    Our thoughts are with everyone in Moyvane during this terrible time.

  2. John J. Walsh III

    I take great pride in seeing the Web site with news of home. I’m a great-grandson of Patrick Mulvihill Walsh, who left the family farm at Galebridge in the 1880’s and went out to Chicago, later bringing some of his family members to Chicago. My cousin Jeremiah still lives on the farm at Galebridge. His mother, Julia, passed away several years ago, rest her soul. We last visited Jerh in February, 2006. Love and best regards to him, and to Joe at Joe’s Bar as well. We’ll be thinking of you all and will raise several jars to your health this weekend for St. Patrick’s Day. Slainte! –John Walsh

  3. Sean O'Connell

    In the old Knockanure cemetery there’s an old stone dedicated to James O’Connell and his father Edward O’Connell. Also mentioned are James children Michael and Anna. It was commissioned by Fr. James O’Connell, parish priest, of Melbourne, Australia. James children were born in Lahardane over by Ballybunion and James himself died in Listowel 1868. Does anyone know of this family and where Edwards home townland might have been.

  4. Gerald Moran

    I visited your lovely town in 1985. My father Augustine James Moran was born there December 16, 1923. His parents were James Moran and Hannah Nolan. I believe James worked at the Creamery. I’m wondering if any Moran decendants still live in the town.

  6. Krista Kay

    I am 44 years old and have recently found out that my great grandfather was Fr. Maurice Kissane born June 1883 son of John Kissane and Mary Walsh. Ordained July 16, 1911 by Bishop Davis at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Davenport, Iowa. Does anyone have any other information, i.e., a photograph?

  7. Sean Drury

    Great website. I am an American, but have ancestors from Murher & Leitrim parishes. I believe they moved to Tarbert around the 1830’s. But would be happy to communicate with any Drurys, Frawleys or Brummells in the area.

  8. Raymond C Parnell

    Was so nice to read about your history. One day I will visit

  9. Michael T. Sullivan

    thank you for this site it is quite good and well organized, My grandfather lived in newtownsandes(moyvane) but left for the U.S. in 1919 Joseph D Sullivan his father was Edward Sullivan who stayed in the Irish Free State with his wife and family .

  10. Bill Kelly

    I like the old photos it takes me back to the short time i worked with John Joe Sheehy and his late sister Shella on there farm up there in Aughrim. I wonder if John is still around and any other news on that road up to Aughrim. I knew a few pepole along there.

    Thank you. I hope to go back there just to see the place again but I dont think I could afford to live there now.

  11. Martin Keane

    Well best wishes to all for a healthy and happy new year. I’m hoping some out there will acknowledge the O’Gradys from Newtownsandes, the birthplace of my mother and her sisters Mary, Elizabeth My mother Bridie and their brothers Daniel and Thomas.It would be great to hear from someone who still remembers. I know my uncle dan and tom were very active during the troubles. I still have a cousin his name is Patrick Horan His late father had a forg just outside of town. Looking forward to a positive response.

  12. Ted O'Keeffe

    Great site. Keep it up. My first connection with Moyvane was when my father arrived home in Tralee, sometime in the late 40’s/early 50’s I think, with a superb brindle bitch greyhound. I remember him saying he bought her from somebody in “Newtown sandes”. (I later found out that this was Moyvane). Anyway the dog was a terrific animal both as a pet and a great runner in the local Tralee track-particularly over the hurdles.
    Her racing name was Humphrey’s Pride and I assume that name would have been given by her owner in Moyvane. Would it be possible that somebody in Moyvane would know of the family/owner of that dog so very long ago. I have a lovely photo of her with some of her offsprings taken in the early fifties.
