    I had a great grandfather & grandmother who I belive are form Moyvane. Patrick Scanlon (b. abt 1865) & Ellen (Mulvihill) Scanlon (b. abt 1868) both emigrated from Moyvane to the US about 1880. Are there records avilable for this time frame that can be researhed? Both were Catholic and I am told the church records were destroyed in a fire.

    I have just read the essay which outlines the events surrounding that very tragic ambush at Knocknanure.
    It is my favourite Irish ballad and it is great that such an accurate account of the events are recorded.

    It is only by reading such reports that people will actually realise the reign of terror that occurred throughout Ireland and in particular Limerick Kerry Cork and Tipp during the years 1919 to 1922

    I enjoy reading about your great Country, My family, Walsh came from co Kerry to the states in 1852, the Stack family as well. I hope some day to visit your wonderful Co Kerry and Moyvane for sure as that is where my great great grandfather John R Walsh was born and lived. Good luck to you all.

    I am proud to be of Irish heritage, especially Co. Kerry and Moyvane.

    Your USA/Irish Friend.

    I’ve just traced my Quinn grandfather to Leitrim Middle, which he left around 1900. He was John Quinn, son of John and Mary Quinn. Several of his siblings immigrated to the US, and several others remained, namely Matthew (who settled in Leitrim West), Michael, probably Stephen, and maybe a few others. I hope some of the “Quinns of Leitrim” who I see in the wonderful Moyvane Notes on this site will recognize these names and contact me for exchange of information, and old photos if there are any. I have only one old photo, reputedly of Quinns from that era; if we can identify the men in the photo I’d be happy to contribute it.

    I just discovered that Newtownsandes is now Moyvane. My husbabds great grandfather was a sergeant in the police dept there in the early part of the 1900s. His name was Joyce. If anybody has any info about him we would like to know.

    I hope to visit your town in 2009.

    My family originate from Moyvane, this was something I only discovered a few years back, I am very interested in the history of the place naturally.

    Can anyone provide information on Sandes the landlord. Where did his family come from, who was he and where is he buried.

    Greetings from Timonium, Maryland USA (the Colonies)
    I’ve just been informed of the Mailing Address of a long-lost friend residing in Moyvane, Counry Kerry. This is one of the most heart-warming things to occur; as she’s a lovely lady named PAT KING. We’ve been trying to track her down for 2 years.

    My Grandmother, Hannah McEnery, emigrated from Moyvane (Newtownsands) in 1901. I hope to visit with my sisters, Peg and Pat, in the next year or 2.

  15. John F. Murphy

    Finding your website brought back some great memories of football games I played in for Listowel Emmetts against Moyvane many times before I emigrated in 1957.
    One of the players I enjoyed playing against was the late great Bernie Callaghan.
