    hi all from moyvane

  2. Sandy Pierce

    I am researching my husband’s family tree. His grandfather, Patrick Joseph Pierce, was born in Coolkerang (I can’t find the town but I know is was near to Listowel) in 1871 and came to the US in 1885. He had a brother Richard and several sisters. I’m not sure if any of the family is still in the area of Moyvane but I’d love to hear from anyone who knows of any family of Patrick Pierce.

    Thank you for a wonderful site. My wife is descended from John GREGORY, born about 1826, and Johanna STACK, born 1830, of NewTownSandes. They left for America in 1848. John’s brothers Richard, George and Kindler also came to America somewhere around that time. Kindler married Johanna Stack’s sister, Elizabeth “Lizzie S.”. Johanna also had siblings named Edward, Patrick “Pat”, Mary, Nora, Ellen (Who married Charles “Charley” O’Connor) and Katherine “Kate” (who married Patrick ADAMS). We haven’t found the names of John Gregory’s parents. One source said Johanna Stack’s parents were Edward Stack and ??? Driscoll, while another source said they were Patrick Stack and Mary McCarty. We plan to be in Cork for our grandson’s christening this summer. If we can do that, we hope to visit Moyvane and get a greater sense of my wife’s heritage.

  7. Judy Enright

    My husband is Tom Enright whose family came from Moyvane. We were there once visiting his relatives, Kitty Collins Kearney, Peg Collins and John Collins. The last I heard was that Kitty was in a nursing home. My husband’s grandfather was John Enright married to Margaret Collins–aunt to Kitty and Peggy –all from Moyvane. There was a Bryan Enright there who owned a grocery store but we didn’t get a chance to meet him.

    We have three sons, Brian, Dan and John. Dan found your web site.

    I love your site. I am coming to Ireland in late February in search of ancestral sites. I am the granddaughter of Hugh Goulding (Golden) of Cloonprohus, son of Michael and Johanna Woulfe Goulding. What church would they have been baptised in in the late 1800’s? Church of the Asssumption in Moyvane? And where might I look for their graves? ANy Gouldings still in the area?

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

  12. Gary Gerschoffer

    My name is Gary Gerschoffer and I am doing family research on my great grandmother Ellen Muvihill Scanlon (b.1868) who immigrated to the United States in the late 1880’s. My cousin provided the name of a family, John Lynch, who at one time and may still live in this area who may be a relative. Hopefully, someone may be able to put me in touch with John or another possible contact?

    Thank you in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide.

    I’ve just read the confirmation of Fr. Gerry Roche’s death. Fr. Gerry’s friends in Encinitas share in the loss and send condolences to the family. He has been a treasure to all whom he served. May his soul rest in peace.
