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

Liz Troyer Liz Troyer from Regina, Sask., Canada wrote on February 9, 2017 at 3:10 am:
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.

I am visiting Ireland for the first time next week. My maternal great grandfather was Michael Joy, born in 1874 in Emly. He emigrated with his wife to Liverpool at some stage - my grandmother appears in the 1901 Census in Liverpool, aged 6. We don't have a birth certificate for her and aren't sure if she was born in Ireland or Liverpool. Hope to find out more when we visit Emly next week.

I am third great granddaughter of Patrick Kean, son of Patrick Kean and Eleanor Beardon, baptised in Parish of Emly on 17th March 1826. He left Ireland in 1856 arriving in Melbourne, Australia in February 1857. He died in Melbourne 8th May 1880. He was married to Maria Glennon of Athlone, Co. Roscommon. He had five children. One of his daughter, Deborah Maria Kean was my great grandmother. She married John Dacy (Deasy). Pleased to correspond with any other researchers and to learn more of the Kean family. They have been the most elusive of all my ancestors. Proudly Irish fifth generation Australian.

This is for Patrick Lonergan who posted a query on 14th April 2016. I believe your father was my uncle. My mother was Mary Lonergan and she had a brother named Patrick. Jo Hogan was my aunt, my grandfather was Ailbe Lonergan and grandmother Bridget Lonergan. I can put you in touch with my cousin who lives in Ireland (daughter of Teresa Lonergan (sister of Jo) if you haven't had any other response. I came across your post quite by chance.
