Walsh family tree

I was wondering if someone might please be able to help me?

My name is Helen Sagan and I live in Australia. I understand it is not your job to do family history research for anyone who might happen to ask, but I am looking for some very specific local history information regarding the Rockite movement of 1822 and I thought you might best be able to assist or direct me.

I am researching my husbands Walsh family tree, on the Kerry side of the Blackwater, in-fact I visited your library back in 2011 and spent many pleasant hours looking through the Casey Collection.

At present I am investigating two brothers Healy, Tadj(Timothy?) and Liam(William?) that were executed on 10th August 1822 (along with 3 others) and have their names inscribed upon a monument erected at Shinnagh Cross, Rathmore. I believe these brothers to be my husband’s  Uncles and would sincerely love more information on them.

Most recently I discovered the Duchas School books (a truly marvellous & enlightening collection!) which introduced me to tales of old local people during the 1930’s, recalling stories their grandparents would have told them, some about the Whiteboy uprising and precisely the 1822 murder of William Brereton and the subsequent events that resulted in and around Rathmore.

Uniting All Through Internet Radio!

The true value of Internet Radio – our own Cork Music Station – was wonderfully demonstrated on this Tuesday’s “Radio Treasures” (13th Oct. 2020) when an hour before the programme I got in contact with Joan Healy of Drishane Road, Millstreet to indicate that Joan’s late husband the great Conchubhar Ó hÉalaithe would be featuring on an Archival Recording scheduled to be broadcast at 10pm.   By the time of transmission Joan’s superb Family were tuned in worldwide and sent many uplifting live messages to our programme.   Here we share a selection of those much appreciated messages:

Listening keenly here in the Middle East. It is a lovely sounding radio show …….   (Stephen Healy…tuning in from Quatar)

Sincere thanks to all the wonderful Healy Family worldwide for tuning in to our special broadcast.   A copy of the complete recording will later be presented to the Healy Family….as we all remember the late Conchubhar.
