    My mother was Elizabeth Dore 1914-1988 who came from what she called Newtownsands. Her father was called Michael. He was a tailor as were some of his children. Just thought I would say hello,.. as there must be many relatives out there.

My mothers sisters were caleed Julia ( shelagh ) and Bridget ( bridie ) I know this is a long shot, as she was born in 1930, I would appreciate any information Marie

My digs were second to none at Mrs Quinn’s,,near Jimmy Nolan’s,who was a fine photographer .Happy days no doubt,and it is good to see that the co-op is still going strong.

    Will be visiting the area in two weeks to see mom’s birthplace. Eileen Moran, born in 1916, daughter of Hannah Nolan and James Moran. Any info would be fun.
    Thanks much,

    Very Interesting to learn about Moyvane. My ancestor was that cruel landlord George Sandes. Came across this whilst doing family history research.
    I live in Dalbeattie, SW Scotland will come and visit one day!

  8. Gary Kennelly

    I think your site is terrific. Enjoy reading the news and viewing the video vignettes of the town and residents.

    I would love to hear from Kennellys in Moyvane. We likely are related. My great-great-great grandmother, Ellen (Creagh) Kennelly, and great-great grandfather, Patrick Kennelly, came to the United States from Moyvane in 1863.

  9. Martin Keane

    Just a short note.

    I’m the son of bridie keane (formerly O’Grady). Her sister Mary Horan was my aunt and her husband Pat Horan was the blacksmith outside of town. Her brother were Tom and Dan OGrady and another sister Elizabeth.

    Would love to hear from someone who knew them.

    I just found the Moyvane web site last night while helping my daughter write a story for school. What a great idea, and well done. I hope people continue making contributions of photos and stories.

    My ancestor is great grandfather John Jay O’Connor, eldest of his generation, who emigrated with 2 younger brothers in the 1880’s, or so I have been told. They come from The Hill farm in Knockanure, which I have been lucky enough to visit twice.

    Greetings from Paradise Valley, Arizona, USA.


    Jeremiah Buckley married Mary Enright about 1852. They lived in the Shamrock Cottage on the Mail Road. They had 8 children between 1853 and 1871 including my grandfather John Buckley 1853-1910, all baptized in Newtownsandes. The daughters married Stephens, Brandon and Foran. I should welcome any contacts.

    hi all from moyvane

  13. Sandy Pierce

    I am researching my husband’s family tree. His grandfather, Patrick Joseph Pierce, was born in Coolkerang (I can’t find the town but I know is was near to Listowel) in 1871 and came to the US in 1885. He had a brother Richard and several sisters. I’m not sure if any of the family is still in the area of Moyvane but I’d love to hear from anyone who knows of any family of Patrick Pierce.

  14. Amy Broderick
