My great grandfather was Matthew Keane, born June 1840, married to an Anne Quinlivan, ran a general store in Ennis and lived either in Ennis or Tulla, moved to New York in 1894. Their children baptised in Tulla church, records having been seen by an older relative on mine. Move to NYC dictated, according to family lore, to his position as an activist who partook of the No-Sales-to-British policy.
