You may like to Know about Con Kennelly of Askeaton who had 14 children ,
Con's Parents were Ml Kennelly and ? Hart.
When Con was digging a grave for a Miss Conway he found Bell's in the grave
this was in 1912. The bell's are now in Multyfarnham [preserved ].
A collector offered Con £100 for the Bell's he refused the offer. I think
that Con had a daughter Margaret who Married Murphy they had a son a Priest

Bob Pattwell forwarded your message to me. That's my Martin PATT in the census and our PATT ancestors are all from Cloonaman. Do you have any PATT's in your tree? Have I written to you before?? I was in Kerry in 1995 and visited Kennelly's Pub in Ballylongford (on the corner of the main street) and heard a Kennelly recite his brother's poetry in the pub (during writer's conference week).

Hi Susan.

I am connected to the Pattwells from the Lindons and Dore Family.

It is very hard to get Kerry Data.

Ballylongford is on Local Ireland site. Brendan is my 4th Cousin.

Good to hear from you. Thanks for email.

I may not have emailed you but I have certainly spent quite a lot of time in your site. It is excellent!

Have found the odd bit of new info there too which has been great. Although not getting any further back with our northern County Kerry O'Connells We have recently made a connection with Melbourne links to the family after putting together a lot of BDM data I was able to get on line.

O'Connell from the Christchurch NZ line was in Melbourne recently and made the break through while she was there.

It was a bit like the amazing breakthrough we got by finding you.

Bishop in Dublin ? .
Oliver Plunkett 1625 to 1681 was Cannonised in 1975.

Hi Cheryl,
A Cunningham was sent to Auatralia just after 1798 he lived in Tipperary was
said to have come from near Listowel Co Kerry. He was involved in the Castle
uprising where he was killed c1802. His trade Stone Mason.
Jeremiah Kennelly was tried in Cork on 14th Aug 1823 and later sent away ,
he finished after leave in Tasmania where his wife went out to him. His
trade in later life was a tailor.
Jer may have been in the Tumut area as a storeman. I have more on him and a
short list of convicts but have lost the papers for the time being will
search again.
A record made of teaching stories of a Cunningham teacher of Donegal was
available from a Fr Darcy of Dublin some yrs ago. John & Tom Kennelly ,
James Griffin , Ml Walsh, Fennell, Corbett, and James O Donoghue were all
sentanced to be hanged on June 1st 1822 they may have been transported. I
think they are of the Co Limerick area .Trial 30th July 1823 of Tom Kennelly
sentence transportation .on 22 May 1823 , 21persons sent away including Ml
Kennelly. Hope some of this info will ring a bell.
All the best

Mc Mahon :
I am Terry, descended from Bryan McMahon b. 1831 or 1837 who came to New
Zealand circa 1855, and married Margaret Devane in Australia on Dec 17,
1866. Bryan had brothers Patrick, John and Owen, and daughter Ellena b. Jan
13, 1839 and another daughter. John m. Ellen Tangnay on May 22, 1864. All
are believed to have left Co. Kerry (Molahiffe, Mile Height or Ballyseedy
areas), some to the USA and some to Australia for the gold rushes. Bryan's
father was Thade (Timothy) who m. Margaret Hannafin. He had brothers Jermiah
(Darby) who d. April 16, 1857, and who m. Mary Murphy who d. Jan 31, 1878;
Terence who m. Johanna Murphy Jul 14, 1839; Owen who m. Catherine
O'Sullivan; Denis; Brian who m. Catherine Enright; Charles who m. Ellen
O'Sullivan and Daniel. Their father was Terence who m. Margaret Moriarty and
he d. Dec 10, 1840. His brothers were John who m. ? Flynn; Owen who m. Nora
Stack in 1810; and Timothy who was a half-brother. Their father was Darby
(we believe it could have been Dairmaird or Jeremiah) who d. 1778 and who m.
firstly M. O'Sullivan the mother of Timothy; darby m. secondly Eleanor
O'Mahony who was mother to the other three. Darby had 9 sisters whose
details are not known. Darby's father was John McMahon who m. Catherine
Moriarty. John's brothers were Brian, Jeremiah, Timothy and Terence. John
would have been b. circa 1710. His father was Terence who was b. circa 1680.
We believe he was one of four brothers who came to Co. Kerry from Co. Clare,
and he settled in Molahiffe. Two of the others are believed to have gone,
one to Knockanure (north of Listowel in Co. Kerry) and one to Kilmoiley. A
fourth went to Co. Limerick, where one line included the French connection
through Jean-Baptiste de MacMahon (John MacMahon) b. 1715. Terence stayed in
the Molahiffe area, and his grandson Darby (and probably Terence and his son
also) are buried in the ruins of the old Molahiffe abbey near the church at
Firies.

Someone in the area may have better knowledge of the graves and their
inscriptions. We would dearly like to hear from anyone with this knowledge.
We would also like to hear from anyone with any interest in any of the
people mentioned above. Unfortunately the older records in the Molahiffe
parish were destroyed by fire, but the family were Catholics, and leased
land for potato farming. Terence's G/G/Grandson Jeremiah (Darby) leased land
at Bushmount off Daniel C. Coltsman, and Jeremiah himself sublet land to
Timothy Cahill. This was in 1853.

Please send all information/inquiries and we can
swap information. We believe we came from the Co. Clare MacMahon/McMahon
family who descended from the O'Brien Kings from Brian Boru.

I heard a story of a Collins girl stealing away in the night and went to the US. If she is still alive she should be 80 or 90yrs old now. she may have left Ireland over 50yrs ago. She may have been a niece of a Hennessy woman of Guhard Lisselton. No relations left now I think..

I heard a story of a Collins girl stealing away in the night and went to the US. If she is still alive she should be 80 or 90yrs old now. she may have left Ireland over 50yrs ago. She may have been a niece of a Hennessy woman of Guhard Lisselton. No relations left now I think..

important as men I believe that women should keep their maiden name with
their married name for example as my Mom name would be Donna Jean

Daughter of Helen T. Kennealy) she provided latest information.

Hi,
still looking for any records of john cronin and Helen Kelleher they lived at THE LOTS Knockanure 1923. Thanks.

Steve cronin.

Great grandmother, Annie O'Connor, & her sister, Kate, emigrated to Philadelphia circa 1875 from Tralee. Parents were Michael & Johanna O'Connor. Annie married William W. Campbell in Phila. Great grandfather, John J. Kennelly, born in Listowel emigrated to Philadelphia around 1873. His parents were Michael & Catherine Kennelly. John married Catherine McElroy in Phila. Any info on original Kennelly or O'Connor families appreciated.


I am trying to trace the roots of John Holly (could be spelled Holley) who was a native of Glin and died at the age of 57 in 1925.
He is buried in Kilfergus, cemetery in Glin.
It is understood that he lived in the United States for a number of years and was in t he U S Army.
His grandson Paddy Holley is now living in Asdee and is anxious to trace his roots

Carole Withey


Hello,
My name is Sharla Kennelley McMaster.
As far back as we can trace, a relative of ours Daniel Kennelley, born 24 Dec 1775, County Cork, Ireland and emigrated to America.
My husband and I will be in Ireland 8 JUly 2004-22 JUly 2004.
Where would be a good place to look for records of this man?
My father, William Samuel Kennelley(born 21 June 1921) has done much of the research on our family once they arrived here in the states and I know he would be interested in knowing them back farther.
Thank you for your assistance.
Sharla McMaster

Hi I just discovered your web site and found it very interesting. My grandmother was Hannah Shine and she was born in Newtown in 1880. She emigrated to America in 1898 through Ellis Island. My husband and 2 children just returned to America last Thursday after spending 10 days in Ireland Six of which were spent visiting cousins in Asdee. We also spent time visiting my mother's first cousin Kitty Shine in the nursing home in Listowel. We visited the graveyard, church and drove past the house in Moyvane. It seemed very strange not going in this time over. I look forward to reading more of your articles on the website and would like to sign the guest book. Sincerely, Teresa Keahon

I am interested in obtaining the book.........The Boro and the Cross . I live here in the U.S.A. and my ancestory goes back to Moyvane My Great Grandmother 's name was Bridget Kennelly and she married Edward Liston in June of 1880 in the Chapel in Moyvane ....I would appreciate any information as regards the history and how to obtain it of Moyvane ..............Thank you .........Patrick McGuane



Hi Jer , My Grandfather was William (Bill)liston who lived on Chapel Street in Tarbert .

I thank you for the information as regard;s the Boro and the Cross , Would like the address or email of the bookstore in Listowel (Danny Hannon). Thank's again ........Patrick McGuane

From The Cork Examiner, 22 November 1847 -

STATE OF THE COUNTY KERRY.
--------------
(From the Tralee Post)
As already announced, there was an attack on the Tralee
Workhouse this week.
At Killarney, on Monday, the Guardians were obliged to
call in the military to preserve the peace and prevent
violence.
In Dingle, the Relieving Officer was obliged to receive the
protection of a police force.
Threatening notices have been served on the best
landlords and most attentive guardians in Irraghticonnor.
On Wednesday last, some persons went to a tillage field
near Blennerville, out of which the crop had already been
dug, to turn it up for the sake of any small potatoes that
might have been left in the ground. The owner of the field, a
man named Kean Mahony, came to prevent them, armed
with a loaded gun, and some hot words arose, during which
a young man named Flynn raised his spade--he says to put
it on his shoulder, preparatory to going away, but Mahony
asserts that it was to strike himself--on which Mahony fired
at him, and shot his right arm to pieces, just below the
shoulder. Poor Flynn was brought in to the County
Infirmary where the wounded limb was since amputated by
Dr. Crumpe. The young man still continues in the most
dangerous state. He bore the character of a most inoffensive
lad.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - A Philip Cunningham, Templemore, son of Augustus Cunningham, Clonmel, who died Feb 2004 is I believe a descendent of the 98 leader of the same name who left Moyvane, married a Clonmel woman named Black, ran a pub there and worked as a mason before he died for the cause in Sydney. You may have better luck with that phone number, in getting the dates for his parents and his father's(Augustus') father to trace back. From Mikey Joe Enright, Swindon, England.I came across your website by accident when I was researching my family roots. It was lovely to read about Knockanure, a place I remember so well as a child. My father, Patrick Enright, was the eldest son of Mary (nee Finucane) and Jeremiah Enright. Mary's family came from Moyvane, I believe, and Mary and Jeremiah settled in Lissaniskea, where I believe my father was born, and where I spend many happy summers visiting from England as a child. The old house has gone, but my aunt Nell still lives at Lissaniskea in a new bungalow near the site of the old house. I remember a lot about Knockanure, like Enright's Bar, the old National School, and the old church, before the new church was built. My uncle used to meet us at Kilmorna railway station on the donkey and cart, which I used to ride on when my uncle took the milk to the creamery in Kilmorna. Such wonderful times!! 20 Feb 1858Of LAWRENCE CUSIC, native of parish Newtownsands [co. Kerry]; when last heard from was in Sidney, Ohio, and moved to Iowa. Information received by his sister, Hannah Cusic, Crawfordsville, Montgomery county, Indiana.

The first lady visited a World Vision project in Zambia as part of a four-country tour of Africa. I am trying to trace the roots of John Holly (could be spelled Holley) who was a native of Glin and died at the age of 57 in 1925.He is buried in Kilfergus, cemetery in Glin.It is understood that he lived in the United States for a number of years and was in t he U S Army.His grandson Paddy Holley is now living in Asdee and is anxious to trace his roots

 

Hi from Jer Kennelly.
Got this e mail
Flavin may give you a lead to some of your relations.
Jer


I saw your reference to Newtownsandes the a rootsweb Kennelly page. You seem to have access to some facts and I was praying you might have what I have been searching for.

I am trying to find info on a "Murtagh (Mortimer?) Kennelly, born in Newtownsandes in the late 1700's. He Married Catherine Flahaven and had 4 children who emigrated to Canada. There might be other children also who stayed in Ireland or went somewhere else (U.S., Australia,New Zealand?), I have no idea. The 4 who travelled to the Ottawa area in Canada are Martin b.1807, Bridget b. 1793, Ellen b. ?, and Catherine b. ?.

There are at least 4 other Kennelly clans throughout Ontario, Canada, but we can't make any connection as far as relationship, even though they all seem to have come from the same area (Kerry, Limerick) of Ireland. Seems to be an old tale of some disagreement early after arrival in Canada and kinship was never claimed after that. Doesn't seem to be anything some Irish lads would do ... oh no!

I was hoping to get at least a small link to my g-g-g- gran. I have much of the line complete since arrival in Canada, and am hoping to go back a little more.

Thanks in advance,

Shaun Kennelly

The Kennelly Commons was officially dedicated on May 26, 2004. This newly completed center of the college is an outdoor plaza and pedestrian hub comprised of striking stepped entries into the Lindloom Student Center and the new Bleha Center for the Performing Arts. Bill Kennelly was a founding trustee who truly believed in "Think Students First." His vision for the college is further reflected in the new commons.

The Kennelly Commons was made possible through private contributions and an economic stimulus capital projects grant from the state of Washington. Donors are recognized throughout the Kennelly Commons on engraved granite tiles installed on the steps and seating circles.
