Nice picture John. Is that one from the NAI collection?

Interesting that there is a Ryan in the picture given the association between Kinsella and Ryan prior to the killing.

You are correct Dara, there are quite a collection of photographs covering the Coolgreany Evictions in the National Photographic Archive’s section of the Library.

Your Ryan / Kinsella comment has me confused and i am not sure what the association is?

John,

This brief excerpt from the link I posted earlier may illustrate:

"Here we found Mr. George Freeman, the bailiff of the Coolgreany property, a strong, sturdy man, much disgusted at finding it necessary to go about protected by two policemen. That this was necessary, however, he admitted, pointing out to us the place where one Kinsella was killed not very long ago. The son of this man Kinsella was formerly one of Mr. Brooke's gamekeepers, and is now, Mr. Freeman thinks, in concert with another man named Ryan, the chief stay of the League in keeping up its dominion over the evicted tenants".

Dara.

Not sure, but i think there is some writings on croghan evictions in Michael Fitzpatricks "Historic Gorey" books. I don't have them to hand to confirm but will check it out.

Re: Coolgreany Evictions -Greene family of Knockgreany, Coolgreany
« Reply #15 on: Friday 02 July 10 16:04 BST (UK) »
My great grandfather was evicted from Knockgreany in the Coolgreany Evictions of 1887.  Unfortunately, after the evictions my great grandfather lost touch with his 7 brothers.  The names I have so far are John, Richard, Patrick, Daniel Greene. Not sure if there are any sisters.

I know from Griffiths Valuation there was
Patrick Greene 1a Knockgreany
Patrick Greene 1b Knockgreany -sub letting out this property to another person Mr Sunderland
John Greene 2 Knockgreany.

From my understanding the Knockgreany Green/es are related to the Ballyfad Greene's, the Kinsellas and the Darcy families who were also evicted. No doubt they are related to most of the families in that area at that time.

Would love to hear from any of their descendants.  Maybe we can piece together all the bits of information we have.

I spoke to Michael Fitzpatrick last week he has a mind of information on the history of Gorey.  I also contacted Gorey library and they have a copy of each of the volumes.  Although I have not seen the volumes I understand there is only a fairly small section which mentions the Green/es due to the fact the evictions are part of the Gorey history.  But worth a look if you are ever in Gorey library!
Best wishes
Kath

My ancestor is Alice Green born 1850 ballyfad.  I know little about her but I believe Justin Rossney has much more about the Green/kinsella family.  I would love to get Alice's birth on the IGI.

Civil registration of births in Ireland started in 1864- for earlier dates you need to search for church records (if they exist).
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
