    Hey There!!

    Brian Keane here, relaxing in SOUTH KOREA!! I got board with Dublin andI have fled to greener pastures. I’m here teaching English for a year, living on an Island off the South Korea. I’m having a great time, but it’s great to have the website to keep up with everything. Best of luck in the championship lads, Listowel up next. Bit of a test there.

    All the best,


    P.S. I sitting here in a PC room next to a guy who claims he is from Ballyhahill CO. Limerick!! Small world eh??

    Hello Moyvane, I have to say I miss everyone, and wish I was there. I hope to see you all again real soon.


    hello, Stephen Kiely here! son of Willian Kiely- Aughrim. Older residents may remember him, but will probably know my cousins the Kielys and the Walshes better. You may have met me on one of my regular visits. I will be back again in a couple of weeks please God, to see the Kingdom bring Sam home again and maybe enjoy the last day at listowel races. Cairrai Abu!

    Wonderful site. Now who are my Hanrahan relatives? Anyone know anything about John Hanrahan who married Ellen Collins, from Newtownsandes (Moyvane) Then immigrated to Ohio. Cousins to my Flavin family. (My ggg grandfather married Ellen Collins sister, Mary) Thanks for any lead.

  9. Jim Cogan

    Fantastic site. Moyvane should be proud. The site should be used as an example of what can and should be done in each town.

  10. JJ Mulvihill

    Thanks! Paddy Drury wrote a version of “Valley of Knockanure”. (I have the words).

    I’m interested in this song and always believed that it was written by Bryan MacMahon (Tim Leahy wrote yet another version). However, on the Peggy Sweeney DVD “Kerry: A Kingdom of Song”, authorship is credited to Kiely O’Mahony of Athea. Does anyone know anything abour Mr. O’Mahony (dates, etc)
    and whether or not he really did write “Valley of Knockanure”? (I’m working on a book on Irish songs)

  13. John McLaughlin

    Can anyone tell me when Paddy Drury was born and when he died.

  14. Anne Marie Feeney-Charland

    What a wonderful site!!
    I have had great fun this afternoon taking an aerial view of Moyvane, listening to Kerry radio, touring the pubs, etc. Great fun!
    My grandmother was Hannah McAuliffe of Newtownsands.
    I visited the area in the 1980s.
    Best Wishes To All,
    Anne Marie
