Congratulations to Emly on winning the tidiest village in Ireland 2011 today.
My family and I visited Emly in September 2011. My father who is 93 years old, had requested we look for Emly on our trip to Ireland as his Mother's family (Ryan) had emigrated from there in the 19th Century. We took a lot of photos of your pretty town for him. Thank you for the information on the website which has encouraged an interest in our family origins.
Hello Father Seamus Rochford. We are coming on September 5 to Emly. Please email me at my new email address: email@example.com.

hi i would like to congratulate the tidy town committee members for all their hard work in making Emly village looking beautiful all year round..its a credit and to drive through it and the bright flowers on the way in make it all the more reason to say that i am glad to be from Emly and iam proud of where i came from..
Emly looks to be such a charming place. I think my great-grandfather came from Emly. He was John Heffernan, and we've always thought he was from Tipperary.
There is a John Heffernan, the son of John Heffernan and Mary Bourke who matches our 1827 birthdate. He was baptized in Emly 16 Nov 1827. I would welcome any information. Kindest Regards,

I am trying to locate anyone connected to William McEniry and Catherine Donovan McEniry. They emigrated from Emly to Troy NY sometime prior to 1862. I appreciate any help.
hello to everyone I met in Emly over the weekend for Martin and Bridget's wedding. We had a fantastic time and it was great to meet so many people that we know. A big thank you to Patsi and Carmel Saturday night was brilliant.Cant wait to come home again.Hope to see everyone in the summer.
Dear Father Rochford, It has been a few years since I posted on the Emly website. My Uncle Cornelius Morgan Griffin wanted me to let you know that his grandson Daniel is currently studying to become a priest in Rome. I thought you would like to know that a "son" of Emly has decided to serve the Lord. I look forward to the day when I can come to Emly to visit. Take care. Tim
Gooday to everyone in Emly, my wife and I have been to visit twice in the last two years and really loved it, although I am five generations away from Emly it still feels like home!

Well Done EMLY.
all the best to everyone at home.
Love this new site and impressed with how much better it looks and is easier to use. Our visit in 2008 was a wonderful experience for my mother, tracing her mother (Mary Nyhan) and her family here....thanks again Father Rochford and the Nyhan (Cunningham) family for your wonderful hospitality. Hoping Phil Cunnigham is on the mend, sending our prayers and thoughts to her and the village from Mary's grandchildren and great and great great grandchildren....and Catherine Quinlan Nyhan's & husband Timothy Nyhan's Gt Gt Gt Grandchildren.
Looking for help, this is a long shot but I wonder if there is anyone who would have known of my Grandfather who was born in Emly in 1911 his name was Timothy O'Dwyer son of Thomas O'Dwyer and Sarah Hayes.
best to luck to emly lads in west final sun hope it goes our way
