Hi I was wondering if you have any records for the Melia family from Mullingar. My father is Lawrence Melia born 1931 and his father was Patrick Melia I think born about 1890?, my fathers mother was Alice Farell (I think her father was Lawrence Farell who ran the butchers in Multifarm(1890?) I think she was from Multifarm(not sure if spelt right) I believe, they lived at Bishops gate street, Mullingar and moved to 1 Cathedral view, mullingar in (1931?) I know they had about five children, Bridie, Mary, Rosanne, Thomas and my Father Lawrence.

Patrick was a builder in and around westmeath, he was married prior to my grandmother, dont know her name, they had John, Lilly, Patrick Jr, Baby? and James as far as I know.

I think Patrick my grandfather had 3 siblings, Frank, Tony and Mary, but again not sure, could be more etc.

My uncle Tommy played football for Mullingar Town and I think was known as the rubber man.

If you have any information on the melia and the Farell family, I would be very thankfull, sorry for the family tree.

Cheers John Melia(now in Stoke on Trent, England)

Hello John
 I came across your message by accident and I think that my grandfather was a brother of Patrick. His name was Frank Melia and he lived at 10 Cathedral View. He died young aged 32 around early 1930,s I believe and left a widow Mary and three small children, one of whom was my mother who was then about 6 years. I remember Tommy Melia from when I was young, He used to cycle around town and collect for the football pools. Hope this is of some intrest to you.

Hi Caroline and welcome to rootschat,
My parents stayed with the family at number 12
cathederal view in 1940 for a few months after
they married in Mullingar cathederal
 (eloped from Dublin) I have visited the
street and have photos somewhere and also
had a conversation with the lady at number 12.
don't want to mention the name here as for all I
know the family may still live there.my mother was
also in contact with the family for a while after that.
She talked often about all the people on that stretch
 of the street.
