He died in NY in 1939.

    Anyone that i can contact?

    Very nice and interesting website. I will revisit soon. Putting it on my “favorite places”.

    Thank you for any assistance.
    Sincerely,
    Mary Tenety

    My mother comes from Lissaniskea, Knockanure. I am always very proud of my roots in Kerry (not only amongst the English but also my Fathers family in Co Laois).

    Like every migrant from New York to Melborne, I am proud of being Irish. But as I tell my girls I am evem more proud of North Kerry, Moyvane and Knockanure!!!.

    Love to everyone, you are always part of my heart.

    What an incredible sunny Mother’s Day here in North Carolina, USA… After many, many years of searching I have a clue in finding the homeplace of our Irish ancestors– it looks like my husband and I were within miles of you in 1995 and never knew how close we were. I found recently a book called “The Jolly Irishman,” written by Michael J Moore (from Newtownsands), who was a first cousin of my gggm Maggie Quinn, daughter of John Quinn and Mary Moore. We have also found references in the book to cousins Enrights and Mulvihills who came through NY. I hope to eventually figure out how we are all related. Quinns, Moores, Mulvihills, Quirks, Sinnett (although these latter two may have been from County Wexford or Cork), Field, Douglas.

  15. Peter Geran

    I am researching family.
    Grandmother born in Moyvane Dec. 1884 sailed to Aust. 1905.
    Name: Honorah O’Sullivan
    Parents: Mary McGrath & John O’Sullivan
    She married a William Geran in 1915. Would be interested to hear from any people in town who may be related?
