County Kerry coat of arms

Green, often rainy, but always beautiful, the county of Kerry is arguably the ultimate Irish destination. Kerry or "the Kingdom" as it often referred to by the Irish, is known for its rich history in Irish language and music, its fantastic mountains and coasts, its involvement in the Irish War of Independence (1919-1921) and the Irish Civil War (1922-1923) and its slightly mad but always welcoming local population, with their rolling dialect.

Co. Kerry is easily the most sought-after destination in Ireland for foreign visitors, thanks to the Ring of Kerry, which circumnavigates the rocky Iveragh Peninsula. The MacGillacuddy's Reeks, located near the picturesque Lakes of Killarney, is one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in Ireland, offering unparalleled views of the Atlantic Ocean from the country's highest peak, Carrauntoohil (1038 m). Further west, the Dingle Peninsula – popular with hillwalkers – stretches out into the Atlantic, culminating at Dunmore Head, Ireland's westernmost point. Dingle is a popular town with locals and visitor alike, with many excellent bed and breakfast and guesthouse options offering great value for money and the best in Irish hospitality. Dingle is also renowned for its spectacular local produce - sample some tasty seafood chowder, crab claws or expertly prepared grass-fed beef or lamb in one of the many fine restaurants in Dingle town. From the late spring to the early autumn Dingle's character-filled local pubs buzz with lively banter (on topics ranging from the weather, politics and the much passionately supported Gaelic football team) and traditional music sessions. Take a drive around Slea Head, part of the Wild Atlantic Way, taking in many beautiful beaches and the coastal villages of Ballyferriter and Ventry. If you happen to be passing through Ventry in the summer months, a pint of stout at Páidí's bar - named after the legendary Kerry footballer and manager is a must. 

One of the most unique areas are the Skellig Rocks or Skellig Islands which are two islands off the coast of Ballinaskeillgs. You may recognise Skellig Michael and the Skellig Islands from the Star Wars franchise films Episode VII "The Force Awakens" (filmed on the islands in 2014) and Episode VIII "The Last Jedi" (filmed in 2015) where they feature prominently. The main island, Skellig Michael was an early Christian monastery that is now a world heritage site. A boat journey around the island would be equally stunning. 

The Maharees Peninsula, halfway between Tralee and Dingle, is famous for its sandy beaches and clean water. The longest beach in Ireland stretches from the Maharees westwards through Castlegregory to Cloghane village – 12 miles in length. All of the beaches are sandy, and many are suitable for surfing and other watersports, such as scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, canoeing and waterskiing. Equipment and instruction are available locally.

During the summer months, a wide variety of entertainment is available, from currach racing to a week-long carnival in July. Castlegregory Pattern Day is celebrated on 15 August, when the tradition is to eat locally-made mutton pies and wash them down with plenty of Guinness. One of the more unique and unusual festivals is Puck Fair in Killorglin - where a wild mountain goat is declared the king of the town for the three days of the festival, one of the longest-running in Ireland.

Gap of Dunloe Killarney Kerry

Inland, the warm town of Killarney is a popular pit stop, with more pubs per capita than almost any other place in Ireland.

Be sure to take time to explore the serene Killarney National Park, with its myriad of lakes and mountains, and Ross Castle, a 15th-century clan fortress. You can take a "jaunty car" (famous horse and cart) around the part for about what we worked out as a euro a minute. The average trip is about 40 mins to an hour. Another way to see the park is by bikes which can be rented just outside the town (cost about 15 euro each for the day with 5 euro extra for a pretty cool little trailer for children). When you are in the park you have to go and see Muckross House. The tour takes about 30 minutes and costs ~7 euro. The house was built for Henry Arthur Herbert in 1843. In 1861 Queen Victory visited the house. The Herberts spent so much money on preparing the house for the Queen's visit that they went bankrupt! Let that be a lesson to you. Apparently, the Herberts thought that if they could impress Queen Victoria she would repay them for their hospitality. While Victoria was impressed, her husband died on her return to England and due to her loss, the Queen forgot about the poor Herberts, who subsequently went bankrupt! Muckross is a stunning house and is definitely worth the visit. The house if full of original furniture and the keepers of the house have blocked out the sunlight in many of the rooms to protect the furniture from fading. As a result, it doesn't take much to imagine the Queen walking into the room as it stands today. (Note this tour wouldn't be suitable for young children; book the tour in advance).

Muckross House Killarney Kerry

Most people will stay in Killarney while touring the Ring of Kerry (which takes about 3 hours solid driving, half a day with stops. You can drive the Ring of Kerry (counter-clockwise to take account of the narrow, winding roads and tour buses) in one sitting; however, I would suggest trying to stay at least a night at one of the many accommodation sites on the Ring of Kerry in Kenmare or Glenbeigh. That said, if you do stay in the heart of Killarney there is a great buzz about the town, with live music, comedy and various festivals such as Killarney Bikefest, The Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle and The Killarney Racing Festival taking place throughout the year. In 2015 Killarney will host the Killarney Festival of Food and Music, with acts such as Texas, Burt Bacharach and Duran Duran featuring along with an array of comedy acts and gourmet food on offer. The town is full of high-end hotels and a variety of restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes and budgets.

If you come to Kerry around the end of August, you might join the festivities or catch a glimpse of the Roses coming down from around the world to the Kerry capital, Tralee, for the Rose of Tralee International Festival. The Festival marks 60 years in 2019 and is a celebration of Irish culture and heritage held every year in August. Supported by over 60 Rose centres globally - in Ireland, the UK, Europe, the Middle East, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand - each Centre sends a representative, a young woman of Irish descent called a Rose, to the Festival to compete for a chance to be crowned the Rose of Tralee. The Roses participate in Festival events, Rose parades and the two nights of live television broadcast to the nation by RTÉ reaching 1.3m viewers. The second night's TV show culminates in the announcement of the Rose of Tralee and is one of the country's most-watched TV programmes with over half a million viewers last year in Ireland and 110,000 international viewers (tune in on RTÉ channel in Ireland, RTÉ Player or RTÉ Player International). The crowned Rose of Tralee then takes on a year-long ambassadorial role representing Ireland and the Festival both locally and around the world.  Numerous events are held throughout the five-days, tickets to the events do sell fast so book in advance to avoid disappointment.

To get more information on the programme of events, book tickets or apply to become a Rose, Rose Escort, volunteer or sponsor the event, click here.

Gaelic football is a way of life in Kerry, whose team has obliterated the rest of Ireland by winning the Sam Maguire cup a whopping 37 times. Expectations run high as all eyes focus on the progression of the team during the National Football Championship, which begins in May and climaxes in the Football Final in Croke Park in Dublin in September. The county is also home to several Irish-speaking Gaeltacht areas, including much of the Dingle Peninsula.

Cahergall Stone Fort, Cahersiveen, Kerry

Famous Kerry people include actor Gregory Peck's paternal grandfather, Thomas Ashe, who was an ardent Irish nationalist and took part in the Easter Rising in 1916. Irish liberator Daniel O'Connell was from Cahersiveen, Co. Kerry, and actor Michael Fassbender, who grew up in Killarney, and whose parents owned and ran a popular local restaurant called the West End House, still open to diners today. A popular holiday spot for former and current prime ministers or "Taoisigh" (pronounced "thee-shig"), other visitors include former US president Clinton and Charlie Chaplin.

I am planning a trip to Ireland with my in- laws next year and am hoping to find out a bit more about my heritage before we go! What I know is that my father's grandparents came over into Ellis Island sometime between appx 1898-1903 and settled in NY. My grandma married James Murphy, who I believe came from Ruth DeWald and Benjamin Murphy. I am also told that we have a Duke ancestor who was an infamous forger who was chased out of Ireland and into Scotland.

My family member is named James Murphy. He was born in County Tyrone, Dungannon, to be exact. He served in the British cavalry during World War 1. He was a dragoon, a hussar, a cavalry sniper, and a lancer. He was wounded after a German stormtrooper slashed across his face with a knife and left him with scars.

Sullivan

MY Great Grandfather was Daniel Sullivan. He came to Victoria Australia c1860. Records say he was born 1840 in County Cork (no details). He was RC and married a Protestant so had two weddings on the same day at Port Fairy, Victoria I believe this was fairly common to keep both families reasonably happy. . Both Certificates say his father was John Sullivan. The RC one says his mother was Mary Kennedy - the C of E one says his mother was Julia Manning. Makes it virtually impossible to find which Daniel Sullivan he was and from which part of County Cork he was from. I have a list of Daniel Sullivans born in County Cork and marriages of a John with Mary Kennedy and Julia Manning but can't pin him down. Any suggestions.

My great great grandfather was Roger Sullivan of County Kerry; left in May 1848 on the Swan out of Cork with wife Catherine Moynihan. Died in Warren County, NY, early 20th century. Had several (11?) children, among them John R. (my great grandfather), Patrick and Joanna (died young, buried in St Mary's Cemetery in South Glens Falls, NY, with Roger and Catherine). I have not been able to find much else. John R's wife, my great grandmother Anna Stack Sullivan, also had parents who emigrated, I presume during the Famine, but I can't find anything about her parents other than census records stating they were born in Ireland.

If a male Griffin has DNA analysis done by 23andme, currently they will assign the Scottish Highlander Y haplogroup R-S764 to members of Kerry Ireland origin Griffins. FTDNA Y-37 or Y-111 may help you find Griffin male-line relatives. FTDNA Big Y-700 testing can provide much greater detail and possibly genealogical certainty but is more expensive.

For VirginiaKathleen look at my addition to above text re the synonymous usage of Lynchahan and Lynch in 19th century Registers in Inishowen, Donegal, as noted by the Register General Matheson in his Varieties Synonymes of Surnames...in Ireland 1901. This means a strong likelihood of Donegal Lynches being O Loingseachain, especially taken together with the comments of Woulfe, supra.

My mother always told me we were descended from the Galway Lynches, but her mother Katherine Bridget Lynch and her 7 siblings were born in Moville, Co. Donegal. Her father, Edward Lynch, was a marine engineer, and her mother, Katherine McLaughlin, was a District Nurse. They resided on Quay St. and sadly, died at young ages, when my grandmother was 9 leaving 8 orphaned children 5 of which were minors. They went to live in a Catholic orphanage across the Bay of Inishowen in Derry. My grandmother immigrated to NY and Brooklyn in 1911. Later married John Barr of Ballymacarthur, Donegal. Hello...

Lynching is attributed to Charles Lynch 17361796, an American Revolutionary who headed a Virginia court punishing supporters of the British. I prefer the story I was passed down, that it originates from a Mayor of Galway, James Lynch, who hung his son from the balcony of his house in 1493.

John Walsh was my grandad, he came over from Ireland to London, where I was born. He grew up in a home and so his heritage is slightly shrouded in history, especially on his Dad's side - whoever he may have been. Some secret. He was born in Dublin, was sent to Cork, and then found himself in Galway. That's when he met my Nanny Norah and eventually came over here to London.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Walsh story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages. Guy de Sancto Wallerico’s ancestor joined the Normans and invaded England in 1066. In 1128, he is granted lands in south Wales.

(Part 1 of 3) You may say the Walsh surname is not of Irish origin, but Welsh and Norman (from Normandy, France). But now DNA and some recorded history says otherwise. DNA tells us the origin of Walsh is as Irish as they come. The Walsh story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B2] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Walsh surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly and McDonald in Ireland.

(Part 1 of 3) The McCarthy name has a long history in Ireland, but now DNA and some recorded history says the Kerry region of McCarthy’s has a separate origin from the McCarthy’s of Cork. The Kerry McCarthy story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The McCarthy surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Dáirine will join with the Dál Riata of north-east Ireland and invade Scotland around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The McCarthy story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

Looking for ancestors, siblings and descendants of William Fitzgerald & Mary Duggan/Small, born about 1840; married Mary Duggan (or Mary Small depending on church & civil records). Between 1865 and 1879 they have Patrick, Michael, John, Thomas, Catherine, James and twins Anne and Bridget - possibly others. I'm descended from John, and John and Catherine emigrated to New Jersey, USA in the 1890s. The twins apparently died before they were 1 year old. Most were born in Bruff, Hospital and Ballingoola.

I have been searching for family and this is what I have found about my great-grandmother (it may seem like I am really old but my dad and his father had children late in life), her name was Catharine Shea, her nickname was Cate, Kate. She married Andrew Warren in Kill (Kill and Lyons/Kill and Leighlin parish Roman Catholic), Co. Kildare in August 1848, then had a son, John (maybe E middle initial) in October 1849, Oughterard, Co Kildare. We know Andrew came to the US and must have come through Charleston, South Carolina port as they had a large # of Irish that came to work on the railroad to build from the coast to Nashville, Tennessee we think it was around August of 1851, he built a house in Chattanooga, TN and stayed on with the railroad, she came later with her young child that could walk (story about them in local paper...she said she was from Dublin.) They first appear on the census record in 1860. The other children we know of were, Andrew B., Mary Edna, Catherine, James Joseph, Thomas Joseph, and Elizabeth (Lizzie). There was a James Shea, as a sponsor, and a Mick Christian, Eliza Casey or Carey, and a Eliza Keegan (I think). No family photos or stories other than about her walking through the brambles to get to her new home in the "wilderness" of the new city, and a blurb in a local history book about them being Northern sympathizers and their house was used by the US Army provost marshal and Gen. Rosecrans would come to meet him there, then came back to town years later and visited them, also they had a donkey they were hiding in the house during the war, and dead soldiers in their yard, they also hid "conscientious objectors" in their attic, Andrew helped start a temperance society, and they took care of people during the Yellow Fever of 1878 and lost Andrew and daughter Catherine, the daughter, Lizzie was mentioned in the Atlanta paper as also having helped the sick. Cate was noted as being a refined woman. My dad only said they came over because of the "potato famine" (i know, I know...) I went to Ireland in 2019 and when in Dublin spent a little of my "free" time at the NIL and the EPIC Fam. Hist. Center. I did not get a chance to go to Oughterard/Ardclough Co. Kildare. I know that Cate's children all used the name O'Shea instead of Shea as her surname on her death cert. and any of their records, marriage, death. Anyone related?

(Part 1 of 3) The Connor name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the south-west region of the Emerald Island. The Connor story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Connor surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.
Reply
logo

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Dáirine will join with the Dál Riata of north-east Ireland and invade Scotland around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Connor story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Donohue story begins in pre-history Ireland but relatives will then move to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. A descendant and many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

O Donnchadha is a great Irish name. The sept relevant for Tangara would be that of Cinel Laoghaire, whose original patrimony lay in West Cork. However, a great part of them were driven from there by the McCarthys and O Mahonys into Kerry, where they divided into two famous branches 1 the O Donohues of Loch Lein O Donohue More and those of Glenflesk O Donohue of the Glen. Together they ruled the lands about Killarney, known as Eoghanacht Ui Donnchadha. I would hazard a guess that would be a good starting point, as the bride was an O Callaghan O Ceallachain, a Cork and Kerry name.

Tangara

My grandfather, Patrick J. Donohue was born in 1856 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. His parents were Dennis Donohue born 1826 in Ireland and Honora Anne Callaghan born 1831 in Ireland. I have not been able to find any information on where they are from in Ireland, why they left Ireland, or when they came to Canada. Any help would be appreciated. Tangara

Mary Jane Noreen Dickas,

For genealogical purposes, Our father, George W. Leahy was born in1893 in Brooklyn NY. He was the last surviving son of Nora Clifford Leahy and Timothy Leahy. Timothy arrived in the U.S. aboard an immigrant ship out of Liverpool in 1870, and the ship's manifest lists his age as 21 then. Nora Clifford arrived in NY at the age of 16 around 1872. I have no record of which counties in Ireland they lived in previously. Timothy was a day laborer and he died around 1915 in B'klyn. Nora (Honora) lived until 1932. also in B'klyn.

Hi Im trying to trace my Leahy ancestors but am not having much luck. My grandmother was born Catherine Mary Leahy in Middlesbrough,Yorkshire,England in December 1905.Her father John Leahy, he was also born in Middlesbrough in 1869,he married Mary Hagan in Middlesbrough in 1896, his marriage record shows his fathers as Jeremaie.I think the family came from Cork.The 1871 census shows a Jeremiah Leahey born 1839 in Ireland, he does not appear in the 1881 census,this census shows a Jeremiah Lahey born 1845 in Ireland. I dont know if either of these are the father of my John. Thanks

My grandfather was born 1838 (Timothy Herbert) in Kent His father Herbert Timothy I guess fled ireland and became a feller being Irish a tree fell upon his cabin and he died sadly. Of course my gandfather went broke 35 years before I was born and off to WA goldfields. I should be famous because I shout at the world there is only sunshine (starshine,EM radiation, knowledge - take your name pick) and says gravity, time (your watch tells where the sun shines), space and countless others like choice are inventions for glamour. But 'shit' there is also no choice and so and so no change is possible. weep weep!

Susan Moriarity

I believe my ancestor John Moriarity was born April 1823 in county Kerry. My grandfather (also named John Moriarity) said the family comes from the Castlemaine area. John appears to have arrived in Boston, MA on the Conrad (from Liverpool) in April 1848, at age 25 and married a woman named Mary Sullivan in 1853 (whom John may have met on the ship to America). At some point after arriving in America and before being naturalized, John added the "i" before the ty to his (and my) surname. I'd love to find John's parents or any other of my Irish Moriarty kin. I looked through the Catholic baptism records on Ancestry, but there are so many John Moriartys being born in Kerry around 1823, and I have no way of knowing which one is my ancestor, since I don't know his parents names or exactly where they're from in County Kerry. Would greatly appreciate any tips on how to narrow down the search.

My Moriarty ancestor to the US was John Joseph Moriarty born 5 Jan 1865. I lose track of him in the US after 1898 when he disappears without a trace nor family knowledge. I feel he may have returned to Castletownbere, Co Cork but I cant trace him there either. He was a sailor by family trade and could read/write and worked as a clerk and bartender in Providence RI.

The O’Shea story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The O’Shea surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.

The O’Shea story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

I am looking to learn more about my great grandmother Mary/Maria Sugrue. Presently I am at a standstill in my research due to the inability to find records related to her. What I know is: A) Mary was born around 1835. This is based on the age indicated @ her death. B) She married Patrick Rahilly(Rahely) on July 13, 1857 @ the RC parish of Sologhead. C) Mary died @ the birth of their 6th child on MAy 5, 1867. Beyond that what I know is based on info relative to her husband (my great grandfather) Patrick Rahilly. For example records indicated they lived @ what is known today as Newtown Ellard in Cty Limerick. I've seen ref. to this town as Newtown Templebredon as well. I have been unable to find any Sugrue's in the area in the time frame. I have made contact with family (Rahilly) still in the general area today but they also know nothing of her beyond her name. Three of her six children immigrated to Fitchburg, Massachusetts, USA in the mid 1880s. They appear as Reilly in the US (immigration paperwork issue never corrected) of which I am one. Any suggestions or shared knowledge would be greatly appreciated
