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

My ancestors were actually married on 29 Jan 1829 at St. Michael's in Tipperary, the home parish of the bride's family. However, their first child may have been born in Emly in June of 1829. His name was John O'DWYER and his parents were Patrick O'DWYER and Mary CLEARY. The family emigrated in 1831 to Pennsylvania, living in Centre and Clarion Counties. Subsequent children were Peter, Michael, William, Sarah, Mary, Cornelius, Edward, Patrick (my line), Hannah, and Alice. I would love to make contact with anyone who could help me. Thank you.

Denis Maroney appears to have married Mary Bourke in February 1816 in Emly church, co Tipperary According to rootsireland Denis Moroney and Mary Bourke had the following children Mathew(1816), Judy (1819), Mathew (1821), Margaret (1823), Margaret (1826), Mary (1828), Patrick (1831) and Ellen (1833). The first four were baptised in Galbally, Co Limerick. The address given on one of the baptisms is Kilross. A lot of Galbally's parish is in Co Tipperary. This is the case with Kilross. The last 4 were baptised in Solohead, Co Tipperary and the address given on one of those baptisms was Emly. My knowledge of the area is not great but as far as I know Kilross and Emly are close together......maybe only a mile or so separating them Denis and Mary and Family travelled to Australia in 1841 on the Neptune. Their son Patrick doesn't appear on the passenger list but he witnessed Denis death in Australia. He would have been only 10 in 1841 so why wasn't he on the ship? Any info on Denis or Mary's parents would be great before we visit Emly in the future. Regards Laurie
