My sisters and I will be visiting Emly in September and hope to learn more about the lives of our great=great grandparents who married at Emly parish January 29, 1846. Their names were Patrick Russell and Margaret O'Donnell, and Ballinacrae was noted as the residence place in the online record. Two daughters were born in Ireland before they sailed for America in 1849. Perhaps other children were born there? We look forward to what we may learn.

Looking to fill some gaps in my family tree. My great-grandfather was Edmond Heffernan, born in Emly on 12th December 1901 and married Sarah O'Dwyer born 18th October 1902, from Emly on 11th Aug 1923. Would also love to see any old photographs, My father, son of Catherine Heffernan (daughter of Edmond) has never seen a photo of his grandmother Sarah O'Dwyer!

In memory of John Joseph Noonan. This has been such a special year, a time of discovery and coming together. John would have turned 75 tomorrow, Christmas time is a truly spiritual time of year to be born. He was a pupil at the local school, and was a part of the community growing up. Whilst he may have lived elsewhere too, Emly was where he called his home. The resting place of this dear man is at St Ailbe's Church. Although time may have passed, John is still very hugely missed, adored and loved. Angels are caring for you now, God bless. xxx

Hello - I am trying to trace the baptism record and any other information available about my father in law, Michael John Mullane, born on 14 July 1930. Apparently his birth was unregistered. He came from somewhere called Boracarron in Emly. He was one of 6 children Joan, Kitty, Nora, John and Liam. Liam died. John moved to Australia. His mother's name was Nora. Any information would be very much appreciated, I am trying to trace the family history for the benefit of my sons who share his surname (obviously!). Good wishes to all.

I love watching mass and prayer services at Emly Parish online. This is particularly important since we all around the world are shut-in right now. <3

Hello All in the parish of Emly. Thank you for the opportunity to connect. I have many ancestors from your little village and believe I will be bringing a little of them home when I visit in August 2020. The names are; Heffernan, Blake, Barry, Carrolls, Byrnes, Lonergans and the Merrigans & Prendergasts of Ballinleenty. It appears that many from this area followed each other to North East Victoria Aust and continued to intermarry.I look forward to "coming home". Patrice Morrow

Hello. Im looking for information on my great great Grandfather Patrick Glasheen. Patrick was born in Emly, Co Tipperary, Ireland on 15 December 18__. He was baptized in Emly on 27 Jun 1840. Baptismal sponsors were : John Treacy & Catherine Quinn. I believe but am not certain his parents were Richard Glasheen (1805-1865) and Honora Higgins (1805-). Possible siblings are James, Mary, Catherine, Johanna, Margaret and Bridget. Patrick immigrated to New York in 1862. In 1865 he married Bridget Quillinan from Limerick who had also immigrated to Troy, NY were her parents and siblings. Im hoping this info might sound familiar to someone. I know all about the Glasheens here in the United States. I would like to find out about his family in Ireland. If you think you might be related to Patrick or have any information. Please contact me. My email is burghvets@gmail.com . Thank you very much PJ Higgitt Troy, NY

Hi everyone, I've been in Ireland two weeks and sadly, when I passed through Tipperary, I missed Emly, the homeland of my great grandfather Martin Moroney who left for Australia on the Conway in 1852.Don't know what I was thinking. I'm not entirely sure but I think Martin’s parents were Matthew or Michael Moroney and Johanna Moroney (nee Hoolihan). He was b.1828 and d in Australia in 1900 aged 72. Anyway if anyone knows anything of his family I'd love to hear from you. I leave Ireland next Wednesday but my ph no will be (44)7937024429 till Sept 20. Paul Byrne-Moroney

Father Rochford was wonderful in assisting us in finding our O'Brien/Harty family in Emly. He directed us to visit John and Nora O'Brien of Bartoose. John and Patrick shared a gggrandfather, Owen O'Brien. John had no idea that his great uncle had migrated to Australia. We spent a wonderful two days with John and Nora, sharing stories and photos. How lucky were we!!

I just started to research my family tree. My research brought me to the Emly parish registry. The entry is from 1835 and is for the baptism of my great grandfather Denis Curtin son of Timothy and Margaret Curtin. My grandfather immigrated to America in 1910 and not much was known about his life in Ireland. I want to thank the Parish for helping me and I'm sure many others connect with a part of their heritage. Cheers and sincerely Thank you. Joseph Samuels

I am a descendant of a Hanley/Hanly family from. Cashel and Emly Parish. My ggggrandfather was Richard Hanley and he came to Ontario Canada with a group of brothers and sisters or cousins in the years 1840-1845. They include Johanna Hanley, Matthew Hanley and wife Ann Lahey and their children Cornelius, Ellen and Mary; Patrick Hanley, Michael Hanly, Bridget Hanley and John Hanley.They all settled together as farmers. Matthew and Ann's three children were baptized at Emly and Matthew and Ann were married at Emly. Michael was married at Emly and baptized his eldest son Dennis there. I believe that we are related to the Cornelius Hanley family in Emly graveyard.
