Hi

I am originally from Rosslare Harbour where many people moved to when the old fort in Rosslare strand was washed away, There are a family of Shiel who live in Ailsa Lodge Rosslare Harbour a large guest house, I remember hearing once that their family came from Old Fort, you might want to contact them.

Hi There

My G G Grandparents lived on the Fort.  my gg Grandfather was Patrick Cogley and he married Ellen Shiel they had 4 children Aidan Christopher Patrick (Paddy) and Ellen, when they left The Fort the family moved to School Street Wexford Town.

My grandfather William (Bill) Sheil  (or Sheill) was born in 1888 in Rosslare Fort, Rosslare, Co Wexford. For a few years he lived in Grimsby (1918 to 1920 approximately). He had relatives there, Edward Sheil and Christina Sheil, possibly first cousins which I have only recently heard about ond of whom I have no other details. William was married to Margaret (Maggie) Bellamy and they lived at 28 Yarbourgh Street and may have had either a small carpentry or transport business.

Ellen Sheil is a 2nd great grand aunt of mine.

Would anybody kindly happen to know of a Jones (John and Kathleen (O'Brien) Jones) family that lived at Ailsa Lodge during the 1930s?

Thanks!

dathai, thank you so so much for that record. Unfortunately, it is a different John Jones and Kathleen O'Brien...can you believe it! Such common names are making my search very difficult. Our John and Kathleen were married in 1915 in parish Kiltoom, diocese Elphin, Roscommon. John's dad is named William and Kathleen's father is Richard J. O'Brien.

Looking at old newspapers I can see the following names associated with Ailsa Lodge Rosslare Harbour
Allen pre 1925
O'Cochlain 1950
The Commissioners of Public Works 1967
Sheil 1970
No Jones
However if I change the search to Jones and Rosslare Harbour I get
1934 Mr J Jones has been appointed Surveyor of Customs and Excise Rosslare Harbour, he has come from Dublin
Feb 1935
Liam Maher was sentenced for sending a threating letter to Mrs K Jones Rosslare Harbour while she was living in Tivoli Terrace Dun Laoghaire.
The previous June men called to her house and demanded a blue shirt belonging to her son, he was a member of the Blueshirts.
At an id parade she picked out one of the men, afterwards she received a letter claiming to be from the IRA threating to kill her son Richard if she identified any man.
