  1. Jim Hays in Guestbook

    I am looking for anyone related to Cornelius Mulvihill (born 1840?) of Gortdromasilliah or his first wife Ann Cunningham. I heard some Mulvihills still own farms in Cloonebrane. I will be traveling to Ireland in July 2021 (hopefully) and would love to meet any distant cousins. Cornelius and Ann were my great great grandparents. Ann died possibly 1860 or 1861 and I have no information on her. Their daughter Johanna, my great grandmother, emigrated to Sidney, Ohio in the U.S. Cornelius later married Bridget Dinneen in 1862 and had a large family, many of whom emigrated to the United States.

      Hi Jim, I don’t know the family but my Stack ancestors are from the same townland. If you look on Helen’s Family Trees website you will find some details about the families.
      Good luck with your searches,
      Ken

      • Jim Hays

        Thanks Ken- Helen is great, very generous with her time and information. Yes, the Mulvihill and Stacks show up a lot on the same marriage / baptism certificates so they must have been close. Later, my great, great Aunty Mary Mulvihill married Patrick Stack (b 1864), maybe related to one of your ancestors?
        Thanks again.

        • KEN DUCKETT

          Hi Jim, I looked up your potential family on Ancestry and found a Groves F.T.run by Yvonne Mulvihill.

          Daniel Mulvihill b1855-1931 Ballylongford
          Maria ” 1860-
          Daniel married Mary McCormick and they had a son William McCormick 1895-1960 M Margaret O’Leary 1896-1979 in turn a daughter Jane Mulvihill 1933-2017 M Kenneth Groves 1932-2009, they had a Private offspring.
          I’ll check on my Stack ancestors, they are numerous!
          Best wishes,
          Ken

          • Jim Hays

            Thanks Ken. Did you find the Groves F.T. on Ancestry.com? I could not locate it there or by a Google search. I believe all their children were born in Gurtdromasillahy, not Ballylongford.
            Thanks again.

        • KEN DUCKETT

          Yes it was Ancestry,

    Jeremiah Buckley – Bridget O’Connor
    Hello
    I’ve hit a brick wall researching my great grandparents. Jeremiah Buckley – Bridget O’Connor, both lived in Newtownsandes 1870s-1940s. They had three sons, John (Jack) Buckley who remained in the village until he died in 1987, Maurice (my grandfather) who moved to England and Jeremiah who emigrated to New York.
    Any information on any of the above would be gratefully received as I’m struggling to find out anything from the usual sources !
    Thanks in advance

  5. Beth Leahy in Guestbook

    I have an ancestor, Timothy Leahy of Lots (c1860) from Knockanure. I would like to know where or what is “Lots”? I have tried to find out online and only come up with “lots for sale.”Thank you.

  6. My grand mother Elizabeth Enright born (1919) sister to Sr.Mary, Danny and Body from Moyvane married Michael Quirke. Any relations or information would be greatly appreciated!

  7. Bronwen Davis in Guestbook

    Hello from Brisbane, Australia.
    I am researching my 3rd great-grandparents who were married in Moyvane in early 1833: Florence McAuliffe (? born 1796) and Ellen Healy (? born 1814). Information shows their denomination as being RC and Ellen was noted to reside in Kilmeany at that time. Marriage witnesses were Patrick McAuliffe and Martin McAuliffe. They then resided in Listowel with Ellen passing in 1870 and Florence passing in 1874. Many of their children emigrated from Listowel to Australia in 1860s. I have not been able to find earlier information for Florence and Ellen.
    I would be grateful to hear from anyone who might have further information on either Florence or Ellen.

    • Jer Kennelly

      Contact me I have information on Patrick McAuliffe poet born 1896 from a big family.
      Jer

      • Michelle Jones Pollack

        Thanks for posting this Jer. I suspect the original poster might be from a different branch of the McAuliffe family.
        Patrick McAuliffe was my uncle – thanks so much for posting this information – having his poems is priceless.

      • Michelle Jones Pollack

        Jer –
        Thanks for posting the information on my uncle, Patrick McAuliffe. What a treasure to have his poetry after all these years. Of note, Pat was also an artist, fiddle player, ventriloquist and singer. I shared your post with our family Facebook group – thanks again!

        On another note – Bronwen Davis, it does not appear that you are directly related to our branch of the McAuliffe clan. You may be interested in the McAuliffe Heritage Centre in Cork – they have a Facebook page, periodic gatherings of the Clan and lots of McAuliffe history. Best of luck with your search.

        • Bronwen Davis

          Thanks Michelle,
          I am a member of the McAuliffe Heritage Centre’s Facebook page – no one seems to have any information on my branch, nor did a lady I contacted in Listowel who kindly asked her relatives for me. One of the children went to Dublin and I believe is the line in which a Stephen Mortimer McAuliffe or Mortimer Stephen McAuliffe has links to the legal profession. I had hoped to go to the gathering next year, however it seems the Australian govt is not going to let folks travel overseas without a significant reason until well past mid-2021.

        Thank you Jer.
        As per Michelle, we may be from different lines.
        Do you have Kennelly family from the Listowel area who in Australia? I have read a couple of accounts from some of the Kennelly/McAuliffe folk here.

  8. Kathleen Quinlivan in Guestbook

    Hello Moyvane! Greetings from the town of Orchard Park in the beautiful Buffalo/Niagara region of western New York State. I discovered your website while searching for information about the poet, Gabriel Fitzmaurice, and was delighted to read the information about him on your “People” web page.
    Much to my dismay, however, of the 11 individuals listed on this particular page, there is no mention of any women. Just curious as to why this is the case, and hoping you will let me know.
    Many thanks,
    Kathleen Quinlivan

    Hi, I’m trying to find out details about the O’Flaherty/Flaherty/Scanlon lines from Moyvane. Particularly any descendants that moved to England, or possibly spent time on the Isle of Wight. Many thanks

    Hi,

    I am helping a friend with some research into her family. The woman’s relatives are Buckleys from Kealid/Derry. They were Buckleys, children of Timothy and Ellen Walsh and the emigrated to Chicago in 1880’s. In advance of a visit we were wondering if anyone would know where this family of Buckleys are buried? Mary Buckley was the woman’s name and her siblings included Ellen Buckley (married JeremiahO’Connor), Margaret, Patrick, Mary, Johanna, Honora, Michael, Timothy, Eliza, Michael and Catherine. Many thanks.

    • Eileen Walsh

      Eliza Buckley married John M Hanrahan in 1883 in Moyvane parish. They lived in Kilbaha South.

  13. Chris Robertson in Guestbook

    You are probably correct, my hope is that I can get in touch with one of original the Mulvihill families that first settled in Moyvane and see if they might have some historical insight.

    • Edward Mulvihill

    Hello Moyvane!
    I am looking for some genealogy assistance with the Mulvihill’s (Mulville). My wife and I met several wonderful people and the Pastor when we visited Moyvane in August of 2017 as our daughter was the 2017 Washington DC Rose of Tralee and we were in Tralee for the festival.
    We are looking for relatives of Michael Mulvihill and Honora Mullins who were pioneer settler of Newton (Sandes?) . They had a son Timothy, born 1831 who came to America in 1853 via Canada. They also had a son John ( my direct line), who was born around 1814 and ended up in Edina Missouri, USA and died in 1895. He was married to Margaret Roach from County Limerick. We don’t know if they were married when the immigrated to the US. We have hit a brick wall in getting past this point. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    • Martin Moore

      Unlikely to get any further, I’m afraid.

      Michael Mulvihill, probably is from Moyvane [formerly Newtown Sandes]

      Honora Mullins is unlikely to be from North Kerry [but this cannot be ruled out as there was a Mullins family in Tarbert]

      So, if looking in Kerry, you need to focus in on Michael. Presume you have looked at http://www.irishgenealogy.ie? [It is free]

      Any trace of the Mulvihill Mullins marriage record?

      Martin Moore, Tralee

    Just a note of thanks to all who attended The Rambling House on Thursday 7th November 2019. We were visiting from Sheffield, UK. My mother Joan Fitzpatrick sang ‘The Green Glens of Antrim’ and ‘Dear Kingwilliamstown’. This was a great evening of huge local talent and we delighted to be a part of it. We will think of you all with fond memories.
