Hello    12th Sept 2007

Your website v good.

Do any of you know anything about my grandmother's brother Matty Markham, from Markhams at Ennistymon? He was a rebel and was imprisoned by the British.i'd v much like to know more about him.

God bless.Fiona Cullen-Skowronski    fionamary.cullen@tiscali.co.uk

PS: My grandmother was Peggy Markham, born around the end of the nineteenth century.

 

Thank you for keeping us up to date on the Power Family activities back home in Clare. It makes Gerry feel like he is back home with his clan - we really appreciate your website - great job!

Hi Paul,

 Just wanted to drop you a line, to say that the website is excellent. I really love reading all the local news and seeing the pictures of the social nights out.It makes the distance between here and home alot less when I'm reading all the different stories.Keep up the good work and your effort is appreciated! Sinead,John and Aine Brady in Canada. 18/4/2007

Dear Paul, As I gazed in wonderment at your valuable research . and read with distress at the treatment metered out to thousands of innocent people a sense of Injustice consumed me and I was inspired to find out more out my husbands ancestors. Being just a beginner I wondered if you would be kind enough to post a message regarding Andrew Micheal Markham born Kirlrush< about l810.  We are looking for his ancestors and his descendants.  We know that two of his children Patrick born l829 married Maria Hagney in 1856 in Australia. And Martin Micheal (the line I am interested in) married first to Bridget in l856 and then Elizabeth Anne in1866.  Martin came to Australia in l851 on the Emperor”  Patrick came to Australia 6 months later on “ St. Vincent”Accompanying them were Bridget and Mary and we think they may be the sisters.  There is no record of Andrews wife but her name may be Bridget.  Any information at all would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you and good luck to all your family. Your ancestors you have recorded would be proud of you – a true Irish son.  Carolyn Markham  carolyn@waterking.com.au     18/4/2007

I would be interested in hearing from anybody who is related to the Halloran family from Moyfadda. In 1901 the family consisted of Bridget the mother and three children Michael, Bridget and Mary. This is for genealogical purposes.

 Thank You

Hello Paul,
Greetings from Murroe, Co. Limerick (Home of the Glenstal Abbey Monks.). Just got Broadband into our house here and Collette and Noel have told me so much about your site, I decided tonight to check it out for myself. I note that my uncle Br. Pat Madigan (now in Africa and hopefully coming home for good towards end of 2007 and also my good brother Derek) have already signed your guest book.. Paul well done on your work with this site and all the best for the future..
Pat Madigan Jnr. (Murroe, Co. Limerick) 2nd February 2007.

       

  Dear Mr. Markham,
      Thank you for all your dedication and efforts on your website. You'll
      never know how much it means to people who have left the area, recently and generations ago. 
 I fall into the latter category. My great-grandmother was Margaret Foley  of Erribul, whose parents were Henry and Susan/Joanna Cuggeran (she of Cloonsnaughta). Margaret emigrated in 1882, yet I have located only one  Foley descended from the same line still living in Clare, Tim Foley of Clonola, Kildysart. The O'Neills, Sean and Maeve, of Erribul are connected to the same Foleys, and I've met them and Mrs. O'Neill. I wonder if any other Foleys in and about the area might be descended from  a connected family? Henry had a brother Patrick who married another Cuggeran sister (the Clonola Foleys are his line), and likely another brother Denis who married Ellen Kinnane, who had two sons at least, George and Martin. I noticed the photo of Maeve and Catherine Foley recently on  your Breaking News page, which brought this question to my mind...
      Thanks very much,

   HI UNCLE PAUL :D! very nice site. hope everythings going well over there!   - have fun!   Sinead Markham. Brisbane, Australia.20/11/2006


      Mr. Markham,
      
         Upon doing a internet search of my grandfather, Michael Falahee, I came  across your article. I must commend you on both the breadth of your piece and the overall effort made to reveal information that not only I but  several members of my family found intriguing.  You stated that the gun used by my grandfather during the War of Independence was recovered. Do you have any idea of its whereabouts today.  Also, would you happen to know where I could find a recorded copy of the song "The Battle of Tullycrine?" Any information you could give me would be immensely appreciated. Thank you for your time. 
      Sincerely,
        Kevin Michael Falahee 8th Nov 2006        U.S.A

   Dear Mr Markham,
      
      I have been on your website which I think is brilliant. 
      
      I am looking for information regarding my great grandparents Patrick &
      Catherine Hanrahan nee Chambers who married in 1876 in the Chapel of  Cooraclare.  They had six children, one of whom was my grandmother.
       Also, I am looking for a Patrick Neylon who worked in Scotland as a
      Steelworker the early 1900's.
        I am struggling with Patrick Hanrahan's parents. No mother's name only fathers's - Connor.  I cannot go back further without this information.
        Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Best Wishes,
      Anne Darroch 3/10/2006


      I loved all the wonderful stories and information on the website. 
      Congratulations on a facinating look back at history.
      
      I wondered if anybody could give me any information about the place name
      "Caradotia" - I think it might have been on the Vandeleur Estate.
      
      Thank you.

      Dear Mr. Markham,   22 July 2006
          I stumbled across this website during a search for my County Clare
      Markham ancestors. Wonderful site and fantastic photos!
         I also read your family history page but, unfortunately, it did not go
      back far enough for me to ascertain whether or not my Markham's are also  yours. Perhaps you may be able to help?
          My search begins with James Markham, born 1808 and died 15 Jan. 1907. He was married to Catherine O'Loughlin, born 1844 and died 14 Jan 1925 They lived in Ennistymon, Co. Clare. Their house, eventually taken over and rebuilt by their son, Patrick, still stands in Newtown, Ennistymon.
      Their children were:
      John - born July 1858
      James - born January 1861
      Michael - born July 1863
      Margaret - born April 1866
      Susan - born August 1867 (?)
      Patrick - born June 1870
      Mary Anne - born February 1873
      Catherine - born July 1875
      Catherine Frances - born 05 August 1886 (This was my grandmother)
         
          If you have any information to share with me, I would greatly
      appreciate it.

      Hi Paul,
                  Have you ever wondered what it is like visiting Ireland,
      either for the first time, or returning to the homeland when possible? 
      Hope you enjoy the following, It's probably too long to print.
      
                       We fell in love with Ireland.
      
      The morning sun was rising. The earth was dark and cold.
      Across the broad horizon the wonders soon unfold.
      Dublin on the Liffey rising towards the sky.
      We fell in love with Ireland, as the morning sun went by.
      
      The winding roads through Wicklow can take you anywhere,
      Killarney lakes so pretty, or the the Curragh in Kildare.
      Cruising down the Shannon, Oh! Limerick what a view.
      Tonight we sleep in Beds Of Silk, Lab'sheeda we love you.
      
      Oh, Emerald Isle of beauty, the rarest I have seen.
      On the roads 'round Derryguiha, I strolled with my colleen.
      Dan Furey Fest was crowded, We danced the Cashel set.
      We came to visit Ireland, just cannot leave it yet.
      
      There are football games in Kerry, hurling games in Clare.
      Galway, Mayo, Sligo, there's music everywhere.
      There's soccer up in Donegal, there's fishing in Loughrea.
      If you take your cares to Ireland, they'll just wash'em out to sea.
      
      Oh, Waterford so famous, your crystal is so clear.
      In County Cork, the Blarney Stone, we kissed it without fear.
      Tonight we dine at Templebar, and have a pint or two.
      It's time to visit Ireland if you're feeling kind of blue
      
      The golden sun is setting, the daily chores are done.
      I hear the sounds of music, the night has just begun.
      We still remember Dublin, rising towards the sky.
      We fell in love with Ireland,  and it's hard to say goodbye.
      
      We fell in love with Ireland and It's hard to say goodbye.

      My mother, NORA McINERNEY went to Coolmeen School. She was born in 1920 and is still alive, living in Liverpool.
     Are their any records of her at school?
      Her parents were Michael and Susan (nee KELLY). If anyone has any
      information on them, I'd be grateful.

 Hi
      I have just seen your site and would like to say how much I enjoyed it.
      I mixture of past and current events , almost like living history.
      I am a Clancy with roots in Kilrush so I was particularly interested in
      your item on Peadar Clancy, I do not know if he was a relation.
      I live in France and am married to a French lady, however we are both very interested in the Irish side of the family.   My great grand father was
      James Clancy carpenter, who lived in Kilrush in the middle of the
      nineteenth century. My grand father was also a James Clancy, born in 1875  he was also a carpenter and the undertaker in Kilrush, his first son (my  uncle) was also a James clancy,  the town clerk. My father was Patrick James Clancy, a carpenter, he left for England in the thirties.
      I am sorry that my direct links with Ireland broke with the death of my
      father in 1981, 
 I am glad to see that your family is big and strong and continuing to grow best regards    Malcolm Patrick Clancy 30th April 2006


      I am trying to find a website in Labasheeda if possible.  My ancestors
      (and a few living relatives are from there -  I am doing a
      family tree and am interested in Bermingham Murphy and
      Peter Connell's families, I was in Ireland in 1967 and visited a cemetary that had their grave stones but was hoping to find census information if possible. My grandmother and her three sisters came to the US in the late 1800's and  their cousin Katie Murphy Hospal also around that time period.
       Do you know of anyone I can contact?
       Thank you,Peggy Liddy 23rd April 2006

 
      Please extend our very best to your mother and father on their diamond   jubilee it is wonderful to see them hail and hearty and we wish them many  more happy healthy years together. Your web site is brilliant i think my mother is in that photo you have on coomeen school (Teresa Clancy)

      Hi,
      
      I found your web site and saw a family research question and I was hoping you could post mine I am doing some family research on the Malone family from Shanneka More and I am hoping something might ring a bell to your readers. I took an add out in the Clare Champion several years ago and received back two responses. One was from a Michael McMahon of Cork who told me his mother Ann Malone was part of the family I was looking for. Michael's brother
      Sean died a few years ago in Cahercon, I visited the area that summer, but  he was already gone. Another woman responded but unfortunetly I lost her name and number. Here is the information, my great grandmother Mary Malone was born in 1854 to Patrick Malone and Susan Houlihan. She was baptised in St. Michaels in   Kilyderst. She came to America with her brother's Michael, Patrick and  Thomas. Her brother John stayed in Clare and married Sarah Hehir, Sarah's  father was named Martin. At least five of their children came to New  Jersey. I know a son Michael stayed in Ireland. The other children Mary,  Patrick and Susan, I don't know what happened to them.  My great grandmother's father Patrick had a brother named Thomas. This Thomas had a son also named John who  married a Mary Grady in 1877 in Kilmurry-McMahon. Her father was named Patrick. This couple had about ten children, three of which came to New Jersey the remaining one's were name Patrick, Michael, Alice, Susan and Ann. 
        When I was in Clare I was told the two Michaels were called Sarge Malone and Tailor  Malone. Also one of them was a foster father to John Haugh the  famous wood carver. I would be greatful if this sounds familar to anyone and they would
e-mail.

      Hi Paul, hope all and everybody is well. Please tell Jack and Mary and
      everyone I was asking for them. Haven’t been down for a few years –
      Michael and Finn are always too busy hurling to go anywhere else! Your  website is brilliant, great to find out what everyone is up to, keep up
      the good work. Can I ask a favour? I’ve been trying to get my hands on the 2005 edition of ‘The Other Clare’ because it has an article on excavations related to  my research (Irish Iron Age burials): ‘Archaeology on the route of the Ennis Bypass’ [this might have been written by Graham Hull]. UCD library don’t have a copy yet, would you happen to have one that you might  photocopy those pages for me from? No worries if you don’t, i’m sure one will turn up eventually.
      I have a few sites in and around Clare I must visit sometime during the
      next year, maybe we could have a pint? All the best, Tiernan.

      -- G'day Paul,
      Greetings from Australia! My name is Niamh McDonagh. My mum comes from
      near the village of Knock. My great grandfather, James King, owned
      Oaklands. I would like to know if you have any history on THE BENNETTS who
      were the former owners? Mum loves reading about the local news and gossip!
      Thanks for a job well done, 10/8/05
      Niamh.


      Hi Paul,      
'Took some time out this morning to look at your website...it's a credit
      to you & a tribute to the Markham family the great work you are doing.  It  is a wonderful resource for West Clare people now residing far from home  who like to keep in touch with local happenings.
      I was in South Africa in April 2005 & saw a number of men's clothing
      outlets bearing the name 'Markham', any connection to the Derryguiha
      Markhams?
      I hear you have yet another local history book published...
      Keep up the good work

      Paul Markham,
       Congratulations! I just received your book from Mary (Val) McMahon,
      Clondrina. It's a lovely book so well turned out even to a beautiful back cover picture I haven't been able to contact you since our meeting.
       It's really great to have local history coming into its own in this way,
      neglected so long for what ever reasons.
                       Yours sincerely,
                            Mick Larkin, Mullinahone, Co. Tipp. June 05.

 
 
 
 
           
 
      Paul,
      Just finished your book on the life and times of T.J. Ryan. I really
      enjoyed it. The local place and family names made each page come to life,rolling back the years as a little piece of history was recorded for future  generations. In this era of materialism we in Coolmeen are lucky to have some one who still finds the time to research and record the history of  our area. Looking forward to your next book!!!!!!!!! Desmond Murphy.

  I have been to Labasheeda a couple of times and have fallen in love with
the  place. I have found a cottage on the outskirts of the town that used to be
      a shop and a dance! many years ago. I would to find out who owns it as I
      think it deserves to be loved. I know there most be a cottage out there for
      me within a reasonable prise range. I also noticed that there was no shop in
      Labasheeda, is this the case. I would be grateful if you could help me in
      this quest. I am currently living in Shannon.

      Hi Paul,
      I hope you had a happy and safe xmas and new year.
      Someone in the family has said that our original Mathew Cunningham married a Mary McMahon of Kilmurry-Mcmahon. I am coming up against brick walls with the Cunningham side, so i thought i'd try and investigate the mcmahons.Apparently Marys mother gave a considerable amount of money for her  grandsonThomas to leave ireland for America but instead he came to Australia.. I know i have asked a lot of questions of you but Is there a mcmahon family  still living in Kilmurry-Mcmahon that has been there forever? Can you  please put me in contact with them so i can investigate this. Thank you
