Coolgreany Evictions
« on: Thursday 10 September 09 12:24 BST (UK) »
Hi

I am trying to trace a book by Peggy Doyle about the Coolgreany Evictions, there is a copy in Gorey Library but it is not for loan. I was wondering if anyone had a copy I could buy or borrow. My wife's family were evicted at the time, Kinsella and I believe that they are mentioned in the book.

Any help appreciated

Regards

Paul

I have a copy of Peggy Doyle's book, but I need to keep it for reference for my own family research for Kinsella also (newtown) and Green (Ballyfad).
I would be happy to assist with providing information from this book which might help your family research.

According to Peggy Doyle's book "The Coolgreany Evictions 1887" The first eviction took place at the house of John O'Neill on 28/Feb 1887.

Hi Peter and Shane, in reply to two questions, I mentioned before that the first evictions were in february 28th 1887 but it seems that it was July 5th before the second wave of evictions took place this second wave lasted about 2 weeks and Peggy Doyle, in her book, stated that 60 families were evicted, about 300 people.
She did not cover all the 60 families so there were more evictions which were not mentioned in her book.

Re Kinsellas, My gggfather John Kinsella lived in Newtown but Peggy Doyle mentions Martin Kinsella as being evicted from newtown, probably john's son.
The other Kinsellas mentioned were Thomas (I think Barrac Croghan) then John Kinsella (also Barrac Croghan ?) Then another Thomas, then Thomas senior, Martin Kinsella (Newtown) then Patrick, then Owen.
Peggy also recounts the story of the shooting of John Kinsella of Barrac Croghan. In this account she mentions that he was a widower and lived with his children, Patrick, Myles, Elizabeth and Bridget . this murder is well documented and a a monument was erected to him in Kilninor cemetery.
If this refers to your family please let me know and maybe I can provide a little more information.

If any one out there has any information on the Newtown Kinsellas or the  Ballyfad Greenes please let me know

Hi Justin

The John Kinsella who was shot does sound like the right person as the names of his children are all family names, two of my wife's uncles were Patrick and Myles Kinsella who were named after uncles of theirs. Do you have any more information on him ?
