  3. Anyone know the Healy family from Milstreet, They were a large family back in the turn of the century Denis Healy and Mary Sweeney. My grandmother was one of their 18 children. If you are connected to this family please email me at <email> Thanks Chris Kennedy

    1. hi Chris,
      there are lots of Healy’s in Millstreet, so you may want to narrow your search if you can.
      i suggest looking at the burial and baptism records for Millstreet Parish (link below), and try to track down your ancestors. See out old post on accessing the parish Baptism, marriage and Burial records from 1950-1903

      you could also check the census details from 1901 & 1909 to get more details of the healys that were in millstreet at the time. We have written previously on how to access those census details online are located at:

  6. Hi, I’m looking for information on Bat Kelleher,Horsemount,Kilcorney. He left for the US in 1911/1912. He was a champion weight thrower both in Ireland and the US. His brother Matt was prominent in the IRA movement is the area at the time. As was Bat from San Francisco is securing pistols for use in Ireland. His aunt was Catherine Kelleher who also moved to San Francisco along with her husband Denis O Connor and their children. Any information or photos if there are surviving Kellehers would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks in advance, Ciara

  7. Seeking any descendants of Denis Creedon and Ellen Cronin parents of Bart, Denis, John, Johanna, Daniel, Mary and Michael born between 1855 -1865. Bart, Denis and John went to America and Michael to Australia.

  8. I am trying to solve a small family mystery that involves Millstreet, Rathcoole, Coolclough and the US town of Concord, Massachusetts. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

    In April 1890 my 3rd great-uncle William Buckley (1846-1924), son of Timothy Buckley and Ellen Healy of Rathcoole, married a woman named Catherine Kiley (1855-1933) in the town of Concord, Massachusetts. He was 44; she was 34. It was the first marriage for each. (William had emigrated to the US in 1870; Catherine in 1880).

    Catherine was from Millstreet—she was baptized in Millstreet RC parish on May 26, 1855; her parents were Denis Keily and Mary Behan and their address in 1855 was “Bridge” (as yet unidentified).

    Catherine’s mother, Mary Behan, was originally from Coolclough in the RC parish of Dromtariffe. She was married in Dromtariffe parish in February 1850, and evidently she and her husband settled in or near Millstreet after their marriage. They were living in Coomlogane in 1864. Denis Keily was a shoemaker.

    Millstreet and Coolclough are both of course only a few miles distant from Rathcoole, so it occurred to me that there may have been some connection between the Buckleys of Rathcoole and either the Behans of Coolclough or the Keilys (of Millstreet?) that ultimately caused Catherine to gravitate to Concord, where William was, after she emigrated to the US.

    I have one piece of documentary evidence that suggests a possible connection between the Buckleys and the Kielys in Ireland. That evidence is a December 1916 letter from Mary Ellen Buckley (1891-1919), a daughter of William Buckley (1846-1924), to her cousin William Buckley (also well-known as “Liam O’Buachalla”) (1882-1941). Liam was a son of John Buckley (1833-1920) and a grandson of Timothy Buckley and Ellen Healy. In the letter, Mary Ellen asks Liam “do you ever hear of Dan + Den + Marie Kiely and how are they.”

    This letter suggests that there was in fact some connection between the Buckleys and the Kielys, since Mary Ellen seems to have expected Liam, a Buckley, to know what was happening with the Kielys in Ireland. (“Dan + Den” of course may not have been Kielys but clearly “Marie” was.)

    I would be very interested in hearing of any leads that might help to prove or disprove a connection between the Buckleys and the Kielys or the Behans. One specific question is whether Mary Ellen’s reference to “Dan + Den + Marie Kiely”—presumably people still living in the Millstreet-Rathcoole area in 1916–ring any bells with anyone? I realize I am not giving you much to go on.

    My apologies for the long post and my thanks in advance to anyone who even tries to help!
