The tithe references are possibly a relict of the Norman incursions to West Cork. These areas belonged to either St Catherine’s of Waterford or the College of Youghal They appear in the accounts books of St Finbarrs Cathedral Cork from the 1780s, the ledgers are in pristine condition in the RCB Library in Rathgar, Dublin.

Payment of War Bonuses to Teachers during Word War 1, example Durrus National School, West Cork.

Included in the accounts records of the school, are computations of the relevant bonuses payable to teachers. This was widespread at the time, owing to a shortage of men in the United Kingdom of which Ireland was then a part.

Primitive Wesleyan Methodist ‘quarterly membership tickets’


Originally posted on Irish Methodist Genealogy:

The early Primitive Wesleyan Methodist class tickets were similar in form to those used for the 18th century turnpikes. They were bordered and dated and followed the design of their Wesleyan contemporaries with the date, in the first instance, being outside the border but later placed within it. The name of the Society was not inserted until September 1828. There were a variety of border designs used until 1846 by which time the ticket had evolved into its final format.

It remained thus until the union of Wesleyans and Primitive Wesleyans in 1878. Then the title of the Irish tickets was changed to ‘Methodist Society’ and it was further amended to ‘Methodist Church’ in December 1893.

The use of the word ‘Methodist’ without any descriptive adjective being appended anticipated a similar change in the English tickets by more than half a century.

Jack Dukelow (1866-1953), Rossmore, Durrus, West Cork, linking O’Sullivan Bere to Past and Present Governor of Louisiana and former US Senator for Louisiana.


Jack Dukelow (1866-1953), Rossmore, Durrus, West Cork, linking O’Sullivan Bere to Past and Present Governor of Louisiana and former US Senator for Louisiana.

Jack’s daughter Sarah was the mother of Ernest Dukelow who was adopted by the Snelling family in New Orleans in the early 1950s. He became an Attorney and married Mary Landriue, up to last year US Senator for Louisiana. Her brother is the current Governor and her father a former one of the State.

Jack’s grandmother was Margaret O’Sullivan one of the Hurrig Sept. She is descended from the 1774 marriage of Michael Sullivan and Mary Vickery of Whiddy Island. It is believed that Michael descends from O’Sullivan Bere, possibly on the Finnin Dubh side. He was a Heart Tax collector in Bantry and extensive middle man.

Interestingly one of the descendants of the Tedagh (Durrus/Bantry) branch in the 1830s was living in New Orleans and papers had to be sent to him for notarization in connection with a family settlement.
