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?

Thomas Tracy, son of Thomas, was the first Tracy in the family line to come to America. He 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. His wife was Magaret Hardiman…

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.

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 permanently 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.

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.

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.

Patrick Tracy (b. 1815 - 1820 d. aft. 1870 New York City) m. Ann ??? Abt. 1841

In the 1850 New York City census Patrick Tracy was found living in the 14th ward, on page 134. He was listed as 30 years old, a clerk, born in Ireland. In his household was his wife Ann, 27 years old, and a daughter named Mary J. Tracy, being 2 years old, showing New York as her place of birth. In the 1860 census Patrick Treacy was listed as being 45 years old (note the difference in his age?), as shown in the 6th ward, 3rd division, page 1105, dwelling number 263, on the date of 03 July, 1860. He worked as a private watchman, born in Ireland, and his wife Ann was not found in the record, but his son Michael, and Mathew, and his daughter Mary were found. Also living with them in the 1860 census was a woman named Johanna Sweeney, 45, a servant, from Ireland also. In the 1869 New York city directory he was at 19 Mott street. Patrick was the first known relative to come to NYC. His sister Anna Tracy came over a few years later with her husband Michael John Connery, who was living at his home in 1863, at 19 Mott street. He was a witness to the Naturalization of Michael Connery his brother-in-law, Patrick being listed as living at 19 Mott street. Also Patrick's sister Anna (Johanna) Tracy's daughter Ann Elizabeth was born at the 19 Mott street address in 1863. In the 1870 census of New York City as found in the 7th ward, first district, on page 24. He was now listed as being 55 years old, now working as a tailor, worth 500.00 in personal worth, and 1000.00 in real estate, being born in Ireland. Again, his wife Ann appears, she being listed as 50, she was absent from the 1860 census. Also in the household were his son's Michael, and Mathew Tracy, and their daughter Mary. A study of Irish ship records for the port of New York shows two possible prospects for Patrick Tracy coming to America. It is still not clear whether one of these men represent our Patrick. The first was on 20 June, 1847, from Liverpool, on the ship "Pacific", it shows a Pat Tracy 28, a mechanic of Ireland, alond with a wife whose first name was not known, aged 25, and a son Mike Tracy who was listed as 3. This could be our family, or at least part of our family? The second was a Patt Tracey, 30 years old, a male laborer, from Ireland, on 08 April, 1848, from Dublin, to NYC, on the ship "James Fagan", manifest ID 2873, he came alone in steerage. This fits better with the known family information, given the probable place of birth of his daughter Mary in New York (still not proven, and only extracted from one record).

Anna Tracy (b. 1821 - 1822 Rossmore, Ballinakill Parish d. January 17, 1898 Brooklyn, New York) m. Michael John Connery Abt. 1845 in Woodford, Ballinakill Parish, Leitrim Barony, Galway, Ireland

Anna Tracy came over to New York city with her young daughter Mary Ann in Jan., 1851, as shown in the biography of her husband Michael John Connery. She was listed in this record as Anna Conroy, and she appears again this way as a widow in the 1880 census of New York city, in the household of John Mc'Namara her son-in-law, and her daughter Anna Agnes Connery. In 1868 she was listed in the New York city directory as Anna Conrey with her daughter Mary as dressmakers living at 638 6th avenue. In 1878 she was listed as Anne Conroy, widow of Michael living at 155 E. 41st street, and she was listed again in 1879 as Annie G. Conrey at this address, and she still worked as a dressmaker. In 1880 she lived at 1484 2nd avenue as shown in the census record. From 1882-1883 she appears again as Ann Conroy widow of Michael living At 1467 2nd avenue, not far from her daughter Anna Mc'Namara. She died as Ann Conroy while living at 423 Hicks street, in the 6th ward of Brooklyn, being 76 years old. She died of Gangrene, and was buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Brooklyn. Her death record stated that she was a homemaker, and that she was living in NYC for 52 years.

1. Patrick & Nancy Treacy - Ireland (Galloway?) -
2. Their son Michael Treacy married Catherine Francis (Maher) Treacy - I believe immigrated to US, settled in Louisville KY.
Michael/Catherine's children:
my grandmother, Anna Elizabeth Treacy (b. I think 1895) & her siblings are: Joseph, John (b. 1892) (who went by O'Treacy) Aloysius, James, Catherine, Kitty, Agnes. Believe they were all born in KY but could be wrong.
Then the family moves to Indiana - no idea why.

3. Anna Elizabeth Treacy (my grandmother) married Louis Boniface Riester
Their children, John (my father), Mary, Florence
4. John (my father) married Louise Childers
John and Louise had 4 children, of which I am their youngest.
If you have any info relating to this lineage, please email me at alriester@cox.net. I have more info at home with more specific dates, etc. Any info would be greatly appreciated. If you find your info somehow relates to mine, I also have pictures of some of the people from late 1800s to early 1900s.

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.

John Treacy from Glennamaddy/Woodfield

I am trying to find an Irish connection to my G.Grand father John Treacy from Woodfield, Glennamaddy. All I have is that he was married to Mary Mullen and I believe they had three daughters Bridget/ Delia-born in 1876. Nora born in 1871-and Mary born in 1873. My Grand mother was Bridget who married James Donovan here in Boston. I would appreciate any leads to the connections to Glennamaddy, Ireland. If anyone knows the name and address of a parish in glennamaddy that would help too.

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

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.

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/

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

Kilconickney & Kilconieran

Killconerin Civil 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”



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.

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.

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.
