Trying to find more information on John Joseph O'Connell a Blacksmith, Born Sept 1861, Castlelyons Parish. At that time would Bartlemy have been included in the Parish.

Does any reader know of any O'Connell's Blacksmiths from the area from around that time to present. Any info at all would be appreciated.

FLANAGAN - I have always been told that my great grandfather John Flanagan came from Co. Cork, but I don't know where. He would have been born around 1840s/1850s - possibly even the 1830s. I've been told there are some Flanagan families from Castlelyons. His first son was named William, which makes me think perhaps his father was William? And I should say that I have one cousin who believes my great grandfather's name was Michael - but my grandfather's death certificate says John. I'd love to hear from anyone who knows anything about Flanagan families from Cork.

Our O'Briens were located at Pellick and Kilcor Castles from or before 1525 to about 1850 when Cornelius O'Brien sold the property - Therefore, we have assembled a great deal of information about this clan - In reviewing the Genealogical Table (draft) we became curious about the inter-marriages of the Clans (families) in the area during this period - Because of this, we have begun to research the following groups for our records

They are, the O'Briens, Barry, O'Callaghan, O'Connor, and Coppinger's -

Should you have any information about these great historical families please forward to me at pob1@roadrunner.com -
THANKS and GOD BLESS

Hello,
It is possible that my great-grandfather, James Kent, was from Castlelyons. We think he was born around 1845 and immigrated to the U.S. in the 1860s. He married Catherine Donovan. We believe she was from County Cork, but have no more specific information about her birthplace.

Would anyone know more about either James Kent or Catherine Donovan?

Thank you. sharondoherty8@yahoo.com

Spent an enjoyable few hours in Castleyons visiting the abbey and the cemetery. So impressed by how beautifully well cared for they were.

I have written about the visit on my website, with photos and a link to this site. It can be found at http://johnshortlandwriter.com/2015/05/19/castleyons-an-irish-gem/

Looking forward to returning one day to explore all the other fascinating places you list.

Hello -
I'm looking for family history on Joyce's from Castlelyons. Would anyone have information on John T. Joyce, born 1863 in Cork and Ellen (McMorrow) Joyce born 1872 who emigrated to Brookline, MA. in 1888 and were married in 1890. John T. Joyce's father was Thomas Joyce who I believe was born in 1843 and emigrated in 1862. My aunt Alice told us we came from Castlelyons.

Greetings! I am trying to check into a possible lead regarding my O'Brien line. I am researching my Great Great Grandfather Bartholomew O'Brien who I know came from County Cork. One possible route for me to explore comes from the baptism records of one Bartholomew O'Brien from this area. The date of the baptism is 1838 and the listed parents were William O'Brien and Johanna McDonnell. While I am not 100% positive that these are the parents of my Bartholomew O'Brien, it is one avenue I want to look into.

Hello! We will be traveling to Ireland this summer and would like some information on family that used to live in Catlelyons. The Nason family immigrated to the United States in about 1839. If anyone has any history on this family I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you so much and am looking forward to visiting your beautiful country!!

Hello! Looking for the Sullivan's of Castlelyons Parish. Does anyone know of a Fahen Sullivan born 1931? My great Uncle John Sullivan is buried in St. Nicholas Cemetery. I recently found his headstone through the Irish genealogy project. His is photo #7. I know this to be true as I have of a letter written in John Sullivan's hand to my maternal grandmother Margaret Walsh Jones, his neice. He wrote the letter May 31,1936 in Kill St. Anne, Castlelyons. The letter tells us that life was not easy then. He makes reference to having buried his wife 7 years, they had a daughter Margaret Anne who died on Christmas Day 1935 at age 1 yr.& 3 months. Also a son named Fahen born August 1931, ( a photo was sent with the letter). He says he buried his brother Tom in Sept. 1935. It seems that some of the siblings came to America, sisters Mary (married John Walsh)and Annie and a brother(name unknown), John, Julia and Tom stayed in Ireland. I would love to find Fahen should he still be with with us and his descendants. If anyone has a hint of information to help piece my family puzzle together, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks...
