ANCESTORS: Mulvihilll’s of Gurtomasillihy

My great-grandmother was Ellen Mulvihill (1853-1939) of Gurtomasillihy, Moyvane. She was baptized June 4, 1853 in Moyvane, daughter of John Mulvihill (1812-?) and Bridget Kenelley (1824-?).
Ellen married Cornelius Shine of Gortdromasillihy July 30, 1875 in Moyvane. They had 10 children, 4 of whom emigrated to the USA.
John Mulvihill (1812-?) and Bridget Kennelley had 4 children that I could find, Ellen (1853-1939), Cornelius (1855-?), Honora ((1841- ?) and Patrick (1841-?)
John (1812-?) was the son of John Mulvihill and Mary O’Connor. I am interested in comparing notes with anyone connected to these folks or to the Moyvane.

VISIT to Moyvane; Senior Editor of The Huffington Post, Craig Kanalley recently journeyed from the US to Ireland to explore his family heritage, his family came from Co Limerick and claim Kerry ancestry, he was in Moyvane and Ballylongford also discussing facts about relations.

THOUGHT: To do nothing that can either annoy or offend the sensibilities of others, sums up the principal rules for conduct under all circumstances—whether staying at home or travelling.” Emily Post, Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics and at Home, 1922.

UNAIDS estimates that 34.2 million people worldwide are living with HIV. It is about 30 years since the disease erupted.The cost of a year’s supply of the medication decreased from more than $10,000 per person in 2000 to less than $100 in 2011. Dec. 1st is World Aids Day.

REFERENDA: Nancy Kennelly, who is a resident at the Abbot Close Nursing Home in Askeaton, is a petitioner who has put the State on notice of her application for hearing by Justice Iarfhlaith O’Neill. Ms Kennelly claims that in voting yes through the postal voting facility, her vote was swayed in light of the subsequent Supreme Court ruling that the Government referendum campaign material was not impartial and weighed towards the yes vote campaign.

SHOP: The people of Carrigkerry and the surrounding areas are glad to see the shop and filling station re-opened by the Moloney family from Abbeyfeale. The shop first opened on the 8th of October 1984 under the ownership of Pat, and Kathleen Nally from Ballyloughane.  It provided a service to the local community and the passing public, until it closed on 13th May 2012

Sunday November 25th What is heaven?
Heaven is the endless moment of love. Nothing more separates us from God, whom our soul loves and has sought our whole life long. Together with all the angels and saints we will be able to rejoice forever in and with God.

If you have ever observed a couple look at each other lovingly or seen a baby nursing who looks for their mother’s eyes as though it wanted to store up every smile forever, then you have some inkling of heaven. To be able to see God face to face-that is like one, single, never-ending moment of love. [from YouCat, Youth Catechism of Catholic Church §158]
