I am beyond delighted to visit this website. My greatgrandparents (Michel Ryan and Mary Gleeson) were married in Killenaule Church in 1865. I've been searching for them my whole life - and now I've found at least a piece of their history. They lived in Lismortagh before leaving for the US. I'll be heading to Ireland in March and hope that I'll be able to visit this church. Blessings from across the sea.
Greetings to Killenaule. Thanks to all who kept us informed through the web site, facebook etc.and of course the 2017 year book, much appreciated. Wishing you all a happy, safe and holy Christmas. Michael Lyons Sydney

Our ancestry research has led us to Killenaule. It appears that my great, great, great, great grandfather Daniel Walsh and his wife Ellen (nee Harris) Walsh immigrated from Killenaule to the USA with four of their children circa 1850. Baptismal records indicate that four other children did not make the move with them.
My grandfather Edward J. Duggan was born in July 1867 in Killendale, County Tipperary. Emigrated about 1884. Siblings were Thomas, John, Dennis, Margaret and Edie, who emigrated to Australia. He said that he was descended from French Hugenots. Nana was Margaret Mockler, born October 14, 1870 also in Killendale, County Tipperary. Emigrated in 1886 or 1888. Siblings were Bridget, Mary, Catherine, John, Patrick, Thad. (Another account has Nana emigrating in 1893 and Poppa later. They were married in 1897. How can I trace my Duggan family roots in Killenaule? Thanks
The Killenaule Parmacy since 1827 is part of my own heritage, I think. I have a photo I found of Poole\'s glass negatives of Patrick Dunning and his wife, Bride Kennedy and three male children in Killenaule. He took over the pharmacy when his father, Thomas, passed away in about 1910. It was a third generation pharmacy, I suppose. If anyone has any other information about them, I would like to know. Thomas dunning, Sr. would be my gg grandfather.
Burnchurch, Killenaule always in my heart. My happiest memories are of spending time there with my grandparents and grandaunt & uncle, family etc..a very special place and people. Glad most of my children got to visit. Up Tipp!xN
Signing in as direct descendant of Richard Power and Catherine Russell of the parish (married Feb 6, 1822.) They emigrated as a family group to Utica NY. Catherine's parents were James Russell and Joanna Gantly; Richard's parents were John Power and Alicia Morris (one record gave Alicia's name as Eliza but was given as Alicia in other sources.) Greetings from USA and especially to any of the family still in area, would like to hear from you.
Hello Killenaule, Just visiting your web site. It been years since I was on your last one. This one is awesome. Really enjoyed the old photos. It would be grand if anyone had old photos of school from 1964 to 1966 they could post up. Those were the years I lived in Killenaule (I think). Cheers, Mike

In 1898, my great grandfather "John Cantwell" left his home in Killenaule and made his way to America. I am wondering if any Cantwell's remained behind and are poss still in the Killenaule area. If anyone has any information I would appreciate it if they would contact me via email and let me know. Thank you all.
Hello all!. My Great Great Grandfather Richard Lahert came from Rathroe, Killenaule.
I came upon this website as I was looking for Dunnings of Killenaule. Apparently my great great grandfather, Thomas Patrick Dunning, lived there with his wife, Ann, and their children. My great grandfather came to the states in 1860, just in time for the Civil war. I am trying to find out more about my history, and I enjoyed your site. Thanks Patty Fleming
Glad to be able to access a local site of interest - just what\'s needed.
I was priveledged enough to spend the summer with the wonderful people in Killenaule in 1971 . As a 15 year old it was the best summer of my life riding horses with Mary Carroll & staying at the inn with the Cormac family . It's a beautiful job you've done with your website congratulations !

Thank you for the detailed website information. I was passing through the village over the christmas and was struck with the beauty of the area. This rural village is so well kept, and the views are beautiful. It makes me so proud to live in this area when, throughout the year visitors are welcomed into our communities with open arms.

Well done to the Killenule. net website and the Slieveardagh website for keeping our beautiful spot in the counrty of Ireland appreciated by those who visited in the past and hopefully through 'The Gathering' this year in Ireland. Fondest regards A Proud Resident xx
