John Tracey
I am looking for relatives of my great grandfather, John Tracey born Mayo or Galway about 1853. His fathers name was Lawrence Tracey or Treacy and he was a mason. John Tracey was a miner who moved to England and then America. Married Sarah Duffy in 1877 in Durham, England where he was a coal miner at the Shotton Colliery. His father was Lawrence Tracey (a mason), deceased at the time of the marriage in 1877.
They are both listed as natives of Ireland in the 1881 census. Sarah's father was Daniel Duffy and Mother was Rose Ann Roddey both natives of Ireland. John Tracey's father was Lawrence Tracey deceased in 1877. They were coal miners and masons by trade. Emigrated in 1882. Any information would be great. He perhaps had a relative named Thomas Francis Treacy (1881 British Census for Mayo?) born about 1849. Any help from Tracey's in the area would be appreciated.

John Tracy and Margaret Leonard

Looking for information on my great-great grandparents, John and Margaret Leonard Tracy. Their family information is as follows:
Husband: John Tracy, born @1830 in Galway Bay, Galway, Ireland. Died January, 1892, in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio.
Married Margaret Leonard in 1876. Born in 1849. Died 17 Mar, 1931.
Children: (all born in in Milton, Wood County, Ohio)
1. John: b. 2 Jan 1877; d. 29 Aug 1942 in Muncie, Delaware County, Indiana; married Rhoda Blanche Standiford around 1900 in Findlay, Hancock County, Ohio. (My ggrandparents)
2. Charles Richard: b. 1878; d. 1942. Married Marie Flanagan.
3. Peter Tracy: b. 1880; d. 1925. Married Buelah.
4. James Tracy: b. 1882; died 1952 in Muncie. Married Katherine "Katie" Wood.
5. William Tracy: b. 1886; d. 1966. Married Mary Mayme Carroll
6. Stephen Tracy: b. 1888; d. 1896
7. Patrick Tracy: b. 7 Jul, 1890; d. 1961. Married Margaret.
Now the story goes like this. John was the seventh son of a John Tracy. His family came to America during the potato famine. Being the youngest, they thought John too young to come and planned to leave him in Ireland with family and send for him later. John snuck aboard ship and came with his family anyway. John named his seven sons after himself and his seven brothers.
Anyone have any more info on our lineage?

Margaret Tracy & Francis Cusack

Am researching the origins of my grandfather, Denis J. Cusack, born 1852, migrated to NYC 10/1867. Father Francis Cusack, mother Margaret Tracy. Have record of christening from E. Galway Heritage center, Woodfords showing two sisters and one brother but no record of Denis of his father mother as being born there. Records indicate Ballygar residence. Have also tried Roscommon - no luck! Am wondering if there might be any remaining Cusacks in Ballygar who might be relatives of same family and who did not migrate. Any suggestions as to how one might access a directory for Ballygar? Further research through either E. Galway or Roscommon does not seem feasible. Denis migrated to NYC on "Erin" 10/1867. Thank you very much! Contact: Charles Cusack

The Story Of The Powers-Tracys'-Garveys'-Mannix http://jbarry.tripod.com/powersstory.html and http://jbarry.tripod.com/updates.html

Thomas Tracy was born in County Galway, Ireland. He came to America August 25, 1848 through the port of Boston. He moved to Milford about 1850 and was a farmer. At the time of his death in 1905 he was a large property owner and "familiar figure on the Milford Streets." Thomas became a United States citizen on October 22, 1858. He died in Milford hospital after being ill for two weeks. Prior to this, he was in good health and "was able to be on the streets daily."


In the 1920 census, Martin Tracy stated that he was born in Ireland, came to the US in 1850 and became a citizen in 1855. No record of this proves this to be true. Records show that he was actually born in Milford, Massachusetts to Thomas and Magaret (Hardiman) on November 6, 1849. His siblings, besides John B., the future lawyer and Mayor of Taunton who was born in 1868, where; Patrick b. 1851, Thomas b. 1853, Bridget b. 1854, Winifred b. April 1860, and Magaret b. 1862. All were born in Milford. Magaret would marry a man named Pierce and life in Fall Rivers.

Thomas Tracy became a citizen about 1856 He was born in Ireland in August about the year 1826. His father was Thomas but his mother's name is unknown. Unlike his sons, who would become professionals, Thomas earned his living as a "woodsawyer" and owned 800 dollars worth of land in 1880. By 1900 he was living alone in Milford and died from senility and pleurisy on November 30, 1905. Magaret (Hardiman) Tracy was also born about 1826 in Ireland. She would die June 11, 1875 at the age of 47 from rheumatic fever. They are buried together in St. Mary's Cemetery in Milford.

TRACEY roots from Manchester

Greetings! I am a new subscriber trying to find TRACEY family information. I can't trace back very far. I know that my grandfather, Bernard TRACEY, was born around 1887 in Manchester (his parents were Thomas Edward TRACEY and Mary ROURKE). Bernard had at least two siblings, Blanche TRACEY and Bert TRACEY.

Bert is interesting and I am including this information in the hope that it will jar somebody's memory. He worked with Laurel & Hardy in their early Manchester days (early 1900s?), before they became stars at Hal Roach studios in the U.S. We also have some funny old photos of Bert TRACEY directing silent movies. Would anyone out there know anything about him?

My grandfather, Bernard TRACEY, served in the U.S. Army during WWI, got married in 1920 and moved to Canada, where he is responsible (or at least partly responsible) for an amazing number of Canadians, mostly in the Sarnia, Ontario area.

I would be so grateful for any information you can give me. Regards -

William Tracey and Sarah Blake, Abbeyknockmoy Parish

At the time of the Griffiths Valuation (1856 for Galway), they were living in the townland of Lissaniska in the parish of Abbeyknockmoy in eastern County Galway. Their known children were:
Mary (bapt 14 Sep 1823) = Michael Coffey (my G-grandparents)
Bridget (bapt 01 Jul 1826)
John (bapt 22 Feb 1829)
Margaret (bapt 03 May 1832)
Mary and her husband Michael emigrated in 1884 to Boston with their 14 year old daughter Bridget Coffey. Their daughter Mary emigrated to Boston in 1880 and married Geoffrey Murphy (born in Watree, Gowran, Kilkenny) in 1887. Does any of this Tracey material look familiar to anyone?

Steve B Treacy

The late Steve B Treacy 16 November 2006


The club and parish are deeply saddened by the death of our club president Steve B. Treacy. Steve was probably the greatest clubman in the history of the club and his death will leave a void which will never be filled in Abbeyknockmoy. Steve was a dedicated follower of Abbey and Galway hurling who put his life and soul into the club at all times. Hurling in the parish is all the poorer for his death.


Steve B played with the club throughout the 1960s and 1970s, winning North Board championships in 1960s, 61, 62 and 68. He was also a member of the 1971 Intermediate team which won the county final and made the breakthrough to senior hurling for the first time, a feat of which he was immensely proud. He acted as manager and selector of various teams throughout the 1970s, resulting in a Junior Championship in 1977. As manager of our Intermediate team in the early 1980s, he instilled great interest in the team which unfortunately lost numerous county semi-finals. Nevertheless, his hard work and dedication laid the foundations for the subsequent Intermediate win in 1985 and senior win in 1988.


Steve B acted as a selector with our senior and intermediate teams and his continued enthusiasm for hurling was appreciated by his fellow selectors and players. In 2006 he was manager of the junior team which reached a county quarter-final. The size of the Junior panel he assembled was testament to the preparation he put into managing the teams. As any of the players will maintain, the amount of phone calls he made and text messages he sent during the year informing players of training and matches were incredible and while all of this was voluntary, Steve B would never have it any other way. He served as chairman, secretary and treasurer of the club on numerous occasions and was our current club president and finance officer. He was a driving force in the club throughout the years and his abilities as a fund-raiser were terrific. Steve B rarely missed any club match, under-age or adult, and he was extremely popular and well liked by all club players young and old. Indeed this was probably his greatest quality as a man, his ability to easily get along with anyone. Steve B was also a fanatical Galway hurling supporter and he rarely missed a match any Galway team were involved in.


His death is a huge loss to his family and Abbeyknockmoy Hurling Club. Many stories will be told about Steve B in the future and they will all be good ones. He had a positive impact on everyone in Abbey and he will never be forgotten. We sympathise with his sons, Stephen and Jarlath, daughters Bernadine, Jacqueline and Stephanie, his brother Paddy, sisters Evelyn, Mary, Celia and Freda, and finally his partner Ann.

Philip Anthony Treacy, b. 26 May 1967 Ballinasloe, Co. Galway, son of the late James Vincent Treacy and Katie Agnes Treacy. His parents owned a baker’s shop in Ahascragh, Co. Galway.

Philip began studying fashion in Dublin at the National College of Art & Design in 1985. He was more interested in making the hat than the outfit. This coincided with him winning, in 1988, a place on the Royal College of Art’s MA course. At the time the RCA was planning to establish a hat course and his arrival confirmed that they were right to do so. A star pupil from the outset, he soon gained the attention of the late great style icon, Isabella Blow. Their meeting was subsequently to become the subject of an exhibition at the Design Museum, ‘When Philip Met Isabella’. He graduated in 1990 and set up his own business in the basement of Isabella and her husband Detmar Blow’s home.

Philip won the British Accessory Designer of the Year ‘Oscar’ in 1991, 1992 and 1993, and then again in 1996 and 1997. Irish Fashion Oscar 1992. Haut Couture Paris 2000.

He has designed hats for Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, Valentino, Versace, Pucci, Alexander McQueen and most recently Ralph Lauren. In 2000, he made millinery history by staging his ‘Orchid’ collection of haute couture hats in Paris.

Philip heads an international company which sells accessories all over the world. His design oeuvre has expanded to include handbags, gloves, a chair for Habitat and a sportswear line for Umbro.

He has just completed the interiors for the G Hotel in Galway, west of Ireland and will soon begin work on the interior design of a new hotel in London’s Bow Street.

On the 19th of November 2007, at 40 years of age, he was awarded an honorary OBE for services to the British fashion industry by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall at a ceremony in Clarence House. The Duchess is one of his most loyal customers and she wore one of his creations a metallic feathered ‘head-dress’ for her wedding in 2005.

Martin Treacy, 28 years, b. Athen Rye, Ireland, Arrival Date: 24 May 1914 Vancouver, British Columbia


My father was Michael Treacy who was born in Athenry 3rd January 1921. Apparently his mother [Bridget or Beatrice] died when he was very young and also his father [James?] was apparently shot dead in around 1922 in the Athenry area by the local police/army because of being out during a curfew. He was brought up by his grandmother, along with his sister Maureen who I think was very close to his age. My father moved to England in about 1938 and eventually settled in the Whitehaven, Egremont area of Cumbria. He married my mother Kathleen Abernethy in Whitehaven in 1951.He died in Birmingham [England] in 1980. If anyone thinks they may have known him or his family in Athenry in those days please let me know, as I know so little about his life in Ireland or of any relatives over there. Thank you.

Eddie Treacy

April 03, 2008

The Late Eddie Treacy. The sudden and untimely death recently of Eddie Treacy in Boston was a great shock and brought great sadness to all who knew him, and once again our heartfelt sympathy to his family. Eddie was a prominent underage hurler for Athenry in the late 1980's and earlt 90's. A prominent forward on the under 14 team which reached the 1988 County Final, and in 1994 Eddie as a member of the Athenry Under-21 County Champions. In between he made his mark with Athenry Vocational School being a key player when the school won their first All-Irelands Vocational Schools senior hurling title in 1991. Eddie also enjoyed football success in the school and captained one team to a Connacht title. When he went to Boston, Eddie soon became involved with the Fr Tom Burke's club and made a big contribution both as a player and hurling coach. Here in Athenry his brothers Gerry, Michael, and Raymond have been prominent and successful with a variety of Athenry teams, and are still representing their club as keenly as ever. Apart from sporting activities, Eddie was a very popular young man who had a friendly smile for all people he met. He will be remembered with fondness.

Deputy Noel Treacy has been brought in from the cold after he lost his junior ministry after last May's election. He will chair the committee on the Good Friday Agreement a position worth €20,000. Deputy Treacy said he is honoured to have been appointed chair of this committee. "This committee has been established by An Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern TD, to oversee any issues arising from Ireland's role as a signatory to the Good Friday Agreement. I have maintained a very strong interest in the affairs of the North throughout my 25 years unbroken service as a Dáil Deputy and I am honoured to be heading up this important Committee."


It has been stated that Noel Treacy was not a ‘fan’ of Bertie Ahern.









Celebration of Jackie Treacy and the late Pauline Treacy at the Rugby Club on Saturday 18th February


Jackie Treacy has retired as Bar Manager and Committee member after 40 years of dedicated service to the Club. Jackie is known far and wide for the great welcome he has provided to all members, players and visitors to the Club. We would like you to share in the celebration of one of the great volunteers in Ballinasloe rugby.


On that date also we are honouring the late Pauline Treacy. Like Jackie she was at the centre of our Club for 40 years. To many, she was the heart of the Club. To honour Pauline’s contribution we are dedicating the new dressing rooms to her memory. A commemorative plaque will be unveiled at the dressing rooms to mark the occasion.

This shop was on Kilkerrin Road Glenamaddy. His son Sean [see Galway City] was a Landlord in London and I wonder is that the same Sean Treacy in you 50's picture. He (Sean) wrote a book called The Smell of Broken Glass". Tom was a very kind neighbour and friend, his wife was a school teacher in the village. Tom fixed and sold bikes, he also sold batteries radios and cigs. He had a glass cabinet on the counter where he sold mouth organs and penny whistles from. If there is a heaven he has the same shop there as he would have gone directly. I served mass as an alter boy at his funeral. I would love to have a copy original file of this as it would be a beautiful picture for my house in the UK of happy childhood memories.

alias archie 64 months ago

Thank you Sean for your touching tribute. Tom taught me how to ride a bike during one of my summer holidays home and he used to lend me his wife's bike to get around. You are right in the connection you make between Tom and Sean. Sean later went on to manage The Queen's Elm after the Finches, and I have commented on his tenure there at : www.flickr.com/photos/alias-archie/3994010248/


Treacys of Glenamaddy [Glennamaddy]

Treacy family from Lisheenaheilta [Lisheennaheltia], Glenamaddy area. Treacy's originally from Woodfield, Rush possibly originally from Carramana. Supposedly a Comer married a Treacy

Thomas Treacy (from Woodfield) married Bridget Rush they had the following children

Thomas b. 1884,

Mary b. 1886, went to and stayed in Boston. Married William Mullin

John b. 1887, went to Boston but returned to Glenamaddy area

Helen b. 1889, went to and stayed in Boston. Married William Lester

Michael b. 1891, joined US Navy died 1918 in Boston

Thomas b. 1896, married Nora Canny remained in Lisheenaheltia

Bridget b. 1896, married Peter Casby stayed in Middletown and then Glenamaddy

Patrick b. 1899, possibly went to Australia

Helen was my grandmother. Honoria Treacy b. April 6, 1889 to James Treacy and Ellen Treacy (Higgins?) in Derrooghs District of Glenamaddy. Catherine b. June 14, 1889 to Patrick Treacy and Mary Treacy (Keeffe) in Kietallagh? District of Glenamaddy. If either of these belong to you let me know and I will send you the birth certificate. I was looking for my grandmother Helen Treacy b. 1889 and these were the two listed. I got them thinking maybe her name was changed or something. The local church is St. Patrick Church in Glenamaddy. There is a website www.glenamaddy.net. There is a link to the church and some good information about the town.

Good Luck. Patti in Boston

Patti Matthews patti93@comcast.net 27 June 2005

Hi Patti, I'm replying to an old post so I'm not sure if you'll get this. Anyway I hope you do - Thomas Treacy (son of Thomas Treacy and Bridget Rushe) from Lisheenaheilta was my maternal grandfather. My father's family (Slattery) are also from Lisheen. I recently asked my mother (born Ellen Treacy, always known as Eileen) about her father's brothers and sisters - she knew that many of them emigrated to the Boston area, and gave this list to the best of her recollections:
John - emigrated to America
Patrick - emigrated to Manchester England
Michael (who my mom thought was the eldest) - emigrated to America
Thomas - my grandfather, died in Lisheen in 1964, had 10 surviving children, nearly all of whom emigrated to England shortly after the war
Mary - emigrated to America
Nellie - emigrated to America - I'm guessing this is Helen your grandmother?
Bridget - stayed in Ireland
I'm trying to work back a generation or two further back, as I'm interested in finding out what happened to these families during the famine. I'm hoping to take a trip later this year to look through the parish records for Boyounagh, but I'd love to get any other info you might have on your grandmother's aunts/uncles or grandparents.

Thanks and hope to hear from you, Mark Slattery (Glasgow, Scotland) markslatt 23 Jun 2007

Mark, I am so excited reading your post. I have been in contact with Treacy families in the Lisheen/Glenamaddy area in the past but they were always a different Treacy family. I do have some information from baptismal and birth records I got when I was in Ireland and I will be glad to send you everything I have.
John did come to Boston but went back to Glenamaddy with his wife and children.
Patrick I don't know very much about.
Thomas of course you know about
Michael joined the US Navy and died here in Chelsea Mass. at the Naval Hospital of pneumonia
Mary was the first to come to Boston, she married but had no children
Nellie (Helen) is indeed my grandmother and she came to Boston, returned to Ireland and then came back and married. My daughter is named Tracey after my grandmother. Bridget married a Casby and stayed in the Glenamaddy area. Most of her children came to Boston. Noreen Casby has given me some of the information I have. Does your mom have a brother that still lives in the Glenamaddy area? I think, a few years back, my father met a Willie? Treacy who came over to visit Noreen Casby. I will get together whatever information I have and send it to you.

History of St. Gabriels Hurling Club, London - Founded 1961 by P.J. Noone

To write about the foundation of St Gabriels hurling club I first have to describe the house where the idea was born and discussed - 64 St. Margarets Road, Kensal Green. It was a house of hurlers, musicians and visitors every night, just like a home from home. This house was owned by Martin Treacy and his wife Bridie. They were both very keen on music and hurling and were from Cappatagle, Co. Galway. There were six lodgers in full board for £2.10s.0.d per week. Pete Crehan R.I.P from Cappatagle, Tom Malone R.I.P from Kilconnell, Sean Malone R.I.P (Toms brother), Raymond Roland R.I.P from Craugwell, Michael Greally from Oranmore Maree and myself P.J. Noone from Cappatagle. It was here sitting by the fire on a winters night that we first talked about forming our own hurling club. The four people who were responsible for its foundations were Packie Grealish (Carnmore), Marty Treacy (Cappatagle), Paddy Malone (Kilconnell) and myself P.J. Noone (Cappatagle) – all Galway men !…

Set Dancing News Old news and reviews - Volume 4 - 1999

That's what life is all about

Dear Bill

I teach set dancing for the past fifteen years and my husband is Paddy Treacy, the well known flute player from Galway. He comes from Cappatagle, a few miles west of Ballinasloe. A lot of good musicians came from there. When Paddy moved to Dublin he went to the Pipers Club in Thomas Street where he met Leo Rowsome, Willie Clancy, Bobby Casey, Séan Seery, Kathleen Harrington, Sonny Brogan, John Joe Gannon, Paddy O'Brien and lots more.

He joined the Kincora Ceili Band and J J Gannon and Bobby Casey. They played all over the country and would be away every Sunday night. During this period he played in the Oireachtas flute competition representing the Pipers Club. He got first three times and in 1956 he won the Oireachtas Gold Medal receiving full marks which meant he couldn't enter any more. He won first in the first and second Fleadhs. He gave up playing with the Kincora as we had been married by then and had a young family and Paddy didn't want to be away from home.

A few years later Paddy O'Brien returned from America and started the Lough Gowna Ceili Band so Paddy was asked to join. They broadcast regularly and played in the Oireachtas band competition and won three times. About fifteen years ago he started the Sheelin Ceili Band with Seamus Meehan, Phil McMahon, F De Bruen and A Vaughan, Paddy playing the C melody sax as well as the flute. He packed up the band a year ago and just plays for set dancers in the Merchant Bar every Wednesday. He has been there for the past eleven years. You might think that was near the end of the music. No way, we have an open house with every flute player in Dublin coming to play music. Great fun, lovely friends and that's what life is all about. Of course Paddy being from Galway he has been set dancing since he was a kid and enjoys coming to my classes and ceili with me. We have a wonderful life and wonderful friends thanks to Paddy's music and being involved in set dancing. I am enclosing a photo of Paddy taken last Christmas. Hope you find this of some interest.

Yours sincerely,

Kaye Treacy, Terenure, Dublin

Boston Tracey family from Galway

I'm searching for a set of Tracey siblings who emigrated from Galway, Ireland to the Boston area in the early 1900s. Possible names are Daniel, Patrick, and John. They changed the spelling of their surname from Treacy to Tracey when they came to the US. I want to determine whether or not our James Tracey/Treacy is also a sibling of this family. Our James was a US marine (WW1 & WW2) who eventually settled in New Jersey, but talked of having siblings in Boston. Most likely, James is of the Treacy family from Cornamona, Galway listed in the 1901 Irish Census. Parents were Thomas Treacy and Katherine Butler. Siblings Patrick, Daniel, Mary, Bridget, and Elizabeth are all found to have emigrated to Boston, as well as James. In Boston, they spell their surname as Tracy or Tracey.

Looking for my ancestors.

My great grandfather was Michael Connolly and he was born in 1831 approx in Strongfort Craughwell. He married Mary Raftery from Garracloone Craughwell on 07-02-1860. Her parents were Patrick Raftery and Ellenora Flemming. I would like to who their parents were and what siblings they had.

I would also like to know about my great grand aunt. She was Honoria Connolly from Strongfort, Craughwell. She married James Tracy on 10-02-1852. He may have been from Coolraugh, Ganty or Craughwell His father may have been either Michael or Peter

On the History and Antiquities of the Parish of Dunmore, in the Baronies of Dunmore & Ballymoe, Co. Galway by the Rev. J. Neiry

Journal of the Galway Archaeological & Historical Society

ii. The Ordnance Survey Letters

J. O'Donovan to Geo. A. Larcom

Of the Parish of Dunmore Tuam, Aug., 30th. 1838

Situation: This parish is bounded on the north by the county of Roscommon and the parish of 'Teampull a tochum' (Templetogher) in this county: on the east by the parish of Bweenaunagh (buidheanach) (Boyounagh) and Cloonbern (Clonbern): on the south by Cloonbern and the parish of Tuam in which a part of it is isolated: and on the west by the parish of Addragoole.

Name: In the Ancient Irish Annals, this place is called 'Dunmor,' signifying large 'Dun' or earthen fort: which is the true name, though present tradition interprets it as if it were written 'Dun Moire,' "the Dun of Moira," daughter of the great navigator Manannan.

History: Tradition says that this place took its name from an earthen fort rected by 'More' the daughter of 'Manannan,' with which a large castle was afterwards erected immediately after the English invasion of 'Haiste,' a distinguished Chieftan of the Conquest, the ancestor of the present people called 'Hosty,' now numerous in this part of the country. We have, ‘now’, no historical authority to prove when or by whom this castle of Dunmore was erected, but the tradition is vivid and I think true. It has been preserved by Donnell Treacy, who lives at the old Castle, from the lips of the poet Cormac O'Coman, who lived to the age of 110 and who was the living 'Fintan' (fountain) of the history of Connaught in his time.

Dr. O'Connor states in the Stowe catalogue that the Annals of Connaught are the best history for the Castles of Connaught. Do they mention this Castle of Dunmore (in Conmaice Kinel Dubhain - (modernised Divaney, Dwane and Divine, still in use) which was in later times called Dun Mor Fheorais?

The tradition preserved by old Treacey (note: and preserved by Tommie Treacey, grand-nephew of Donal according to Rev. Neary), from the mouth of the poet O'Coman, is that the noble 'Haiste' (Hosty Merrick was killed in 1272, 'Annals of Lough Cé', and buried at Annaghboggan near Lake Beltra, Burrishoole), the son of Membric, a distinguished warrior of the Welsh nation, commenced erecting a castle a short distance to the west of where Dunmore Castle now stands, but that the fairy who presides over the place, Mor ni Mananain, not wishing that he should erect his fortress there, destroyed by night as much as his masons had erected by day, and that she continued to do so for several nights until Haiste consulted a Magician, who told him that Mor-Ny-Mhanannain did not wish him to place his fortress there, but that she would be willing to allow him erect it on the site of her own fort, and Hasty, taking the advice of the Sage, and seeing the old 'Dun' a favourable position, immediately commenced to build there, and More, being delighted to view so lofty a pile towering over the humble mounds of her ancient fortress, suffered no fairy to interrupt the work.

Hosty was not long in the quiet possession of this Castle when Bermingham came hither from the north, where he was after gaining a great victory, and drove him out of it partly by force and partly by treachery ; and his descendants who assumed the name of Mac-orish, maintained possession of it until the wars of Ireland, when Col. Hoath drove them out. This is all that tradition remembers of this fortress.

The Castle stands on a small hill over a rivulet about a quarter mile to the west of the little town of Dunmore. The hill seems to have been originally crowned with an earthen 'Dun', from which the name, but it is now so effaced that no idea can be drawn as to the extent or character. The entire hill was enclosed by a strong wall now almost entirely destroyed, some of it scattered about in massy fragments, and some tumbled in the rivulet.

The Castle itself is a square building, measuring on the inside 45 feet in length and 27 in breadth, and, as well as I could judge by the eye, 60 in height. Walls 7 ft. thick. It had three lofts, as appears from the windows and the holes for joists. It certainly does not appear to be the fabric erected by Hosty-Mac-Membric. The Four Masters have collected the following Annals of this place, from which it appears that it was an ancient Irish Military station before the arrival of the Anglo-Norman and Welsh families.

"1133, Cormac MacCarthy and Conor O'Brien led an army into Connaught and killed Cathal O'Conor Raydamna of Connaught and O'Flynn, chief of Sil-moc-lomain, and the demolished Dunmugdorn and Dun-More, and plundered a great part of the country."

"1143, Morogh O'Melaghlin, King of Meath, was most treacherously taken prisoner by King Turlogh O'Conor, and confined with other Meathian prisoners in Dun-More."

"1159, Murtagh MacLoughlin (presumptive monarch of Ireland) with the nobles of Kinel-Connell, Kinel-Owen and Oriel, marched an army into Connaught and burned Dun-More, Dun-Ciar and Dun na ngall and devastated a great part of the country."

These three notes are antecedent to the period of Hosty Mac Membric. The following are subsequent to it:

"1249, Dunmore was burned by he sons of the King of Connaught."

"1271, Matthew O'Conor was killed by the English of Dunmore."

"1284, Dunmore was burned by Fiachra O'Flynn."

"1569, Sir Henry Sydney took (the Castle of) Dunmore Mac-Feorais and Roscommon."

Archdall is wrong in making this the 'Domhnach padraig' of the Tripartite, as we shall show when treating the parish of Donagh-patrick. It is sufficient here to observe that the two names are not identical, and that Dun-more is not a corruption of Domhnach-more as Donshaughlin in Meath of Domhnach Seachlainn. ‘It is possible that it could be a corruption of it,’ but, we know from history that it is not.

We therefore come to the historical conclusion that there was no abbey at Dun-mor in Cor-maicne Kinel-Dubhain until the year 1425, when Walter de Birmingham, Lord Baron of Athenry, erected there a friary for Augustinian Eremites. The remains of this house are in the same state as described by the French artists in 1779:

"This Abbey is in the town of Dunmore, and, I believe, was much larger, but cannot be traced as the ground is level and no ruins about, it being a kind of market, the part A. on the plan is a waste, the arches built up, and B. is converted into a parish church where service is performed. Over the door C. are arms and an inscription which I copied. Said to be built by the Lords of "Athenry".

Martin Boyle

The name is the same, but I doubt this will be of any help to you. A distant cousin of mine, Martin Boyle, was a farmer on the land of my ancestrel Treacy ancestors in County Galway, near the town of Dunmore. More specifically the farm was in the township of Gortnagoyne. The Boyles had come from County Roscommon to County Galway in the 19th century, where they intermarried with the Treacys, my people.

Patrick Tracey/Treacy Dunmore

I can trace Treacys to Dunmore in the first half of the 19th century. Shoemaker Patrick Treacy married Winifred Carr of Tipperary. Patrick became a character in Trollope's ‘The Kellys and the O'Kellys’. Trollope visited Dunmore for a month, May 1841, when Win Ford was born, and got to know Pat, who in the novel is a sort of horse doctor, big and dark with a love for the liquor, who saves the heroine from poisoning. Between family memoirs and the Mormons we have come up with seven children.

Pat Tracy & Winifred/Mary Carr (Garrigh? 30/10/1833)

1. Thomas Tracey b. circa 1829, Dunmore, joined British Army as drummer in infantry, died of TB age 22, buried Dunmore.

2. Patrick b. before October 1833 (or 1831), Dunmore, married March 2, 1845, Dunmore, to Bridget Grady, who seems to have been his landlady's daughter. Win Ford (sister below) had bad memories of British soldiers. Patrick, according to family stories, was suspected of being a Fenian organizer for Dunmore and denied it vigorously. This would have been in the 1850's and may have accounted for Win's lifelong hatred of the British.Many descendants. Mary Keogh may have thought it was nine children.

I am doing a search for my daughter's mother in law, Jean Treacy. Most of Thomas' brothers and sisters went to Newburyport, Ma. Patrick Sarsfield Treacy, the oldest, was a shoemaker. He was drowned at age 32 and is buried in Haverill, MA. His son, Hugh Sarsfield Treacy, moved to Worcester, MA, and the later family to Rhode Island and Conn.

2.2 Daniel b. c. 1849 married a Rogers and was killed by a train in Haverill, MA. [see Traceys of Enniscorthy and Newburyport]

2.3 Thomas (b. 1850 d. 1927) m. Bridget Concannon (b. 1856 d. 1942)

I am researching my family history and am trying to find more information on a Patrick Tracey/Treacy. All I know is that Patrick (spelling might be different) was a shoemaker, probably from Dunmore in County Galway, and that he had a son by the name of Thomas Tracey. Thomas Tracey was born in 1850 and died in 1927. He was also a shoemaker and married Briged Concannon (1856-June 18 1942). They immigrated to Boston, MA but returned to Dunmore after 2 of their children died in America. My great grandfather, Denis Tracey, was the son of Thomas Tracey and immigrated finally to the United States and settled in Elizabeth, NJ. If anybody knows any info on Patrick Tracey or Thomas Tracey, please let me know. Ryan Tracey

I am looking for information on a Bridgid or Bridget Concannon from Ireland that was born in 1856. She married a Thomas Treacy in the 1880s and immigrated to the Boston area. She had two sons in America (Patrick, who died; and Thomas). After the death of Patrick, they went back to Dunmore County, Galway, Ireland and settled onto a property called Castlefarm. Other sons they had include Dan Treacy (b 1887), Patrick Treacy (b 1891), Dennis Treacy (b 1893) and Joseph Treacy (b 1898) and a daughter named Bridgid Tracey (b 1897). Bridgid Concannon Treacy died on June 18, 1942. If anybody has any information about her parents or sibilings, please let me know!! Sandra Tracy 20th Nov 2002 Sandra.Tracy@fao.org tracey9860@attbi.com

I am looking for information on Bridget Concannon, she married my uncle Thomas Treacy. She was born in 31st January 1856. She had a brother John, that I know for sure, he is buried in Dunmore. She is buried in Dunmore in the family plot and her brother John is buried in the same graveyard with his wife and 2 daughters. My mother was just buried in Dunmore this past January. The name Julia Ryan is very familiar, I remember my mother saying that name. I wonder if they are connected. email me at bridgetreacy@hotmail.ca

On July 1, 1934, Mr. Tracey was shot in the abdomen and another patrolman was killed in a gun battle with a crazed man in Delaware St. Mr. Tracey was a popular and respected patrolman. Longtime residents of the Elizabethport section recall that he knew almost everyone on his beat and feared no one. After he retired, Mr. Tracey often walked his old beat, renewing friendships in the area. At the time of his death he was employed as a safety man by the Public Service Electric and Gas Co. Mr. Tracey was a communicant of St Patrick's Church and a member of its Holy Name Society. He also was affiliated with Elizabeth Council 253, Knights of Columbus, and Elizabeth Local 4, PBA.

Known as ‘Big Hughie’ His grandparents were Pat T and Win Carr, making him a nephew of my great grandmother. There is an LDS record of a Tom T b 1865 to Pat T and Catherine Grady, if I remember correctly, and I need clarification as to whether this is the same family, clerical error, or what. Hughie's brother Tom was b in 1850. Big Hughie was an athlete who boxed John L Sullivan in an exhibition match. In Montreal he married and divorced Elizabeth Clark, no children. Obit from the Elizabeth Daily Journal, October 9, 1923: Hugh Tracey

“Hugh Tracey, 60 years old, of 309 Court Street, died yesterday in the Alexian Brothers Hospital three hours after being stricken with heart disease in the yard of the Durant Motor Company, where he was employed as a special policeman. He was a native of Ireland, and came to this city from Montreal several years ago. He made his home with a nephew, Daniel Tracey, of 309 Court Street. Previous to entering the employ of the Durant Motor Company, he was employed by the C.R.R. as a special policeman. He was a communicant of St. Patrick's, and of Elizabeth Council No. 233? K of C. In his younger days he was a member of the Montreal Athletic Club, where he gained a reputation as a champion shot putter.

He is survived by a sister, Mrs. Mary Walsh, of Boston, a brother, Thomas Tracey, living in Ireland, and three nephews, all of Elizabeth.”

He was buried in Mt Olivet, next to the Newark Airport. His sister Mary was famous for giving passenger money to Dunmore girls so they could come to America where she helped them find jobs. Once she had paid for a niece to come, but the girl chickened out at the "wake" and refused to go. Mary Morley took her place, came to America, and married Mary Walsh's nephew Dennis , brother of Daniel above, whom I have already mentioned.

2.8 Denis b. 7th April 1867

2.9 Delia. "Wicked Aunt Delia" was so called because she married a ‘Brit’ named Patrick Ryan, RIC in July 1879. Ryan and had at least 2 sons. Their Catholic cousins weren't allowed to play with them. When her brother Tom was dying, she took care of him and inherited his property, cutting out his daughter Bridget who was stuck in America.

Now for the saga of Denis the Ne'er-Do-Well. He was born in Dunmore about Nov 23, 1838, of Patrick Treacy and Mary (sic) Carr. Should be Winifred. He had an annoying habit of using his sister's birthdate and made himself 4 years younger. When next heard of, he was arriving at Castlegarden, a steerage passenger on the SS Louisiana from Liverpool, on 12 June, 1863. On the same ship but not related were the Irish Tracys: Hen, 35, m laborer; wife Eliza, 30; children, Mary, 2; and Hen, infant. SS City of Limerick arrived June 13 carrying Edwin Treacy, 25, laborer; Mary, 18, spinster; and Martin, 20, servant. Denis spent 2 days in NYC with no job, housing or food. On June 14, he enlisted as a landsman in the Union Navy and eventually served on the USS sloop Pawnee which was part of the effort to blockade the South. In the Battle of Stone Creek SC, he was shot in the leg and fell into a chain locker, giving him permanent rib and chest problems on the right side. On July 6, 1864 he obtained an honorable discharge, $29 in prize money, and a deed to government land in Michigan. Denis had had it with the US and wanted to go back to Dunmore. His bad luck continued when his ship was wrecked and he lost his money and deed. Stranded, he changed his occupation from shoemaker to Great Lakes sailor, living in Ontario til he moved to Montreal in 1868. His last career was as a grocer. In 1891 he applied for and received a $10 a month pension. In 1905 he took part in a Civil War soldiers' reunion, and died September 10, 1906 in Montreal, leaving a large family. He kept in touch with his family, including sister Win Ford in New Jersey, and his brother Pat's son Big Hughie, who moved to Montreal for a while. M Darcy Mavis Darcy

Denis, brother above, was one year late on his sister's leaving Dunmore. She left March 1859 and arrived in NY from Galway May 16, 1859 on the Adelaide just before her 18th birthday. She entered as a servant and claimed to be English. Three months later she married Michael Ford August 19, 1859, Plainfield NJ. Thomas Ford, 24, and Michael Ford, 20, laborers, English, arrived New York from Galway on the Adelaide July 11, 1859. It sounds like an elopement. She died Jan. 5, 1907, Elizabeth, NJ.

Her obit from the Elizabeth Daily Journal, January 7, 1907.

“Mrs Winifred Ford, aged 64 years, died Saturday at the home of her daughter, Mrs Matthew Darcy, 142 Pine street. Mrs Ford was a resident of this city for forty years, and a communicant of St Patrick's Church. She was also a member of the Rosary Society, and of the Third Order of St Francis. She leaves one son, Michael, and one daughter, Mrs Matthew Darcy, at whose home she died. Funeral services will be held at St Patrick's Church tomorrow morning, with interment in Mount Olivet Cemetery.”

7.6 Anna b. Oct 17, 1874, married Matthew Francis Darcy Jan 17, 1900, d Sept 21, 1948, Elyria, Ohio.

My g g grandparents were Win Carr of Tipp and Pat Treacy, Dunmore shoemaker. Their youngest child Win married Mike Ford and lived in NJ. Her only surviving daughter Annie married Matt Darcy in 1900. They moved to Ohio in 1909. Their son John was my father. I've been to Dunmore once and met Mary and Margaret, Joe's nieces. M Darcy Mavis Darcy

7.7 Mary B. April 6, 1`876, died Feb 1880 of scarlet fever.

Most of the Traceys went back and forth from Canada or NJ to Ireland. I am also putting Cushing info on the Warren Cushing site and Darcy info on one by Michael Darcy. I'm sorting all papers out for the inevitable and have more than 3 wash tubs full.

The word of my late cousin Helen T contrasts with Mary's and a couple others, as the generations seemed to pile up together. Helen says her great grandfather was Patrick, married to B Grady, and son of Patrick and Win Carr. He was the older brother of Denis the Ne'er-Do-Well and My great grandmother Win Ford. They also had brothers Hugh and Thomas, but she says, no Michael. The Dunmore records list Peter Martin, who Mary K says did not exist. Thomas was the soldier who died of tb; Hugh I can't find.

I knew a lot of those Treacy family you enquire about, some in New Jersey USA , JOE lived in Dunmore when I was young, Tommy was a shoe maker, all passed away now, were related to my father, so I was told to day by a neighbour of Joe Treacy, when I enquired about my own relations, and low and behold, I find your board just now, small world if I can be of any help, just e-mail me Regards, Mary o'Dowd flaskagh 5 Aug 2004

Patrick W. Treacy

For over twenty years Patrick W. Treacy has been engaged in business for himself in Oakland, and while he has accumulated a competence, he has also won a position among the men of integrity and honesty who command a place as worthy citizens. He is a native of Ireland, his birth having occurred in County Galway; his parents, Patrick and Honor (Langan) Treacy, both died in their native land. In Ireland, Patrick W. Treacy married Miss Mary Higgins. and with her sought a new home among the more abundant opportunities of the western world. They came first to San Francisco, and thence to Oakland, this being about twenty-eight years ago. By trade he was a painter and decorator, a business which he began to follow as soon as he located perma- nently in this city. For a few years he worked for others, then in I884 established an independent business, since which time he has carried on a lucrative business. He now employs from six to eight men the year round, and for the character of his work as well as the promptness and dispatch with which orders are executed, has won an enviable reputation.

Mr. and Mrs. Treacy have eight children, all in school, namely: Nora, Mary, Helen, Eugene, Agnes, Thomas. Stephen and Wilfred. Mr. Treacy is associated fraternally with the Ancient Order of United Workmen and St. Joseph’s Benevolent Society of St. Patrick’s Parish, West Oakland, Cal.

There seem to be no records covering the others.

In the 1861 Census the family had moved to Bispham Street, Liverpool. Mathew was 40 a dealer in barrels, Win 38 seamstress, Patrick was a dock worker and lived down the street, Anthony Charles 15 (really 17), Maryanne 11, Catherine Mary 8, and Winifred 6, all born Ireland.

In 1861 Matt and Win were sharing 1 Bispham Street with 3 other families. On June 3, 1881, Win died at 67 Bevington Hill, Liverpool, of heart disease and facial neuralgia from an old facial injury, age 63. Her tombstone in Ford Catholic Cemetery reads "Winifred, Beloved Wife of Mathew Gavin, Departed This Life 3rd June 1881 Aged 65 Years, of Dunmore, Co Galway, May She Rest in Peace. This information is from Dr Anthony Carew, her descendant. Mary Keogh thinks this Win may be a sister of the Pat who married Win Carr. Tony disagreed.

Treacy Question, East Galway 24 May 2013 [see Tynagh]

I am looking for information on my Great-Grandfather Edward Treacy, born about 1830 probably in Tynagh or Killimor Galway, near Portumna. His parents were Patrick Treacy born around 1790 - 1794 in Tynagh and Mary Egan, born in 1811 in Loughrea.

He married Bridget Boland in Killimor Galway on Jan. 20, 1857. There were no parents named for either spouse, but the witnesses were John Boland and Michael Burke. I know that she died at age 67 in Derrew, Eyrecourt, Galway on 20 Jan 1907. Edward Teacy was the Informant. He died in Derrew, near Killimor in 1916.

Joe Young’s ‘Windy Waters’

The 250 feet deep spa was part of Thomas Tracey’s mineral water works and licensed premises in Mary Street at the end of the 19th century. On the death of Mr Tracey, Joe Young was appointed manager. He later married Mrs Tracey’s niece, and on the marriage, the business was signed over to Mr Young. He later acquired the Eglinton Street frontage after a law dispute with Mr John Forde (whose pub can be seen to the right of our photograph ). Notice how the tree outside the pub softens the streetscape.

Sean Treacy (1924-1986) was born in 1924 in Galway City, where his father had a small business and his mother was a head teacher. He completed his education at St Jarlath’s College, much against his will. He joined the Irish Army Corps at the age of eighteen, becoming a pilot. [link] But after five years of flying he decided to become a publican in England. His first job was a learner-barman at the Goldhawk, Shepherd’s Bush. Within a year he was managing Finch’s King’s Arms in the Fulham Road, Chelsea. He stayed there for eight years before taking the tenancy of the Queen’s Elm, further up the Fulham Road. The Queen’s Elm was patronised by many famous people in the arts in the 60’s and 70’s. His first book, A Smell of Broken Glass, was published in 1973, followed by Shay Scally and Manny Wagstaff, in 1976.


For generations one of London’s most famous watering holes was The Queen’s Elm on Fulham Road, Chelsea. The 20th century pub features in A Smell of Broken Glass, the 1973 memoir of its Galway-born landlord Sean Treacy - Laurie Lee kindly thought up the title. In Treacy’s day the walls were covered with original JAK cartoons and his collection of antique pipes. When Treacy died in 1986 the pub closed.

 Kilconickney (& Kilconieran)


Killconerin Parish is located in the middle of East Galway, five kilometres south-east of Athenry on the road to Loughrea. There is a signpost to the church on the road. It is one of the two areas named in the Books of Survey and Distribution of the seventeenth century where the Traceys held land in Ireland. In Kilconienan, there is the remains of an old church which contains two slab stones dedicated to the Traceys. From the position of these stones it may be likely that this was a Tracey family church. As such, it would be the earliest known family structure and should be of interest to all Traceys. Unfortunately, the graveyard is very overgrown and the end wall of the church now forms part of a cow shed.





The old church of Kilconieran…inserted in the wall near where the alter was is a stone with the following inscription:

“Erected by Martin Tressy, to pray for his wife Honoria alias O’Bryan and his daughter Mary deceased and the rest of his family. 1755”





On another horizontal flag below the first stone is written:

“Pray for the wife of Patrick Tressy Margo ??as who ??? who ?oved the 14th of ??? 1760”

Lickerrig School Folklore Report 1837-8 in Stanley, Cathal ed. (2000) Castles & demesnes: gleanings from Kilconieran and Clostoken.Galway.






Also in the same cemetery are the following:


“O Lord have mercy on the soul of James Tressy who dep May 1829 age 66 years erected by his wife Mary Tressy alias Donohue and their sons Pat Tressy & Thady Tressy. AD 1841?”

Also scratched on the tomestone are other deaths including “son Michael 1940”

Erected by Martin Treacy late from Montreal Canada West in memory of his parents his mother Ellen Birmingham who died November 17 1836 Also his father Thady Treacy who died December the 19th 1846 May their souls rest in peace Amen”


Mary Tressy/Treacy & Martin Keogh

My g'mother was a Marie Keogh (b19.5.1886) from Dugrane (Doogaunan) nr Loughrea. Her sisters were Winifred (b23.11.1887- think she went to New Zealand), Anne/Nancy (b25.8.1891- went to Waltham, Mass. & married a Harold Keough?), Bridget/Delia (b12.5.1897) and Eileen/Ellen (b20.11.1899- married a Finn?). Her brothers were John/Jack and Martin, who stayed in Galway & never married; Jack farmed Dugrane and Martin farmed St Clearns, Craughwell.
Their parents were Martin Keogh (bc1848) and Mary Forde (b26.6.1857 Ballynagreeve) who m'd 16.2.1885at Killeenadeema. Martin's parents were Martin K (bc1816) and Mary Tressy/Treacy? (bc1820) who lived at Carrabane.
Mary Forde's parents were John Forde (bc1815, d1869) and Honoria Callanan (bc1833, d1871) who lived at Ballynagreeve. Plenty more brothers & sisters etc.
Is anyone out there connected?

In addition to the headstones in Kilconierin that you have identified (http://www.traceyclann.com/files/Galway2.htm), two additional headstones of interest to you there may be:

- Erected by Margaret Tracy alias Fury and her son John in memory of husband Michael Tracy died 26th January 1804 aged 58.

- In memory of Edmond Trasy died 6th March 1791 aged 61 and his son Dan died 2nd July 1830 aged 66. Erected by Thady Trasy 1830.

Additionally, by way of suggestions / query, the 'Mary Tressy/Treacy & Martin Keogh' family listed under Loughrea are also from Kilconierin-Clostoken parish.

Finally, in the 1821 census, there are Tressy's in both Moyode and Rathgorgin. As you've noted they also appear in the Book of Survey and Distribution for the parish (Creggaturlough), and more signifiently, the Calender of Patent Rolls at the beginning of the seventeenth century (Kilconierin). The fact that Rathgorgin-Moyode-Kilconierin-Creggaturlough are all the one area in north-west Kilconierin can be no coincidence and means the Tracey's/Tressy's lived in this area of Kilconierin for centuries. It is also clear that they are one of three or four of the most significent families in tracing the legacy and history of Kilconierin parish though the centuries.
