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.

My maternal Great-Great grandparents came from your parish and I recently found records to verify my Great-Great Grandfathers Thomas Quinlan's baptism. I am overjoyed! Having visited Ireland twice, I must have been within a stones throw ofyour parish and didnt know.

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.

I am a descendant of Ellen Browne who migrated to Otago in 1868 from Australia.Her parents were Patrick Browne and Mary O'Dwyer, she had six brothers, Thomas, John, Matthew, Patrick, and David.Her brother Matthew also came to Otago in 1869 after his marriage to Bridget Roynane in 1868. A cousin, Joan Haughey visited Emly a number of years ago. I can't find the marriage of Patrick Browne and Mary O'Dwyer; nor any other information on them. It would be fantastic if I could get more information soon so that I can include it in a family history book I am writing on Ellen Browne and her husband Timothy Walkins. Regards, Roz

For Michael Carroll There seem to be two of you, with some similar information. The Bourkes are so numerous and hard to identify in Emly that I followed and traced a Bourke family for 20 years before finding out it was in error. They intermarried with my Carrolls and Ryans. I have some information that may be interesting for you both. email at shanahan@ameritech.net

My mother was Mai Moloney who lived at Lackelly in the early 1900's. Her family house was burned down by the Black and Tans. She left for England in the 1920's. Her brother Danny stayed in Ireland and raised a family. I would love to make contact with my cousins or family.

This is the town of my dreams! I don't know yet if any of my relatives come from here, but when I come to Ireland I'll sure be visiting, it seems like a town that's as perfect as possible on the great Earth. If I'm ever to realize my dream of living in Ireland I hope I'd be able to love here. Thanks for the wonderful website! -Emily
