    I have been researchimg my family history and I believe that Ellen McElligott and Daniel Enright are my great great grandparents. Hannah Enright their daughter married Jeremiah Cummins in 1891 and their son Dan was my grandfather. I would be interested in contacting Ursula Enright who wrote an article on this website about Enrights pub in Moyvane.I want to confirm that Hannah was their daughter.

    I was very interested in your piece about Thomas Moore and his family connection to Moyvane.

    I am researching my family’s history and trying to confirm (or refute) a supposed connection to the great man’s father. I wonder if you would know anything more about John Moore’s family, particularly any brothers (uncles of Thomas Moore) – or if not, if you can suggest anyone who might know about this?

    My great-great-grandfather was a Harry Moore (approx. 1790-1881). From mid-19th century, he was in Brosna, but may have come from Moyvane or Abbeyfeale originally. I’ll be doing a bit of research in Dublin in November, so any info or clues would be much appreciated.

    Thanks for your time,
    Paul Leahy (Leicester, England)

    Wondering if I could get some information on death/burial records for Moyvane? My Great Grandparents came from Moyvane and I have been trying to obtain information on where their parents, and one of the siblings, are buried. Curious if you could tell me how to go about getting that information? I have records received from the local church, but nothing about death/burial. Any information on the Tydings family, Michael Tydings & Margaret (Kissane) Tydings, or their son Thomas Tydings, would be greatly appreciated. My Great Grandparents were Daniel Tydings and Mary Kennelly.

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide me.

    This website is a wonderful introduction to your community!

    We are visiting Ireland soon and will be spending
    Oct.28 in Moyvane and Duagh.

    My cousin, Michael O’Connor, and I have been attempting to trace our Irish roots. My great, great
    grandfather , Brian O’Connor,emigrated from Moyvane to the U.S. in 1852.
    I am proud to say he was a valuable addition to his new home. He developed a very successful farm, and
    served his community in North Central Ohio in several elected offices before his passing in 1917.

    My wife,Eileen, and I look forward to becoming acquainted with Moyvane.

    In the meantime , if you have any hints you can share on where to begin our search, it is most appreciated.

    See you soon.

    In researching my family tree I have discovered that my paternal relatives the O’Briens seem to have lived here and I am keen to visit this town in the near future, I am very impressed by the way it seems to have retained it’s individuality in a world that is becoming increasingly homogenous.

    Hello to Maura and Denis O’connor and all the family from Cathy, Ray, Sarah (11), Tomas (8) and Sean (5) in Melbourne. I hope you are all well and miss you all. It’s a shame Australia is so far away. I’m not great at staying in touch, as you may have guessed. I do think about you all alot though and have many happy memories of time spent with you – so long ago! Write to me any time as I’d really love to hear from you.

    I am so excited to have come across this website. My Great Grandfather came to the United States from Newtownsandes (Moyvane) around 1887. His name was Maurice Woulfe Scanlan or Scanlon. I was fortunate to have been able to visit a cousin (Anna Maria Kennelly) in Moyvane in 1996 and tour the town and house my Great Grandfather was born in. My mother (Jean Scanlan-Faust) and Great Aunts (Molly and Helen Scanlan) taught us to treasure our Irish heritage. My husband and I named our children with Irish names in honor of our Irish ancestors. A fond hello out to my cousin Anna Maria Kennelly and Timmy…miss you.
