Hello Ady -
I am so very pleased to hear from you!
. I have been following and trying to trace the Donnelly's from Kirley, Lisnamuck & Bracaghreilly as I am convinced that they are all related somehow! I have quite a bit of information
and I would be pleased to pass on what I know. However, you must make 3 postings before you can use the PM (personal message system)! I have looked at the films for the 1901 & 1911 Census for the Donnelly's in these townlands - I have made a transcription from these Censuses, the following you may find of interest. Perhaps already knew?1901 - Lisnamuck
Charles Donnelly (age 59), Mary Donnelly (55), Francis (19) son, Alice (16) daughter, Charles (14), son and Rose (11), daughter.1911 - Lisnamuck
Charles Donnelly (72), Mary Donnelly (69), Francis (29) son, Alice (25) daughter, Rosella (19) daughter, Andrew Doogan 3 1
I am hopeful of trying to contact other Donnelly relatives and would love to pool our information - and maybe find out how we are all related and perhaps a little bit more about the family in general - how they all faired and where they went to! Please keeping posting because it would be great to be in touch further!
PS - I have a copy of the 1831 census - There are 4 Donnelly men (head of households) listed living in Lisnamuck - one being a John Donnelly.
