COSTELLO & RYAN - Tipperary
« on: Saturday 24 November 07 13:10 GMT (UK) »
Could some kind soul help me to trace my ancestors from Tipperary.
One of the problems I have, is finding the places on the certificates I have. My Greatgrandfather was married in Hollyford in the parish of Doon. Has this any connection to Doon in Limerick?
His children lived in Reafadda in the parish of Kilcommon.
I have a problem finding these places. Has the names changed, if so, could someone tell me its name nowadays.
The families I'm looking for are Costello(e) and Ryan. ???

Hi Rathkeal
I have found Doon and It is between Tipperary Town and Thurles on the map just to the west Hollyford is juist up from Doon to the right.  I notice you are looking for Ryans, I have a Ellen Ryan From Tipperary but I don't know what part she married my G/Grandfather James Neville, can you lrt me know if there is a connection with your Ryans please.  I am unable to find Reafadda or Kilcommon on the map.  Hope this helps.

Many thanks Bowerboy, sorry I couldn't get back sooner.
Tipperary is full of Ryans, and all I know about my relative is the fact she was married to Thomas Costello. I'm guessing she must have come from Doon, as she was married there.
Then they lived in Reafadda. Again thanks for taking the trouble to reply. Kindest regards, Tess. :)

Hi I think I may   be of help here.  My grandfather was Thomas Costello and he married (2nd time) Mary Ann Ryan (married 28-Jun-1915, Hollyford) they were both from the village of Raefadda.  His first wife was Brigdet Hayes.  My father was from the first family, he was much older than my mother and died in 1974 aged 73. My understanding is that Thomas Costello and Mary Ann Ryan moved to Greenan Mor in Rathdrum, Co Wicklow after their marriage, and had a number of children of whom one daughter - Lucy and one son - Matt remain alive today.
I hope this is of help.
