Last weekends Stonethrowers Rally in Tipperary produced some great results for the local crews that made the trip to Clonmel to compete in the one day Event which was the fourth Round of the very Competitive National Championship. T|he Event comprised of a 3×3 Stage format resulting in 9 very challenging Stages laid on by Tipperary Motor Club. There was success for Millstreet’s Sean Moynihan /MacKierans in their Ford Escort Mark 2 who came out on top of the Class 12 Results after leading the Class from the very first stage of the day,while another Local Crew in the form of Colin Philpott/Declan Casey competing in a Suzuki Swift emerged victorious in Class 23,while Derry Long swapped from the driving seat over to the Navigators Seat for this Event and guided Colin Roche in his Toyota Starlet to 1st in Class 11R, the Rally was won by Josh Moffett from Monaghan in a Ford Fiesta WRC who was in turn followed home by Donegal Man Declan Boyle in a similar Car with Moffett having a winning margin of just 7 Seconds after a hard days competition. Roy White was the top Tipperary competitor and he went on to finish 3rd overall also aboard a Fiesta WRC with Dromtarriffe Man James O`Brien as usual occupying the Co-Drivers Seat for White, so another good weekend was had for all the local Competitors who were competing in Clonmel.

Grass Cutting Service
I am coming to Ireland in April and am looking investigating some family history and visiting cemeteries.
I was looking for information on my grandfather’s family, the Leary/O’Leary family from the Dromtariffe Region. In particular, Cornelius Leary b.1831/1832, son of Cornelius Leary and Catherine O’Shea/Shea. Cornelius married Johanna Horgan and they came to Australia with Jeremiah and Catherine Leary in 1855.
I then came across a document titled From Dromagh to Sydney about the McMurtrie Family. My grandmother was a direct descendant of the family in this document. We never knew of a Irish connection.
I was hoping someone might be able to guide me in the direction of local cemeteries and records relating to theses two families?
