Very interesting. I came by you via another site while researching one of my heroes, the late Msgr. Hugh O'Flaherty who was definitely NOT a "Nazi Mole"!! The so-called warning about Allied troups approaching was Msgr. Hugh's way of letting the "Gerrys" know that their regime days in Italy and elsewhere were numbered. Sorry, Professor Naftali, but I have to disagree with your findings. Did you not read the wonderful research findings of Fr. Robert Graham, SJ, who published the Vatican archive writings about the activity of Pius XII -no doubt including all who collaborated in the efforts to save Jews and others- during WWII? Pius XII's efforts so impressed those of the Jewish community in Rome that, at the end of the war, the Chief Rabbi of Rome converted to Catholic Christianity, taking the name "Eugenio" at his baptism in honor of Pius XII whose baptismal name was Eugenio. That says ALOT! Unfortunately, many on this side of the Pond don't know about the studies regarding Pius XII and are so quick to condemn him.

Just to say thanks for all the excellent information and the work done in putting it all together - real history.
I'm a grandson of the (Jack) Thompson who had the bike shop ("Cycle Merchant Killarney" on his notepaper) in New Street in the early part of the last century. He had been a successful racing cyclist in his youth. From selling bicycles he went on to selling cars and running coach tours. He died in 1940. Mrs(Beo)Thompson - the golfer - lived until 1963. I knew her as I was born in 1945. She lived at 98 New Street and we often visited her there in the 1950's and early 1960's. They had seven children, of whom my father was the eldest.May the Lord have mercy on all those mentioned in this article.

I found this site so interesting. I think I may be related to the Wilkie as I see a photo of my aunt Joan Hartnett (Keegan) my mother was Julia Hartnett born in Killorglin. I know my grandmother Brigid is buried but I have no idea where my grandfather Timothy Hartnett was buried.
my other grandfather Thomas Pugh (old R.I.C.) died in Killarney on 28 Nov. 1923. Would love to contact the wilkie family to see if they could help.

Feel I have made a discovery for future explorations although I was really searching the Net to find the town from whence came Sydney Swans Australian Football League (AFL)player. Wathced the Swans win the Grand Final yesterday and the lad doing a little jig when he received his medallion. Thought the pub, in Kerry, where family and friends gathered to wath the game, seemd like a very cosy place to be. Haven't been to Ireland but like many, many Australians have roots there - in Tipperary and elsewhere(?).
I shall return to this site when time and work permit. I am a busy migration consultant in Melbourne, where the game was played.

Kind regards

I have been looking at the guestbook, and i was fascinated by peoples stories, i will have to go back to read the other half, as i saw that it will take me a long time to read them all. my father was born and raised in RHODES KELLS. CO.KERRY. in 1906. he ws one of 9 siblings. when i went back many years later, it was so proud and overwhelmed that the homestead is still standing, albeit it was made out of drystone walls. the same front door, i felt as i had stepped back in time. it was a happy and a poignant time for me, i was taken to kerry s a 2 year oldand again when i was aged about 8/9 then i stayed on Valentia Island, on my aunts farm,who was my dads only sister, they had a farm, i attended school there, my teacher was a Mr,Griffin, and he had always lived on Valentia, till he passed away in 2002. i had many happy times on then farm in CREOGH, sais as crawe i believe..when we went 2 years ago, the land had been sold and it was just the farmhouse left, and a stunning view of the sea where we used to run down and skinny dip as children, being a little girl from london, the culture was so different,but children are very adaptable, and soon settle down. i do wish i had asked my dad more about his childhood, but he never said too much about it.i was always keen to research about my irish roots my grandparents.in Ireland. i really love my kerry roots, and feel as much of part of it when i visit, it is my other home. well done for the site being here, i found it by of way of asking on a site for genealogy given to me, and am i pleased, i cant tell you what it means to me, good luck and god bless.

Great website. I recognize the family names that my father would fondly talk about.

My father, David Sheehan, born 1900 in Garavanne--a few miles outside of the village of Mountcollins, Limerick--just across the river from Brosna.

There is a David Sheehan listed in the 1820 Tithe Valuation --http://www.geocities.com/bluegumtrees/Genealogy.html

--who is possibly my great-great grandfather.

A welcome respite in the almost impossible task of tracing great- grandparents who most unhelpfully de-camped to London without leaving old addresses for reference.....

It took me 0ver 50 years to finaly visit my home. Last Ocober my daughter brought me to Ireland. Unfortunitly we depended on my sence of direction rather than common sense, and managed to miss every thing we had planned on seeing. However, this was a blessing for we saw what we never expected to see, orange butts on sheep, a huricane in Dingle, the police (Garda) station in Enniscorthy, and two rainbows driving from Nass to Limerick. And oh yes, the best eclaire I've everhad, just west Roscrea. My parish priest Fr. Joe Hennessey of St. Josephs in Kingston, MA. told me that I would feel like I came home. Thank you to the people of Ireland for making me feel that way. I would have taken sometime to check on relatives, but in the back of mind I suspect that they would be better off not knowing me. My son who is a paratrooper in the US Army was miffed that we did not include him in our trip. I had to start planning a trip with him when he is home on leave in 2004. His sense of direction is better than mine. He has yet to fall up out of an airplane, and usually hits the ground in tact. Thank you for this opportunity to express my gratfulness to the people of Ireland and we will see you soon.
God bless you all, and may the Blessed Virgin Mary pray for our troops.

Because I love her so much, I want to find out where family comes from, to see the land of her herritage. County Kerry is truly a beautiful place and I can't wait to see it with her. I am of Austrian and Italian herritage and have gone to Austria many times. I, like my Love, have a great pride in our roots and this site allows me to get "aquainted" with her home country. She has never been to Ireland, but this summer we are going to Austria to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversery and will be going to Ireland, to County Kerry afterwards. We will be spending (hopefully) 1 week in County Kerry. I Can't Wait! Thanks again for a wonderful site and I will be visiting again.

I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to all who have contributed to your site with family information and records transcription. I found a reference to this site on a message board in Rootsweb and Ancestry.com. I found a couple of records for my family and it brought tears to my eyes. My mother has searched over 30 years, and it was your site that gave us the first link to our Noonan family. For all these years we only knew 'County Kerry' was where we came from. Now I have been able to make contact with possible living relatives in Minard West. Again, with all my heart, I thank each of you for the time and effort you've made to help us find our families.

The site is just super on all counts; real serious work & information — hats off, say I, and five gold stars on the report card to all concerned!

As a direct descendent of the Rt. Hon. Henry Arthur Herbert, MP, builder of Muckross House, Killarney, through the first marriage of his second son, Charles James Herbert, to Adèle LeMoyne, of Montreal (a marriage never correctly nor fully chronicled by Burke’s), I read the “Muckross/ Herbert Excerptsö with great interest, but would like to correct some information in the quotes from Tim McCarthy’s Recollections (published privately in 1996):
1) Edward Herbert, of Castleisland, married Frances (not Francis) and her family surname (of the Earls of Kenmare) was Browne, not Brown;
2) Edward was not the first Earl of Muckross as my cadet branch of the extended Herbert family descended from Richard Herbert of Colebrook/Coldbrook, Gwent, Wales, in the 16th century (in this case through his son John) was never ennobled;
3) Arthur Edward Guinness (double “nnö please), first & last Baron Ardilaun, did not marry a Herbert although his wife, Lady Olivia Hedges-White, was the daughter of Jane, Countess of Bantry, née Herbert and a sister of the builder of Muckross House.
Muckross House (muckross-house.ie) has published information on the family history both in its elegant Guidebook, and in various issues of its twice-yearly Newsletter, while every issue has information about Co. Kerry history, especially as pertains to Killarney.

I’m also very pleased indeed to be a Kerry man on both sides, my paternal Grogan ancestors having also lived near Castleisland; I’ve been able to trace them exactly.

A number of comments on your website.
1. Historians do not regard Dorothy McArdle’s Tragedies of Kerry no more than her lengthy history of Ireland as reliable source material in matters concerning the war of independence (Anglo-Irish war) and civil war, as she was a partisan supporter of De Valera and for many years one of his leading propagandists. Thankfully there are now available some good accounts of the atrocities carried out on both sides during the civil war in Kerry.

2. During the war of independence the most active parts of the country were Dublin and parts of Munster – particularly Cork, Clare, Tipperary and Limerick. Kerry was conspicuously lacking in action, although a small number of distinguished Kerrymen participated in the war outside their county, particularly in Dublin. Indeed other activists during the Anglo-Irish War were wont to say in frustration that all Kerry did was allow Casement to be taken. This, of course, was an exaggeration, because there were some small military actions in that county and some notable acts of moral courage (such as the Listowel Mutiny). It was not surprising that there was so little action within Kerry’s boundaries. English tourists had been coming to Kerry in numbers from early in the 19th century and far from being a far-flung outpost on the periphery of the Empire, certain parts of Kerry were quite sophisticated, largely due to English visitors. An empathy had grown up, or at least an economic relationship, which made attacks on the British unpopular among the generality of the population.
3. When the Civil War broke out Kerry sprung into action, causing wonderment in Dublin and in those counties which had borne the brunt of the fighting against the British. Kerry was up-in-arms against the Treaty and there was real action now in the seizure of barracks and arms. It was said that many old scores – nothing to do with independence – were now being settled. That may or may not have been the case, but is an unlikely explanation. What did happen is that Michael Collins – a man vilified by Dorothy McArdle for decades – sent down the Dublin Guard to Kerry. This unit had developed out of Collins’ original Squad (Twelve Apostles) which had grown into a group of some thirty during the Anglo-Irish War and eventually was formed into a full battalion, led by Paddy Daly, second-in-command of the original squad. Having participated in the bloody war in Dublin (including the elimination of the Cairo Gang and the execution of informers as well as numerous other selected assassinations) these were tough, ruthless, determined men. In the event they suppressed the anti-Treaty forces effectively, and ruthlessly where they were opposed, suffering themselves small causalities (sometimes inflicted with a similar ruthlessness by anti-Treaty forces).

I'm researching a Confederate general, Humphrey Murphy (American civil War) and an intrigued that the Humphrey -- lardly an Irish given name -- appears twice in your really helpful charts. If something positive comes of this, I trust by then to remember to advise you! This can take months, even years. (In NYC I became an acquaintance of the great Kerry footballer, Gega O'Connor (about 1955-60)-- a rival of my late brother, Bob who played for Mayo - tho we're from Tyrone. Gega was a gentle soul but a determined competitor -- one of the best.

My family is from Kenmare. I was born in Chicago, Ill. in May 1947. We visited the parish in Kenmare and the priest was very helpful in locating my grandmother Sheehans family and places of birth. I think it is the most beautiful

My uncle and my mother's brother, John O'Brien, as a youth of 14 or 15, was taken from a sick bed at Dunquin, County Kerry, and the family had no word for about a year. He had been incarcerated in the Killmainham jail. The family never found out what was the reason for his being taken. It is interesting that he later became a prison guard at Meridan, CT but died at the young age of 54.

I have purchased the old Hickey house at Knocknagullane, and am in the process of renovating it. I plan to spend several months of the year in Kerry.

My father was illegitimate - born 1902 in East London of Alice Hagerty. His father's surname was Nelson but he did nt marry my maternal grandmother. I know nothing aboutmy branch of the family - whatever was known was never spoken of by my father. NOw I am in my 72nd year I doubt taht I shall find out very much more - except I am a Hagerty!

This is my second time visiting this site. Although I was born in October 1921 and attended school in Dublin until I was 14 years old and like lots of Irish Kids had to help the family eat two square meals a day. Reading the terrible brutality of the civil war in Kerry nearrly 70 years later turns my blood cold. Brother against brother is evil. God grant that those left behind have found some peace. I will return to read more of your wonderful articles. By the way as a litdtle kid i used to cheer for "Kingdom" oys at Croke park in the 1930`s. Good luck to you all.

Far away from the island I was born in during 1922 I had never fully understood the ravages of civil war until I read these articles. Somehow I never realized the hate and bloodshed that the rebellion of 1916 left behind.
To me the the 1944 invasion of France was the horror story of the 20th century but the killings were impersonal but 1923 in Kerry the killings were personal and bloody
God be with the survivors of both sides.

He married my grandmother, a Josephine Collins, and they lived their married life in Pittsfield, Il. He was born 8/23/53 (died 12/5/29). My wife and I, along with my sister are coming to Ireland in August and would like to do some research on our family forebearers, but don't really know where to start. Perhaps you can direct us.

My own people grew up in Market Lane - O'Sullivan Darcys (mostly respectable!). My grandfather had a forge in town and my father has told me many stories of the same time. The Killarney Lanes - My father always says "Times were harder then, but at least we weren't happy". He's a great storyteller, but not much of a man for sentiment! Thanking you sincerely, Jimmy O'Sullivan Darcy.

many thanks to this site. comming from an irish immigrant familiy who came to liverpool in the 1800s. i am currently being interviewed for a post in large immigrant detention centre. looking back and understanding what made my familiy leave their home, makes it easier to see why so many people still feel so dispossessed. i am sure that if i am offered the job understanding my history will help me to see clearly, others who still have that long road to travel.

Do you know where I can find these individual numbers preferably on the Internet?

Interssting My great father wa a renowned faction fighter with the black thorn stick. Older people related to me his skill with the stick even though he was a small slender man. T hechallenges would take place on the mountain top in co leitrim where the bordeing parishes met. they probably challenged each other and had some fun. Anyway Arthur McGreal was a champion but I am told they killled eachother in some of the big fights. No killings reported from the Leitrim (Ballinaglera FACTION) WHICH MY GANG WERE MEMBERS.

Brilliant site. I've known for years that my greatgrandfather, Thomas Fitzgerald, was born in Cappagh in the Cloughane DED. But when I found the 1901 and 1911 census here, it was only then that I knew that Cappagh consisted of only 14 houses! The simple picture of life that emerges from those bare facts of names and ages and occupations and number of children is magical. Please don't stop building -- this is a glimpse into another world.

thank you

ps who knows, maybe we should get in touch with matt damon and/or chuck norris....while steering clear of a hollywood production, an indie film/documentary wouldn't hurt......and if the ladies are learning, the children will always be loving.

My grandfather, Maurice J. Walsh, came from County Down, I am told, in the 1850's. He lived with his brother in NYC through his high school years. He had four children, William Henry, Maurice James, John Robert, and May Walsh(Durkin). I am the son of William Henry Walsh. and the third in a "broken line" of Maurice J. Walsh. I don't know about my ancesters in Ireland, and I don't think that I'm related in any way to the famous writer, Maurice Walsh, of Ballydonoghue, Lisselton, Kerry (The Quiet Man is one of my faverote movies, but who doesn't like John Wayne and the other cast members.)

All the best to you folks in Ireland and I hope to visit that area one day. I was in Belfast (1963) during my Navy days, but only for one day.

Greetings,
I read the letter from your president, "Cherishing the Irish Diaspora," with tears streaming down my face. Even now as I write I am weeping. I simply had no idea we were remembered, much less included in, seen as a part of you. Cherished.

It has been generations since my family left. They brought several strands of Ireland in their coming, Sammons, Kinneys, more. The story goes that I had an ancestor with a price on his head for the crime of teaching his fellow Irish to read. He made it on to a ship that was bound for Canada, and was almost safely away, but the ship was boarded by redcoats. They said they were there looking for Andrew Kinney. One by one, men stood, and said, "I am Andrew Kinney," until the soldiers knew they were facing down more than they could handle, and they left, and he was away to Canada, and thence to the United States.

That was generations ago, yet Ireland calls to me as if I had left it myself. I've talked to others who feel this way. It's a physical longing, an underlying awareness, a restlessness, music playing just out of hearing. It is a keening, and does not quiet.

The music, the names, the religion, the sense of self, have been passed down from one to the next. When I typed my name in the box above for this guestbook, I felt a unfamiliar leap of pride, a sense of identity, a spark of knowing that my name might speak to someone reading this, that they will recognize the name, and know me and mine. I see this sense of Irishness in my own daughter, who at the age of 11, asks me if we can go to Ireland, in my 8 year old son, who, when asked what kind of music he likes, replied "Celtic." He said to me recently, "I don't think there's anyone in this town who can teach me to play a bodhran."

Yesterday, we celebrated the holiday of Thanksgiving, and before the meal, we prayed, and then I told my children the story of the Famine, of people eating grass, of neighbors too weak to dig graves, pushing huts in on families to serve as a resting place. I sang `Kilkelly' for them, and my daughter pointed out that if the man's mother died quickly, she didn't starve--poignant insight into that line, `you don't have to worry.'

I told them this so they would understand the abundance that was spread before them was not bought cheaply, but with life and effort and pain by those that went before. Then I offered up a toast. I lifted my cup to those who left, to those who struggled, to those who made our lives possible.

My daughter responded with a toast to those who stayed behind, those who let the others go, who made leaving possible.

We remember you. Oh, we remember. It's as if the memory, the grief and love are stamped in our very cells. But only in reading this, did I know for the first time, that we are acknowledged, remembered, that a light burns in the window for us.

Thank you.

Kathleen Kinney, descended of Andrew

I would like to thank you and Mr. John Willoughby for the records you have provided to all of us at this site in finding our ancestors. Mr. Willoughby's "Marriage Records in Dingle 1864-1870" has cracked open a wellspring of information for me especially. I have found my great-grandfather and great-gradmother's wedding date of marriage; they were from Liosdargan, Co. Kerry. In addition to this, I also found the dates of two of my great-uncles!!

I had estimated these dates previously and now will use this information to confirm it. As far as I am concerned, this is primary information. I have seen some of my family's records at St Mary's church in Dingle and I know that these records are accurate.

Absolutely fabulous having this Griffith Valuation made available to us whose forebears came from Ireland. Its a shame that our Irish records don't go back beyond about 1820's, but I understand why since studying Irish history as hobby in recent years. I recommend reading all you can about Irish history and doing things Irish as frequently as you can particularly with new generations. I will use tjis site much more now that I've found it, researching family names like McGillicuddy, Donohue, Ready etc.. Bernie

The potato was brought to Ireland two hundred years before the start of the famine. What did the Irish eat before it became a major crop. I also do not understand why the Irish did not flock the areas where they could fish. Irish are creative, tough tenacious and courageous. Some non-Irish person asked me why the Irish did not set up camp near the shores. I could not answer I need your help Thanks

I loved the site and have spotted family surnames and possible relatives at various reference points. I know there is a wealth of old papers and photos within the family wardrobes & lofts and I am now inspired to take time to sort them as I believe this is where they may be of interest to many. I found that the reference to the early teachings of Latin & Greek explained why the farming community back some generations (my grandparents & contemporaries) were so learned and cultured!

I deeply appreciate the effort you have expended to provide a website that will, hopefully, help me trace the Trant Family lineage, which I hope to be able to share with my children and siblings. The tragic loss of several members of our family in recent years, including the death of my younger brother, Daniel Patrick Trant,a former professional basketball player in Dublin and Belfast (during the early 1980s), and municipal bond trader with Cantor-Fitzgerald, who was killed in the September 11th attack on One World Trade Center, has caused me to pursue the geneology of the Trant Family to ensure that my generation, and those that follow, will know of their family's amazing Irish and American heritage.

Thank you for this outstanding service you are providing.

I have found this site interesting. My granmother ( my mothers mother ) was born in Knocknadariv (sp??), Brosna in 1910. She is the last surviving member of a family of 17 ( Broderick ). She emigrated to America at a young age and married my grandfather who is from Glountane in Kerry ( pretty close by by current US standards but a bit of a distance in the early 1900's in Ireland ). I have been back and have met her nieces and nephews who live in the area. They are very nice people who showed us the land my grandmother was born on ( the house is gone ). I am going to try to get a copy of this book to give to grandma. I think she will find it interesting. The author seems to have come from the same generation.

An excellent website. I am carrying on the genealogy research my deceased twin sister started a year before her death in April 2000. My father John George was born in 1908 in Liverpool Eng. and emigrated from Liverpool to Quebec in 1925. He spent some time in an orphange. His mother Maria had married sometime before he left for Canada time and and we have since met his stepbrother and sister. Not much help there with genealogy. Nothing said about who my grandfather was?? Most research so far done at Latter Day saints family research centre. Bruce Alexander Graney, Yellowknife NWT Canada

Our Grandmother(Elsie) Elizabeth who was Ellens second child (the first of Andrew's) was taken with her sister back to Killarney (1895?) because Ellen was afraid of becomeing pregnant again . When Elsie Meisner and her sister became teenage Ellen returned with them to NY and their father(1905?or10). It is said they went to a Convent school Norwood and their grandmother was O'Mahoney.

Visit Dún Chaoin on june 11&12 this year, thirst I saw the pictures in the Pub and after that on advice of the Youth Hostel saw the film sides of Ryan's Daughter what is left over.

Saw two days earlier the film in Killarney Youth Hostel so when I find the school and a day later the village was pionted out to me, I could see everything back in my memory. I was suprised but I had a Wonderful day in Dún chaoin at the pictures.

You have to make an impression in the Blasket centre of the sittings and show some pictures how it was during the film shooting. I found it very dissapointed to see nothing about it .

Hopefully you can save the school and the remains of the village because I think the are a part of Irish film historie.

Is there also a sight like this for County Cork somewhere??? You can be sure I'll be back here again and again looking for my husband's ancestors. Thank You!!

If there's any information to be found on Kerry genealogy, it will be found here. This is an incredible site, run by an amazing woman. One can't be a genealogist researching Kerry ancestors without coming away with a deep regard for Mary. Many of us would be lost without her encouragement, assistance, and the vast wealth of knowledge she shares so readily.

My father, James Fitzgerald, was born in Tipperary, on May 27, 1901(?) and died on June 29, 1947. His parents were Michael and Mary Ann. There were 15 children, products of two marraiges. I think my father was of the second marraige. He emigrated to the United States through Canada, date unknown. He came to Canada from either Ireland or England, having served in the English (Navy?) and been injured in World War I. I remember stories that as a youth he had some involvement in the IRA.
My mother, Mary Kiernan Fitzgerald, was born in Carrigallen, Leitrim, on April 18, 1902. Her parents were John and Margaret Kiernan. There were three daughters, the last, Rose Ann, of a second marraige. She emigrated to Canada in 1924, then to the United States. I remember her saying she was in Canada for 5 or 6 years. My parents met in New York through other Irish friends and married on July 31, 1940, in New Rochelle, New York.

I don't have a lot of information to start with; so I did have some trouble with the births and marriages because they were only sorted by the years and not the names. I'm not complaining - this is wonderful! I'll be back. I've bookmarked you and am sending it out...Next time I come, I'll bring my family. Thank you!

Hi! I am researching my GGG grandfather's family. His name was David Nolan, christend 31 JUL 1841, Ardfert Roman Catholic,county Kerry, Ireland. The name of the townland he was christend in was Garrynaneaskagh. It is in Kilmoyly. A hint for any one researching in this area, Ardfert Roman Catholic parish also had a parish in Kilmoyly. His father was also named David Nolen, and his mother was Catherine Houlihan. The witnesses were John and Bridget Nolan. This is a great site for helping with research. I'm hoping soon to have my ancestars family together. The record's for Kilmoyly, are now lost, but some are in the Casey volumes.
If any one else is researching the Nolan's from this area e mail me, and we can work together.

Moriarty (believe Michael) from County Kerry married a Lawler (Kate, Katherine). I am not sure when they came to USA, Minnesota or if it was their parents that came to the USA. I know they had 2 sons and at least one daughter, Margaret, whom died young of consumption (TB). I know the migration to America had something to do with the famine. Mail welcomed. Thank you all of you Kerry fellowmen.

Forefathers from, I think Mallow Ireland, 1734 Timothy HIERLIHY, had an apparent brother Philip HIERLIHY, born about 1758. Both lived and fought in Connecticut, USA. Both came to Canada, about 1784, to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, as United Empire Loyalist. The spelling of the surname has changed over the years, however I continue to look for relatives who still spell the surname as HIERLIHY. Great Site. I am from Kamloops, British Columia, Canada.

What a wonderful site! Even tho' I have not yet been able to trace all the way to Ireland, it feels like coming home.
My brother emigrated back to Kerry and I am there once or twice a year..it must have broken hearts to have to leave during the famine.

Also the first bishop of the diocese of Manchester,NH,USA came to the USA from Castleisland. What was his name? What is the best source of family names for Brosna
