wanted to drop you a line, to say that the website is excellent. I really love reading all the local news and seeing the pictures
of the social nights out.It
makes the distance between here and home alot less when I'm reading all the different stories.Keep up the good work and your
effort is appreciated! Sinead,John

Dear Paul, As I gazed in wonderment at your valuable
research . and read with distress at the treatment metered out to thousands of innocent people a sense of Injustice consumed
me and I was inspired to find out more out my husbands ancestors. Being just a beginner I wondered if you would be kind enough
to post a message regarding Andrew Micheal Markham born Kirlrush< about l810. We are looking for his ancestors and
his descendants. We know that two of his children Patrick born l829 married Maria Hagney in 1856 in Australia.
And Martin Micheal (the line I am interested in) married first to Bridget in l856 and then Elizabeth Anne in1866. Martin
came to Australia in l851 on the Emperor” Patrick came to Australia 6 months later on “ St. Vincent”Accompanying
them were Bridget and Mary and we think they may be the sisters. There is no record of Andrews wife but her name may
be Bridget. Any information at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and good luck to all your family. Your
ancestors you have recorded would be proud of you – a true Irish son. Carolyn Markham email@example.com
be interested in hearing from anybody who is related to the Halloran family from Moyfadda. In 1901 the family consisted of
Bridget the mother and three children Michael, Bridget and Mary. This is for genealogical purposes.
Greetings from Murroe, Co. Limerick (Home of the Glenstal Abbey Monks.). Just got Broadband into our house here and Collette and
Noel have told me so much about your site, I decided tonight to check it out for myself. I note that my uncle Br. Pat Madigan
(now in Africa and hopefully coming home for good towards end of 2007 and also my good brother Derek) have already signed
your guest book.. Paul well done on your work with this site and all the best for the future..

Dear Mr. Markham,
Thank you for all your dedication and efforts on your website. You'll
never know how much it means to people who have left the area, recently and generations ago. I
fall into the latter category. My great-grandmother was Margaret Foley of Erribul, whose parents were Henry and Susan/Joanna
Cuggeran (she of Cloonsnaughta). Margaret emigrated in 1882, yet I have located only one Foley descended from the
same line still living in Clare, Tim Foley of Clonola, Kildysart. The O'Neills, Sean and Maeve, of Erribul are connected to
the same Foleys, and I've met them and Mrs. O'Neill. I wonder if any other Foleys in and about the area might
be descended from a connected family? Henry had a brother Patrick who married another Cuggeran sister (the Clonola
Foleys are his line), and likely another brother Denis who married Ellen Kinnane, who had two sons at least, George and
Martin. I noticed the photo of Maeve and Catherine Foley recently on your Breaking News page, which brought this question
to my mind...
HI UNCLE PAUL :D! very nice site. hope everythings going well over there! - have fun!

Upon doing a internet search of my grandfather, Michael Falahee, I came across your article. I must commend you on both
the breadth of your piece and the overall effort made to reveal information that not only I but several members of my
family found intriguing. You stated that the gun used by my grandfather during the War of Independence was recovered.
Do you have any idea of its whereabouts today. Also, would you happen to know where I could find a recorded copy of
the song "The Battle of Tullycrine?" Any information you could give me would be immensely appreciated. Thank you
for your time.

Dear Mr Markham,
been on your website which I think is brilliant.
I am looking for information regarding my great grandparents Patrick &
nee Chambers who married in 1876 in the Chapel of Cooraclare. They had six children, one of whom was my grandmother.
I am looking for a Patrick Neylon who worked in Scotland as a
Steelworker the early 1900's.
I am struggling with Patrick Hanrahan's parents. No mother's name only fathers's - Connor. I cannot go back further
without this information.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Anne Darroch 3/10/2006
I loved all the wonderful stories and information on the website.
Congratulations on a facinating look back at history.
I wondered if anybody could give me any information about the place name
I think it might have been on the Vandeleur Estate.

Dear Mr. Markham, 22 July 2006
I stumbled across this website during a search for my County Clare
Markham ancestors. Wonderful
site and fantastic photos!
I also read your family history page but, unfortunately,
it did not go
back far enough for me to ascertain whether or not my Markham's are also
yours. Perhaps you may be able to help?
My search begins with James
Markham, born 1808 and died 15 Jan. 1907. He was married to Catherine O'Loughlin, born 1844 and died 14 Jan 1925 They
lived in Ennistymon, Co. Clare. Their house, eventually taken over and rebuilt by their son, Patrick, still stands in
Their children were:
John - born
James - born January 1861
Michael - born July
Margaret - born April 1866
Susan - born August 1867
Patrick - born June 1870
Mary Anne - born February
Catherine - born July 1875
Catherine Frances - born
05 August 1886 (This was my grandmother)
If you have any information to share with me, I would greatly

Have you ever wondered what it is like visiting Ireland,
either for the first time, or
returning to the homeland when possible?
Hope you enjoy the following, It's probably
too long to print.
We fell in love with Ireland.
The morning sun was
rising. The earth was dark and cold.
Across the broad horizon the wonders soon unfold.
Dublin on the Liffey rising towards the sky.
We fell in love with Ireland, as the morning
sun went by.
The winding roads through Wicklow
can take you anywhere,
Killarney lakes so pretty, or the the Curragh in Kildare.
Cruising down the Shannon, Oh! Limerick what a view.
Tonight we sleep in Beds Of Silk, Lab'sheeda
we love you.
Oh, Emerald Isle of beauty, the rarest
I have seen.
On the roads 'round Derryguiha, I strolled with my colleen.
Dan Furey Fest was crowded, We danced the Cashel set.
We came to visit Ireland, just cannot
leave it yet.
There are football games in Kerry,
hurling games in Clare.
Galway, Mayo, Sligo, there's music everywhere.
There's soccer up in Donegal, there's fishing in Loughrea.
If you take your cares to Ireland,
they'll just wash'em out to sea.
so famous, your crystal is so clear.
In County Cork, the Blarney Stone, we kissed it without
Tonight we dine at Templebar, and have a pint or two.
It's time to visit Ireland if you're feeling kind of blue
The golden sun is setting, the daily chores are done.
I hear the sounds of music, the night
has just begun.
We still remember Dublin, rising towards the sky.
We fell in love with Ireland, and it's hard to say goodbye.

My mother, NORA McINERNEY went to Coolmeen School. She was born in 1920 and
is still alive, living in Liverpool.
Are their any records of her at school?
Her parents were Michael and Susan (nee KELLY). If anyone has any
information on them,
I'd be grateful.

I have just seen your site and would like to say how much I enjoyed it.
I mixture of past and current events , almost like living history.
I am a Clancy with roots in Kilrush so I was particularly interested in
your item on Peadar Clancy, I do not know if he was a relation.
I live in France and am married to a French lady, however we are both very interested
in the Irish side of the family. My great grand father was
James Clancy carpenter,
who lived in Kilrush in the middle of the
nineteenth century. My grand father was also
a James Clancy, born in 1875 he was also a carpenter and the undertaker in Kilrush, his first son (my uncle) was
also a James clancy, the town clerk. My father was Patrick James Clancy, a carpenter, he left for England in the
I am sorry that my direct links with Ireland broke with the death of my
father in 1981, I am glad to see that your family is big and strong and continuing to grow best

I am trying to find a website in Labasheeda if possible. My ancestors
(and a few living relatives are from there - I am doing a
family tree and am interested in Bermingham Murphy and
Peter Connell's families, I was
in Ireland in 1967 and visited a cemetary that had their grave stones but was hoping to find census information if possible. My
grandmother and her three sisters came to the US in the late 1800's and their cousin Katie Murphy Hospal also around
that time period.
Do you know of anyone I can contact?
Thank you,Peggy Liddy 23rd April 2006

Dear Mr. Markham,
truly love your site, and all the information it provides. My wife
is Mary Sullivan, nee
Crehan , of Kilkerrin, Labasheeda, County Clare. Your site provides current information, and we
first learned of her
nephew, Steven Crehan's engagement on your site. Hope you can keep
up the good work. Can we help support your efforts? Please advise.
Dan and Mary Sullivan,
I found your web site and saw a family research question and I was hoping you could post mine I am doing some family research
on the Malone family from Shanneka More and I am hoping something might ring a bell to your readers. I took an add out in
the Clare Champion several years ago and received back two responses. One was from a Michael McMahon of Cork who told me
his mother Ann Malone was part of the family I was looking for. Michael's brother
died a few years ago in Cahercon, I visited the area that summer, but he was already gone. Another woman responded but
unfortunetly I lost her name and number. Here is the information, my great grandmother Mary Malone was born in 1854 to Patrick
Malone and Susan Houlihan. She was baptised in St. Michaels in Kilyderst. She came to America with her brother's
Michael, Patrick and Thomas. Her brother John stayed in Clare and married Sarah Hehir, Sarah's father was named
Martin. At least five of their children came to New Jersey. I know a son Michael stayed in Ireland. The other children
Mary, Patrick and Susan, I don't know what happened to them. My great grandmother's father Patrick had a brother
named Thomas. This Thomas had a son also named John who married a Mary Grady in 1877 in Kilmurry-McMahon.
Her father was named Patrick. This couple had about ten children, three of which came to New Jersey the remaining one's
were name Patrick, Michael, Alice, Susan and Ann.
When I was in Clare
I was told the two Michaels were called Sarge Malone and Tailor Malone. Also one of them was a foster father to John
Haugh the famous wood carver. I would be greatful if this sounds familar to anyone and they would

Hi Paul, hope all and everybody is well. Please tell Jack and Mary and
everyone I was asking for them. Haven’t been down for a few years –
and Finn are always too busy hurling to go anywhere else! Your website is brilliant, great to find out what everyone
is up to, keep up
the good work. Can I ask a favour? I’ve been trying to get my
hands on the 2005 edition of ‘The Other Clare’ because it has an article on excavations related to
my research (Irish Iron Age burials): ‘Archaeology on the route of the Ennis Bypass’ [this might have been written
by Graham Hull]. UCD library don’t have a copy yet, would you happen to have one that you might photocopy those
pages for me from? No worries if you don’t, i’m sure one will turn up eventually.
I have a few sites in and around Clare I must visit sometime during the
next year, maybe
we could have a pint? All the best, Tiernan.

-- G'day Paul,
Greetings from Australia! My name is Niamh McDonagh. My mum comes from
near the village of Knock. My great grandfather, James King, owned
Oaklands. I would like
to know if you have any history on THE BENNETTS who
were the former owners? Mum loves reading
about the local news and gossip!
Thanks for a job well done, 10/8/05
'Took some time out this morning to look at your website...it's a credit
you & a tribute to the Markham family the great work you are doing. It is a wonderful resource for West Clare
people now residing far from home who like to keep in touch with local happenings.
I was in South Africa in April 2005 & saw a number of men's clothing
outlets bearing the name 'Markham', any connection to the Derryguiha
I hear you have yet another local history book published...
Keep up the good work

Congratulations! I just
received your book from Mary (Val) McMahon,
Clondrina. It's a lovely book so well turned
out even to a beautiful back cover picture I haven't been able to contact you since our meeting.
It's really great to have local history coming into its own in this way,
neglected so long
for what ever reasons.
Mick Larkin, Mullinahone, Co. Tipp. June 05.
Just finished your book on the life and
times of T.J. Ryan. I really
enjoyed it. The local place and family names made each
page come to life,rolling back the years as a little piece of history was recorded for future generations.
In this era of materialism we in Coolmeen are lucky to have some one who still finds the time to research and record the history
of our area. Looking forward to your next book!!!!!!!!! Desmond Murphy.

I have been to Labasheeda a couple of times and have fallen in love with
the place. I have found a cottage
on the outskirts of the town that used to be
a shop and a dance! many years ago. I would to find out who owns it as I
think it deserves to be loved. I know there most be a cottage out there for
me within a reasonable prise range. I also noticed that there was no shop in
Labasheeda, is this the case. I would be grateful if you could help me in
this quest. I

Someone in the family has said that our original Mathew Cunningham married a Mary
McMahon of Kilmurry-Mcmahon. I am coming up against brick walls with the Cunningham side, so i thought i'd try and investigate
the mcmahons.Apparently Marys mother gave a considerable amount of money for her grandsonThomas to leave ireland for
America but instead he came to Australia.. I know i have asked a lot of questions of you but Is there a mcmahon family
still living in Kilmurry-Mcmahon that has been there forever? Can you please put me in contact with them so i can
investigate this. Thank you

father was Pat Collins a tailor by trade and his mother was Hanora Collins. I have seen in your notes that there are still
Collins family living in Shessive. Could you tell me how I could contact them? I am planning a trip to Ireland this year to
locate and hopefully the graves of my great grandparents. Your assistance is greatly appreciated………Dave

Dear Paul, we treasure the memories of a wonderful evening ride in a horse and trap in the middle
of the mist with you and Eamon. Also, you and your parents honoured the famous hospitality by offering us a delicious evening
meal. It was a magic moment and, to us, like going back to the old Irish ways in a farm with churns, turf and genuine human
warm. Now, in this time of Christmas, when you recall your kins and friends we want to send you a message of peace and cheer.
Please kiss your parents as if we were there. We wish you and your parents a truly happy Christmas and a New Year plenty of
peace, love, health and sponsors for your website……….From Paco, Amparo, Gracia and Nuria (in Spain) 24th
