In praise of Irish villages (in the summer sun)


2 Irelands together

Earlier this month I spent a week walking along back roads and across hills through a relatively unknown part of the rural north and west of Ireland. I started at the village of Tynan, west of Armagh city; walked across north Monaghan and the Upper Lough Erne lakeland district in Fermanagh; into west Cavan and down through Leitrim to Carrick on Shannon; and then westwards as far as the village of Coolaney under the Ox Mountains in Sligo. I had intended to continue across Mayo to Ballintubber Abbey and Croagh Patrick, but because of an injury (not serious) was forced to stop there. I will return to complete the walk later in the summer.

What struck me again and again during this walk was how lovely so many Irish villages looked in the brilliant summer sunshine. This is not a fashionable or wealthy part of the country; the opposite, in…

 I am attaching a letter from my gg grandfather’s brother, Edward Conner to this email.  I think you may find it interesting as it mentions some practices of the times as well as a lot of people from Ballineen, including Dr. Jagoe, who came to check on my 3 great grandmother when she was sick.  It mentions my ancestor’s brother, William Stephens Conner, who had joined the north from the state of Iowa, as a private.  Wm had obtained free 80 acres of land, first in Illinois, then again in Iowa.  He wanted to fight to preserve the country where he could own land.  What Edward did not know, is that my ancestor, Dr John McNamara-Swan Conner (O’Connor), had gone with William to serve as an unpaid doctor for Wm’s unit.  The mention of Tom, is Thomas Conner Jr, my gg grandfather’s eldest brother, who stayed in St john, New Brunswick as a teacher, never married, and passed away there.  There was also a sister who married a Jagoe from West Cork, however, so far as I know, they had no children.

1792. 27th November. Order of Lord Lieutenant in Council, on petition of Rev. John Kenney,  Vicar of Durrus, Kilcrohane, and Kilmacomoge (Bantry), stating, that in these three vicarages, contiguous and episcopally united, and in length about 24 miles, there is but one church, at Bantry; in consequence of which the inhabitants of Kilbrogan, and of these denominations of plowlands. (viz., Ardoguina, Ballina, Brahalish, Ballycomane, Currahavadera, Coolnaharna, Clasadoe, Capanabona, dlr. Hyde’s Clonee, Coonikee, Croties, Courcolagth, Dromreagh, Dromderaum, Dromatinnehan, Dromreag, Esknabreeny, Upper and Lower Gurteen, Gerameen, Keiloveemo,,e, Kealtas, Lisaremig, Murrick, Rooscagh, Rossmore, Ruskinanised, Tedock, and Ucterglina) can’t, without great inconvenience, resort to it, being from 3 to 8 miles away, but will be within 3 miles at farthest from the new church intended to be built at Carrigbuge, in Durrus parish ; therefore the above townlands will be separated from Kilcrohane, and united to Durrus ; and per 96 DURRUS. [CORK. contra, the following townlands of Durrus will be united to Kilmacomoge, viz., Letterlicky, Agagoheen, Arda, Ardevolebane, Beach, Blackrock, Bargurum, Capanalogher Clonee, Dromclogb, Donbittern, Derrigrinagh, Dromacousane, Dromleigh, Gurticlona, Glenlough, Knockikillen, Maulavard, Paurcana, and the Scarts. As the vicarages are now worth-Kilmocamore, £200; Durrus, £220, and Kilcroghan, £80, £500 in all-so, when the separation aforesaid takes place, Kilcrobane will be worth £250, and Kilmocamoge also £250, saving to present Vicar his rights, &c., for his incumbency.

Early draft. There are probably many (all male) student at the various Irish Colleges in Spain, France, USA, and Italy some non clerical in the 17th, 18th and 19th century as well as medical colleges at Leiden, Paris, Edinburgh which hopefully over time will emerge. This is a continuing work but slow.
