    I have just learned that my GGrand parents were from Newtownsandes, have been researching this for about four years. I was lucky enough to have traveled to Ireland just last month, before I knew of their birthplace. I would appreciate any help anyone is willing to offer. Their names are Edmond and Mary(Marian)Fitzgerald Fitzmaurice. I know that they had 10 children, and at least 3 came to Philadelphia with them in 1890.

    Just want to say a very big HELLO! to my long lost friend in Moyvane, Gabriel Fitzmaurice. Found this very interesting website by accident when searching for some of Gabriel’s poems for children in my school. Congratulations on a wonderful, informative site. Little did we know back in 1970-1972 (Mary I Training College) where we were all going to end up. Knew that you were a brilliant poet but never knew that you could sing!!! You kept that one very quiet!!
    The camcorder photos taken of the children in your school are beautiful, a lovely memento for their parents and the worldwide audience.
    Wishing you continued success and happiness in lovely Moyvane. Keep up the terrific work! Slán is beannacht, Mary in Cork

    Great website.

    I’m trying to find out any information about a Mary Barry from Murhur who had a daughter Kate in 1925. I believe Kate then moved to Dublin in the 1950s.

    I’d be very grateful for any information about these ladies.

    Am very interested in the history of this lovely place and I am hoping to visit quite soon, my interest is regarding my Grandmoter who was born there in Shamrock Cottage under the name of Fannie Buckley born in 1902, her parents were John & Harriet Buckley.

  10. Kerri-Ann Grunstra

    I was hoping to get in touch with retired police sergeant Seamus Groarke, son of Ann Kitson. My grandmother, Marcella Gorman, is his first cousin and I was looking for information on the rest of the Kitsons that stayed in Ireland.

    Any information that anyone can pass on to me is greatly appreciated.

    Message for Krista

    I saw your message of 21 February 2008 on the Moyvane web-site and I admit to being a tad confused. Fr. Maurice is, was, my grand-uncle. He was one of twelve children of John and Marie Walshe and we have a photograph of the whole family. There was one other priest, Father Eddy, a great favourite of the family. He sponsored many of my uncles and two aunts out to the States, to Syracuse.

    Anyway, I would be interested to know more about Father Maurice being your grandfather. The mind boggles..I suppose most families have skeletons in the closet but ours may be wearing a dog-collar.

    I am compiling a family history at the moment so perhaps we could swap any other information which we have on the Kissanes.

    And, of course, if anybody out there does have any information about the Kissanes who lived in Leitrim East then I would be very grateful….
