Jimmy Cronin

Jimmy Cronin is a character of Millstreet
And in Duhallow his is a well known face
For years he coached the Millstreet young footballers
And he became known beyond his home place.

Jimmy Cronin had a stroke but he recovered
A young man at heart though in years getting old
In Millstreet Town his name will live forever
For he is one who has a ‘heart of gold’

O’Halloran/Halloran, Twomey

I am looking for anyone in the Millstreet area who may be related or knows of anyone who is to the above family. My Grandfather, Patrick was born in the Millstreet workhouse in 1872 to Mary, nee Twomey and John Halloran who were married in Millstreet in 1865. They had three other children, Denis born in Millstreet in 1867 and twins John and Hannah born in Cork city in 1869. The family, minus Denis and Hannah, who we presume both died in childhood emigrated to New Zealand in the 1880’s. Hoping there is someone who can help us.
Best regards,
Kevin O’Halloran [read more …] “O’Halloran/Halloran, Twomey”
