County Waterford coat of arms

Visitors are spoilt for choice in warm Co. Waterford, which is arguably the most popular destination for domestic Irish tourists. This is thanks to Waterford’s seemingly endless sunshine (or as close as you get in Ireland!) and its perfect beaches that stretch along the far southeast coast of Ireland.

Waterford is best known for its famous export, Waterford Crystal. Though the company went into receivership and its full production was moved offshore after the 2009 economic downturn, a new visitor centre opened in Waterford City in June 2011, with demonstrations of glass blowing and crystal production, as well as a small retail shop.

Glass blowing, Waterford Crystal Visitor Centre

Waterford City itself is a wonderful destination full of lively pubs, quaint shops, cafes and historic sites, such as Ireland’s oldest civic building, Reginald’s Tower, as well as several worthwhile museums. But the county’s coastline is certainly its biggest draw, and with good reason, for the beaches here are unspoilt, sun-kissed stretches of sand. A number of resort villages dot the coast, including Tramore, Dunmore East, Dungarvan and Ardmore, all of which offer great swimming and recreation along several Blue Flag Beaches.

Lismore Castle, Lismore, Co. Waterford

The pouring in of so many tourists to the county's coast has left the north side of Co. Waterford far less explored. The Comeragh Mountains stretch down through the heart of Waterford, culminating in the pristine waters of Lough Coumshingaun, a crystal clear lake surrounded by tall, rocky crags. The mountains provide plenty of fodder for walkers, while the stark Nire Valley is the perfect place for adventurous rock climbing. The picturesque Mahon Falls comprise a steep 80-metre waterfall that can be accessed via a walking trail from the R676.

Thomas Francis Meagher – a politician and, later, American Civil War general that created the Irish tri-colour flag – was born in Waterford, as was William Hobson, the first governor of New Zealand. The county has also produced more than its fair share of footballers, including John O’Shea (Manchester United), Daryl Murphy (Celtic), Noel Hunt (Reading), as well as cyclist Sean Kelly and Olympic medallist runner John Treacy.

My great x 4 paternal grandmother was Honora Sullivan born in County Kerry abt 1820. She married Francis Morrissey. Their daughter, Ellen, my great x 3 grandmother was born in County Kerry in 1841, she married James Thomas Keane and they immigrated to New Zealand, settling in Temuka. I would love more information about my Sullivan ancestors and to make family connections. Please contact Debi - debij.18@gmail.com

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.

My Great Grandfather, Abel Anderson Butler, came from Massachusetts and settled in Mississippi around 1850. I believe his family previously moved from Ireland to Massachusetts. He was born around 1820. I have traced his ancestry back until then but I have hit a dead end. I plan on making a trip to Ireland so I would like to find out more information about my ancestry.

Cherilyn Carroll

Hello Gail Ryan, you wrote this to a Jenny Miller (no dates). "My great-grandfather Patrick Ryan and great-grandmother Bridget Treacy came from Borrisoleigh, and also emigrated to Queensland in ~1880. They got off the boat in Townsville, and spent their lives in Charters Towers. Perhaps we are related - Borrisoleigh is not a huge town!! My name is Cherilyn, my maiden name Cherilyn Ryan. My great-grandfather (Michael Ryan) was the twin brother of Patrick Ryan, your g-grandfather. My g-grandfather's name was Thomas Ryan and he married Anne Russell in June 1899 (or it may be 1880 - hard to tell), in Borrisoleigh, Tipperary. The town seems to be spelt differently sometimes - Borrisleigh. Sometime after that date in 1899/ 1880, the twin brothers, Thomas and Patrick, came to Townsville, North Queensland, Australia. I know my grandfather's side of the family, i.e. his parents Thomas and Anne Ryan, lived on a cattle property/ station at Calcium/ Reid River/ Toonpan/ Woodstock area - all tiny little places, more like localities really. My grandfather, and in turn my father were both born at Calcium. Woodstock is the largest village and does have a tiny school, but not even a pub! Those areas are not too far south of Townsville (now a city of 150,000 or so). Some of the Ryan's still live on that original property - there are four houses of Ryan's still remaining there. Personally, I don't know them. On my grandfather's (Michael Ryan's) birth certificate, his father Thomas Ryan's occupation is listed as lime-burner. I can't find anything that may relate to Thomas and Patrick's parents or siblings though, those who remained in Ireland, or Thomas and Patrick's dates of birth. I also can't find the date they emigrated to Australia. I was wondering if you had any information on them at all? Perhaps a photo of Thomas and Patrick together, I wonder if they were identical twins. Your g-grandparents, as far as I can tell, lived in and around Townsville all their lives, Charters Towers is quite a bit further away, well in those days of horse and cart anyway - 137km away. Gold was found in Charters Towers at one stage and perhaps they went off to the gold fields for a time. On your side of the family - I have a small "The Ryans - Family History" booklet regarding the offspring of Patrick and Bridget, formerly Tracy (spelt that way in the booklet). They had 9 children, and this particular booklet, it says, was "compiled for the Ryan Family Reunion, 27th September 1997". One of my father's aunts must have given it to me, and some of them must have kept in contact with their cousins - your side of the family. This booklet then goes on to name and give commentary on Patrick and Bridget's third born (May 1885 in Townsville), their son Thomas Patrick Ryan, who married an Alice Isabell MacDonald. It appears they had 12 children!! Your g-grandfather Patrick's occupation was listed as labourer when his son Thomas Patrick was born, according to the booklet. There are two photos in the booklet of your g-grandfather Patrick Ryan and his wife Bridget Ryan, no date on the photo though. There is also another photo of your grandfather (4 generations it says), dated 1939. Anyway, I was wondering if you could help me with any more history of on g-grandfather Thomas Ryan and his twin brother Patrick Ryan. As an aside, lime was found on that property at Calcium, also a large cattle station, and it was called the Ryan Lime Company. To this day, lime is still quarried there, but no longer owned by the Ryan's. The quarrying operation was sold decades ago and my grandfather and grandmother (Michael and Eileen Ryan) moved to Brisbane in the 1940's and built a number of shops and a small supermarket (there were no large ones back in the day) in an inner suburb of Brisbane (Queensland's capital). I have also travelled to Ireland in 1979 (and again in 2019, 40 years later). My boyfriend and I, now husband, went to see my grandfather's cousin in 1979, we were with an Irish mate in Nenagh, Tipperary (my boyfriend worked with him in London), whose mother knew my grandfather's cousin - a small world. They had a lovely home on a farm, a quite large double story house - sadly, I can't remember their names, but they lived quite close to Nenagh, where our mate came from. Anyway, this thread doesn't seem to have any dates or years on it, so hopefully I'm not writing this and it goes off into the never, never! Cheers.

My x 3 great grandfather was James Michael Ryan, born in Galway, Ireland abt 1819 (unsure of whether his birthplace is correct). He must have immigrated to Australia at some stage if he was born in Ireland (perhaps with parents). His father was Michael Ryan born abt 1797 in Ireland. His mother is believed to be Honora Shaulsy / Shanley / Brien (in some connected records) birthdate unknown. He married Sarah Ann Kennedy in Australia and then moved to Timaru New Zealand where he drowned in Saltwater Creek in 1867. I am unable to go back any further and would love to make some family connections and get more information about our ancestors, please contact Debi - debij.18@gmail.com

My 2x Great-grandfather. James A. Ryan was born in Thornback, Kilkenny, Ireland 9 Sep 1832 and died in Piatt Co., IL, USA 29 Dec 1900. He had a sister, Agnes, who died a spinster in Troyswood, Kilkenny, Ireland 05 Oct 1907. I am trying to find if he had other siblings. I believe his parents to have been William and Bridget Kirwick Ryan who both died in Ireland, but I am not positive where.

My great grandfather Michael Ryan Raymond, was married to two Margaret Ryans (Moneen and Sean Eamon), with a total of seventeen children, the offspring of which includes large conclaves in Australia and USA. His grand father was also Michael Ryan (1764) married to Johanna Kilfoyle. They hailed from Foilnacanna in Upperchurch, but my g. grandfather moved to Glenough, and we still have a strong presence on the old ancestral lands. You can view the school attended by our family since it was established in 1856 by visiting Glenough Schoolhouse on Facebook. Regards, Don Ryan .

(Part 1 of 3) The Ryan 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 Ryan 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 Ryan 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 Ryan 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.

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.

His father Joe came over from the potato famine/genocide, but back in Ireland the genealogy trail runs dry. The McCarthys of Ontario were involved in the famous Donnelly massacre, and moved very shortly after to Chicago, where my grandfather was born. No-one was ever accused of the crime - everybody hated the Donnellys apparently.

My grandfather James Flynn was brought up in a farm called Flagfield near Geevagh. I think that there was also connections with the Fallons; I believe there was a Fallon who was a cousin of my grandfather.

I looking for all men named William Wall who had a son namedJames born between 1830 and 1835. When James emigrated to the US he stated that he came from County Kilkenny. His mother's name was Mary surname unknown and his father was William. I have found only one RC record which would match up name and date wise and that is Mary Farrell and William Wall 10 OCT 1827 at Gowran and William's address is Templemartin. A later record shows children named James. Edward and Margaret. Any information that can confirm or deny this connection to James Wall who emigrated to Boston, MA in 1850 would be appreciated. James was my great grandfather. I do have the Wall Genealogy by Hubert Galwey. My aunt was one of the original subscribers to that work. I am guessing that we are descended from the Coolamuck Walls but would love to be able to make definitive connections if I can. Alice

Power

Henry"Harry" Power was born in Waterford 1819/1820. His father is believed to have worked as game-keeper to the Marquis of Waterford, this is where Harry learnt his excellent riding skills, he was always around helping in the stables, they gave him riding lessons and they trusted him with any of the horses. Harry was transported to Tasmania (Van Diemen's Land) Australia in 1842 on the convict ship "Isabella" under the name of Henry Johnson Index number:36754 Record ID: Name_Indexes: 1405820. About 1847 as a free man went to New South Wales, all was good until 2 drunken troopers stopped him and drew on him, from there he was in & out of jail & became a bushranger. He was an excellent horseman and became one of Australia's famous Bush-rangers. He was also mentor to Ned Kelly, teaching him how to ride to avoid the law. There is a look-out in Victoria named after him, Power's Lookout. Harry never killed anyone, he was known as the gentleman bushranger. I cannot find any information of him in Ireland. I believe his mother was Anne McGuire (her maiden name). Harry Power died in Swan Hill, Victoria on the 11/10/1891.

Morrissey

Michael Morrissey - born around 1812 or earlier and immigrated to Castle Garden, New York and arrived on May 30, 1836. He reported himself to be from the Parish of Muckalee, Kilkenny, Ireland. He left Dublin and went to Liverpool, England, then sailed to America. He reports that he was a farmer, but I'm leaning towards "laborer". He was illiterate and poor. I have no idea how he was able to come to America, being poor. He sailed on the ship "New Orleans" with no other family member I could see on the passenger list. He was reported to be 22 at the time he came in 1836, but on his naturalization intent in July of 1838, he reported himself to be 23. I'm almost certain he was Roman Catholic. He ended up coming to Indiana soon after arriving because that is where his naturalization intent was recorded, (Tippecanoe, Indiana). He was found in a census in Union, Fulton, Indiana in 1850 and was reported to be 38. He married Jane Mendenhall in Fulton, Indiana. I found a death record of a Michael Morrissey who died in 20 June1861, who was from Ireland and birthdate unknown. He is buried in St Mary's cemetary in Lafayette, Tippecanoe, Indiana.

So I’m a double Keane from my father and Killion from my mother who was from County Roscommon. There’s a great book about Killasser which contains amazing information about a number of my relatives including my great grandfather who was headmaster in the 1870s and who helped many of the local farmers set up a cooperative that took them from great debt to no debt, I was very proud! I was born in England and live there now but was brought up in a traditional Irish catholic family and visited my Irish cousins regularly as a child and since and feel very Irish. We have very dark hair, my sister’s hair is jet black, with pale complexion and green eyes so we look very Irish too.

(Part 1 of 3) The Keane name has a long history in Ireland, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. The Keane story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup D2] can trace their beginnings 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 Keane surname origin is from the Cenél Conaill [R1b-L513, Subgroup D] who found the Dál Fiatach.

(Part 2 of 3) A group will also found the Kingdom of Ercing in Wales as trade with Romans will become essential around 300 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 Keane story begins in pre-history Ireland but this line and many of his kin will move to Wales, then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

I descend from Redmond Carey/Carew of Otonabee Township, Peterborough County, Ontario, Canada and he is descended from the Woodinstown, Co. Tipperary. The Woodinstown Carews are related to the family of Lord Carew but are not descended from that line. They have a common ancestor. I've been probing into this Carew family which was centred on Waterford City. Very difficult to figure out their origins. Are they New English settlers from Devonshire who arrived in early Stuart times, or with Cromwell or in his wake. Are they Old English (Norman) settlers with ties to the great English Carews? Are they Gaelic in origin, linked to the Mobarnan Townland, Co. Tipperary? Fascinating questions. Anyone interested in these Carews, I would love to hear from you.
