Collins family Achonry
Michael and Catherine Collins lived in Achonry in the early 1800s. Catherine died in 1853, Michael in 1860. Their children Mary, John, William and Bridget emigrated to Australia during the 1850s. Their daughter Catherine remained in Ireland, probably continuing to live in the Achonry area. It is possible there were other children who also led their lives in the area. The Australian descendants of Michael and Catherine Collins would dearly love to know of any descendants remaining in Ireland. Tobercurry, Drumbaun are other places within the Achonry area that members of the Collins family may have lived. Please contact me if you think you may know anything at all. The family tree is on by numerous descendants.

Looking for Brennan and Henry relations
My grandfather, Patrick Brennan left the Tuberrcurry area around 1865 & settled in Yonkers, NY. His father was also Patrick, married to Ann Henry. He had many siblins, including Thomas, Charles, Ann, William and Winifred. On a recent visit to your area, I stopped in your church and found a beautiful Stained glass window with some of those same names. Wondering if any knows about this family or any of these individuals. My grandfather died many years before I was born and my dad died young before I was able to ask about his family history. It would be fantastic if someone could provide any information. Thank you. 4

family search Rice - Bench - Nolan
Hello, I am traveling to Ireland Oct 8th to the 15th next month. I am trying to find a church that would have information on my grandfather's grandfather. What churches in Ireland have records dating back to 1790 to 1840's? I have naturalization papers for my grandfathers father Michael Rice in 1856 in America. I think he was born 7 Aug 1831 in Wexford. I am unable to find his parents Edward and Hannah Nolan. Also, my grandfathers mother Catharine Bench was born in Ireland to John and Margaret Bench in? 1832? My hope is to find a place of my roots to visit during my stay. I dream of meeting live family members. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you Arlene Gennari

Hello, does anyone remember the Gormanly family of Crimlin, Achonry?
Thomas and Margaret(Maggie,Nee Brennan)Gormanly were my grandparents. I am trying to trace my Aunts, Bridget Mary, Eileen Theresa, Nora Agnes and my Uncle William Edward (Willie). Maggie passed away in 1960, does anyone have any information about what happened to the children after that time? My grandfather Thomas lived until 1971. The children would have attended Achonry school, circa 1935-1955. Is there anyone in Achonry now, who remembers them from school days? It would be fantastic if a school or family photograph exists that my family and I could see. Any information would be greatly appreciated to help with this most difficult of searches. Thank you very much in advance. best regards Kerry Gormanley ( I am the daughter of the eldest boy Joe)
