NOTES FROM NORTH KERRY
Mr. John Stack has declined the doubtful honour of representing Tim Healy in the House of Commons. * * * The Whigs held their Convention in Listowel on Tuesday, and selected a Mr. Mac-Sweeney for their candidate.
* * *
Mr. MacSweeney was editor of the evening edition of the debunked National Press, the most blackguardly newspaper of modern times. That is not much to his credit. * .. * This selection is very rough on Mr. Michael Flavin. To do him common justice, Mr. Flavin did the whole work and kept the Federation alive—not only in Listowel, but for miles round.
* * What-Mr. MacSweeney ever did for Ireland in general, or Kerry in particular, is utterly unknown. * At the first meeting held by Mr Haviland-Burke, the Independent Candidate, he uttered no offensive word of any man, and asked that nothing should be said against Mr. John Stack. * * * Is this the reason why the Seceders' own newspapers did not report their speeches?
All Independent Nationalists willing to give help or information to Mr. Haviland-Burke, are earnestly requested to communicate at once to his conducting agent, Mr. J. J. M'Elligott, at Listowel.
An immense demonstration for the principles of Independence will be held in Listowel next Sunday, July 10th, at 2 o'clock. Mr. Haviland-Burke's supporters are expected to be present in strength, and to rally in their thousands to the banner of Independent Nationality.
O Donovan letters 1841 describes the old Knockanure church on the hill situated about three miles east of Listowel as a well preserved ruin.
The Dominicans had a Friary nearby in Barrett's land where there is a well called friars well. They Dominicans came to Knockanure after they were banished from Tralee c1652, they left Knockanure c 1804 to take up parish duties, among names mentioned were Fr Edmond Stack died 1781Fr Bartholomew Shine came to Knockanure 1791 and made PP of Brosna and died in 1827.
From Moyvane Notes.
MARY STACK: 100…NEARLY (From Moyvane Notes)
That was Mary Stack, Glenalappa, 99 years and 218 days, who, unfortunately, ran out of time on Tuesday, May 16th, 2017. Mary was an exceptional lady, lived alone in one of the old cottages with a loft and until recently she slept upstairs in the loft. She climbed the ladder (no stairs) and then pulled up the ladder after her when she went to bed. She made sure no unwanted visitors had access to her space. She did all her own wallpapering and painting right up to the end. She cut her own hedge standing on a ladder! She baked for Ireland, brown bread, scones, cakes, you name it she did it. At her funeral one of her family, the younger generation, told me she has never cooked a Christmas dinner, Aunty Mary always did it. She would travel to Tralee on the bus, get off at the train station and walk to the hospital to visit someone who was a patient in the hospital. Mary always cared for people and about people. Her early life was spent taking care of many, many people. Most people knew her from the many years she worked in Walshe’s shop with Margaret & Dan. The most extraordinary thing is Mary lived on bread and tea, no meat, no potatoes, just bread and tea! She was small, light, hardy and walked with a spring in her step and a smile on her face. Sorry Mary for writing this, I know you wouldn’t want it but you didn’t tell me not to do it and I wanted to share with those who didn’t know the exceptional person you were. Mary was predeceased by her brothers Pat, John, Jim, Mike and Rich, sisters Bridie and Nora. She will be missed by her sisters Hannah and Teresa and brother Tim and many relatives too numerous to mention. May she rest in peace.
HC Deb 23 February 1891 vol 350 cc1374-9
MR. STACK (Kerry, N.) I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Government have decided to accede to the influential local Memorial recently forwarded to Dublin Castle in favour of the construction of a light railway from Listowel to Tarbert, in the County of Kerry, connecting Newcastle and Abbey-feale with the Port of Tarbert; and whether he has been apprised of the necessity of taking immediate steps, by the opening of some such work as this, to meet the widespread distress which prevails in this part of North Kerry? MR. A. J. BALFOUR, A Memorial on this subject has been received, and is receiving attention.

STACK, STAK, STAKE * *THE EARLY STACK FAMILIES IN COUNTY KERRY viz.
In 1286 the Stack family Anglo-Normans originally came from England. In the first part of the fourteenth century and by the 16th century they were completely Irish, being among the foremost Kerry adversaries to English. They were from the FitzGeralds, allies of the Fitzmaurices, lords and knights of Kerry. The Stacks of Crotta settled in Kilflynn in 1320 and expanded out of there building a resident at Crotta. In fact the town of Kilflynn was known as Stackstown. Their association with the area was further perpetuated by the Stack Mountains, which are situated between Tralee and Abbeyfeal. This entire area around Crotta is known as Pubble (Probal) Stack or Stack's country. Their association with Clanmaurice is perpetuated in the Stack Mountains between Tralee and Abbeyfeale and a district in the vicinity was long known as Pobble Stack or Stack's Country.

Marriage resembles a pair of shears joined so that they cant be separated often moving in opposite directions yet punishing anyone who comes between them.
Financial headaches are bad severe pain extends as far down as the pants pockets.
Loud mouths don't have to worry about food shortages. They usually eat their words.
Life is a constant struggle to keep money coming in and teeth and hair coming out.
By the time most learn to behave they are too old to do anything else.
Some have many temptations because they know where to find them.
The reason the ram ran over the cliff he didn't see the ewe turn.
It is better to have loved a short guy than never to love a tall.
A person who is busy as a bee. May wake up to find his honey missing.
Some cocktails make you see double and feel single.
A partner sticks with all the trouble they wouldn't have if they hadn't joined.
Today is the day you worried about yesterday.
Taken from Tom and Peg Stack
Sr Mary Ita O Sullivan
She is gone, that gentle Sister ,
Kindly ,gracious, blest,
Gone to the Heart of Jesus,
Sweet home of peace and rest.
Like him in far off Nazareth.
The hidden life she led,
She walked the lowly ways of earth
But angels knew her tread.
Like him was pain her portion ,
Like him she bore the cross
Even to Calvarys summit ,
There learned the gain of loss .
At length the roseate tinted clouds
Athwart the Eastern way
Proclaimed the glad approach of dawn ,
The dawn of the Perfect Day .
And now in spheres celestial
Her soul by love possessed
Will know the deep , ecstatic joy

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
SERGEANT-MAJOR'S DEATH-The death in action of Sergeant-Major John Hennessy,
Leinsters, has occasioned keen regret in his native town, Listowel. The
deceased was 21 years in the army, and served through the South African war,

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
Between 1847 and 1852 Over 1,200,000 of the Irish people emigrated to other lands. More than 1,ooo,ooo of these went to the United States of America, Between 1851 and 1905 4,028,589 emigrants left Ireland- 2,092,154 males and 1,936,435 females .1852 the highest total, 190,322 people, and 1905 the lowest, 30,676 .Since 1892. 1841 the rural population was, returned as 7,052,923 and the urban as 1,143,674, 1901 rural 3,073,846 and town 1,384,929
1901, the population had diminished as compared with 1891 by 245,975. Of the total population of 4,458,775, 2,200,040 were males and 2,258,735 were females. The inhabitants of the rural districts (3,073,846) decreased during the decade by over 380,000; that of the urban districts (1,384,929) increased by over 140,000. Between 1891 and 1901 Belfast increased from 273,079 to 349,180; Dublin from 268,587 to 289,108; and Londonderry from 33,200 to 39,873. Cork (75,978), Waterford (26,743) remained the same over 10 years.
Thanks so much for your reply to my inquiry regarding the O'Connell's from
Newtownsandes. I do not know of any relationship to the priest you mentioned,
but I do not know much about my O'Connell either. The sum and substance of
everything I know is as follows:
My great grandfather Maurice O'Connell was born @1866. He immigrated to the
US in @ 1886 and settled in New Jersey (across the river from New York). His
brother John, born @1868, followed @ 1889-1890 and settled in the same
area-- known as the Oranges ( suburbs of Newark NJ) Maurice married Anna
O'Brien in 1889. Anna was also an Irish immigrant and is believed to be from
the same area as Maurice. Anna's mother's maiden name was Ann Kirby. My great
grandfather's marriage and death certificates both list his parents as John
and Catherine O'Connell.
My mom never had any idea where her grandfather was from, although she did
recall her mom saying that he took in a lot of immigrants to give them a
start. I checked the census returns for New Jersey and found some of these
people he took in. They were all O'Connell's. Through the Ellis Island data
base I was able to locate the manifests for the ships on which they arrived.
Immigrants arriving after 1899 had to list where they were going, where they
were from and who they were to stay with. Each of the people with my great
grand list Newtownsandes as the place they last resided before coming to the
US and each of these people provide my great grands address as the place
they were going. here is a website (jewishgen.org) that allows a search by
the town people came from. Through that search engine I located no less than
eight people named O'Connell from Newtownsandes going to stay with my great
grand. The information I have on them is as follows:
1.James O'Connell immigrated 1903 from Newtownsand. James apparently left
and returned in 1907 with a John O'Connell both from Newtownsandes and both
Identifying my great grand as a cousin. (James stayed with my great
grandmother throughout his life. His obituary indicates his mother's name is
2.Two Lawrence O'Connell, both from Newtownsandes, immigrated a week apart in
1904. Both of them were age 25 and both said they were going to stay with
"their brother James" at my great grand's address ( so was my great grand
running an illegal immigration operation?)
3. 1906-A John O'Connell (age 27) from Newtownsandes arrives to stay with my
great grand. Refers to my great grand as his "brother" (not possible since
Maurice's brother John was already here)
4.1907-Another James O'Connell(age 25) arrives a week before the returning
James (actually I am not sure which is the original James and which is the
returning James) Again says going to his cousin (my great grand). Says he
last resided in Newtownsandes and was born in Ballymacelligot
5. 1911- Lawrence O'Connell (age 34)returns (yet again) again going to his
brother James at my great grand address. Says he last resided with his sister
Catherine in Newtownsandes
6.1913 (this is the strangest one of all) A Daniel (age 33) and Mary
O'Connell (age 36) arrive. He had never been in US before. She had been here
previously. They are listed as husband and wife. Daniel says he last resided
with his father John O'Connell in Ahalana, Newtownsandes. Mary says she last
resided with her brother James O'Connell in Ahalana. Both are going to my
great grand's brother John. Mary refers to John as "her brother John" ;
Daniel refers to John as "my cousin John" (were they also intermarrying?)
Finally in 1914 Daniel returns again having his nearest living relative as
his father John in Newtownsandes. He is returning to the US to his wife Mary
who is by that time living with my great grand Maurice.
Do any of these people show up in your research? Do you have any suggestions?
for me as to any local sources to tap into to solve these relationships?
I had inquired in my last e-mail as to the names of the town lands that would
be considered part of Newtownsandes. The reason for that inquiry was to allow
a more thorough search of the website mentioned above. There are no less than
4000 O'Connell's in the Ellis Island Data Base. I found the ones mentioned
above by searching the word Newtownsandes and variations thereon. I thought
if there were other names that folks might use to describe the area I could
search using those descriptions as well.
Any help is appreciated.
The PRESIDENT: I move:-
Go ndeontar suim ná raghaidh  thar £50,000 chun íoctha an Mhuirir a thiocfidh chun bheith iníoctha i rith na bliana dar críoch an 31adh lá de Mhárta, 1927, chun Roimhíocanna d'íoc le Cumainn Chreidiúna Talmhaíochta agus chun costaisí a bhaineann leis sin d'íoc.
That a sum not exceeding £50,000 be granted to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1927, for Advances to Agricultural Credit Societies and for defraying expenses incidental thereto.
Mr. HOGAN Mr. HOGAN
Mr. HOGAN: A sum of £25,000 has already been voted on account. The sum of £50,000 that is now asked makes a total of £75,000. I am glad to see that this credit society scheme has definitely succeeded, and is definitely spreading. I believe that every penny of the £75,000 to be provided this year will be absorbed, and absorbed by the areas needing it most. The State advances to the credit societies in existence amount to £33,687.
Mr. JOHNSON Mr. JOHNSON
Mr. JOHNSON: Is that out of the current year's vote?
Mr. HOGAN Mr. HOGAN
Mr. HOGAN: No, since the beginning.
Mr. JOHNSON Mr. JOHNSON
Mr. JOHNSON: Could the Minister tell us what was the amount advanced out of the 1925-26 Vote-out of the sum of £100,000?
Mr. HOGAN Mr. HOGAN
Mr. HOGAN: About £31,000. The credit societies were criticised very strongly at first, and people announced that they would die before they would have them. Every attempt was made to get loans direct. Naturally that is the easiest and most satisfactory way for the borrower, whatever about the State. Everyone is anxious-we are all individualistic in this country especially when it comes to a question of credit-to get money direct, and for a long time the credit societies stopped dead because the people hoped that the Government would relent and that the money would be advanced in a way that was regarded by possible borrowers as more satisfactory. As it became quite plain that we intended to  stick to the idea of credit societies, and that the people had to make use of this very reasonable scheme which we propounded, then the credit societies began gradually to spread, and to spread in the areas where they were needed most, with one exception, the County Clare. There has not been a society established there yet. I hope there will be soon. Anyway, up to the 18th May last the number of credit societies established was twenty-one and the total advances made by the State amounted to £33,687; that is to say, the cash transactions of these societies would be about £50,000 or very near the amount the Northern Government has put out. I believe myself that the whole sum which I am asking for will be absorbed this year. The first State advance made to any society was issued on 3rd October last and progress has since been steady. The preceding period from May to October, entailed considerable propaganda work on the part of the organisers. The following is a list of the societies, showing the State advances made to them and the corresponding local deposits:
June 1 1926 Debate Dail
County Cavan-Killinagh Credit Society, State advances, £369; deposits, £203 14s. od. Scrabby Co-operative Society, State advances, £330; deposits, £165. These are the only two societies formed in Cavan up to the present, but I think there will soon be more. County Donegal- Tullynaught agricultural bank, State advances. £503; deposits, £335 10s. County Kerry-Ballymacelligott co-operative credit society, State advances, £5,317; deposits, £2,658 10s.; Gneeveguilla co-operative credit society, State advances, £720; deposits, £360. Milltown and Ballyhar agricultural bank, State advances, £1,491 10s.; deposits, £759. Tralee credit society, State advances, £7,416; deposits, £3,708. In Leitrim there are six societies. Leitrim is a very poor county and to my mind it is particularly suitable for credits of this sort, or to put it the other way, credits of this sort are particularly suitable for conditions in Leitrim.  Carrigallen credit society, State advances, £1,536: deposits, £768. Cloonmorris, State advances, £1,186; deposits, £790 18s. 10d. Cornageeha credit society, State advances, £204; deposits, £102. Eslin Bridge credit society, State advances, £988; deposits, £494. Gorvagh, State advances, £876; deposits, £584, and Kiltoghert credit society, State advances, £400; deposits, £200.
These are all new societies. There has been practically £3,000 put up in deposits in Co. Leitrim to over £6,000 given by the State. Leitrim is a poor county and these are all small societies. A point I want to stress is that this money has in the main been put up by farmers, small farmers, and the same applies to other counties also.
Mr. RODDY Mr. RODDY
Mr. RODDY: Have all these societies been organised since the outbreak of the fluke?
Mr. HOGAN Mr. HOGAN
Mr. HOGAN: There was one society, I think, in Carrigallen, but I cannot pick out for you now one or two old societies that may have been established. There may have been three of them established, but you may take it that the bulk of the deposits are all new and have been put in since the fluke outbreak. There may have been one or two of the old societies in Leitrim, but there are six societies there now. I think Carrigallen was in existence, but if it was, there was £768 put in in deposits since, and the State has made an advance of £1,536. County Limerick seems to be very much in love with this particular scheme, though it is not by any means a poor county. There are five societies in that county, only with two of which, strange enough, we have had some trouble-with the Ballyhahill society and the Glin society. I think they are working all right now. They got over £8,000 from the State, and they put in £4,000 or £5,000 in deposits. In Co. Longford there is one at Killoe; in County Louth, one at Cooley, and in County Monaghan there is a society at Ballynode. Societies are being formed at Listowel, and Newtownsandes, County Kerry; Owenmore, Co. Sligo; and Clare Island, County Galway. This will bring the total to 25.
 I believe every penny that has been voted will be absorbed by the end of the year for this purpose, and two years after the event I am absolutely satisfied that it is the right way to give credit, especially in the really poorer areas. These societies are being organised by the I.A.O.S., and I impressed on that society the necessity for the very closest supervision. I believe the closest supervision is being kept on the operations and on the personnel of the societies. It is obvious to anyone who knows the country that there could be a certain amount of wrangling in connection with these societies. Certain attempts were made in that direction in one or two cases, but I have taken care to have had three or four inspections of these societies within the last few months. From the reports I have got I am satisfied with the personnel of these societies, with the committee, and with the general management of the societies. I am satisfied that the money is being lent for right purposes, that the security is good, that the whole point of view is sound, that the money is to be repaid, and that the money is used in a thrifty and economical manner. I anticipate the minimum amount of trouble from these societies, but the trouble will come undoubtedly when the money has to be collected again. It is a question that will have to be considered whether in some cases a certain amount of extra time should not be given. I think that is the scheme as originally framed, and we can readapt it as it works out, when we will see the weaknesses of the scheme so far as they will show themselves. We can then deal with any new points, and with any gaps that need to be closed. Any other things that need to be done can be done as societies are re-organised and as we see their strong points and weak points. In a word, I am satisfied with the way these societies are going on, and I hope and think they will spread.
Mr. Finucane asked the Minister for Finance if he will extend (a) the Feale drainage scheme from Listowel bridge to Abbeyfeale bridge, and (b) the drainage scheme for the Galey river from Moyvane, Newtownsandes, to the Limerick/Kerry boundary.
Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Finance (Mr. Donnellan) MichaelParliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Finance (Mr. Donnellan): The extensions of the Feale catchment drainage scheme suggested in the question would be so uneconomic that they could not be justified.
Mr. Finucane: Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that large tracts of valuable land have been flooded during the month of May of this year? Crops have been destroyed. I would ask the Parliamentary Secretary to carry out a reinvestigation and build some embankment to prevent a recurrence of the flooding.
Mr. Donnellan: I will do so. At the moment, the report is that, to protect  those, you would have to get embankments and they would have to be put so far back that, for the sake of the amount of land that would be reclaimed, it would not be worth it. The Minister met a deputation in the matter and got a report and it has been shown to be uneconomic to do so.
Mr. Finucane Mr. Finucane
Mr. Finucane: Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that the Brick and Cashen drainage has cost £1,500,000 and some of the best land in Kerry is still subject to flooding-in those two areas? I would emphasise the need of a reinvestigation.
Mr. Finucane Mr. Finucane
Mr. Finucane asked the Minister for Finance when it is proposed to start drainage operations on the River Maine.
Mr. Donnellan Mr. Donnellan
Mr. Donnellan: The design and preparation of a scheme is in hands but, pending compliance with the requirements of the Arterial Drainage Act, 1945, in regard to exhibition and confirmation of the scheme, it is not yet possible to give an exact date for the commencement of the works.
Mr. Finucane Mr. Finucane
Mr. Finucane: Could the Parliamentary Secretary give the exact date?
Mr. Donnellan Mr. Donnellan
Mr. Donnellan: I regret I cannot give the exact date, but we expect to start work next year
CIRCULAR LETTER TO THE ARCHBISHOPS AND BISHOPS OF IRELAND
Quebec, the 9th June 1847.
"MY LORD AND VENERABLE BROTHER--The voice of religion and humanity imposes on me the sacred and imperative duty of exposing to your Lordship the dismal fate that awaits thousands of the unfortunate children of Ireland who come to seek in Canada an asylum from the countless evils afflicting them in their native land.
Already a considerable number of vessels overloaded with emigrants from Ireland have arrived in the waters ot the St. Lawrence. During the passage many of them weakened beforehand by misery and starvation, have contracted fatal diseases, and for the greater part have thus become victims of an untimely death.
This was but the natural result of their precarious situation. Crowded in the holds of the vessels, unable to strictly adhere to the rules of cleanliness, breathing constantly a putrid atmosphere, and relying frequently for nourishment upon insufficient and very bad provisions, it was morally impossible to escape safe and sound from so many causes of destruction.
Anchoring at Grosse-Isle, about 30 miles below Quebec, where they are compelled to perform a quarantine, the transatlantic vessels were most commonly infected with sick and dying emigrants. Last week at that station more than 2,000 patients, of whom scarcely more than half could find shelter on the island. The others were left in the holds of their respective vessels, in some cases abandoned by their own friends, spreading contagion among the other healthy passengers who were confined in the vessels, and exhibiting the heartrending spectacle of a morality three times greater than what prevailed ashore.
Our provincial government has undoubtedly manifested the greatest zeal and most parental anxiety in assisting the unhappy emigrants, but yet could not in due time employ the requisite precautions to meet their manifold wants. The consequence is, that vast numbers sighed, and do still sigh, in vain after the charitable care so necessary to the preservation of human life.
Already more than a thousand human beings have been consigned to their eternal rest in the Catholic cemetery, precursors of thousands of others who will rejoin them if the stream of emigration from Ireland continues to flow with the same abundance.
One Catholic clergyman alone, in ordinary circumstances, ministered to the spiritual wants of the quarantine station; but this year the services of even seven at a time have been indispensably required to afford to the dying emigrants the last rites and consolations of their cherished religion. Two of these gentlemen are actually lying on the bed of sickness, from the extreme fatigues they have undergone and the fever they have contracted in visiting the infected vessels and the hospitals on the island to accomplish the duties of their sacred ministry, and gladden the last moments of the Irish emigrant.
The details we receive of the scenes of horror and desolation of which the chaplains are daily and ocular witnesses, almost stagger belief and baffle description; most despairingly and immeasurably do they affect us, as the available means are totally inadequate to apply an effectual remedy to such awful calamities.
Many ot the more fortunate emigrants who escape from Grosse-Isle in good health, pay tribute to the prevailing diseases at Quebec or Montreal, and overcrowd the hospitals of these two cities, where temporary buildings are erected for the reception of a greater number, without still affording sufficient accommodation.
Amid the present confusion, we have had neither leisure nor opportunity to ascertain the number of orphans and families that are thrown for support on public charity.
I deem it necessary to mention that those who have escaped from the fatal influence of disease, are far from realizing on their arrival here, the ardent hopes they so fondly cherished of meeting with unspeakable comfort and prosperity on the banks of the St. Lawrence. To attain so desireable an end, they should possess means which the greater number have not, and which cannot be rendered available and efficacious, unless emigration be conducted on a more diminished scale.
I submit these facts to your consideration, that your lordship may use every endeavor to dissuade your diocesans from emigrating in such numbers to Canada, where they will but too often meet with either a premature death, or a fate as deplorable as the heartrending condition under which they groan in their unhappy country. Your lordship will thus open their eyes to their true interests, and prevent the honest, religious, and confiding Irish peasantry from being the victims of speculation and falling into irretrievable errors and irreparable calamities.
I have the honor to remain, my lord and venerable brother, with sentiments of profound respect, your most humble and obedient servant."
Archbishop of Quebec
THE PETER ROBINSON SETTLERS

The Peter Robinson Settlement of 1825 by Bill LaBranche
Peter Robinson was chosen by Under-Secretary Wilmot Horton to lead the Irish emigration expedition. Born in New Brunswick in 1785, Robinson came from a military background and a loyalist family. He served as an officer in the War of 1812 earning distinction for his honours in battle and mention in dispatches. Robinson later served two terms as a member of the Assembly of Upper Canada, was Commissioner of Crown Lands and of Clergy Reserves and Surveyor General of Woods. In 1823 Robinson lead the first emigration from Ireland to Canada. Some 570 settlers from the southern Counties of Limerick, Tipperary and Cork came to the Ottawa Valley area under Robinson's effort. In April 1825 Peter Robinson was again called upon to lead a second emigration of Irish families. In this expedition, Wilmot Horton stipulated that the accepted families must be pauper-peasants, under 45 years of age and Roman Catholic. The families came from the southern counties of Ireland.
In May 1825, nine sailing ships left Cork transporting 415 Irish families, a total of 2024 persons in all. This total number included 385 mean, 325 women, 587 girls and 727 boys. Although not much information is available regarding the voyage to Canada, it was recorded that 15 persons died in transit and 15 infants were born. The ocean voyage to Quebec, went quickly for that day and age. Only one vessel exceeded thirty-one days in completing the passage. From Quebec the families were transported to Kingston where they stayed two weeks in tents, awaiting the arrival of Superintendent Robinson. The severe heat in Kingston during their sojourn caused great stress and illness for the emigrants. Over three hundred were sick with fever and ague and it was recorded that thirty-three perished.
In August five hundred of the emigrants were embarked on a steamboat and moved from Kingston to Cobourg. During the following weeks the remaining settlers were likewise relocated from Kingston to Cobourg. From Coubourg to Smith they travelled via two methods. Twelve miles along a barely passable road took them from Lake Ontario to Rice Lake and from there the Otonabee River became the "road access" inland. The flat bottom boat could hold thirty people and make one trip each day from Gore's Landing to Scott's Plains (later Peterborough). The families then resided in huts which they constructed, until being located on their property elsewhere in the area. In the task of settlement, Robinson was assisted by John Smith and Captain Rubidge. Local residents who were older more experienced settlers were hired to construct a shanty on each lot as it was designated to a family. The standard shanty was 20' by 12'. The roof sloped from a height of 12' at the front to only four feet at the rear wall. Roads were cut through the bush and other established settlers with horses and oxen were hired to assist the new families in moving their belongings to their identified locations. Each family was supplied with a cow, an auger, an axe, a handsaw, a hammer, one hundred nails, two gimlets, three hoes, one kettle, one frying pot, one iron pot, five bushels of seed potatoes, and eight quarts of Indian corn. The new arrivals were all located upon their lands by the fall of 1825.

The O'Shea's lived in Dingle, as did the Devanes. Pat Devane, Pat Foley and Michael Dissette were founding members of the Dingle branch of the Irish National League, later known as the Land League. Heffernan may have been from Listowel but he married a Dissett and their daughter Mary married a Patrick Walsh and they lived at Carrig Bridge, Ballylongford in the 1930's. Mary's mother may have been the daughter of Michael and Julia Dissett of Carrigafoyle, listed in Griffith's Valuation.
Hi Jer ~
I have a little more info about my g-grandfather, James Kennelly, married to Catherine Barry. He was born 25 Mar 1860 in County Kerry, we think to Michael Kennelly and Catherine Mullaney. I have his naturalization papers which lists his birthdate. He left Queenstown on the Germanic in Aug/Sep of 1886, going to NY, eventually going to live in Philadelphia.
Thomas Mulvihill married Johanna Scanlon in Guernsey Channel Isles and came to Australia as assissted passengers on the ' Mary Ann ' settling in Tumut New South Wales Australia. I have some details on them but would like more family history. Kind regards Anne M
Hi from New Zealand
My grandmother was Winifred Hett, daughter of Patrick or Joseph Hett , she came to NZ in 1911 from Manchester. I think her father and mother Mary Ann (Carney) originally came from Ireland.
IMy great grandfather was related to Michael Kennealey ex England and who settled in Nebraska. his Mothers name (Michael) was Bridget Dooley Kennealey, any relation to your lot?
New Zealand, trying to find lost ancestors
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.

Two deans appointed
Gray extends appointment in Nursing, Kennelly takes office in Agriculture, Forestry and Home Economics
by Cynthia Strawson and Sandra Halme
Dr. John Kennelly and Genevieve Gray
Dr. John Kennelly has been appointed Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, Forestry and Home Economics for a five-year term and Genevieve Gray has been re-appointed Dean of the Faculty of Nursing for a one-year term.
Both appointments, made by the university's Board of Governors, are effective July 1.
Dr. Kennelly is currently professor and chair of the university's Department of Agricultural Food and Nutritional Science within the Faculty of Agriculture, Forestry and Home Economics. During the last five years the department has succeeded in attracting more than $20 million in funding to support research infrastructure enhancement. He leads a research group whose key areas of study are nutritional and genetic factors that influence the biological efficiency of milk synthesis and also its quality as a human food. His research program has contributed to improved nutritional and management strategies on commercial dairy farms, resulting in more efficient milk production and improved milk quality.
Kennelly succeeds Dr. Ian Morrison, who will return to teaching in the Faculty.
Dean Gray intends to retire from the U of A, yet has agreed to postpone this step in order to fulfill a one-year term allowing time to find a successor.
Gray has lead a number of initiatives during her tenure in nursing, including a significant expansion of undergraduate and graduate student spaces as well as the recruitment of 14 new academics. She has connected and reconnected the Faculty of Nursing to health-service partners and established strategic joint appointments and collaborative research with these organizations.
Gray has also implemented a more broadly based research support infrastructure which has lead to a more equitable distribution of resources to a wider group of faculty and lead to an increase in research productivity.
"We will harness the creative power of current AFHE staff and build excellence in areas of strategic importance through recruiting world leaders in their respective disciplines."
Dr. John Kennelly
Kennelly said his Faculty faces exciting times.
"Agriculture and forestry are the two largest renewable resource sectors in Alberta. These two sectors are key components of the Provincial Life Sciences Strategy. Our Faculty is well placed to contribute to the increased societal and governmental emphasis on health and wellness, as there is a growing awareness that we need to increase our investment in the maintenance of health rather than spending most of our health dollars on treating disease," he said.
"The Faculty has a tremendous impact on this province in the areas of agriculture, forestry, environment, and health and wellness. Along with that impact is an obligation to improve education and research in those areas, training the future leaders of these industries. We will harness the creative power of current AFHE staff and build excellence in areas of strategic importance through recruiting world leaders in their respective disciplines."
Arthritis Foundation Bestows Highest Volunteer Award
William J. Mulvihill of Cincinnati Receives Harding Award
Nov. 17, 2003 [ATLANTA] - The Arthritis Foundation bestowed Cincinnati resident William J. Mulvihill with its highest volunteer award, the Charles B. Harding Award for Distinguished Service, during the foundation's national meeting on Nov. 14, 2003, in Baltimore.
"For more than 20 years, Bill Mulvihill has been a dedicated advocate for the one in three Americans with arthritis," said Dr. John H. Klippel, president and CEO, Arthritis Foundation. "He has always looked to the future, and to focus the Arthritis Foundation on improving the lives of people with arthritis. His passion, leadership and commitment have played a key role in our success."
Awarded annually by the Arthritis Foundation, the Charles B. Harding Award recognizes those volunteers who have provided leadership and direction to the Arthritis Foundation, have given their time and talent generously to help others and have challenged other foundation volunteers to be their best.
During Mulvihill's tenure as national chair of the Arthritis Foundation from 1998-2000, one of his key achievements was bringing the mission of the foundation to millions of people through technology. Under his leadership, the foundation launched its comprehensive Web site, www.arthritis.org. Mulvihill also led the foundation to create the National Arthritis Action Plan -- the first collaborative partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to address arthritis as a public health issue -- and partnered with the Alliance for Lupus Research, a non-profit entity founded to prevent, control and cure lupus.
Mulvihill began his association with the Arthritis Foundation more than 20 years ago at the local level with the Ohio River Valley Chapter. He became vice president of the chapter in 1984 and chair in 1987, serving until 1990. He also served as Midwestern vice chair from 1988 to 1990. Mulvihill's national involvement includes past appointments as chair of the Financial Development Committee, vice chair of Councils, treasurer and senior vice chair.
Mulvihill is the senior associate athletic director, development at the University of Cincinnati and executive director of University of Cincinnati Athletic Team Scholarships. Mulvihill belongs to the Council for the Advancement and Support for Education, National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and National Association of Athletic Development Directors. He received a bachelor's degree in business from the University of Cincinnati and a master's in education from Ohio University.
Leslie Mary MacWeeney (b.1936)
Born in Dublin, Leslie MacWeeney studied at the National College of Art under Seán Keating and Maurice MacGonigal (q.v.). She was awarded a scholarship to the École des Beaux Arts, Paris, where she studied under Professor Souverbis. MacWeeney has been included in many group shows, making her debut at the RHA in 1957, and participating in (and helping to organise) the IELA (1954-1963), the Oireachtas (1955, 1962) and the WCSI (1963). Each time her address was given as Kilteragh Lodge, Foxrock, Co. Dublin. She was also included in the 1959 and 1961 Paris Biennales, and more recently in the Irish Women Artists exhibition, organised jointly by the National Gallery of Ireland and the Douglas Hyde Gallery in 1987. In the catalogue to this latter exhibition, Dorothy Walker gave high praise to MacWeeney's wall hangings of the Stations of the Cross, which now hang in the Corpus Christi Church, Knockanure, Co. Kerry. Walker deemed this series to be "one of the most important works of religious art in the sixties" and found in them "no false note, nothing maudlin, nothing trite, but a powerful emotional content" (pp.56-57). MacWeeney has also had solo shows at the Clog Gallery, Dublin (1957), and the Ankrum Gallery, Los Angeles (1961), and several shows at the Dawson Gallery, Dublin. Her work is in the collections of the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, TCD, the Thomas Haverty Trust, and the Santa Barbra Museum of Art, California.
George Morosini (d.1882)
Born in Palermo, Morosini came to London and in 1840 married Clotilde Parigiani, a well known contralto who sang in Italian opera with Gris, Mario and Lablanche; she was also a cousin of Pope Pius IX. They settled in Dublin at 134 Baggot Street shortly after marriage and Morosini immediately set up business as a portrait artist. He exhibited five portraits at the RHA in 1861.
Tony McNally (b.1953)
Born in Dublin, Tony McNally graduated in botany from UCD where he completed a doctorate in peatland ecology. He brings his intimate knowledge of Ireland's remote and wild landscapes to his paintings. He has studied art at the NCAD in Dublin, and has also spent a number of years working and painting in Northern Canada. A fluent Gaelic speaker, Tony is passionate about Celtic culture. The seascapes and landscapes of the western seaboard provide the inspiration for many of his works.
Eithne McNally (fl.1940s)
Exhibited at the RHA in 1941 and 1943 as Miss Eithne McNally and also showed a flower piece with the Dublin Sketching Club in 1942.
Remembering Heroes of Korean War
It was fifty years to the date and day, fifty years ago, February 2, 1952, tribute was paid to nine young Irish soldiers serving with the U.S. Army in Korea who were killed in action. Their
bodies were being sent home to Ireland. The body of one of the nine, Cpl. Patrick J. Sheahan of Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry - killed in action at Chungse-ri, North Korea, was released by the U.S.
Military for the Solemn Requiem Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral. Concelebrated Mass with the chief celebrant, Fr. Sean Reid, O. Carm. of Kilkenny, with over three thousand in attendance. The body
reposed before the High Altar of St. Patrick's. It was accompanied by a detachment of the Old Sixty-Ninth Infantry Regiment and the pallbearers were from local Irish groups.
Now, fifty years to the day, a Concelebrated Mass was said at the cathedral, in remembrance of twenty-seven Irish men and women, drafted on their arrival in the U.S., who lost their lives in the conflict.
Chief celebrant was Fr. Patrick Doody of the Holy Ghost Fathers, assisted by Fr. Brian Grogan, the newly appointed Chaplain of the Fire Department, in replacement of the late Fr. Mychal Judge who was killed the morning of September 11, on duty at the World Trade Centre. A good attendance at the Mass despite the inconvenience of street closings and tight security around the cathedral and adjoining streets.
The weekend Mass was organised by the Carpenters Local 608 with the aid of business agent, Gerry Philbin. It was a tribute to the fallen Irish and the latest chapter in a campaign to secure posthumous U.S. citizenship for them. A Bill currently between the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate would do just that, not just for the Irish but the Korean War dead of all nationalities who served in the United States Forces in that conflict. Mayo Korean War veterans in attendance including Pat Boyle of Balla, Mike Moffatt of Lahardane; John Jennings of Swinford, Mike Joyce from Tuam, P.J. Keavney of Cummer, Tuam. Also in attendance were Sean Finn, Ballyhaunis, Joe Flannery, Castlebar and Jim Higgins of Kiltimagh.
The roll-call for all of the military and religious personnel was read by Dublin native and veteran Jim O'Mahoney.
George Fitzmaurice was born in 1877 in the family home, Bedford House, just outside Listowel on the Ballylongford road. With his father's death in 1891, the family was forced to move to a farmhouse in Kilcara, outside the village of Duagh. The circumstances surrounding the family meant none of its members was ever quite considered of the landed class, and neither did they fit in as locals.
Local stories tell of ‘Master George' being seen composing his plays in the woods, in the parlour of his home, as well as in a large 15 acre top field on their farm. George was inspired by the colourful characters he met, as well as the people's stumbling attempts, at the end of the 19th Century, to speak English instead of Irish.
He moved to Dublin where he was employed by the Civil Service. His earliest writings were published in Dublin weeklies between 1900 and 1907.
He first major success came in 1907 with an Abbey production of his comedy The Country Dressmaker. One of Fitzmaurice's most notorious characters, Luke Quilter, the man from the mountains, appears in this play that proved hugely popular with audiences, much to the surprise of one W.B. Yeats.
His second play, a dramatic fantasy entitled The Pie Dish, was totally rejected by critics and considered blasphemous. It lead to the rejection of what is now understood as one of his best plays, another dramatic fantasy, The Dandy Dolls. Ironically, the Abbey Theatre produced this play in 1969, six years after his death.
Other well-known plays by Fitzmaurice include The magic glasses, The Moonlighter, The Enchanted Land and One Evening Gleam. A selection of short stories The Crows of Mephistopheles was published in 1970 by the Dolmen Press.
George fought in World War One. He spent his later years following monotonous routines in Dublin, with a fear of traveling and people. An unsent letter in his belongings, found after his death, revealed that he had suffered from neurasthenia, which explains his shyness.
He died alone, at 3 Harcourt Street, Dublin, in 1963, at the age of 86.

subject) Feedback Newtownsandes ON-LINE
(recipient) comments) I am a descendant of John Dillon and Mary Greany of Moyvane/Murhur or Newtonsandes. My Great Great Grandfather was Daniel Dillon born in approximately 1835 to John Dillon and Mary Greany. Daniel Dillon emigrated to Illinois, USA and married Ellen Cain. Their daughter Ellen Dillon married Thomas O'Sullivan in Illinois, USA (he was born in Ballylongford, County Kerry, Ireland, in 1835). Their daughter, Eileen Sullivan, was born in Illinois and married Louis Regnier. My mother was their daughter, Alice Regnier.
(NAME) Susan Williams
I really do not know much about my Kennelly's. My g. g. grandfather John W. Kennelly was b. 2 Aug 1835 in Ireland. His death certificate says his father was Martin Kennelly b. Ireland and his mother was Mary Windle also b. in Ireland. He m. Johanna Conners before 1857 in Ireland. Could be Connors. Johanna was b. in Ireland abt 1839. Her death certificate says her father was John Conners and her mother was Ellen, both b. Ireland. They had two children b. in Ireland that survived the journey to the US. Micheal b. Sept. 1857 and Mary b. 1860. Family stories say two children died on the trip over. Daughter Ellen b. in 1864 and I'm not sure which country she was b. in.
They supposedly came to this country abt 1862-64 but I can find no record of them until the early 1870's in Rochester NY. Supposedly John was naturalized but there were no naturalization records for him in Rochester.
Supposedly my g grandmother Frances Bridgete was b. 1868 in Erie Pa. where I live but I can find no record of the family here either.
Frances m. Thomas Geraghty in Rochester. Supposedly one family was from Limerick, and the other from Tipperary but no one knows for sure.
If you have any knowledege of this family I would be grateful for any information you are willing to share!
My son Tom Roche and family leave in a couple of weeks for Ireland to seek
roots. His grandmother, Margaret Agnes Kelly Roche, was born in Listowel in
1879, to Tom Kelly and Mary (?) Kennelly. Her siblings included Mary Kelly
Behan, Nora Kelly Hannon, Catherine Kelly Doyle (who remained in Listowel)
Paddy Kelly,(who inherited the Kelly farm) and several others.
Tom and family will be visiting offspring of the Kellys and the Doyles. It is
difficult to follow your family tree, without some dates or other clues.
Please let me know if you can find a Mary Kennelly among the siblings of
Pat or Jerry Kennelly.
Mary Anna Roche
I have only just started tracing my family tree so I don't have a great deal
of information as yet but here is what I have found out so far.
Sarah Maloney sailed from County Clare in 1883 at the age of 20 on the
sailing ship 'Assaye' with her mother Sarah aged 55 and brother Michael aged
25. In 1881 an Ellen Maloney aged 21 sailed for Australia on the
'Blairgowie' also in 1881 another Ellen Maloney aged 25 sailed for Australia
on the 'Glamis'. Also on board was James Maloney aged 19 and Thomas Maloney
aged 18. Sarah married Alfred Henry Peel on the 22.9.1886 at St. Mary's
Cathedral Sydney. A Michael and Ellen Maloney signed the marriage
certificate as witnesses. Sarah and Alfred had 7 children (5 boys & 2 girls)
and my father also Alfred was born on the 6.6.1889. Sarah died on the
11.8.1937 aged 74 and Alfred died in September 1954 aged 89. They are buried
together in the catholic cemetery Botany Sydney in row 9 grave no. 481.
Michael Maloney married a Johanna McNamara and had 6 children all died
young, the last a daughter Johanna who was the last survivor of the family,
died on 9.5.1924. Michael & children died from Myelocythaemia. She is buried
in the Curch of England cemetery Woronora N.S.W. I have nothing at all
regarding Sarah's father, he must have died in Ireland as he is not on any
ships passenger lists. Also nothing about Sarah's grandparents. Do you have
any information that would help me?
Regards Allan Peel
Thanks for your note.
The point of my letter of 22/2/2001 was as follows:-
1. To ascertain whether you had any information to link my greatgrandfather with Bridget Mulvihill shown on the Kennelly families list.The date of c1840 would seem to be about right as grandfather John was born about 1847 in Newtownsandes. We had already established that the only other John to have married a Bridget ie Bridget Kirby was not related because they did not have a son John,according to the information supplied by the P.P. at Moyvane in 1990.
2. To see what relevance the name Folan/Forin/Foran had to our family. And whether Bridget Morrissey's parents Thomas Kennelly and Hannah Forin could be connected to grandfather from the records obtainable in Newtownsandes.
My full name is Christopher Charles Kennelly,the name Christopher comes from my maternal grandfather Christopher L'Estrange,born in Mulligar Westmeath. Charles comes from my uncle Charles Henry Kennelly killed in France in 1918.
I don't know if Jerry snr.worked in Cork. I know he came to Skibbereen around 1907/8. The only person I know of Sr. Baptist who resides in Cork. If you come this way again be sure to let yourself known to me.
Tom Kennelly of Cobourg was my ancestor. I'm curious for details on this woman.
My Kennelly's were from Limerick. Wonder if we're related.
I am still trying to figure out at what point the Hanrahan's
became cousins to my Flahavan's.
You asked about the Lawlor's---I know very little about how they are
connected to my Flahavan/Flavin family. In Delaware Ohio in the middle
1850's they were attending baptisims, marriages and sponsers to various
Flavin family. Fanny Lawlor apparently was married to a John O'Naile
(O'Neil) A Mary Lawlor was married to John Moran, whose daughter Johanna
Moran married Patrick Flahavan/Flavin in Delaware Ohio in 1858. All born
Seems William Hanrahan of Newtownsandes had a son John. He in turn had
another son John Patrick. John Patrick Hanrahan was listed as cousin to my
great grand uncle Timothy Flavin/Flahavan. I can only assume that somewhere,
there was a Flahavan/Flavin and Hanrahan marriage. What a confusing mess I
If you hear of any Hanrahan Flavin connections, please let me know.
what I am looking for is: John and Mary
nee Collins had Denis Flahavan born Feb 11, 1821. Other probable children of
John and Mary are: John, James, Johanna, Bridget, Patrick, Mary. All born
1820 to 1840.
Denis Flahavan/Flavin married Catherine Costelloe. That would have been
sometime around 1850 to 1853. Now there is the possibility a first marriage
was to Mary Mahoney in 1846. I would like to see if buried there is one Mary
Mahoney/Maloney Flahavan/Flavin who would have died between 1846 and 1852.
Children born to Denis Flahavan in Ireland, Kerry would be John born about
1852 or 53 and Michael born 1852 to 1853. Maybe others prior to these two, I
don't know. The rest of the children (12 more) were born in Ohio , So I
already know about them
I have a couple of copies of letters that were written from another Flavin
researcher's great great grandmother back in 1853. She (Anne Scanlon) was
writting to her daughter Ellen Scanlon Shanahan, who was in America , Ohio.
The area she wrote from was Ahanagran. Anyway, she mentions her son in laws,
Patrick Flavin/Flahavan and James Flahavan. Also interesting is the mention
of a Margaret Kennelly, Richard Scanlon's wife. Darby Enright is also
mentioned. As is John Mahoney, who took Anne Scanlon's grandson, Robert
Flahavan/Flavin to America, and both of them disappeared, this being in 1854.
These folks are somehow intertwined with my Flavin family, we believe. The
researcher and I have yet to figure out the relationship. I tell you about
this, because I thought it interesting that the Kennelly name was mentioned.
No mention of my Costelloe or Hanrahan family though.
Hello Again Jer,
I ask because on my
Hanrahan (John Hanrahan, son of William Hanrahan) who died in Ohio in 1875,
it says born in "Newtownsandes, County Kerry".
Cork Family; My great uncles Jeremiah and John were the first and third bishops of
Harrisburg, PA. Their father was the founder of a Catholic college in (I
believe) Philadephia where the family lived until Jeremiah's appointment as
bishop of the "new diocese", There is info on the Web about the bishops. I
have photos of them and some belongings. The Shanahan family of my
ancestors came to the US.from Cork in about 1825, according to me records.
The ancestor from Ireland was named Sylvester Shanahan married to an Ann
Hand. Their child, John married a Margaret Donavan. The latter were
parents of the two bishops.
I am searching for the ancestry/family of Timothy Kennelly; born in 1797 possibly in Ballylongford, Kerry Co., Ireland; married Catherine O'Connor abt 1830+; removed to Bulloch County, GA USA abt 1835 until 1857 and migrated to Winnesheik CO, IA where he died. I would be happy to share any info with you on these lines. Thanks, Judy.

Descendants of John Daly
4. Margaret2 Daly (John1) was born 31 Aug 1895 in Tarbert, County Kerry, Ireland60, and died 05 Jul 1964 in Brisbane, QLD, Australia61. She married Thomas Martin O'Dea I62 18 Apr 1917 in Coorparoo, Brisbane, QLD, Australia63, son of Patrick O'Dea and Bridget Shannon. He was born 25 Sep 1888 in Kilrush, County Clare, Ireland64, and died 16 Aug 1971 in Brisbane, QLD, Australia65.
Notes for Margaret Daly:
Baptised at St. Mary's church, Tarbert by Rev. D. Foley. (Source: Unknown)
Madge Daly appears in 2 UK outwards passenger lists:
1.WAIPARA leaving London on 9 May 1916 for Brisbane.
2.OMRAH leaving London on 30 June 1916 for Brisbane.
The entry in the first list has been crossed out. This suggests that she was booked on the WAIPARA leaving on 9 May 1916 but did not join that ship and joined the OMRAH leaving on 30 June 1916 instead.
(Source: Passenger lists leaving UK 1890-1960 - findmypast.com.)
Madge worked as a housekeeper at St. James's Church, Coorparoo shortly after she arrived in Australia. Her 6 brothers went to the United States.
Madge had an operation to remove a tumour from her side (7.5 pounds). Dad lay beside her during the operation. The tumour affected one of her kidneys so the kidney was removed and she lived for 16 years with one kidney. When she was dying she was burning up. (Source: Delia Beausang (nee O'Dea) 04/2003.)
May Shewring (nee Madigan) came to Australia on the same boat as Madge. (Source: Delia Beausang (nee O'Dea) 04/2003.)
Madge reared 8 orphans:
She also helped May Shewring and minded her 3 children while May worked, after May's husband died when oldest child, Ann, was about 4 years. The other 2 children were: Frank and Mick. (Source: Delia Beausang (nee O'Dea) 04/2003.)
Madge was the oldest girl when her mother died. She left school at 13 to look after the family. Her living sisters were Mollie and Josie. Some of her brothers went into an orphanage. She used to help lay out deceased people in Ireland.
Of her brothers, Morgan married twice but had no children; Michael never married - he was a tailor.
Madge and May Shewring were cousins.

KENNELLY , Jeremiah (Diarmuid) (late of Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow) July 25, 2010, at Cleveland Road, Ealing, London, beloved husband of Rosemary and much loved father of Diarmuid and the late Timothy. Funeral Mass at Ealing Abbey, 1.30 o'c. Friday (July 30), afterwards at Greenford Cemetery.
Hundreds flock to Timothy Kennelly's funeral at Ealing Abbey
Posted by Paloma Kubiak Feb. 2010
Hundreds of mourners came to pay their last respects to a brave and talented teenager who lost his life trying to save his friend.
Ealing Abbey was filled with friends and family of Timothy Kennelly who drowned off the North-East coast of Brazil after trying to help his 'After Death' band mate who was struggling in the rough waters.
The 18-year-old's funeral which took place on Friday February 12th 2010 saw hymns sung by pupils of Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School in Shepherd's Bush, where Timothy attended, friends from West Ealing where he grew up, members of St Benedict's Ealing Abbey where he was an alter boy and family from Ireland who made the trip to say their goodbyes.
Timothy's twin brother, Diarmuid read out a eulogy, smiling as he remembered his brother but holding back the tears as he recalled the final moments of his life.
Diarmuid said: "After many disappointments, finally Timothy and I were born, Timothy three minutes after me; it was a very special day when we arrived.
"On his first day at St Gregory's, Timothy cried and when we went to Cardinal Vaughan, our dreams came true as it is here that he started to become interested in music and taught himself how to play before he joined 'After Death'.
"He always had a grin on his face and a natural ability to lift spirits in any company.
"I was lucky enough to watch him grow into a mature young man.
"He had love for everyone and was closely involved in the church as an alter boy and reader.
"He was never afraid to take on a challenge or other people; he had a fantastic sense of humour shown through his outrageous fancy dress wear.
"Timothy decided to take a gap year and he worked at Kantar Operations where we trained together and no matter what he did, he loved it.
"He originally auditioned as a singer for 'After Death' but was given position of bass guitarist and backing vocalist.
"It was a very happy time, he went to rehearsals and had studio time to get an LP done.
"When the band went on tour it was the opportunity of a life-time and he did all the over-time to save money.
"This is 18-years of events; they were very happy years.
"The support our family have received has been phenomenal and we could never have done it without your support."
Reverend Dom Peter Burns who was the presiding celebrant, said: "It is not long ago that Timothy was involved in the 7pm mass and we offer this mass for him today.
"He was off on his travels and we couldn't know that he was making his journey back to God.
"Timothy had his first Communion and Confirmation here and made a great group of friends who stuck together.
"His family are overwhelmed and wonderfully supported by all the love and care received over the last few weeks.
"We remember all those qualities that made him, such as his love of heavy metal, knowledge and sense of fun, pride in his origins and his extraordinary untidiness; that was what made him Timothy.
"The real Timothy was when he saw Leon in distress out in the sea knowing he wasn't a good swimmer but saw his friend was in trouble."
Timothy Jeremiah Kennelly died on Thursday January 21, along with his band mate Leon Villalba of Islington.
21st January 2010
Remembering Timothy Kennelly, aged 18, who died on 21 January, 2010.
Bassist Mr Kennelly and bandmate Leon Villalba, aged 21 - both musicians from metal band After Death - died while swimming off Atalaia, Brazil.
The five members of London-based band were on tour in Brazil playing local venues for just over a week, and were the support act for the band Master.
Drummer, Barry Mr O'Connor, who went to school with Leon and had known him for 12 years, said he had been the "driving force" behind the band.
"He was the nicest guy, so organised and he really pushed the band to get to this sort of position," he said.
He said Mr Kennelly, from Ealing in west London, joined the band six months ago but it felt like he had known him for years.
"Tim straight away made a massive impression... he was full of information, loved a laugh and was on cloud nine. He was so much more mature than 18, a great guy all round."

In Reply to: Re: William Stack b.1863, Noyvane, Co. Kerry by Gerald Roux of 831
"Moyvane in Kerry was called Newtown Sands prior to 1922.My grandmother Mary Mulvihill,was born in Moyvane in 1863, married Patrick Stack who was born in Co. Wexford but raised in Kerry in Chicago in 1882. Any connection?"
Jim is also talking about a Mulvihill/Dineen marriage I see all over the Trib papers:
"The Mrs. Stack you refer to in your note is my grandmother, and the stepsisters you name are her halfsisters. Her parents were Cornelius Mulvihill and Bridgid Dineen,whom he married after Nora Cunningham died. There were three children with Nora and ten with Bridgid all born on a farm just outside Moyvane, Co.Kerry. Cornelius' greatgrandson is still farming it, only he is now the owner not a tenant farmer as was my great grandfather. I have information on the Chicago relatives as well as the Irish cousins. If you are interested, my e-mail address is JamesColgan@aol.com. Please contact me."
In response to this posting:
Brian Stack Murder
But Brian never got the chance to test his theory, or reveal what he knew, because someone singled him out and shot him in the back of the neck outside the National Boxing Stadium in Dublin on March 25, 1983. What is particularly heartbreaking about the murder of this brave servant of the State is that he did not die immediately, but lived for another 554 days, brain damaged, paralysed, in need of 24-hour care, before he died from pneumonia on September 29, 1984.
For more than 20 years, not one minister for justice called to visit Brian Stack's widow Sheila, or her three sons, Austin, Kieran and Oliver. Not one senior garda contacted them to discuss the murder file, which until recently was effectively left to gather dust. But now, largely thanks to the recent agitation by the Stack family, the long-term paralysis of the State in re- investigating Brian Stack's murder seems to have lifted.
Some of the most experienced gardai in the country have recently been examining the case, meeting with the Stack family and showing real desire to bring the killers to justice. The Stack family were invited to meet with previous justice minister Brian Lenihan, and they now want to sit down with the current minister Dermot Ahern.
There's a momentum to the case, which is making the guilty feel very uncomfortable, and at the very least isn't that a good thing? The Sunday Independent is right to shine a light on the unsolved murder of Brian Stack. I believe Irish journalists can do a lot to keep up the pressure, and help solve the murder of a man gunned down while trying to make Ireland a safer place in which to live.
The fee for this article will be given to the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dun Laoghaire, where Brian Stack received great care after being shot by cowards who hopefully are not sleeping too soundly these days.

STACK, STAK, STAKE * *THE EARLY STACK FAMILIES IN COUNTY KERRY viz.
In 1286 the Stack family Anglo-Normans originally came from England. In the first part of the fourteenth century and by the 16th century they were completely Irish, being among the foremost Kerry adversaries to English. They were from the FitzGeralds, allies of the Fitzmaurices, lords and knights of Kerry. The Stacks of Crotta settled in Kilflynn in 1320 and expanded out of there building a resident at Crotta. In fact the town of Kilflynn was known as Stackstown. Their association with the area was further perpetuated by the Stack Mountains, which are situated between Tralee and Abbeyfeal. This entire area around Crotta is known as Pubble (Probal) Stack or StackÂ’s country. Their association with Clanmaurice is perpetuated in the Stack Mountains between Tralee and Abbeyfeale and a district in the vicinity was long known as Pobble Stack or Stack's Country.
