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

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

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.
