Coat of arms County Louth

Located on the northeast coast of Ireland, Co. Louth is known as the “Wee County”, as it is the smallest county in the country, at only 826 square kilometres. Louth doesn’t really get the attention it deserves – most people simply pass through along the motorway between Dublin and Belfast, others might head to Drogheda, one of the county's two biggest towns, for an out-of-town birthday or a stag or hen do at one of the city's many questionable nightclubs.

Drogheda, County Louth

Co. Louth is full of legends and myths, namely the stories of Cú Chulainn, an ancient mythic warrior who defended the area from invading armies with monstrous zeal. Historically, Louth also played its part, first hosting invading Vikings and, later, the armies of Oliver Cromwell at the Siege of Drogheda (1649), a pivotal battle in the struggle for English control of Ireland. Among Co. Louth’s famous people are pop band The Corrs and poet and novelist, John O'Reilly.

Castleroche

Castleroche is a Norman castle located northwest of Dundalk, Co Louth.

There is plenty to see and do in the Louth countryside. Lough Carlingford, an inlet lake formed by an ancient glacier, hems in the north part of the county. If you hike to the top of 400-metre-high Slieve Foye, you can see across the lake into Northern Ireland and, on a clear day, all the way out to the Isle of Man.

Lough Carlingford, County Louth

If you want to explore some monastic ruins, head to Monasterboice, a monastery founded by St. Buite in the 6th century. Be sure to walk through the old cemetery, which has several fantastic, ornately carved Celtic crosses. Old Mellifont Abbey, near Drogheda in the south part of the county, was the first Cistercian monastery built in Ireland in 1142. It has a lovely garden and farm, as well as a guesthouse.

Monasterboice, County Louth

Co. Louth’s coastline is full of beaches, which are popular with birdwatchers and surfers brave enough to set foot in the frigid Irish Sea. Hillwalking and golf are obvious draws, but for something a little different, try a cooking course under the renowned chefs of Ghan House, a Georgian manor house in Carlingford.

Laytown races, County Louth

Drogheda, County Louth is also the resting place of St. Oliver Plunkett's head. On July 1, 1681, Plunkett became the last Roman Catholic martyr to die in England when he was hung, drawn, quartered and beheaded. His remains were subsequently exhumed. His head was eventually brought to Drogheda where, since June 29, 1921, it has rested in Saint Peter’s Church.

Martin

My 5th great grandfather George Martin reportedly sailed to Chester, PA in America from Ireland some time in the mid-1700s, before marrying Annah Cloud in Wilmington, DE in 1761 and settling on a farm in Hampshire County, WVA where he lived and raised a family until his death in 1806. I have not been able to trace his country of origin or parents across the pond and was hoping somebody on this site may have information on George Martin to share. My family lore says our Martin line were Scotch-Irish, which I take to mean a family from Northern Ireland that originally came from England or Scotland. My ancestry goal has been to trace each branch of my tree back to their country of origin. I have done that for all the women who married into my Martin line, but not yet for my Martins. Hoping somebody here can help!

I am looking for living descendants of Bernard Martin & Sarah, nee McGrath. Their son, Joseph married Sarah Frazer (or Frazier/Fraiser) in the Carnteel Catholic Parish, County Tyrone on 9 August 1843 (microfilm 1D/36) and emigrated from Liverpool 15 March1844 on the ship, Briton, to Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Sarah's sister, Jane, also emigrated with them. Joseph's shipping record has his native place as Drumlane, County Cavan and he came as an agricultural labourer. Have done extensive genealogy searches for Bernard and Sarah for marriage and children but to no avail. Visiting Ireland October 2018; would be great to link with relatives.

Eilir Wales101

The origins of Welsh and Irish Morgan families are different, and so, unfortunately, an Irish origin theory would not be relevant to the majority of Morgans who hail from Wales itself. In Wales, the surname almost entirely derives from Welsh patronymic roots - i.e. it comes from the given name of an ancestor who would have lived (depending on where in Wales that ancestor came from) generally somewhere between the late 16th and late 18th centuries (sometimes slightly later than this), and was adopted as a fixed surname by different families during that time. This would be the same for most other typical Welsh surnames, such as Jones.

Morgan

My Morgan Ancestry points me towards the Counties Cork and Kerry, and I do believe that the surname Sullivan may be prominent as well, in my family tree, but I haven't found any concrete proof, of this. However my knowledge of the Morgan surname has only taken me as far as London, England, in a time about 1892, as then is when my grand father Frank (Francis) Morgan was born. I lose the trail there though, because I am not sure of his birth records, or the names of his parents. He was found on the streets of London, practically a street urchin or orphan, and shipped to Canada about age 10 (in 1903) to be adopted or indentured with a Canadian family. This was done through the Catholic church based in Ottawa, Canada. He later married and raise

The Morgan name has a long history in Wales, but now DNA and some recorded history says their origin is from the Emerald Island. The Morgan 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 Morgan surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly, McDonald and Donohue in Ireland. The Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France according to research from the Centre de Recherche Bretonne et Celtique. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscript

(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 Rice story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. Many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

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.

Our Clarkes are from the Cnoc crock. Hilltop farm at Ralaghan fort, Kilann parish, Co. Cavan. Historian Rev. Philip OConnell, wrote that, along with OReillys, Clarkes were leading Clonkee barony family. Before their surname was Englished, Clarkes were Milesian OCleirighs. Our ancestors were likely kern swordsmen, serving Gaelic Irish chieftain Philip OReilly, Clankees lord. He was the OReilly, albeit briefly, in 1596.

I have flax growers noted in my Reilly tree. Edward O'Reilly born in 1777 was one. He had many children and one was Patrick. I do not know where he was born but I know he ended up in Carlow and married Winifred Noonan there. Are any of the siblings I have attached your kin?

Cheryl S Boyles

Hello We are looking for information on 2 brothers, Arthur and Johnnie/Johnny Boyles who came to the British Colony St Kitts, (from Ireland it was said) possibly in the late 1800s or very early 1900s. We are not sure of their year of birth but Johnnie/Johnny Boyles is the father of Gladys Boyles who was born in 1909. Based on this we estimate his birth to be between 1864 and 1870, could be a bit earlier or later. Gladys was born in St Kitts but moved to UK in the 1950s until her death in 1982. Her children, except one who still remain in St Kitts, also moved to the UK. Gladys is my grandmother. I inherited the Boyles surname but would like to know more of my ancestors.

(Part 1 of 3) The Boyle name has a long history in Ireland, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the south-west region of the Emerald Island. The Boyle 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 Boyle surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.
Reply

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 Boyle 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 had always heard, that some of the Duffys, who immigrated from Ireland, to America, (and who were Protestant) changed the name and added an "e" to indicate that they were Protestant instead of Catholic. My GGGG Grandad, Michael Duffey, immigrated from Londonderry in the later half of the 1700s, with his friend, Thomas Ramsey and actually fought in the American Revolution. After the war, he settled in Fayette county, PA and eventually migrated to Adams County, OH (via the Ohio River.) My father's name was Denver H. Duffey, born in Springfield, OH (10/01/1920).

(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 Donnelly 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.

Only his eldest sister, Jean O'Hagan, remained in Ireland. All other brothers and sisters moved to the states too. I would love to connect to distant relatives.

My maiden name is O Hagan. I live outside London with my husband and son but I grew up in Ireland. My dad was born in 1935. His family lived in Wexford in south east Ireland. I believe that there are some O Hagan families in Northern Ireland.

Phillip Hagan born May 15 1940 died October 11 2018. I was always told of our ancestors trip from Ireland and I've always wanted to go meet our family. Very far removed I'm sure. We have been in America for centuries now, but I would love to know for sure if we are part of the O'Hagen clan

I live in Argentina and my grandfather was born in Ireland. His name was Gerald and he studied in Trinity College. He came to Argentina near 1900/1915 to play fotball. I have a photography of that moment. My dream is to travel to Ireland and to get in touch with family members O'Hagan, Murtagh, Reynods & Ross. They were all my grandparents. Kind Regards
