    July 21, 2022 Best of luck in the All Ireland Final on Sunday. My Dad, Joe Kearney, was from the Glin Road in Moyvane. He fell in love and married my Mam, a Leitrim woman, in Manchester, they settled in Longford back in the 70's. Dad passed away, suddenly, in August 2016. This weekend, I am proud to fly the Kerry flag, as always, in memory of my wonderful Dad... He was very fondly known in Longford as "Kerry Joe". And as Dad always said " Up the Kingdom"..

    June 5, 2022 If you check in the Photos section you will find a Confirmation picture taken in 1955. It was taken by an American visitor. The girls all wore navy blazers and white berets. Mrs. O'Connell was school principal.

    April 29, 2022 Hello, for baptisms from those years I recommend you contact the church in the parish on this number. Presbytery/Office: 068 49308. (You will probably have to change the number around to work if you are in New York). My grandma’s brother Con O’Carroll was born on December 7th 1948 so might have been baptised during that time. Hope this helps, Nicholas

    April 26, 2022 Hi, I hope this finds you well. Maybe you can help me, I am doing some research as a media student in Dublin. I am working on behalf of a New York base documentary film production company who may film a segment of their show in Ballylongford and or Moyvane Co. Kerry. Later this year. To start with, as the researcher, I would like to get a copy or list of all baptisms from December 1st 1948 to February 31st 1948, so I can fill in some family back story for the star of the documentary, who has been searching for their far flung family. Discretion is requested, as this is a documentary film similar to the popular British series ‘Who Do You Think You Are’ and the producers need to keep its existence under wraps until the release date. Further research maybe required, and I am happy to discuss compensation in due course. Kind regards, Emma

    April 23, 2022 That church was knocked down in the 50s, my grandma being the in last year that had their first communion there. I don’t know about those surnames I’m afraid. Could Rulihan also be Relihan because I think that’s a local name.

    April 18, 2022 Genealogy Help: Great grandma was married at Moyvane Catholic Church- Nov. 1860. Margarita (Frawley) Rulihan - Gortaglanna to Thomas Rulihan ( spelled Thomas Rulethan in the 1875 USA Census), -Kilbaha. Are there any descendants of these two families ? Also, I assume the 1860 Church is no longer standing ? . Thank you. Jim

    April 7, 2022 Hi Tom, Dan Joe is alive and well and shops in Holly's Supermarket every week. Nice man. Didn't really know his wife but her brother drove the post van for many, many years and he was very liked. Think his name was Sean. His brother had a pub in Lower William Street, Listowel at the time.

    September 25, 2021 Nice memory of Sr. Virgilius Reidy of Rathanny, Ballymac here today. She lived a long and very full life. Her brother Paddy also emigrated and lived in San Francisco. Another brother, Jack Reidy was a tailor and he was killed about the same time as Arthur Vicars. Jack Reidy's death was a reprisal for the killing of Major McKinnon at the golf links in Tralee
