    July 1, 2024 David - I would very much like to hear more about Mary Kennelly as my wife believes her Kennelly line most likely connects to the Leitrim townland Kennellys from 1790-1835 or so. Do you know who her parents and any siblings were? If so, could you please share it to me at [email protected]? Thanks! Dave McGinnis (for Sheila Kennelly McGinnis)

    June 19, 2024 Hi I am seeking ancestral information on my 4th Gr Grandfather James M. MULVIHILL married to Catherine COLLINS. Their son Nicholas MULVIHILL (my 3rd Gr. Grandfather) info is as follows: BIRTH 1796 INNetownsandes/Moyvanne, Listowell, County Kerry, Kerry, Munster, Ireland DEATH 1866 • Murher, Leitrim Middle, Moyvane, Kerry, Munster, Ireland. Their other children that I know of are: Catherine, Bridget, Johanna, Margaret Alice, Martin & Michael. Nicholas was married to Mary KENNELLY and her info is: BIRTH 26 SEP 1791 • Newtownsandes (Moyvanne), Listowel, County Kerry, Ireland DEATH 27 SEP 1870 • Ballyrehan, Lixnaw, Kerry, Ireland Margaret Alice MULVIHILL is my 2nd Great Grandmother and her info is: BIRTH 12 APR 1831 • Newtownsandes/Moyvane, Listowel, County Kerry, Ireland DEATH 03 JAN 1909 • Sherwood Township, Renfrew County, Ontario, Canada. Baptism record I have for Margaret Alice MULVIHILL states she was from Leitrim as well as listing Moyvane (Parish, Church, Congregation) and her sponsors were Thomas CONNOR and Mary CONNELL. We are planning a trip to Ireland in early Sept 2024 and would like to pay our respects to my Great Grandparents by visiting near or as close as I can get to where they were from. If I were to actually meet relative there is would be a wonderful added bonus. My sincere gratitude and kindest regards to anyone that can be of assistance. David Sullivan

    May 13, 2024 Hello. I’m looking for assistance in tracking down the family who have a farm on Drombeg area of Moyvane. Back in 1999 my mother and I visited the farm and Moss and Bridie Keane (and sadly they have both passed, may they Rest in Peace). I am meeting with my Uncle and his family the weekend of 18-19 May and was hoping to stop there as this was the ancestral farm of my great great grandfather Patrick Cordon. I believe the farm maybe with one of their children. Please link back if you have any information to share. Elizabeth Ahern 087 619 7678

    May 7, 2024 I have just seen the info about Enrights Bar. This is a long shot but my great-great-grandfather was Nicholas Enright, a stonemason. We always understood he was from Limerick but there seem to be more links (DNA matches for me with “Enright” in their family tree) with Listowel and also with the surname McElligut. His son Michael Joseph Enright was born 1844 and so Nicolas may have been a contemporary of Dan Enright of Enrights Bar. He moved to London and we think had died by 1851; his wife Bridget “Henright” is shown then as a widow. Any clues as to Nicolas Enright’s family and whether he might have been related to Dan Enright would be much appreciated As it happens I am in Listowel now but only for one night! I would have posted earlier if I had found this forum before now.

    April 17, 2024 Anna Maria Kennelly was a McEnery I think before she was married. She runs this site and still lives in Moyvane so hope she replies soon. I’ll be over from the UK next week and can’t wait!

    April 9, 2024 Hello, My husband, Peter Keane and I are travelling to Ireland next week and will stay one night in Listowel, in the hopes of learning more about the whereabouts of my husband’s mother’s family — the McEnerys who lived in Moyvane. His uncle was Denis McEnery who died in 2012, and he also had several aunts. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    November 16, 2023 Hi, I'm hoping to make contact with members of the Dunne family of Dromurhur or anyone who may remember the household in the 40's/50's. In 1934, when Catherine & John's eldest child was a few weeks old, they boarded out a toddler from the County Home. Her name was Christina Maher and we know she was still living with the family in the 1950's. Her foster siblings included John, Daniel, Patrick, Mary, William, Denis, James & Thomas. We would dearly love to hear of any memories of Christina, her life, her work, when & why she moved on. We know she returned in the late 1990s to pay a visit shortly before Catherine's death. However, she never spoke of her early life so it's a mystery; we'd be delighted if there any any photos in existence. We really hope someone is able to help, albeit going back in time quite a bit! We visited Kerry earlier this year but unfortunately didn't have the time to visit Moyvane though we are due to return. Thank you for reading this!

    November 1, 2023 Hello, My name is John Leman. I currently reside in Douglas, Wyoming, U. S. A. Here, I own and operate my own cattle ranch. About 20 years ago, I traveled to Knockanure to look up family relatives on my grandmother's side (William and Nora O'Sullivan). I was delighted to be make my acquaintance with Ann Woods, her husband Jerry and their children. At that time, both Ann and Jerry operated Flynn's Bar. I was also introduced to Ann's mother Margaret. I have since lost contact with Ann and would very much like to reconnect with her if possible. If anyone in Knockanure reading this would be able to help me in this endeavor, I would be most grateful. I will fill in my name and email contact below. Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to offer. Kind regards, John Leman

Missed and loved always and forever.

    August 4, 2023 Hello, I wonder if anyone could help me. My family history has led me here to this village. I am looking for any information on the Kennelly family. My Great Grandmother was Mary Kennelly (07 03 1918 - 1980/1) who was born in the village, and outside of that I know next to nothing of her connection here. So much so I don't even know who her parents were! I'm hoping that being such a small village that there was only one Kennelly family. I don't suppose anyone would have any history on the family? What is curious is that she met my great grandfather (Denis Carroll) who resided in Waterford. Which is some distance. Was it common to travel so far? My mother tells me that Mary worked in service in a big house as a cook, I gather this would be in Waterford though! Any information on the family would be most welcome. Thank you!
