Family Search

Ted Sendler who is travelling to Ireland from the U.S in May is hoping to meet up with some long lost relatives. Ted is the Grandson of Edward J Duggan and Margaret Mockler both originally from the Killenaule area.

Edward, born in July 1867 was the son of Denis Duggan and Ellen Blake, at the time of his birth the family was living in Kilbrennal though may have lived in Crosscannon earlier. Siblings likely included Margaret, Honara, Thomas, John, Patrick, Denis and Michael.

Edward emigrated to America in the 1880’s but other members of the family stayed on in Killenaule (at least for a time) as brothers Patrick, Denis and Thomas are recorded as sharing a house on River Street in the 1901 Census.

Margaret Mockler was born in October 1870 to Lawrence Mockler and Mary Carew (also recorded as Carey) in Mortlestown, Parish of Moyglass. Siblings likely included Bridget, John, Patrick, Mary, Catherine and Ellen.


Ted would love to meet up with any descendants of the Duggans or Mocklers so if any of the above rings any bells please contact him via Facebook or email.




Killenaule Juvenile GAA Club Notes

Killenaule Juvenile GAA Club held an Inter-County Coaching Day at Scoil Ruain, Killenaule for all boys and girls from Ballinure, Moyglass and Killenaule National Schools 1st Class – 6th Class. It was fantastic to see all primary schools in the community coming together for this occasion.  Refreshments were very kindly sponsored by A&C Chemicals Europe Ltd and Mossy Mullins sponsored sliothers for each child. The club would like to acknowledge their support, it is very much appreciated.  The day was a great success starting with the good weather, the large number of Killenaule Inter-County players who volunteered their time to coach each class football and hurling skills. The Scoil Ruain TY students assisted the coaches and helped to give out lunches to the children, their help was greatly appreciated. Thanks to Tipperary Hurler Cathal Barrett who passed on some valuable tips to the children. Thanks to everyone who helped making the lunches, the children were delighted. The Juvenile Club Committee put in a lot of work both before the event and to those on the day your work, time and effort is much appreciated by all.

All children participated showing great skills, enthusiasm and energy and of course requesting this to become a weekly event!! Thanks to the staff at Ballinure, Moyglass, Killenaule N.S and Scoil Ruain for supporting and facilitating this day.  We will in no doubt see some of these children representing their county in the future.  The club looks forward to seeing some new faces from the schools joining in the GAA fun and games as the 2018 season kicks off.
