Recently in digging up my roots, I found out my great-grandfather was from (Bartoose)Emly. Could someone please explain to me how or why his name changed from Timothy O'Meara to Timothy O'Meara Burke? I would love to plan a trip to see this or have it explained to me.

Many happy years were spent visiting the fabulous McInerney family in the beautiful little town of Emly.

My husband and I visited your town on our honeymoon in August 2006 as we drove around southern Ireland. We loved your town so much and were quite impressed with the beauty of your church and the surrounding land. We now share your town with our three year old daughter, Emly Grace who enjoys seeing pictures of the beautiful town for which she is named.

I have been trying to pinpoint the home of my great grandparents for many years now. The two families that came to America and began my tree there were Flynn and Kinnane. The Flynn's are from the Ballylanders area and the oldest known relative was John Flynn who married Elizabeth Meade in 1818 at Kildorerry. Their son Thomas married Johanna Leary in Ballylanders 1858. My Ggrandfather John Flynn was Christened in Ballylanders in 1859. He left for the US in 1882. He married Mary C. Kinnane in 1888 in Fitchburg, MA. The marriage was arranged so, there is no doubt the Flynn's knew these Kinnane's before they all emigrated. Mary Kinnane's family was from the region surrounding Galbally but, for the life of me, I cannot find a homestead for her family. Her father was Thomas Kinnane b: ~1828 and her mother was Nora Hanrahan b: ~1840. The family emigrated to the USA in 1884 and children of Thomas and Nora were Patrick, Annie, Mary, Nora, Bridget and I believe Margaret. My wife and I will be coming back to Ireland this fall and I would love to find someone from the family that can help me put these pieces together.

My time spent in Emly have given me such pleasant memories, and hope to return next year for a visit with my partner, so I may show him what a pretty little place it is.
