Dublin / Re: John and Hugh Donnelly

I'll be watching this thread to see how you get along :D

I haven't got very far with the Donnelly side of my family and I don't have a "Hugh" but I could do!

My Donnelly's lived around Cuffe St, Yorke St and Stephens Green which is not far from Bride St and Peter St at all!

I see a 1903 marriage for a John Coughlan in Cork on IFHF but it'd obviously be taking a chance, for 5 euro, and it might not even be him.

Oh my apologies Shane, I didn't realise that was the new parish records site! :)

I got an email from that genealogy site just before Christmas and some more Cork ones have been added. However, south Cork is still marked 'red' so I don't know if they have covered cork city yet.

Cork / Uniform factory?
« on: Saturday 02 January 10 22:13 GMT (UK)  »
Happy New Year everyone!

I've been trying to get as much info from my gran as I can regarding our ancestors and she tells me the family were once involved in a uniform factory, she says for the British Army? In fact she says that they ran it. Now I know how stories can change as they pass down through the generations so I would like to establish firstly if such factory existed.

They lived mainly in Charleville, and the surrounding areas so I figure it would have been in that area. Also possible it may have been just over the border in Limerick? If anyone has any suggestions as to where I might find this kind of information, I'd love to hear from you :)

Dublin / Re: Roche family Coombe Dublin
« on: Thursday 29 October 09 00:12 GMT (UK)  »
I can see a Julia Roche living with a Mary at 128 Thomas Street in the 1939/40 Electorial list...

Along with a Mary Frances Roche and a John J Roche....lot of people in this house, including Dempseys and Dohertys

A William Roche living at 53 Thomas Street, living with lots of other people, none Roches

And that's all I can see. But I'm not great with Dublin streets, so the streets some of the Roches were living on could be right next to Thomas Street

Thanks very much Shane!

it's been so hard with this side of the family (my dad's) because no one seems to know a lot! I just get blank faces when I start asking questions  ::) This is his father's family. And to top it all off my dad's mother was an orphan so that side of the family tree is tiny! I have about 400 people on my mother's side!

I'll keep an eye on this thread til I get up next time Draigoch. I was up only two weeks ago. I plan on going back in the next few weeks so if no one else does it by then I'll have a look for you.
