Anne-Marie Treacy, Lecturer in Music RWD B06, Music Department, University of Wolverhampton, Gorway Road, Walsall WS1 3BD, England. a.treacy@wlv.ac.uk

Born into a musical family in Waterford, Ireland, I experienced an eclectic range of music during my formative years having attended everything from Waterford’s annual festival of Light Opera to “Spraoi”, a celebration of street music and art as well as traditional sessions of Irish music in pubs throughout Ireland. Along the way I also developed a keen interest in history. Currently I am working on French and English music c.1300-c.1450 analysing compositional style in the Old Hall Manuscript, Ms. Ivrea, and the Apt manuscript. I am also exploring issues of patronage and political commentary in the early poetry (pre- Canterbury Tales) of Geoffrey Chaucer and the music and poetry of Guillaume de Machaut including Le Remede de Fortune, and Le Jugement de Roi de Behaingne. Other interests include performance aspects of Medieval English Drama and I have worked specifically on the function of music in York 45: The Assumption of the Virgin. In addition, I have produced medieval plays for The Granary Theatre, University College Cork, including Fulgens and Lucres and Adam de la Halle’s Jeu de Robin et Marion. In addition, I am director of the University of Wolverhampton’s Early Music Ensemble, Réaltanna, which performs a repertoire of both instrumental and vocal music from the medieval and renaissance periods. Increasingly Réaltanna are also extending their repertoire to include both traditional Irish folktunes and compositions by contemporary Irish composers such as Michael McGlynn and Shaun Davey

Brendan Treacy, of Nenagh Co. Tipperary, Musician, Historian and Photographic Archivist


In 1973, Brendan Treacy decided to collect photographs and negatives to have a pictorial record of Nenagh. The likelihood is that but for his initiative so many photographic reproductions of Nenagh, of the distant and not so distant past, of its people, its occasions and events, would have been lost, never to have been brought to the surface again. Five books based on the collections of photographers Samuel J. Bernal, Kevin O'C Bernal, Lewy P. Gleeson, William J. Heaney, Tommy Lynch, Jack Ryan, Pat Stephens and others have been published. He also supplies photographs for books and journal articles.


One of the better known musicians of the time was Brendan Treacy, who was a saxophone player of great repute. Not only that: he is also an expert on the keyboard and has entertained gatherings as a solo artist. He has handed that love of music on to his son, David, who is also an organist with a great reputation.


Brendan Treacy was a former employee of North Tipperary County Council where he worked as a clerical officer and revenue collector. He has three children, Siobhan who is married and lives in Kildare, David a teacher in a secondary school in Belfast and Jean, who lived in Dublin.

Frank Tracy was born in the Liberties in Dublin in 1943. He was educated at James’ Street CBS and University College Galway from which he graduated with a B.A. in Celtic Archaeology in 1967. He has spent most of his working life in the Public Service. A keen hillwalker and lifelong member of the scout movement, he is an active scout leader in the Merchants’ Quay, Dublin scout troop. He also has a keen interest in local history and archaeology which led, among other things, to this study of the family history of Lord Massy of Duntrileague. A father of five adult children, he lives with his wife Bernie in Stillorgan, Co. Dublin.

Travelling to the parish of Killakee, in the Dublin Mountains, historian Frank Tracy toured the grounds of the Massy Estate for this recording, beginning at the beehive cottage. Lord Massy and his wife spent 35 years living here. Frank outlined the genealogy of the family and walked through the now wooded area to where the original grand house stood. He continued on to the walled garden area where he compared some 19th century photographs with its mostly wooded landscape today.

The medical profession in Cork has suffered a great loss by the death, at the early age of 38, of Dr. James J. Tracy, which occurred at his residence in Cork, on December 26th, 1901. His health had for some time caused anxiety to his friends, but no one thought the end so near.

He graduated in I890 in the Royal University, Ireland, after a distinguished career in Queen's College, Cork, after which he practised for a short period in England. On returning to Cork he was appointed to the medical staff of the Mercy Hospital, first as Surgeon, but later he resigned this appointment for that of Physician. His medical skill was of a high order, and much appreciated by his colleagues and patients. His powers of diagnosis were quite exceptional, and his treatment of difficult cases showed a highly-trained and cultured intelligence. A meeting of the medical staff of the Mercy Hospital held on December 3oth passed the following resolution:

That we wish to place on record our sense of the irreparable loss the medical staff of the hospital have sustained by the death of our esteemed colleague, Dr. James J. Tracy.

He was honorary treasurer of the Cork Medical and Surgical Society for several years, and piloted the finances of that Society through a most critical period in a manner that secured to him the admiration and confidence of the members and this Society at a specially-convened meeting held on December 30th passed the following resolution:

That we, the members of the Cork Medical and Surgical Society, have learned with extreme regret of the untimely death of our able and valued colleague, Dr. Tracy, who acted as our Treasurer for many years, and who, devoted himself with untiring zeal of this interest s of this Society, as well as to those of the profession generally.

Although in failing health, his keen interest in the matters relating to his profession never flagged. He was present and joined in the discussions at a recent meeting of the Medical Society. Dr. Tracy was unmarried. The funeral took place on Saturday, December 28th, 1901, the large attendance of his colleagues and general public testifying to the esteem in which he was held.

Rev. Jeremiah F. Trecy/Tracy (1821-1888) Pioneer Priest [see Rev Jeremiah F Trecy]

One of the earliest Catholic settlements of Nebraska was founded in Dakota County in 1855 by a group under the leadership of Reverend J. F. Tracy. It was known as Saint Patrick Settlement, and from his church of Saint John, Father Tracy attended similar colonies in Omaha, and in Nebraska City.

Rev. Jeremiah F. Tracy was born in Drogheda, County Louth, Ireland, in 1821, came to America with his parents in 1831, and grew to manhood in Lancaster, Pa, where the family settled. After finishing his studies he was principal of the high school there for a few years. During the Know Nothing riots in Philadelphia in 1843-1844, he was honoured by being appointed one of the guards to protect the churches from destruction. In 1849 he entered the Catholic school for young men at Chicago, where after hard study and close application he received minor orders from Bishop Quarters, but was stricken with pneumonia and advised by the doctors to seek a more congenial climate away from the lakes. He went to Dubuque where he was adopted by Bishop Loras and finished his studies at the old St. Bernard’s college, Table Mound, and was ordained on June 24, 1850. At that time the cholera was raging in Dubuque and the young priest remained with his Bishop all that year and part of the next, unselfishly ministering to the spiritual and physical necessities of the sick and dying. In many stricken families Father Tracy’s name was a household word, and many now holding exalted positions and living in fine homes in Dubuque and other parts of Iowa, are children for whom he provided homes when their parents were stricken down with the cholera. Many times did he and the good Bishop Loras go without food for long periods so completely was their time taken up with ministering to the wants of the sick and dying

In the fall of 1851 he was appointed pastor of Garryown, Jackson county, Iowa, a large Irish Catholic settlement, where he built the large, substantial stone church, 50 by 105 feet, which is still used by that large parish. He also established a parochial school, which is still taught by the Sisters of Charity. In June, 1855, Father Tracy and his brother John crossed the state of Iowa and the Missouri River and explored the country and selected the site for his colony, which he brought there the following year. Returning to Dubuque he tried to induce some of the settlers around there to go to Nebraska, but they evidently thought they were far enough west already. He went east to find recruits for his colony, and while pursuing this work he met much opposition, particularly from Archbishop Hughes of New York, who denounced him and his scheme to take his innocent countrymen into the wilds of the west, where they might starve or suffer other untold misfortunes. This shows how great men may be mistaken in their views, as the Archbishop was by preferring to see the Irish immigrants remain in the slums of the great cities, subject to all their contaminating influences, instead of coming west to enjoy the pure air and glorious sunshine of the prairies, to live happy and virtuous lives, while enjoying the greatest degree of material prosperity as the members of this colony certainly did. Father Tracy made a canvass in the New England states, where he secured a number of recruits and the next spring started with them for Nebraska, coming from Dubuque by wagon, fording streams and rivers, and enduring great hardships in crossing the hitherto untrodden prairies. On June 1, 1856, they crossed the Missouri River at Sioux City and on the next day reached the selected site, which he named St. Johns, about a mile and a half north and east of the present site of Jackson. There were eighteen wagons and about sixty people in all, including his single brother John. Others followed the same year and the following years the colony grew to be a large and prosperous one.

For a short time mass was celebrated in a tent, but as soon as possible a log church was erected, which was later replaced by a frame structure. After getting the church and parish well established, Father Tracy looked around for scattered Catholics wherever he could find them. In June 1857 he celebrated the first Mass in Sioux City. In 1858 he founded a church in Council Bluffs, the first one erected there for white settlers. He visited points along the Missouri River as far north as Fort Randall.

After about four years of this strenuous life, his health failed and he left St Johns in 1860, and after remaining in Sioux City for a few months went south to the diocese of Mobile and was appointed pastor at Huntsville, Ala. During the Civil War he served as chaplin in General Rosecran’s army, but did not confine his ministrations to the Federal ranks alone, crossing and recrossing the lines, wherever he found sick and dying soldiers. After the war he returned to Mobile diocese, working until 1879 when he was striken with paralysis. He was taken to the Alexian Brother's Hospital in St. Louis where he passed away nine years later, March 1888.

The old town site for which Father Tracy had great expectations is now a farm and the only indication that it had existed is the cemetery on the hill overlooking it which is still used as "the city of the dead."

John Gerard Patrick Tracey, of Belfast, Ph.D. and musician.


John “Larry” Tracey has researched Irish dialectology with the Irish & Celtic department at the School of Modern Languages at QUB.  Having completed a BA (2009) and MA (2010) in Irish & Celtic Studies, he returned in 2011/12 to undertake a doctorate. His PhD project involved exploring the native Irish Gaelic dialect of County Down in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.  Relatively little is known or has been published about this dialect of Irish.  He researched and gathered a corpus of texts from this region and era, and examined them for linguistic features which would shed light on the nature of the dialect of Down, and also reveal more about its relationship with neighbouring dialects in the theoretical Gaelic linguistic continuum.


He is also a tutor to undergraduate students in the Irish & Celtic department, and had previously worked alongside the School of Education as a research assistant.


He is also part of a musical duo called FretWear, playing contemporary blues and acoustic music

Dr. Joshua Irving Tracey, Jr.



Dr. Joshua Irving Tracey Jr. (1915-2004) of Arlington, Virginia.


A noted geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, he was recognized for pioneering studies which helped support Charles Darwin's theory on the development of atolls. In a citation for meritorious service, then-Secretary of the Interior Rogers B. Morton said, "Dr. Tracey's pioneering studies of reef limestone from drill core, coupled with related investigations, provided the first conclusive evidence supporting Darwin's classic coral-reef hypothesis. Through subsequent studies of other central and western Pacific atolls, and as co-leader of deep-sea coring expeditions, he has become a recognized authority on island and seafloor movements, geologic history, and mineral resources including island phosphates and distribution of deep-sea manganese nodules."


The son of the late Joshua and Grace Resh Tracey, Dr. Tracey was born May 5, 1915, in New Haven, Conn., where his father taught mathematics at Yale. He was educated at the Hopkins Grammar School and went on to Yale University, where he received his A.B. in physics and mathematics in 1937, his MSc. in geology in 1943, and his Ph.D. in 1950.


With the outbreak of World War II, Dr. Tracey joined the United States Geological Survey. He was sent to Alabama, Georgia and Arkansas exploring for bauxite, the ore for aluminium, which was critically needed for the war. For two years after the war, Dr. Tracey worked under Harry Ladd doing core drilling on Bikini Atoll before and after the atomic bomb tests. From 1951 to 1954, Dr. Tracey served the USGS as field party chief mapping the geology of Guam, the largest of the Mariana Islands. While on Guam, Dr. Tracey made surveying trips to Pagan, Fais and Ifaluk Atolls. During the 1960's, Dr. Tracey was involved with drilling on Midway Island in conjunction with the Department of Defense, the Atomic Energy Commission, the National Science Foundation, and Scripps Institution of Oceanography.


For several summers, Dr. Tracey did surveying of the Green River formation in Southwestern Wyoming. During the 1970's, Dr. Tracey was co-chief with George H. Sutton doing deep sea drilling in the Pacific on the Glomar Challenger, sponsored by the Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Sampling. His other research involved expeditions to Enderbury and Enowetok Islands. He served as scientific advisor with the U.S. delegation to the U.N. Seabeds Committee, which met in Geneva in 1971. He also served several years as chairman for the Geologic Names Committee.  Dr. Tracey retired from the USGS in 1985 and was given office space in the Smithsonian Museum of National History, where he continued to write for several more years and where his papers were deeded to the Archives in 2002. Among other scientific and social organizations, he was a member of Sigma Xi, Geological Society of America, American Association of Petroleum Geologists, the Explorers Club, the Cosmos Club, a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and honorary membership in the International Society for Reef Studies.


Dr. Tracey was a member of Mt. Vernon Place United Methodist Church in Washington, singing bass in the choir for over 50 years, having joined during WWII. He was a member of the Rustin Couples class in the church.


He was survived by his wife of 58 years, Frances Louise Tracey; two sons, Dan Britton Jones of Lancaster, Pa., and Douglas Irving Tracey of Flemington, N.J.; eight grandchildren; six great-grandchildren, and a sister, Mary Jane Mann of Peterborough, N.H.

26 May 1938 Riverine Herald (Echuca, Vic.)


Monsignor Treacy

The death occurred in Ireland, last Friday, of the Rt. Rev. Monsignor Treacy, of Doniliquln, who was well and favorably known In Echuca and district.

The deceased prelate left Australia a few months ago on a visit to Ireland, in the hope that the trip would improve his health, following a serious accident in Melbourne last year. The late Monsignor studied for the priesthood in Ireland, and 56 years ago he came to Australia and was stationed for practically the whole of that time in the Hay and Denlliquln districts. He was also Vicar-general In Wilcannla Diocese for some time. He also held tho very high honor of being a Prothonotary Apostolic, be stowed upon him by His Holiness The Pope.

The deceased was 84 years of ago, and he will be mourned by a very wide circle of his parishioners and members of the Protestant donominations. A man of outstanding ability, he possessed: a genial personality, and although outspoken at times ho always took a broad view of life and a sympathetic understanding for those who differed with him.

Right Rev. Monsignor William T. Treacy [error in name]

The Right Rev. Monsignor William T. Treacy, Protonotary Apostolic Vicar General of Wilcania, Australia. He was a native of Roscommon, and was educated at Summer Hill College, Athlone, and All Hallows Dublin, before his ordination in 1882. For a number of years he worked as a missionary in Goulburn and Deniliquin, New South Wales. He was appointed Vicar general of the Diocese of Wilcania in 1889, and on two occasions he was Administrator of the diocese during the absence of the Bishop. In 1902 he was made a Domestic Prelate to the Pope, and he returned home from Australia some time ago. He died on the 20th May 1938 in Dublin.

Dr Oisín Tracey, of Dublin & Perth Australia, Veterinary Surgeon and activist


Three things Dr Oisin Tracey has always loved are art, animals and science. He commenced art school but realised very quickly it wasn’t for him so he followed his other two passions to veterinary medicine.


Dr Tracey graduated in August 2016 from the University College of Dublin (UCD), Ireland. He completed elective periods in Tufts University, Boston and took the trek over to Australia to commence with Perth Vet Emergency. He is also a volunteer with Native Animal Rescue AU, a wildlife rehab centre, where he now encounters wild animals and birds of all kinds.


Australia has also brought some of Tracey’s other talents to light - namely his flair for social media. In January last year, he started his Pawsome Doctor Instagram account, and developed a following of more than 48,000.


His career goal now is to become a consultant in emergency and critical care veterinary medicine, and once he is granted his permanent residency in Australia, he plans to continue his studies through Murdoch University’s residency programme in Perth.

Patrick Otrassy/Tressy of Rosclogher, Co. Leitrim, founder of the Irish College of Valencia Spain in 1628


Estudios Sobre La Misión De Irlanda


El de Valencia lo fundó el doctor Patrick Tracy, que fue alumno del colegio de Salamanca. Tracy fue enviado en 1628 Valencia para doctorarse en teología en esa ciudad y fundar allí un colegio de irlandeses, la fecha de clausura es incierta, aunque hay viáticos para colegiales del seminario de Valencia hasta 1663. (AGS. E. 2794. Consulta del consejo de Estado, Madrid, 18 febrero 1631.)


The Irish College At Valencia (1623-1680): Historical Consequences


According to the official records the seminary college at Valencia was established in 1628 by the diocesan priest, Patrick Tracey (sometimes ‘Tressy’), a man whose achievements were comparable to those of other famous college founders, such as Christopher Cusack and Theobald Stapleton. Having said this, it is clear that Tracey was, and has remained, one of the less well-known figures. There is reason to date the Irish presence at Valencia to a slightly earlier point, as there was clearly already an Irish community in Valencia before 1628.


In all of this the key personage was, as stated above, Patrick Tracey, who was a priest of the ecclesiastical diocese of Tuam in Connacht. From 1621 he was enrolled as a student at the College at Salamanca, where he studied Theology. In 1627 he was sent by the Rector of the College at Salamanca to Valencia in order to found the seminary college there. He later obtained his doctorate at the University of Valencia. He had scarcely arrived in the city when he met his compatriots, Malachy Maher (Malaquías Meher), who had obtained his doctorate in Theology in 1621; he also met and befriended Thaddeus Cleary (‘Tadeo Clario’) and James Cleary (‘Diego Clario’), who had graduated in the Faculty of Arts in 1626. Another Irish exile, Patrick Master (‘Patricio Mestre’) also obtained his doctorate in Theology at Valencia in 1628. 


Tracey obtained the degree of Bachelor of Theology on 17 June 1628 (Jerónimo Agustín Morlá acting as his sponsor); he went on to obtain the degree of Doctor of Theology on 23 July 1629, with Francisco Cruílles acting as his sponsor. Tracey affirms unequivocally in a memorial to the King that he went on to found the seminary for Irish priests with the blessing of the Superiors of the College at Salamanca, that is: ‘having gone afterwards by order of his Superiors to the City of Valencia to establish a seminary of his nation, he did so to great satisfaction and effect.’ The foundation of a seminary for the training of diocesan priests was an innovation. Six colleges are known to have existed between 1550 and 1643, but the Irish did not figure as students in any of them. From the middle of the 16th century there existed the College of the Presentation, founded by Tomás de Villanueva, with ten scholarships for paupers. In 1668 it became a senior college. The College of the Assumption was another institution in Valencia, offering three scholarships for the natives of Valencia. The College of the Purification (1572) was a similar institution, while Juan de Ribera’s College of Corpus Christi (1594) offered six scholarships for priests and 24 for students. There was also the College of the Order of Montesa de St George (1606, Colegio de la orden de Montesa de San Jorge), and finally the College of the Holy Monarchs (1643) for students of medicine. Based on this information, we must conclude that the first students of the Irish College at Valencia were either holders of scholarships from the College of the Purification, or that they set up a college ex novo. The latter is the most likely explanation. 


The Irish students must have begun to study on an institutional basis around 1623, thanks to the benevolence and patronage of the Dominican Fray Isidoro de Aliaga, successor to Juan de Ribera as Archbishop of Valencia (Aliaga served as Archbishop from 1612 to 1648). The Archbishop was responsible for enrolling the first Irish students, who lived together in a rented house. The college operated without any recognized institutional structure until the arrival of Tracey from Salamanca in 1628, the date at which, as we have seen, the seminary was officially founded. Tracey exuded a certain authority, not only because he was a graduate of the University of Salamanca but also because he had the full backing of the College of the Irish at Salamanca. On the other hand his importance is easily exaggerated: it appears that he spent only a short time at Valencia, perhaps five years.


A month before obtaining the degree of Doctor of Theology, Tracey requested a certificate from the University of Salamanca stating that he had studied Theology from 1627; his intention was surely that he would later present it to the Council of State in order to ask for a viaticum to return to Ireland. It was in Madrid in 1631 that he formally asked for the viaticum, which was granted him in February of that year ‘from the hand of the Senior Almoner’; accordingly, the Senior Chaplain of the Palace must have been the person who processed this merced, as this was the practice in almost all cases.115 However, Tracey did not go to Ireland, but instead went to the University of Alcalá de Henares in 1632, where the Senate of the University appointed him Rector of the Irish College which had been founded there by Theobald Stapleton two years previously. It was surely due to Tracey’s enormous prestige that he was elected to this position. Antonio Cardinal Barberini, Protector of Ireland, visited the College of Alcalá de Henares in 1631, and wrote a report on the Irish Colleges in Spain, dated 4 April 1634. In this report, he details the state of the colleges at Salamanca, Lisbon, Santiago Seville, Madrid and Alcalá; he also mentions the College at Valencia, saying that it was founded around 1624 and that at the time of his writing there were about ten students living on alms in a single house.


Notwithstanding Tracey’s claim to have been the founder of the Seminary College at Valencia, in 1626 Thaddeus Cleary (‘Tadeo Claro’) obtained his doctorate in Theology, and in 1633 so did Hugh O’Reilly; both students had previously obtained their degrees in Arts from the same University. It is therefore clear that, in addition to Tracey, there were two other prominent Irish theologians in Spain in these years. We cannot determine, until more in-depth research is done in the Municipal Archive of Valencia, how many Irish graduates of the Faculty of Theology there were, but we do know from sources in the Archivo General de Simancas and the Archivo General de Palacio Real about a number of petitioners who claimed that they had studied at Valencia; indeed information is also available on Irish students who asked for help in order to be able to study at the University of Valencia under the patronage of Archbishop Aliaga.

Br. Patrick Ambrose Treacy (1834-1912), Catholic educationist, was born on 31 August 1834 at Thurles, County Tipperary, Ireland, the son of William Treacy and Margaret Ryan. Educated at an academy and the local Christian Brothers' school at Thurles, he excelled in mathematics. In February 1852 he joined the Congregation of Christian Brothers, Waterford. After a rigorous course he was posted to various local schools for experience and also continued his studies, including part-time courses under the aegis of the Science Museum, South Kensington. After eight years of teaching at Wexford schools he became headmaster of the Christian Brothers' schools at Carlow. Showing administrative skill he achieved high teaching efficiency and improved school buildings and equipment.

In 1868 Bishop Goold asked for a community of Christian Brothers to establish schools in Victoria. Treacy was chosen as leader, and with three confrères arrived in Melbourne in the Donald McKay in November to find the Catholic school system receiving some state aid, but in a parlous condition under the control of local parish priests. Treacy opened a primary school in Lonsdale Street in 1869. When the Education Act of 1872 set up a system of 'free, compulsory and secular' education, controlled by a state department, the Catholic hierarchy determined to retain and pay for their own school system. Undaunted by lack of money, Treacy initiated a colony-wide campaign to finance land and buildings. With generous help from colonists of all creeds a college was erected in Victoria Parade on Eastern Hill, Melbourne; opened in January 1871, its final cost was about £12,000.

In 1881, he was in Christchurch, New Zealand to open a school: “the Rev. Brother Treacy, Provincial of the Christian Brothers, has been amongst the guests. Your readers will no doubt partly conjecture the immediate cause of Bro. Treacy's visit, and though we have not heard the whole particulars, we are in a position to say that ere long the good people of Christchurch will have amongst them what they so much wish for, the now well-known order of Christian Brothers for their boys.” [11 February 1881 New Zealand Tablet]

Having observed the deplorable state of diocesan schools during his collecting tours, Treacy advocated to the Catholic Education Committee a rise in teachers' salaries and a training college. He offered in the meantime to train as teachers senior boys selected from his own system. There were no funds for a teachers' college but his further offer to inspect metropolitan schools was accepted. Treacy's report on the condition of the system resulted in up-to-date equipment, and under him the Brothers organized a training scheme for their aspirants. At first they were trained in the schools, but in 1897 Treacy decided to use a recent foundation at Lewisham, New South Wales, as a training centre under a qualified master of method. He also arranged for several trained Irish Brothers to migrate each year.

Treacy decided to extend the studies of the more talented of his pupils beyond the primary level and to present them for the civil service and the matriculation examinations. Small classes at Victoria Parade College and St Patrick's, Ballarat, taught by Brothers Nugent and Kennedy respectively, achieved eminent success in these examinations. In the early days not many boys sat for matriculation, but many entered both the civil service and commerce. At this time there were no Irish secondary schools; it was Treacy's initiative and dedication that shaped the pattern of the Australian Christian Brothers' higher education without regard to pupils' social or financial standing.

Gifted with great prudence and business acumen, Treacy also acceded to the requests of the hierarchy to open schools in many parts of Australia. By 1900, when he retired after thirty years as a provincial superior, he had established twenty-seven schools in the principal cities of Australia, and one in New Zealand. He was recalled to Ireland in 1900 as an assistant to the superior-general in Dublin, and returned to the Australian province in 1910. Although retired, he insisted on working and was sent to Brisbane in a bid to prolong his years in a warm climate. He died on 2nd October 1912 in the Brothers' house on the corner of Gregory Terrace and Rogers Street, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. A plaque in the former office of the College indicates the death bed of this outstanding man.

Rita Treacy, of Nenagh Tipperary and Dublin, Dyslexia Specialist and Speech & Language Therapist


Rita is one of five children of former State Solicitor Pat Treacy and his wife Eileen.


It wasn't until she began studying speech & language therapy at Trinity College Dublin in the 1980s that Rita was diagnosed with classic dyslexia. Shortly after graduating from TCD, Rita went to Australia and spent four years working with a speech & language therapy team, where she found both a personal and professional resonance with dyslexia.


On returning to Ireland, she set up her own private practice, where she found that much of the conventional material which although relevant, kept missing its intended target. Seeking to bridge the gap she developed a programme and in 1991 launched 'WordsWorth Learning' (WWL) system for helping children and adults overcome dyslexia and reading and spelling disorders. In 2009, a digital version was launched and an online version in 2011.


In 2017 she published a book on Dyslexia, covering a wide spectrum of issues, including what it's like to be dyslexic, how to identify dyslexia, and how to deal with it. The ten chapters contain a mine of information concluding with direction to the services and supports that are out there. The book is aimed primarily at parents and teachers, and is also be of interest to psychologists, educationalists, speech & language therapists.

Robert & Rebecca Tracy


Robert Tracy (1928-) of Boston Ma & Berkeley Ca, Professor Emeritus of English and Celtic Studies at UC Berkeley


Robert Tracy wears several intellectual hats. Translator of Mandelstam, scholar of 19th-century novelists, he has also been tracking the implications of his own cultural background as an Irish-American over several decades by teaching, lecturing and writing about the literatures of Ireland. As outsider/insider, he sets out in this important and welcome study to explore the rich cultural dilemma of the Anglo-Irish writers, offering readings of Maria Edgeworth and Lady Morgan's concern with intermarriage, Sheridan LeFanu's Gothic anxieties, Yeats's assertions as against Elizabeth Bowen's hesitancies. The metaphor employed by many of these writers for their relation with what Tracy terms "the unhyphenated Irish" is a theatrical one, with the natives represented as audience to the performances of Anglo-Ireland. He is married to Rebecca Garrison  and has a son Dominick O'Donovan Tracy.

Robert Tracy papers, approximately 1958-1990. University of California, Berkeley, Department of English


Robert Tracy is Professor Emeritus of English and Celtic Studies at UC Berkeley. He graduated from Boston College in 1950, received his PhD in Comparative Literature from Harvard, joined the Berkeley faculty in 1960, and has been Visiting Professor of American Literature at Leeds University, of Slavic Studies at Wellesley College, and of Anglo-Irish Literature at Trinity College, Dublin. He has also served as Co-Director of the University of California Dickens Project. His publications include a study of Anthony Trollope’s novels; many articles about Dickens and on Irish topics; editions of works by Synge, Trollope, Flann O’Brien, and Le Fanu; Stone, eighty poems of Osip Mandelstam translated from the Russian; and The Unappeasable Host: Studies in Irish Identities (1998). He is a founding member, with colleagues Brendan O Hehir, Eve Sweetser and Dan Melia, of the UC Celtic Studies Program and, in l985, of ACIS West  (American Committee for Irish Studies), with Professors James Walsh, Audrey Eiler, and Don Jordan. He is a member of the Bay Area Irish Literary and Historical Society, the International Association for the Study of Irish Literatures, and the Dickens Society. In all of these enterprises, Becky has been supporter, editor, research assistant, and critic. Her own theories about the importance of PLAY in education have enriched Robert's approaches to Dickens, Joyce, Seamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon and Nuala Ni Domhnaill.


Rebecca Tracy graduated from Radcliffe College (now Harvard) in 1956 with an AB in History and Literature, and from Sonoma State University in 1978 with  an MA in Early Childhood Education. After a period of advocating in the 1960s with the City of Berkeley for increased child care services, she worked (1971-98) at UC Berkeley as a site director/Head Teacher for the University Child Care Program (now the Early Childhood Education Program), which provides full-day care for infants and  preschool children of University  students,  faculty and staff. At the Harold Jones Child Study Center lab school (1989-98), she was additionally responsible for  incorporating the research requirements of UC students of child development and education. After retiring in 1998 she worked for 10 more years evaluating and mentoring child care programs in Alameda County. In Ireland (Dublin, 1972) she organized classroom space and taught young children of the Travelling community. Publications include articles in the national journals Young Children and Early Education and Development. She currently serves on the Board of the Irish Literary and Historical Society and on the Advisory Committee to the University Early Childhood Education Program, and she sings with the Berkeley Community Chorus and Orchestra.

Research interests include using X-ray Computed Tomography (CT) to understand the response of roots to the soil physical environment. During my PhD project I investigated the response of root system architecture (RSA) to soil compaction. My PhD project was one of the first to capitalise on technological advancements in CT scanning and meant I could scan samples faster and at finer resolutions than previously achievable. In my first year I was able to travel to the University of Adelaide and gain experience using their CT scanner to look at wheat root systems. My other PhD experiments focussed on tomato roots and their response to several soil physical treatments and I measured a variety of root traits using software developed in collaboration with colleagues in the School of Computer Science. I also have experience of using destructive techniques to study roots such as root washing and WinRhizo analysis. My postdoctoral project has allowed me to investigate the water in the soil and root water uptake using new techniques and image analysis regimes. It is in collaboration with mathematical modellers at the University of Southampton and my experimental data feeds directly into the models they are developing based on hydraulic movement of water in soil. Going forward I would like to apply my skills and experience of X-ray CT, soil physics, plant biology and image analysis to answer further questions about the rhizosphere, whilst pursuing an academic career.

He was appointed as a Commissioner in the Northern Ireland Judicial Appointments Commission for a five year term from 4 May 2021 to 3 May 2026. Judicial members with the exception of the Lay Magistrate are not remunerated for their appointment.


Press Notice: Her Majesty The Queen has approved the appointment of The Honourable Mr Justice Stephens, The Honourable Mr Justice Deeny and The Honourable Mr Justice Treacy as Lord Justices of Appeal in Northern Ireland. They will be sworn into office later this year at the Royal Courts of Justice. 17 February 2017

Press Notice: Her Majesty the Queen has appointed Mr Seamus Treacy QC SC to be High Court Judges in Northern Ireland. Both judges were sworn into office before the Right Honourable Sir Brian Kerr, the Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland, on 29 January 2007. Seamus Treacy was educated at Queen’s University, Belfast. He was called to the Bar of Northern Ireland in 1979 and took silk in 1999. He was called to the Bar of Ireland in September 1990 and to the Inner Bar of Ireland in 2000. Mr Treacy has practised as a Barrister since 1980, concentrating mainly in human rights, criminal law, judicial review and public inquiries. He has delivered papers and spoken at conferences on Human Rights, Criminal Law and Fair Employment issues. He is an Arbitrator and Member of the Panel of Arbitrators of the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. He is married with three children.

Irish News report: A Catholic barrister who won a landmark legal action against a promise to serve the Queen has become a High Court judge.  The appointment of Seamus Treacy comes seven years after he successfully challenged the declaration which barristers were required to make before they could join the ranks of senior barristers known as Queen’s counsel (QC).  Mr Treacy and Ben Stephens, also a QC, were sworn in as judges by the Lord Chief Justice, Sir Brian Kerr, at a private ceremony at the High Court in Belfast yesterday. Mr Treacy and another Catholic barrister, Barry Macdonald, were due to be made QCs in December 1999 but a few days before the ceremony they mounted their legal challenge. They took issue with a decision by then lord chancellor Lord Irvine that they must declare they would well and truly serve Queen Elizabeth II. The barristers claimed the declaration discriminated against them as nationalists and was an affront to their political sensibilities. The case led to them boycotting a ceremony at which several of their colleagues were sworn in as QCs. The ruling in their favour infuriated unionists but nationalists who welcomed it as giving effect to the Good Friday Agreement guaranteeing them equality in all aspects of life. A new declaration was in force when the pair were eventually sworn in as QCs on September 8 2000. Reference to the Queen had been omitted and instead they promised to well and truly serve all whom I may lawfully be called upon to serve.

Father William Treacy (1919-2022) was born in Ballyquaid, Killasmeestia, Borris-in-Ossory, Co. Laois on the 31 May 1919 the first child of John Treacy and Mary Delaney.


In 1932, he left for St. Kieran’s College, Kilkenny, a boarding school 30 miles from his parents’ home. It was during that time that Father Treacy decided to become a priest and in 1937, entered St. Patrick’s Seminary, Maynooth. He was ordained in June 1944. In 1945, while the Second World War was still raging, Father Treacy left for Seattle, Washington to fill a temporary vacancy at St. Alphonsus Church. In 1989, he retired after 50 years of service in Washington State. In addition to his duties within his parishes and interfaith projects, Father Treacy was active in faith-based and service organizations that provide aid to the poor as well as those in spiritual need, both at home and overseas. Today, Father Treacy continues to deliver his message of the importance of service and interfaith communication.


In 1960 Father Treacy was chosen to the Catholic representative to the award winning interfaith television program, Challenge, which had been organized by Rabbi Levine. The program aired for fourteen years. Their friendship sprang from those meetings and together they wrote, Wild Branch on the Olive Tree, a book about their relationship.  Rabbi Levine and Father Treacy were friends for 25 years.


Rev William Treacy founded the '' Treacy - Levine '' Centre in 1968 which is situated at Camp Brotherhood, Camp Brotherhood Road, Mt Vernon, which is hour's drive north of Seattle, USA. Camp Brotherhood is an inclusive interfaith organization that offers facilities for educational, spiritual and experiential programs. It fosters harmony in the human family by inviting dialogue and reaching out to religious, spiritual and secular groups, communities, youth, families and individuals of all abilities. It promotes interaction between racial, ethnic, international and cultural groups, seeking to bring peace and reconciliation by increasing mutual understanding and compassion.


In 2014, at 95 years of age and marking 70th year of ordination, he was honoured at a family-style picnic that also celebrated the retreat’s new name: Treacy Levine Center, in honour of Father Treacy and his friend and co-founder, the late Rabbi Raphael Levine. The centre, which aims to “foster harmony in the human family,” offers retreats, programs and conferences that draw people from the U.S. and other countries. It also highlights veterans’ issues and hosts Marriage Encounter events.


In May 2021, there was a parade to honor Father Treacy's 102nd birthday.


He died on the 16 October 2022, aged 103 years. His sister Mary and brothers Sean and Joe preceded him in death. He is survived by his grandniece Lorena, nephew John and other relatives.
