    Hi I would like to get in touch with my cousin’s Brid’s family. She married a man and lived in Moyvane. She died 10 years ago approximately and we recently found out that she had two children who could be 16 +. Her maiden name was Brid O’ Brien of Ballyhahill Co Limerick. Her mum was Kit.

    It would be great to catch up.

    Am very interested in the history of this lovely place and I am hoping to visit quite soon, my interest is regarding my Grandmoter who was born there in Shamrock Cottage under the name of Fannie Buckley born in 1902, her parents were John & Harriet Buckley.

    I was hoping to get in touch with retired police sergeant Seamus Groarke, son of Ann Kitson. My grandmother, Marcella Gorman, is his first cousin and I was looking for information on the rest of the Kitsons that stayed in Ireland.

    Any information that anyone can pass on to me is greatly appreciated.

    Message for Krista

    I saw your message of 21 February 2008 on the Moyvane web-site and I admit to being a tad confused. Fr. Maurice is, was, my grand-uncle. He was one of twelve children of John and Marie Walshe and we have a photograph of the whole family. There was one other priest, Father Eddy, a great favourite of the family. He sponsored many of my uncles and two aunts out to the States, to Syracuse.

    Anyway, I would be interested to know more about Father Maurice being your grandfather. The mind boggles..I suppose most families have skeletons in the closet but ours may be wearing a dog-collar.

    I am compiling a family history at the moment so perhaps we could swap any other information which we have on the Kissanes.

    And, of course, if anybody out there does have any information about the Kissanes who lived in Leitrim East then I would be very grateful….

    I had a great grandfather & grandmother who I belive are form Moyvane. Patrick Scanlon (b. abt 1865) & Ellen (Mulvihill) Scanlon (b. abt 1868) both emigrated from Moyvane to the US about 1880. Are there records avilable for this time frame that can be researhed? Both were Catholic and I am told the church records were destroyed in a fire.

    I have just read the essay which outlines the events surrounding that very tragic ambush at Knocknanure.
    It is my favourite Irish ballad and it is great that such an accurate account of the events are recorded.

    It is only by reading such reports that people will actually realise the reign of terror that occurred throughout Ireland and in particular Limerick Kerry Cork and Tipp during the years 1919 to 1922

  14. Robert Walsh Fister

    I enjoy reading about your great Country, My family, Walsh came from co Kerry to the states in 1852, the Stack family as well. I hope some day to visit your wonderful Co Kerry and Moyvane for sure as that is where my great great grandfather John R Walsh was born and lived. Good luck to you all.

    I am proud to be of Irish heritage, especially Co. Kerry and Moyvane.

    Your USA/Irish Friend.

    I’ve just traced my Quinn grandfather to Leitrim Middle, which he left around 1900. He was John Quinn, son of John and Mary Quinn. Several of his siblings immigrated to the US, and several others remained, namely Matthew (who settled in Leitrim West), Michael, probably Stephen, and maybe a few others. I hope some of the “Quinns of Leitrim” who I see in the wonderful Moyvane Notes on this site will recognize these names and contact me for exchange of information, and old photos if there are any. I have only one old photo, reputedly of Quinns from that era; if we can identify the men in the photo I’d be happy to contribute it.
