    Mr. Thomas O’Grady, I read your recent note and it was a great surprise. Your father the late Thomas and I were first cousins, making your grandfather and my mother Bridie brother and sister. After I was married your father and I kind of lost contact. Therefore, to see your note was very welcomed.

    Hello Moyvane:

    Interesting site.

    Catholic parish records show that my great grandfather, Thomas Keyes, was born in Ahalahana in 1840. His father was Daniel Keyes and his mother was Deborah Hanrahan. One of my great aunts, Mary Keyes (born 1835), married Richard Collins (son of Michael) in 1861. One of their daughters, Deborah Collins, married Michael Moriarty in 1887.

    Thomas Keyes came to Morgan County, Missouri, USA, in 1857. I don’t know the history of the other Keyes family members, though the family included Daniel and Robert (twins born in 1841), Mary (mentioned above), Deborah (b. 1852) and Richard (b. 1857).

    If anyone who visits your site has information about these families I would be interested in making contact.

    I was hoping to track down some information regarding my grandfather. He was born in Moyvane on March 15th 1898 to Patrick and Bridget O’Grady. He studied at St. Michaels of Listowel and after his studies joined the IRA. He spent much of his time between the years 1916 and 1923 fighting for the cause and found himself in and out of political prisons. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Please can anyone identify this north Kerry church? The photograph was taken about 1983. It was the parish church of a Michael J O’Connell (about 1880 to 1941), the grandfather of a lady now living in the USA.

    I am trying to help her identify her grandfather’s parish. On a visit to Kerry last summer, I found St Michael’s in Lixnaw where my granny was baptised and her parents were married. It meant such a lot to me. Thank you.

  14. John Myles

    I am trying to trace where my mother Catherine Mary Myles, nee Kennelly is buried. I know it is in Murhur cemetery but is planning on a visit and would like to know if there are any records to show us where in the graveyard she was buried.

    She died on 31st March 1948

    Can anyone in Moyvane please guide us with the right connection in how we could get this information and plan our visit to see the grave.
