I live in Western Australia and will be visiting Ireland in June of this year (2023) and will arrive in Tralee on 9th June and depart 13 June. Whilst I am in Kerry I would like to visit if at all possible, the places my 2nd Great Grandparents Thomas COSTELLO and Elizabeth HUSSEY lived before they immigrated to Australia. I do know that Elizabeth came from Knockariddane, O'Brennan Parish but I am at a loss to know exactly where Thomas originally came from. I have dna links to some of Thomas's siblings, some moved to the USA and 2 brothers stayed in Ireland, they were Cornelius COSTELLO and Maurice COSTELLO (I have information linking Cornelius to my 3rd Grt Grandparents Robert COSTELLO and Johanna SAVAGE but not Maurice. I base the link to Maurice on dna matches to Maurices descendants that are the same as my matches to Thomas's other siblings.
I have typed up and attached a summary of information I have on the Costello/Savage/Hussey/Roche families in the hope that someone can help me establish where exactly my family originated, to connect with family would be a wonderful bonus.

Hello, I also have a Roche in my tree; Hannah Roche, 1817-1886. The only information I have been able to track down is a possible Protestant baptism, and her marriage to Richard Malloy. Happy to see if there is a familial connection!
Thank you for replying. I haven't as yet, but I will fill out the form. I am going to Belfast first as I have Gunning/Wightman/Moore ancestors from Co Antrim and I will then go down to Co Kerry to see where my Costello/Savage/Hussey/Roche ancestors came from. I have done a summary of the Kerry Families, which I have attached above and I will do one for the Antrim Families as well.
I have not come across Hannah as yet, but I will keep her in mind whilst researching. My Roche's are from Knockariddane, O'Brennan Parish, Co Kerry and were Catholics. I have seen Roche's in my researching in Co Antrim though, who were Protestants, but not many.
I have done dna with Ancestry and have uploaded to My Heritage as well.
Hello from Tralee Susan. Elizabeth Hussey was my 2nd Great Aunt and if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I would be delighted to send you a invitation to view my Ancestry Tree on Ancestry.co.uk. Kindest regards Jacintha
