Searching for Gorman's

jasmyth's picture

I am searching for information regarding the Henry Gorman family. He was born in 1830, and married Eliza Gilmor. Henry died in 1907. Their daughter, Annetta, was my great-grandmother. There were also 5 or 6 sons (Henry, Frederick, William, David, Joseph). Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I have a dna link to a Jerry O'Driscoll from Skeaf, a dairy farmer.

I am keen to find out more about my O'Driscoll people who were in Rineen, or Forenaght, near Castlehaven and wonder how to make contact with any existing people in the Skeaf area.

I also have strong Hay, Hea or Hayes dna and wonder if this is a local name in this area?


The last of the Driscoll's in Rineen were the children of a Jeremiah Driscoll and Bridget McDonnell, John and Ellen Driscoll (siblings) who died and were buried in Clonakilty.

My Great-Grandmother Margaret Fahey emigrated to the U.S. when she was 18. She was born in Kilkerrin, County Galway in 1895.

When my uncle Joel visited in 1993 he went to the church where she was baptized (Kilkerrin) and visited the graves of some of her siblings. She had a brother, Michael, and two sisters Katherine (Katie) and Bridget (all dead).

John Tierney

We know that our John Tierney is from Templemore Tipperary and moved to Quebec in 1828. He married Anne Brassil. We don't know if he married in Ireland and we do not have any information about him in Ireland.  My guess is that he would have been born in the late 1700's or early 1800's.  Any information that is available would be greatly appreciated. I have been unsuccessful so far to find him or his family in Ireland for the last 9 years.  Thanks so.much.

Looking for information on Great Grandfather Edward Walsh

My name is Stephen Walsh, originally from Lancashire but currently living in the south of England.

I am looking for information on my Great Grandfather, Edward Walsh, a tailor who was born around 1860-1862. I’m told he was from Ring.

The story goes that he emigrated along with a brother whose name is unknown. We think they went to Australia but may be wrong.  Edward returned to Ireland but the brother remained.
