James MORAN m Bridget HEALY Achonry
I found a birth cert possibly for my great grandfather, Owen MORAN. Mar 15 1844 Achonry Parish. He was from Ballinrumpa when he married Catherine (Kate) DUFFY of Skeheen. Their marriage cert states both fathers were name James & both were deceased. The birth I found names James MORAN & Bridget HEALY as parents. I know there was another Owen MORAN/Kate DUFFY union in Clooniron. I never found Owen's mother's name so I want to be sure this is the correct baptism. Would a child be baptized in Achonry in 1844 if a father was from Ballinrumpa? Is there any other records to check? TIA

Dyer and Scanlons
My Father Michael Dyer (Dwyer after US Military Service), was born in this parish in 1928 to Bartholomew and Kate Dyer (Scanlon). He had siblings, James, Kate, Batty, Bridget and John. When Mary Scanlon died, the children were sent to St. Joseph Industrial In Salthill, Galway and possibly the Mercy convent as well. The eldest children James and Kate were kept. I am trying to get any information from anyone who remembers them or get in touch with Jackie and Mary Scanlon, that still live in the area. Any help is welcome. I am writing a book and more importantly, I want to get my sister and my six nieces (in Wexford) to Sligo to find our Fathers original home. I was there in 2006 with my Dad as a last visit before he died, and its just a foundation, but would be great to locate the spot and document it. Thank you

responding to Megan McIntyre(Dec18)
My grandfather John McIntyre (b1880) was the eldest son of Peter McIntyre of Cloonacool parish and Margaret Healy of the adjoining parish of Achonry and divided the family farm with his brother Pat McIntyre at Leitrim North, Cloonacool. They had eight other siblings, and between them they had 15 children most of whom settled in Ireland. There are now five McIntyre families living on that farm all of whom are relatives of yours If you would like to share a little more of your family story I may be able to fill out your story if you cnntact me directly email below.

Research on McIntyres from Pullagh/Cloonacool area
My McIntyre ancestors lived in Pullagh and/or Cloonacool during the 1820-1865 time frame. Patrick and Mary McIntyre, with son John born in 1845, and probably other children as well. One of those children might have been Peter McIntyre (b. 1848) who married Margaret Healy in Achonry parish and had a number of children. By chance does anyone know of this family? I believe Peter and Margaret settled in Leitrim North, and perhaps some of their grandchildren are still in the area and members of this parish? I’m looking for cousins who might be able to help fill in some holes in my family tree. Any guidance s much appreciated.

Waters/Wynne family search
Hello. My GGG Grandfather Lawrence Waters immigrated to Canada from Mullinabreen Sligo osme time between 1811 and 1842. I am wondering if these lines are still prevalent in Sligo area please? Thank you.

hello. I am researching my grandfather,s activities in the War of Independence. His wife, Catherine Kennedy (nee COx) often spoke of how she lost all her wedding presents when their home was burnt out. I reckon this was the reprisal of Black and Tans in Tubbercurry in response to the shooting of an RIC officer. Their firstborn, Louie, was born in Chaffpoole. I am trying to place the family at the site of this reprisal. My grandfathers name was John Griffith Kennedy. Later known as Sean. He also managed a mine in Arigna and later the family moved to Castlerea. His family or origin is listed in Mullinabreena in the 1911 census. He is listed as a photographer. He later wrote for Roscommon Herald. In the 1955 edition of that paper he wrote of his gunrunning for The ORahilly when funds were raised at a Church gate collection. Any information welcome. Thank you. Mary Marmion Wicklow Any information
