BELL MOYVANE: Freemans Journal 1763-1924, 20.03.1856, page 3

The novel and interesting pontifical ceremony of blessing of a Church bell was performed in all its solemn forms on Palm Sunday, at the chapel of Newtownsandes, in the North East of County Kerry, by the Right Rev. Dr Moriarty. The bell, which was manufactured by Mr John Murphy, of Dublin, is a very beautiful one. It was placed on a platform before the altar in the Sanctuary. The local clergy and a large multitude of people, who seemed to take the deepest interest in the proceedings, were in attendance on the occasion. The Bishop addressed the congregation a touching and suitable discourse, which was listened to with almost breathless attention. It was the first ceremony of the kind performed in Kerry since the reformation and the bell is the first Church bell tooled in the parish of Murhur since the same period.

Dublin’s “freedom bell”, the first Catholic Church bell to ring in Dublin in breach of the Penal Laws 200 years ago,

Fr Michael Blake defied penal laws by tolling the bell in 1811, 18 years before Catholic emancipation. He faced charges, but was successfully defended by O’Connell, then a young lawyer.

Legend has it that O’Connell rang the bell to celebrate emancipation in 1829, creating the crack which remains visible today.

BELL: Philadelphian John Sartain claimed the U.S. Liberty  Bell cracked while celebrating passage by the British Parliament of the Catholic Emancipation Act of 1828.

FR. MATHEW came to Newtownsandes on Sunday 10 of Oct 1841. The Kerry Examiner gave a list of people who donated Money to Moyvane(Newtownsandes) New Church on the day of Fr Mathew visit: Rev T Mathew gave £25.25. P Cheevers Listowel £4. Knight of Glin £1. R.Q Sleemon Glin £1. Rev TL McDonnell Listowel £2. A Murry Listowel £1. James O Halloran Colnaleen Listowel 50p. Rev Lyddy PP Abbyfeale £1. Rev D Leahy Glin 50p. Rev. B. M. Maher P.P. Glin £1. William o Leary Glin £1. Miss Sergent.

WILLIAM FITZGERALD of Lahardin, Co. Clare and Moyvane, Co. Kerry and had issue:  1.  Thomas, Lieutenant, 40th Madras Native Infantry, b. 19 Jan 1804 at Kilmanaheen, Co. Clare, served at Coorg 1834, d. unmarried 11 Jul 1834 at Ootacamund. 2.  George, b. 1805, d. 1812.

FROM: The Times 12th July 1879

We have to record the death of Captain Stacpoole, M.P. for Ennis, which occurred on Thursday night at his residence, Carlisle-square, Chelsea. The hon. member had been ailing only a few days. Captaoin Stacpoole was the eldest son of Mr. Andrew Stacpoole, of Ballyalla, county Clare, by his marriage with Diana, daughter of Mr. D. Finucane, of Stamer-park, in the same county, was born in the year 1830, and was educated at Cheltenham College and at Trinity College, Dublin. He was for some years a Captain of the Clare Militia, and also a magistrate for that county, but about seven years ago was “superseded” in the commission of the peace at his own request. He had sat for Ennis in the Home Rule interest for upwards of 19 years. Captain Stacpoole married Miss Mary Ann Catharine Winifred Hennessy, eldest daughter of Mr. Charles Hennessy, of Leamington, Warwickshire. His death causes, of course, a vacancy in the representation of the borough of Ennis.

DEATH: The Times 16th September 1980. Mr. Edmund Painter Stacpoole, CBE, who died recently at the age of 78, deserves tribute for the selfless and matchless service he gave to Britain’s parliament, government and press as the Lobby correspondent of the Press Association for 30 years.

He joined the PA from the Southend Times in 1924 and was sent to Westminster in 1936. From then until his retirement after the general election of 1966 he carried the immense burden of that job day and night, serving morning and evening papers, entirely on his own. Never once during those years of receiving non-attributable briefings and private confidences did he betray a trust. Nor did his patience ever reach its limit, even at times of intense pressure like the Suez crisis of 1956.

Staccie, as he was known to prime ministers and PA messengers alike, played a vital part in giving the PA its reputation for total reliability. With it all, he possessed great kindness and an exceptional sense of humour. And his generosity made him pick up a junior colleague’s dinner bill as readily as he would share his knowledge with him.

His marriage in February 1979, to Enid Hanson give his last 18 months an exceptional dimension of happiness.

DUEL: Limerick General Advertiser Feb. 2nd   1808 ; Wednesday last a meeting took place at the Spa Ground, near Listowel, co Kerry, between Henry Cashel Esq of Ratanay, and William Hughes, Esq Barrack-Master of the Listowel District, in consequence of some misunderstanding which existed between the parties—Many Gentlemen present endeavoured to reconcile matters, but to no purpose, as Mr. H. would not yield, nor would his antagonists; whereupon they exchanged shots at twelve yards distance, fortunately without effect, when the Seconds and Dr. Franklin, rushed between them, and by perseverance prevailed on the two gentlemen to shake hands.

GOAL MATCH: Limerick Chronicle 24th 8 1825

http://members.iinet.net.au/~nickred/newspaper/np_abst63.htm

A wanton and barbarous outrage was committed on Sunday last, on the person of an elderly man of the name Neligan, in the neighbourhood of Listowel, at one of those goal matches which usually disgrace the Sabbath and frequently terminate so fatally. He was a spectator on this occasion from a short distance, when four or five of the contending party approached and struck him with hurlies on the head—he fell and was trampled on, while blows were repeated with pitchforks, until death put an end to his sufferings. The only possible pretence that can be assigned for this murder is, that he was unfortunately connected with a party against whom his assailants cherished a hostile feeling or grudge from some old encounter.

THOUGHT

I have wept in the night

For the absence of sight

That made me to others' needs blind

But I never once yet

Felt a pang of regret

For being a little too kind.

 HARTNETT: Biography of Rev. Jeffrey Hartnett, from: Memorial & Biographical History of Dallas County, Texas, 1892, p. 373.

 

REV. J. A. HARTNETT, Rector of St. Patrick's Church, Dallas, is a native of Erin's Isle, county of Limerick, Ireland and a son of Daniel T. and Hanora (Donough) Hartnett. The father died in Weatherford, Parker county, Texas, in July, 1890, aged seventy years, and the mother now resides at the homestead in that county, aged sixty-eight years. They were the parents of twelve children, eight of whom are still living:1. Thomas D. Hartnett, a railroad contractor through Texas, Missouri, Alabama, Mississippi, and is now in Indiana on a contract for a railroad leading from Chicago East

2. Michael D. Hartnett, a hardware and farm implernent merchant of Graceville, Minnesota

3. Cornelius D. Hartnett, a wholesale grocer of Weatherford, being the senior member of the firm of C. D. Hartnett & Co.

4. Bridget Hartnett, wife of Charles Nolan, a farmer of Ankeny, Iowa

5. Margaret Hartnett, wife of John Hartnett, a railroad contractor and farmer near Weatherford

6. Augustine Hartnett, an Ursuline nun of Dallas, and known as Madam St. Mary Augustine

7. A. Hartnett8. Daniel D. Hartnett, a retail grocer of Weatherford.

 

  Rev. J. A. Hartnett's father's half-brother, John F. Meagher, is ex-Governor of Minnesota. Daniel T. Hartnett was a man highly respected for his honesty and industry, and his children grew to mature years under the best parental influence, as is evinced by the business tact and high standing of each. They are all persons of prominence in their line, and are respected by a large circle of acquaintances.     Rev. J. A. Hartnett came to America with his parents in 1863, and to Texas in 1871. He was educated at St. Mary's College, of St. Mary's Kansas, and his theological studies were pursued at St. Mary's Seminary, of Cincinnati, Ohio. He was ordained July 5, 1891, and first served as assistant at the Pro-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, located at the corner of Bryant and Ervay streets, Dallas. Two months later be was appointed to his present position, which he has filled successfully and satisfactorily. His congregation is increasing rapidly, and in fact, has almost doubled since his pastorate began. Since early life Father Hartnett has taken kindly to theology, his reading and studies.

HARTNETT, JEFFREY ALOYSIUS (1859–1899). Jeffrey Hartnett, first priest ordained in and for the Catholic Diocese of Dallas, son of Daniel T. and Honora Hartnett, was born in Ireland on April 20, 1859. He was less than four years old when he came with his parents, brothers, and sisters to America. Apparently in heavy debt, the family lived for a while "in the North," moved south and west as Jeffrey's father became a levee and railroad contractor, and arrived in Texas about 1870. They stayed for a short time in Texarkana and Clarksville and finally settled in Weatherford. Jeffrey helped his father at work and eventually became his bookkeeper. He participated in the construction of several railroad lines in Texas-the Texas and Pacific, the Houston and Central Texas, and the St. Louis Southwestern (Cotton Belt).

Once the family was out of debt and firmly established, Hartnett felt free to pursue ecclesiastical studies. He attended St. Mary's College in Kansas and St. Mary's Seminary in Cincinnati, where he received a master of arts degree in 1891. He returned to Texas and was ordained at the procathedral in Dallas by Thomas F. Brennan, first bishop of the newly founded diocese, on July 5, 1891. He spent his first two years of ministry at Dallas and Paris, Texas. In 1893 he was sent to Ennis, where he built a church. In 1896 he was assigned to St. Patrick's parish, where he completed a large brick-and-stone church started by his predecessor. In late 1897 he was appointed rector of the procathedral in Dallas and immediately applied his building and managing skills to the construction of the present cathedral. In early 1899 a smallpox epidemic broke out in Dallas, and Hartnett took upon himself the duty of attending to the spiritual needs of the disease victims at the pesthouse six miles away.

On the night of February 11–12, 1899, an unprecedented blizzard hit Dallas. The upper Colorado, Brazos, and Trinity rivers froze solid, many cattle died in West Texas, and the Gulf region suffered a hard freeze. Answering the call of spiritual duty, Hartnett walked to the pesthouse at the peak of the blizzard to administer last rites to a dying woman. He contracted smallpox, and on March 7, 1899, he died. His death deeply affected many people in the Dallas area. Expressions of regret were sent to the newspapers by a wide variety of organizations, from the Dallas City Council to the Ancient Order of Hibernians to the Dallas Freethinkers Association. The Dallas Morning News remarked: "No death which has occurred in Dallas for many years, has occasioned more general regret than that of Rev. Father Hartnett." A true Christian folk hero, Hartnett soon became known as a "martyr to duty" and was the inspiration of poems, stories, and popular devotion.

POPE in Kenya:

Sr Mary Killeen rsm of the Mukuru Centre in Nairobi.

Pope Francis was due to meet Irish missionary nun Sr Mary Killeen in the Nairobi slum of Kangeme as part of his final day in Kenya before he travels on to Uganda.

The Mercy Sister is due to make a five minute presentation to the pontiff ahead of the announcement of financial assistance for a project selected as a memorial of the Pope’s visit.

Over half a million people live in the cardboard-and-tin slum in Nairobi, one of the city’s poorest and most densely populated, and lacking adequate sanitation and water services.

Most of these people have left their rural homes because of poverty and came to the city in the hope of finding work.

Some are successful but the majority, being unskilled and uneducated, remain jobless.

They live in very poor shacks made from cardboard or plastic material while those who are a little better off have houses made from corrugated iron sheets or similiar substances.

These one-roomed houses are approximately ten by ten feet and have no sanitation or running water. There is no waste collection and most of the waste, household and other, goes directly into the nearby river.

About 60% of Nairobi’s population live in slum conditions. Slum dwellers pay rent for their shacks to landlords who ‘own’ the land. The amount varies from US $12-25 per month depending on the location of the house.

Vicki Hunt (Wednesday, 01 July 2015 13:16)

Hello,

I have been searching for information on a Herlihy family....who were from Kerry/Listowel. Ellen and Patrick Herlihy had 5 children.. Patrick, Cornelius Anne, Tim and Mary. Mary was born around 1929 and immigrated to Canada in 1950, landed in Nova Scotia, then made her way to Montreal where she stayed for a couple of years before moving on to Toronto. Any information would be gratefully appreciated......Mary's middle name was Theresa. There is no record of a marriage for her, but she had a significant other at one point whose name was Michael Kelly, who was also from Ireland. Thanks!

KEYLOD: I checked the Valuation Document for Keylod. At the time of Griffiths John Sandes was renting it along with Heffernans from William Sandes. John Healy took it on in 1867 and held it until 1892. Nobody then until 1898 when Bryan Galvin took it. He only held it for a year. Next up was a John Moloney. Then Maurice Corridon came along in 1912. He purchased it from Sandes in 1914. Maurice must have died young because his wife Nora became the owner in 1920. She died around 1944 and then it was in the name of James Corridon from 1946 until 1955. Then Michael Corridon until 1958 when Jeremiah Clancy took over.

Before Griffiths Primary Valuation was published there were a ISLANDANNY: Interim books. When they compiled the first book John Moloney hadn't yet come back from Monagay. Instead there were five Moloney households on the farm in Sluicequarter. The farm was shared by Thomas (jun.), Denis and Daniel. Then Thomas (sen.) and Michael were renting small plots from the three younger men. Thomas Sen. didn't pay any rent for his plot and he also had the "grass for one cow". He was obviously the father of the three men who shared the farm. I'm not sure about the exact relation of Michael to the others. He may have been a brother of Thomas (sen.) but maybe not. I knew of him already - he continued renting his plot until the 1870s. (The plot is basically what became Goulds later - also known as The Jury.)

When they revised this book a year or so later all the changes had been made. The names of the three brothers and their father are crossed out. And John Moloney's name has been added. So I think Thomas (jun.), Denis and Daniel must all have headed off to America. And Thomas (sen.) had presumably died. He is the Thomas whose name is on the old headstone in the Old Abbey cemetery in Abbeyfeale. It was probably his death that put all the other changes in motion. I have no doubt but that John from Monagay was an elder brother of these men who left.

STAMPS: From Peg Prendeville . An interesting incident happened last week in the library. A reader, originally from the UK, but now living in Glin has taken up stamp collecting and bought a large batch of old stamps from some other collector.  He came in to me with an envelope dated 21st November 1933 addressed to a Mr Tom Kit Culhane, Ballygiltenane ( sic) and was wondering if that family was still in the area. It turns out that he was Tom Connolly’s grandfather. It was an interesting find even if the envelope was empty! I do not know where it has been all these 82 years.

New Zealand Tablet , Issue 43, 26 October 1899, Page 9

KERRY.— Death of a Venerable Nun.— The death of Sister Mary Gertrude O'Connor (known for upwards of a generation as Mother Gertrude), of the Presentation Convent. Listowel, is an event deserving of more than local or ordinary notice (says the Daily Nation.) For nearly 51 years this truly excellent lady occupied a prominent and honoured place in the religious life of her native county. Entering the Listowel Convent on the 15th of August, 1849, her religious life may be said to have synchronised with the life of that distinguished branch of the great Presentation Community, and the remarkable growth of that Convent, both in usefulness as an educational institution and in size, is in no small measure due to her influence and labours. Mother Gertrude was born in Tralee about 76 years ago. Her father held a commission in the British Army, served with distinction under Moore and Wellington, and the hero of Corunna is said to have died in his arms. The Very Rev. John O'Connor. D.D., who, for many years occupied a prominent place in the clerical life of his native diocese, and was one of the organisers of that brave band of Irishmen who went to the assistance of Pope Pius the Ninth in the early stage of his struggle with the infidel makers of modern Italy, and who, led by his fiery missionary zeal went abroad while yet a young curate, where he died some years ago, was a brother of Mother Gertrude. Another distinguished brother was Dr. Morgan O'Connor who died universally respected and regretted a few years ago in Wagga, New South Wales.

 

New Zealand Tablet, Volume XXVI, Issue 16, 26 August 1898, Page 9

Deaths Amongst the Clergy.— Death has been particularly busy among the priests of Kerry latterly. Following closely on the demise of Canon O'Sullivan, of Dingle the Very Rev. T. Sullivan, Administrator of Tralee the Rev. J. Fuller of Castlegregory the Very Rev. J. Quille, of Bonane the Rev. J. Kielik of Ballyferriter, comes that of the Rev. Michael Godley, pastor of Glenbeigh. The deceased was 55 years of age, and was about 28 years on the mission. He was a native of Ballyheigue, and received his education in the Irish College, Rome, where he had a very distinguished career. He has been stationed at Lixnaw, Listowel, Ballybunnion, and Dingle. From the latter parish he was transferred about 12 months ago to the pastoral charge of Glenbeigh, in the room of the late Rev. T. Quilter.

Discovery "of Human Remains in an Ulster bog.— An extraordinary discovery was made in Clonmacfeliny bog about two miles from Lisnaskea, by a man named John Todd. Todd was engaged cutting turf, and under the fifth floor he came on a very peculiar looking object and also some bones. The discovery was at once reported to the Lisnaskea Police. The remains were afterwards conveyed to the Lisnaskea Workhouse, and an inquest held by Major Winslow, coroner for the district. Dr. Knox said he had examined the remains, and he believed them to be human. He was of opinion that they must have been in the bog for a great number of years, as the bones were almost all disintegrated, the skin remaining intact, owing, he would say, to the preservative qualities of the stratum in which it was found. The jury returned the following verdict That the said remains found in Clonmacfeliny bog on the 4th June, 1898, are human, and as they are supposed to have been there for a great many years we have no means of ascertaining the cause of death.

THOUGHT: The smallest things become great when God requires them of us; they are small only in themselves; they are always great when they are done for God, and when they serve to unite us with Him eternally. François Fenelon.

LETTER FROM THE LIBERATOR.

 Kilkenny, 25th October, 1846.

 My dear Ray—It was at a late hour in the afternoon of yesterday that I was able to leave Fermoy, and, therefore, only reached Clonmel ; I left that town after the last Maas to-day, and remain here for to-night, and consequently cannot possibly attend the Association tomorrow, which I regret not a little. " Among other things I am apprehensive lest any mistake should occur respecting what are called the Cork Resolutions.

" On that subject there has appeared, I presume, in the Southern Reporter of yesterday evening a letter of mine, and I should be exceedingly sorry if that letter was considered: my answer to the resolutions. It was intended to be little more than a complaint against the indefinite and indistinct nature of the resolutions themselves.

" My answer to the unwise request contained in those resolutions will, I trust, be ready on Monday week, the 2d November.

"I have not leisure to enter into any other topic' though even if I had time I should scarcely be able to do so. My mind ought to be entirely absorbed with the pitiable and deplorable state of the people—aggravated as that state is by the inexplicable negligence of the Board of Works.

" What that Board is justly condemned for is this— that in many instances where the special sessions have acted under the Labour Rate Bill, and cheerfully passed presentments to a very considerable amount, in some instances no work, and in many instances very little of the works have been commenced. It would really be better if there had been no special sessions at all, because, by holding these sessions, immediate expectation of wages was held out to the people, and in their hunger they are irritated almost to madness by the delay and disappointment. "My mind is so full of this subject, that I cannot help adding that there is no excuse on the part of the Board of Works for this delay and disappointment. I must say it is a most gross neglect of duty on the part of that Board.

"I repeat, the conduct of the Board is quite inexcusable in reference to the baronies that have cheerfully passed presentments, because, in the first place, the Labour Rate Act gives unlimited credit for money to carry on such works. And in the second place, there is no danger of any money being lost, as the repayment is secured upon the entire property in the barony, the amount sought being in general one year's poor law valuation, and the fee simple of the barony, worth forty years' purchase at that rate, is pledged for the repayment of any monies to be expended by the Board under the Labour rate Act.

"I can scarcely restrain myself on this subject, and will say no more for the present than that things are in the most deplorable state that was ever yet even imagined.—Believe me to be, very faithfully yours,

"DANIEL O'Connell. " T. M. Ray, Esq."

FROM,House of Commons; CIVIL AVIATION. HL Deb 26 November 1946 vol 144 cc332-412

LORD STRABOLGI; I have flown with my wife for upwards of 50,000 miles. I made a voyage by Springbok Air Line to South Africa and back at the beginning of the year. I have been on several excursions to the Continent of Europe by air. I have flown across the Atlantic, across the North American Continent to Mexico, down Central America, right down the west coast of South America, across the Andes to Argentina, then back on the South Atlantic route to London by the British airline, by way of Rio de Janeiro, Port Natal, Dakar, and Lisbon. I have flown on American, Mexican, Czech, Dutch and British airlines. I want to say—and I am sure that this is the experience of everyone who has flown in foreign planes as well as our own—that in such matters as working efficiency, care of passengers, general excellence of equipment and accommodation, the British airlines are streets ahead of every other.

RECORD FLIGHT, LONDON TO BERLIN AND BACK

Evening Post, Volume CXI, Issue 86, 13 April 1931, Page 10

ACHIEVED IN ONE DAY

(Received 13th April, 2 p.m.) LONDON, 12th'April. Captain Neville -Stack,, regarded-as Britain's ablest civilian' pilot, accompanied by Mr. J. R. Chaplin, to-day established a record by flying from London to Berlin and back in one day, a distance of 1250 miles. The flying time; was 628 minutes; He used a Vickers-Napier air-mail carrier in, which he will shortly attempt a record: flight from London to Australia, and back.

ENGLAND TO AUSTRALIA, OUT AND HOME IN 21 DAYS

Evening Post, Volume CXI, Issue 100, 30 April 1931, Page 11

CAPTAIN STACK'S AIM

United Tress Association—By Electric Telegraph—Copyright. LONDON, 29th April. Captain Neville Stack, with Mr. J. H. Chaplin, in an open two-seater machine, left Lympne at daybreak in an endeavour to fly to Australia and back in 21 days.

Interviewed, Captain Stack said Commander Kidston has shown the Post Office how the air mail services to South Africa may be improved.

"We hope to point the same lesson, and even go a stage further; we may beat Mr. Anderson Scott's magnificent record on the outward flight, but that is not out object. Our motive really is to demonstrate the urgent necessity for a regular fast service to the eastern -portions of the Empire.

"It is useless to use comparatively slow machines for mails. It is possible to run a regular mail service to Australia in ten days instead of the present fifteen. "Our experimental schedule is what a single machine can accomplish. Relays of men and machines could outdo this easily." Mr. Chaplin was aide-de-camp to Lord Byng when the latter was Governor- General of Canada. He comes from a millionaire Vancouver family.

Commander Kidston flew from England to Cape Town in 6 days 10 hours. Anderson Scott completed his England- Australia flight in 10 days and a few hours. A previous message stated that Messrs’ Stack and Chaplin would fly in a Vickers-Napier 135 mile-an-hour mail carrier.

NOTE: It was recently reported that, in order to demonstrate the practicability of .a fast air mail service within the Empire, Captain Neville Stack proposed to make an experimental flight with mails to Australia.

The airman hopes to fly to Darwin and back in 21 days, only one of which would be spent at Darwin. He intended to use a Vickers bomber, converted as a mail carrier, with a top speed of 150 miles an hour. The Associated Chambers of Commerce proposed to send letters to all the Australian Chambers of Commerce, and efforts were being made to induce the Post Office to frank the letters as air mail.

NOTE: Parents of Neville Stack came from Knockanure.

The County of Kerry Agricultural Show was held in Listowel on Tuesday, and taking all circumstances into consideration must be regarded as a successful exhibition. The weather was favourable, and the attendance of the public, particularly in the evening, was extremely large. All the arrangements were well attended to and left very little to be desired. Mr M W M'Elligott, hon sec, with the capable assistance of Mr E J Gleeson, was responsible for the management and  discharged his duties in a highly satisfactory manner. The same observation applies to the other officials, all of whom appeared to give general satisfaction. With regard to the exhibits, the entries in the horse section were large, and some of the animals were of an excellent class, while numbers were not up to the mark. The entries in the cattle department were not so large, but the quality of the exhibits showed an improvement on last year. The sheep entered were fairly good, and the pigs exhibited, though not large in number, were of a particularly good class. The butter section afforded some first class exhibits, the fowl and honey departments very little interest was taken though some of the exhibits were of a good quality. Of the exhibitors Messrs Philip Healy, G Mullins, and J F Shea were most successful. Mr Healy won a number of prizes, while Mr Mullins bud  Silver Beam, retained his title as champion of the county for three years in succession. Mr Shea , Glenbeigh got first prize for his handsome black filly, Biddy, and would have been awarded first prize for his bay gelding, Tommy, in the remount class but for the fact that he was disqualified for being " docked " They are both by his own horse, Hampton Moor, a sire that is sure to make his mark. The fily should distinguish herself in the hunting field or between the flags. Mr J J Galvin, Listowel, offered a number of special prizes for which there was keen competition. The number of industrial exhibits in connection with the Show, though not numerous, were interesting. Messrs McKenna and Kennelly, Listowel, and M MCowen, Tralee, had an imposing display of agricultural machinery, while the Derrymore Tweed Mills were also well represented, and their exhibits attracted considerable attention.

SANDES FAMILY.

http://sandesancestry.net/sites/default/files/documents/Sandes%20Ped%202.pdf

(0705) of Cloonbrane, pronounced ‘Clonbran’, who must have been born by 1668, married his first cousin Mary, daughter of Thomas Blennerhasset of Ballyseedy and Littor,  Co.   Kerry,  and  his  wife Ellen,  another  daughter  of Anthony  Stoughton Of Ballyhorgan . John and Mary had six children. In 1699Johnwas named by the Commissioners of Co. Kerry, together  with his brother  William,  in  connection  with  raising  £120,000  on  all  lands,  hereditaments  and tenements in the kingdom, and in 1727 he witnessed the deed by his mother and brother Lancelot, mentioned above. In 1732 he was party to a lease concerning lands in Co. Kerry and a marriage settlement for his son Thomas and Bridget Fitzgerald.     In 1727 and 1732 he was living in Limerick. Ballyseedy is 2 miles south-east of Tralee, and Littor some 6 miles west of Ballylongford, but the location of Cloonbrane is not entirely clear.   There is a village  of  that  name  south-west  of  Carrigafoyle  near  Ballybunion,  and  letters  were addressed to Cloonbrane ‘near Tralee’ at least once.   But it is more likely to have been, as shown on Petty’s Map of Kerry in 1655,   in the parish of Moyvane - Knockanure close to the  north-east  of  Moyvane,  which  is  about  five  miles  north-east  of  Listowel,  and  near Glenalappa,  another  Sandes  landholding. Cloonbrane means ‘Meadow  of  Evil  Odour’which comes  from  the  steeping  of  flax. The village of  Moyvane  is  now  known  as Newtown Sandes, and in 1992 I found a farm a few hundred yards south of the centre of the village, which the occupant, Mr Stack, said was Cloonbrane. The farmhouse probably dated from the early 20th century, and Stack pointed out where the old house had stood,close  between  his  house  and  a  massive  old  stone  barn  towards  the  road.  He  also mentioned that his brother had ridden Red Rum, the famous horse.

BOOK: Ballylongford - A Photographic Memoir Volume 2; [9780957020177]

by Nancy McAuliffe; Irish, Irish Interest - Ballylongford - A Photographic Memoir Volume 2

Ballylongford - A Photographic Memoir Volume Two is a continuation and expansion of volume one, in which a panoramic yet intimate view of one of the most historically rich villages in county Kerry was outlined. Volume two, which includes photographs from the late 1890s up to the 1980s, moves out from the centre of Ballylongford village to encompass Ahanagran, Ballyline, Ballymackessy, Killelton, Lenamore, Lislaughtin, Mortara, Pulleen, Rusheen, Saleen, and Tullahinell. Families that have long been associated with these areas, and those that are now gone, are represented in photographs that depict the changing lives and times of Ballylongford natives and visitors. The early history of Lislaughtin Friary - or the ‘Abbey’ as it is fondly known - is outlined by Dr Mary McAuliffe, whose essay shows that Lislaughtin was of central importance to the people of the area from its very first days. Also highlighted is Saleen Quay and its role in the commercial and social life of the village. Images of Communion and Confirmation days - special times in the lives of the children of the parish - not only feature the children themselves, but also reflect the fashion and customs of the times. The heart of each parish is its people, and Ballylongford - A Photographic Memoir Volume Two brings to life Ballylongford over the past 100 years or so in its depiction of families, friends, neighbours, weddings, sports, teachers, and schooldays.

Cheered by 50,000 enthusiastic spectators, Kerry on Sunday last at Jones' Road won the Croke Memorial Medal from Louth, the present holders of the All-Ireland football -championship. Greater enthusiasm was never displayed than when the gold and green sweaters of the Kingdom (Gaels emerged victorious from historic Jones Road. J. McCarthy, of Cork, was referee.

 

The cablegram "reached me at exactly 12.30 p.m. Sunday,  and the thousands who attended the Claremen's games at Celtic Park were delighted to hear the result that afternoon.- A full report of the great contest will appear in these columns! next week from Daniel McCarthy, ex-captain of the Kerry football team of Now York.

 

The weather was rather threatening during the past week. Though no great quantity of rain fell, the atmospheric conditions in Tralee district were not altogether favourable,  The bright sunshine of this day was an agreeable change.

Farmers require fine weather now to carry on the hay saving operations. A great deal of hay is cut down at present in every part of the country. We understand that Mr. R. D. Murphy, Auctioneer, Tralee, has disposed of the residential holding at Glenduff, near Tralee , for the trustees of  Mr. John Conway Hurly, at a large figure, to Mr. H. Walsh , solr., in trust;

 

Among those who have sailed for Ireland are:—Miss Josephine Shea and Miss Ellen Curran. to Cahirciveen; Mr. Maurice Boland, to Dingle; Miss Bridget Browne and Miss  Katherine Leahy, Miss Nora Dowling and Miss Margaret O'Connor, to Listowel; Miss Julia Noonan and Miss Mary Noonan, to Rathmore; Miss Margaret Keane and her sister, Julia to Kilmorna.

The Derry County Insurance Committee, at a meeting in Coleraine, temporarily appointed Dr. Adams , Jr., Garvagh , their medical officer, at a salary of £200 yearly. !

The Derry people are not as liberal as we are in Kerry. They think £200 a year is enough for a Tuberculosis Officer; but we have fixed the figure at £650.

 

INTERNET: GM wheat that may improve the quality of life for celiac patients has faced opposition from anti-GMO.  Norero then quotes from blog post by Jose Miguel Mulet, a Spanish plant scientist from CSIC:  "How can it be that a technology created with Spanish public funds end up in the hands of a private American company? Because of the aberrant anti-GMO European law. No European or Spanish company is interested in commercially developing this wheat due to obstacles in the authorization process…The result: licensing rights have been acquired by the…Dow Agrosciences, given that the authorization process in the United States is much easier."

DOCTOR on the internet; DirectLabs, based in Mandeville, Louisiana, offers more routine tests like a $29 metabolic panel -- glucose, kidney, fluids, electrolytes, calcium and liver -- and a $49 measure of Prostate Specific Antigen, which the company says can be used to detect cancer.

STUDY: University of Chicago President Robert Zimmer on Sept. 30, 2015, announces a $100 million donation from the Pearson family to form the Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflicts.

Commissioned on September 30, 1954, it first ran under nuclear power on the morning of January 17, 1955.

COLUMBAN Newsletter extract; The French film Des Hommes e Des Dieux (Of Gods and Men) depicts the last days of a Trappist monastic community in Tibhirine, Algeria, where seven of its nine monks were kidnapped and assassinated in 1966, during the Algerian War. The monks lived in a predominantly Muslim environment, and while living a life of contemplative prayer, also offered medical and other services to the peaceful neighbouring village community. The film depicts a dialogue and discernment among the members of the monastic community as to whether they should stay or leave when their lives were threatened by a fundamentalist group operating in that area.

 

That film gives us some idea of what Columban and his monks experienced when they were in conflict with the local Frankish kings. Those conflicts finally resulted in the expulsion of Columban and the surviving Irish members of his community. Columban did not want to leave; he had lived more than twenty years in that area. However the king’s soldiers forced him and his companions to journey as far as Nantes, and to be placed on board ship for the return voyage to Ireland. However, as his biographer relates, the ship ran into a sandbank and the captain eventually refused to sail with the monks on board. So Columban was able to journey again by a different route across northern Europe, to the Rhine and further south to Italy

THOUGHT. And each one should confidently make known his need to the other, so that he might find what he needs and minister it to him. Francis of Assisi

NEWSPAPERS: Kerry Sentinel 25-2-1899 page 4 reports on the selection of a candidate for the Tarbert district of Kerry County Council. This is an edited version.

The Chairman G B Fitzgibbon proposed the following resolution, which was seconded by Mr. John Moran, Leanmore, Ballylongford, and adopted : That as Mr. M. J. Nolan publicly stated at Leanmore that he would not submit to the decision of a convention held in Tarbert for the purpose of selecting a representative on the County Council, we now adopt Mr. T. M. O'Connor as candidate, and call on the Nationalists of the seven divisions of the Council district to give their united support against the jobbery so strongly and justly condemned by Judge Shaw and the people, and which has made the name of the Listowel Board of Guardians a bye word throughout Munster (cheers).

Mr. T. M. O'Connor, who on coming forward was received with cheers, said that his name had been submitted for their acceptance, and it was necessary for him to say a few words (you're welcome). When the Local Government Act had been passed he stated that he would not come forward as a candidate for the County Council, but having been pressed by a number of electors, some of whom were voters in Kilcolgan and Tarmons who had voted against him at previous elections, he consented to allow his name be brought forward, and relied on all classes of the electorate for their support. If they considered that he would not faithfully and diligently promote their interests they had the remedy in their own hands, and no matter what the result of the contest which was being forced on the division would be they would not be the worse friends (cheers). He had nothing to gain, but something to lose, by contesting the division. He did not want to force himself on the people. He had been a guardian for a few years, and during that period endeavored to perform his duty honestly. His experience of public business was by no means pleasant. He fought many a hard battle with the ruling ring, and was howled down by the force of the majority. Still he endeavored to do his duty against odds of which the outside public could form no idea. People reading the newspaper reports of the meetings of the Board of Guardians believed that the members whose names appeared were present during the transaction of the whole business of the Board. Some guardians were credited with being connected with the jobs which were from time to time perpetrated, though, as a matter of fact, they might have left the meeting hours before the job came on, which was usually at the tail end of the proceedings, when the jobbers were in a large majority. He had in his hand a list showing a few of the most flagrant and glaring abuses of public funds accomplished by the ruling ring of the Listowel Board of Guardians, such as the medicine contract, the Ballyduhig cottage, and the seed supply, the abuses connected with which had been so severely criticized by Judge Shaw directly at the Listowel Quarter Sessions and indirectly at Killarney. By the medicine job the ratepayers had to pay 20s for drugs which could be procured from other respectable druggists for about I6s. The public were familiar with the details of the Ballyduhig cottage. They knew how a man, the father of six children, handed in a representation for a labourer's cottage in '92, and how, when the cottage was built in '97, he was ousted by a beardless boy in the employment of Mrs. Browne. Was that doing justice to the labourer whose cause the chairman of the ring and his senior lieutenant, Mr. E. Walsh, V.C., who piloted the cause of the beardless boy with more bluster than intelligence, were now so vigorously advocating. The Local Government had asserted that the action of the " ring" in the matter of the Ballyduhig cottage was a proposition of the powers vested in the guardians under the Labourers' Acts. With regard to the seed supply, the senior lieutenant of the " ring" was voted £18 by his pals, but Judge Shaw considered that £5 would handsomely remunerate him for the wear and tear of his body and mind (laughter and cheers). Mr. Nolan, who championed the ratepayers at Presentment Sessions, was instrumental in throwing out a piece of flagging in Tarbert which would cost about £5, but three months afterwards —also, of course, in the interests of the ratepayers—he was instrumental in getting one of the largest ratepayers in Tarbert to propose an expenditure  for the flagging of Newtowndillon, amounting to  £95. That action might be regarded as inconsistent in another man, but it was in keeping with Mr Nolan's whole record, which was a catalogue of inconsistencies (laughter and cheers). They were all familiar with Mr. Nolan's action with regard to the proposed railway from Tarbert to Listowel via Ballylongford. He publicly solicited subscriptions for the purpose of opposing a grant of £100 at four per cent to enable the promoters to compulsorily acquire land. He stated at the Assizes that he would not oppose the railway if the line ran close to Gale Bridge —a route which would entail an additional outlay of £15,000 on the original estimate. The additional outlay was light when they considered the personal advantages which Mr. Nolan's would enjoy by the deviation from the original plan. There was another matter of serious importance to the ratepayers. He referred to the striking of the rate of '97, by which the ratepayers of the Listowel Union lost about l.75d in the £ perhaps for ever owing to the bungling of the " ring." He (Mr. O'Connor) strongly advocated the necessity of adopting the clerk's estimate without alteration, as he was aware that the rate of '97 would be taken as the standard year under the Local Government Act. Mr. M. S. O'Connell also favoured the adoption of the Clerk's estimate and seconded his motion, which the chairman refused to accept, and thus deprived the ratepayers of £500 annually. It looked as if there was an object in the chairman's action, as the " ring" reduced the rate of Newtowndillon by 11d in the £, while they refused to reduce a single penny in the Tarbert division at the following meeting. He would not enumerate other jobs and blunders. In conclusion be thanked the meeting for the cordiality of their reception, and promised, if elected-, to act as a consistent Nationalist, to expose jobbery wherever it came under his notice, to cut down expenditure and promote all projects tending to develop their industries, and to afford employment, and would never act the flunkey (cheers).

A hearty vote of thanks having been passed to the chairman, the proceedings terminat

THOUGHT ; Courage! Open your hearts and judge not those around you who would appear weak or poor by human standards. Make no distinctions in the way you treat people. Do not turn yourselves into judges. Instead let your eyes and ears be open to the Word of God telling you that each and every one of us is a beloved child of his. The Kingdom of God is open to all. It is a place free of distinctions or favorites....

RECENT DINGLE LICENSING SESSIONS.

TO THE EDITOR.

Moyvane House, Newtownsandes,

25th November, 1902. DEAR. SIR,—On the day after seeing Canon O'Leary's letter on the above—Thursday last—I wrote him explaining my presence at the Dingle Sessions, and asking him to set the matter right on my behalf with respect to the licensing taxes. He invites me to make my explanation through the Press. The facts of which I have made Canon O'Leary aware are these: I  had promised a clergyman in the district for some time past to spend a few days with him. I went out to his place on Thursday evening, and went into Dingle on Friday to see a gentleman on business. I took a seat on the Bench as I was entitled to do and to vote if I choose to do so. When the magistrates retired to their room I went with them with a view of getting the benefit of their deliberations in some cases where special legal points had arisen, but I at once intimated I did not come to the Sessions to vote, and I would not vote, as can be proved by the records of the court, I did not vote. I hope this letter will get the same publicity that Canon O'Leary's letter has got.—Yours faithfully,

M. J. NOLAN

MILITARY COURTS: The Galway Observer, 30th September, 1922

Steps to secure the public — ministry's plans — powers for dealing with present position The government has sanctioned the setting up of Military Courts or Committees to deal with persons charged with interfering with the restoration of order or endangering the public safety.Every such Tribunal is to include one member certified by the Law Officer to be a person of legal knowledge and experience.

The offences which these courts are to try include attacks on the National forces, arson, looting, destruction, and possession of arms, ammunition or certain explosives, without authority.

Tribunal Powers. There courts are empowered to inflict the death penalty in extreme cases. The punishment in other instances is cited as imprisonment or a fine, with or without authority imprisonment.

Dail Eireann Approves of Government Motion.

There was a long discussion at Dail Eireann on Wednesday on the Government motion authorising the creation of Military Courts, and investing the Army with other powers to deal with the present situation.The motion, on a division, was approved of in principle.

Vigorous speeches were delivered by members of the Ministry. President Cosgrave declared that if murderous attacks took place, those participating in them must learn that they would have to pay the penalty.

Mr Desmond Fitzgerald, Minister for Foreign Affairs, said the reign of law was going to be enforced.

Dealing with a suggestion by Mr Fitzgibbon, K.C., the President said that neither he nor the Minister of Defence would object, in cases where the death penalty was imposed, to having the papers laid on the table of the House, the sentence to take effect within four days unless the Dail passed a resolution disallowing it.

UPHELD BY THE LOVE AND COMPASSION OF JESUS

At some time or another, every follower of Jesus is faced with trying circumstances, very difficult decisions, very great sorrows, very powerful tempations.  Here are a few examples of the kind of things that the modern follower of Jesus might have to cope with in daily living:

JOHN IS A YOUNG PERSON LIVING AWAY FROM HIS FAMILY HOME.  It is Sunday morning and he is in a warm bed.  It is raining and very cold outside.  Should he leave his bed and go to Mass?  He knows he will have to face the laughter of his mates as they take their “LITURGY OF THE WORD” straight out of the tabloids.  Will John be able to obey the gentle voice of Jesus calling him to come to Church and listen to the uplifting and encouring Word of God?

MARY IS SINGLE, WHO HAS BECOME PREGNANT: She is heading into a storm of protest from her parents and awful gossip for her nieghbours as soon as the news breaks.  Then she is offered a way out - a quiet abortion.  No one ever will know, but then she hears the gentle voice of Jesus saying that abortion is wrong.  Will she have the courage to listen to Jesus?

EILEEN - A YOUNG MUN WITH FOUR CHILDREN: Suddenly her husband leaves her for another woman.  She feels hurt and betrayed, lonely and very angry.  Then she hears the gentle voice of Jesus inviting her to trust.  Will she have the courage to allow the presence and touch of Jesus to guide and bless her and her four children through this awful time?

TIMMY IS A GARDA: A drug dealer offers him a very large amount of money, if he would turn a blind eye to his activities.  It is very tempting.  But then he hears the gentle voice of Jesus saying, “Do not participate in corruption”.  Will Timmy be able to heed the gentle voice of Jesus?

PAUL IS A COMMERICAL TRAVELLER: His work takes him away from home a lot.  One night he meets a very attractive woman.  He hasn’t been getting on of late with his wife.  No one will know if he is unfaithful to her.  He hears the gentle voice of Jesus reminding him of his marriage vows. Will Paul have the strength to listen to Jesus who tells him that adultery is wrong?

The examples are endless, but the point has been made at some time or another, all of us face very trying circumstances.  At those times Jesus will remind us that He is there to help, guide, and protect us.  May we ever be attentive to His gentle voice, always inviting and calling us to do what is right and good.  May His love and compassion continue to uphold us today and always.

THREE NEW SPECIAL MEMBERS: This is my third Sunday with you as your new Parish Priest and each Sunday to date I’ve had the joy of having a Baptism, welcome a baby in our Christian Family here in our Parish.  Please pray in thanksgiving for Kathleen Adeline Saccard, Woodgrove, Sive Christina Lyons Dromurhur and Sadhbh Kennelly, Leitrim West.  Bless them and their parents & families.  Welcome Sive, Kathleen and Sadhbh.

SACRED SPACE: As our Church in Moyvane is dedicated to our Blessed Lady we have a special sacred space erected for the month of August.  A petition box will be placed in front of the ‘sacred space’ for your prayers & petitions to Our Blessed Lady.  May Mary continue to guide, bless and protect our Parish.

Tralee Mercury 1829-1839, Wednesday, May 09, 1838; Page: 3

STEPHEN CREAGH SANDES ESQ. We recollect not when we had received a letter for publication, which has given us such pleasure as we felt, upon reading that which regards this excellent gentleman,  earnestly would we call public attention to that important document and more especially would we engage 'for it the attentive perusal of the landlords of Kerry. Let our landlords only imitate the tender-heartedness of Mr. SANDES to the poor whom he has generously raised to comparative happiness and our state of society will not be inferior to any in Europe.

 

Murhur, May the 6th,1838. TO THE PROPRIETER OF THE TRALEE MERCURY.

Sir—As your patriotic and independent Journal is the only medium through which every liberal act is promulgated, may I beg the insertion of the following lines in your columns.

In the village of Newtownsandes, there are upwards of a hundred poor families who, for a series' of years past, had not a rood of ground to support themselves, but depending on the adjacent farmers, who generally charged them from £5 to £6 per acre, for the most barren and impoverished part of their farms and that only for one or two crops.

To rescue these poor creatures from their debased and impoverished state, a scion of Sallyglin House, Stephen Creagh Sandes, Esq., has given them a farm of thirty acres, immediately adjoining the village, in lots of from half  to two acres each, at the moderate- rent of £1  10s per acre. The farm was hitherto held by one of the most respectable and independent tenants in this part of the country, who offered the same rent and a deposit of £300, which offer, to his immortal honour he refused to accept. We cannot too highly appreciate the benevolent disposition of this young  gentleman but when we reflect on the noble character of  his family in  general, but especially that of the  amiable and venerable Bishop of Killaloe  we cannot express  surprise at any good act emanating from his nephew. If every landed proprietor in Ireland acted similarly thre would be little necessity For poor laws or for our present Constabulary force. Peace, happiness and contentment would be substituted for the anarchy confusion and misery that now prevails.

To behold the joy beamed in aspect of these poor creatures, expressing their gratitude  and imploring the Deity to shower down his blessings on this amiable and benevolent gentleman, would soften the marble hearted gentry Who are indifferent, to the suffering's and privations of the poor.

MAURICE O'CONNELL.

Stephen Creagh Sandes (1778-1842), F.T.C.D., was elected a life member of the Dublin Society in 1815. His proposers were John Crosbie Graves and Thomas Ellis. He was a member of the R.D.S. natural philosophy committee 1824-31. Sandes was born in Sallow Glen, County Kerry, and married Mary Dickson in 1819. He stood out as a principled liberal in the conservative milieu of Trinity College, of which he became a senior fellow and bursar. Early in 1835 he seconded the candidacy of Reverend Daniel Murray, catholic archbishop of Dublin, for membership of the R.D.S. In the recriminations following the failure of Murray’s candidacy Sandes was dignified and restrained. Well regarded by Daniel O’Connell, he advanced arguments to him by letter of 5 April 1836 opposing the regulation of T.C.D.’s income by parliament. He was consecrated bishop of Killaloe on 12 June 1836 and moved to Clarisford House. Three years later he was appointed bishop of Cashel, where he served until his death in 1842.

HISTORY: Irish Independent 1905-current, Wednesday, May 08, 1907; Page: 8

 Dr. Douglas Hyde's campaign in County Kerry is being attended with most successful results, his reception in Tralee on Monday, night was of a very encouraging, character and when, he came to Killarney last afternoon the whole town turned out to welcome him.  At the Town Hall, he was presented -with a number of addresses, and in an eloquent speech, in reply, he outlined, what the present policy and aims of the Gaelic League are. He was very impressive when he, referred to the struggle for the revival of the Irish Language and Irish customs as a life and death struggle. The Gaelic League had opened the eyes of the Irish, people, to the awful precipice which was before them, that the yawning chasm below of Anglicisation, which he said, was only another name for national extinction. The  Anglicisation,   which was  being attempted in Ireland was a fourth-rate imitation of England.  and everybody knew that the man who imitated was  behind the person whom-he set  up as his  standard even the organ of the Independent. Orangemen had of late many favourable notices of what the League was doing., and Protestant ecclesiastics in high positions  had spoken favourably of it. Their movement offended nobody except the anti-Irishman.

The philosophy of the Gaelic League, Dr. Hyde  said is that in every , race there are certain racial distinctions, very subtle, but none the less very real,  and  the  attempt to force one race into the  grove cut out by another had  never  been a success in Europe, and never  would be.  No two, races in, Europe is there, in temperament  and racial nature so wide, real, and far-reaching a difference as between the Irish  and the English nations, and for Irishmen-to attempt to compete with Englishmen on the lines that come naturally and instinctively to Englishmen. but the reverse in us, is folly and madness (applause). They were now recovering in Ireland for the first time since the Battle of the Boyne  the soil of their own country, and thankful they ought to be to the men who had made that possible.

Now came the question as to what kind of people they were going to plant, on that soil. It would either' be a question of making Ireland a Shire of England, or of saying So, England I have no quarrel with you, but I refuse to take my ideas of civilisation from you. (.Loud, applause.) At present, Dr. Hyde said, he believed to going through the country gathering together every relic of the past as if they were the bones of their fathers, and thus building up, tier after tier, an edifice which would, yet, please God, enshrine the soul of an Irish nation. Dr. Hyde- paid a compliment to the Kerry Co, Council for the manner in which they had endeavoured to forward the cause of the Irish Language  and appealed to the people to aid the good cause.  The proceedings were presided over by Mr.  D. Moriarty, Chairman Kerry Co. Council. Addresses were read from, Killarney Urban Council, Killarney District Council and Board of Guardian, Killarney Gaelic League, Killarney  National Teachers Association, Killarney Sinn Fein Society, Killarney U. I. L, the pupils of the  Presentation Monastery School and the Presentation Convent School. The audience in the Town Hall included most of the representative men of the district. Last  night Dr Hyde was entertained at a, banquet in the Victoria Hotel.

THOUGHT: There are no unknown Christians, no insignificant sons of God. Each one signifies, each is a “sign” drawing the attention of the Triune God day and night upon him.

WATERLOO: Irish Examiner 1841-1969, Saturday, March 12, 1892; Page: 5

Sherbrooke, Quo., Canada. February 9.1892,  The funeral of the last survivor of the battle of Waterloo, Sunday, was unique in point of pomp, and also in the immense concourse of people that attended. The citizens of Sherbrook of all classes united to pay the last tribute of honor  and respect to the good and brave old man who had done his duty to his sovereign and his country, who had lived through the vicissitudes of a century and seen dynasties of king and many generations of nun pans into eternal rest. At 2 p.m. the open funeral car draped with the Union Jack and drawn by four prancing grey steeds hold by 113 many postillions in military uniform, drove up to the veteran's Into residence, immediately followed by the 53rd Battalion and their band under the direction of Prof. F Cline. The rich casket, covered with magnificent floral  tributes, was carried from the residence between the files of the military and deposited on the car in the presence of a silent multitude Among the many floral tributes sent by friends and relatives was to be remarked a beautiful wreath presented by Col. Morehouse and the officers of the 53rd Battalion, and another from the Veteran’s grandchildren with the inscription ' Grandpa,' The funeral cortege, consisting of thousands, was under the direction of Captain A L Grindrod and proceeded to the Roman Catholic Cathedral, marching to the military dirge rendered by the 53rd Battallion's band, in imposing requiem was chanted by a very large choir with Prof T K Doherty at the organ. Rev Father Charles E C Fissett, of St Patrick's Church, assisted by Fathers Tanguay and Lemioux, were the celebrants Thousands of men, women and children lined the sidewalks and galleries the whole length of Market and Wellington streets as the cortege passed to the cemetery. At the cemetery a filing party of 20 rifles of volunteers , under the command of Captain Addie, fired three volleys over the remains as they were laid in their last resting place. A number of friends and military men had come from _Quebec, Montreal, Richmond and other places to pay the last tribute to the gallant veteran and to sympathize  with the bereaved relatives. very many letters of condolence were received from afar.

Deceased was born in the County of Cork, Ireland, on the 1st of August, 1791, and in 1812 joined the Kerry Militia, thence entering into the 73rd Regiment of Foot in the following year. From the depot he went on to Holland, where his battalion was at that time serving thence he saw a good deal of service with the army under Genaral Lyndoh and was there when the whole world was startled with the news that Napoleon had escaped from Elba, and all the British troops were ordered into Belgium.

The battle of Waterloo soon followed and the 73rd took an active part in that terrible day of pounding, losing heavily, but young Shea came through untouched, though men were killed all round him. On the day after the battle the army marched on to Paris, and, on their arrival there, encamped outside the walls, and Mr Shea mentioned in a recent interview that he frequently saw King Louis XVIII and his party pass by the camp on the way to St Cloud.

In December the Regiment was ordered home, and landed on English soil at Ramsgate, and marching to Canterbury where they were received with unbounded enthusiasm the mayor and corporation, having no fear of temperance newspapers before their eyes, threw open the public houses to the men at the civic expense. The 73rd were not long permitted to enjoy the comforts of home life. After recruiting in Canterbury, they were sent off to India, where they remained for four years, during which Mr Shea saw a great deal of active service in field  operations against the native tribes. After four years of this duty the corps were ordered home by way of St Helena, When that famous Island was reached they heard of the death of its  occupant, and twelve men of the regulars were allowed to go ashore to see his tomb, and of this party Mr Shea was lucky to form one. The battalion proceeded to England and arrived safely. Shortly afterwards Mr Shea, then holding the rank of corporal, was honorably discharged from the service, and celebrated the event by taking to himself a wife.

After leaving the army he entered on civil pursuits until 1835, when the formation of a British legion to the aid of the Queen of Spain in her struggle against Don Carlos, revived his military ardor and he joined as quartermaster  sergeant of the 10th regiment. The legion sailed for Spain, and on arrival there were pushed out to the front and soon became actively engaged with the enemy. Shea took part in no fewer than twenty-six engagements during the progress of the campaign and relates many stirring incidents that came under his knowledge. Don Carlists were men of bravery and resolution but their valour was marred by gross acts of butchery, their leaders acting on the barbarous rule of giving no quarter to prisoners.

he held two valuable mementos of his service in the Legion, one of which is the Order of Isabella II., with the following certificate

 Conferred on Lieut. Maurice 0 Shea, for meritorious conduct before the enemy and particularly for gallantry at the attack on the enemy lines in front of San Sebastian on the 5th May, 1836. [Signed], DeLacy Evans. Commander-in-chief of the British auxiliary legion of Spain, at his headquarters, Sansebastian, 11th June, 1836 ¬

After the war lieut. Shea returned to Ireland and remained there until 1847, when he came to Canada. It was the trying time of with ship fever epidemic and contagion raged terribly in the vessel which carried him and his family. He lost four children and was himself very near to death. He served for some time in Captain Forfara troop of Constabulary raised in Montreal and on its disbandment obtained a position in the Montreal goal which he retained until recent date. A few years ago he removed to the city of Sherbrook where he has since resided in the upper portion of a little brick building on Market street, owned by him, the other portion being rented. Since then he has not been following any particular vocation but has been lending a quiet retired life receiving and visiting good old friends of whom he has a great number. Lieutenant Shea was twice wounded in action the first time in the campaign in Belgium and again in India, where he received a ball through the leg. Of all ths.t ho owned he probably valued highest the Waterloo medal with its rod and blue ribbon, having on one side  Wellington and Waterloo, June 18, 1815  and on the reverse George Regent.' On the edge is inscribed  Maurice Shea, 73rd Regiment. Montreal Star, February 9th.

FAMINE: The Irish Famine and the Atlantic Migration to Canada; The Irish Ecclesiastical Record 5th Ser. Vol.69 October, 1947, pp. 870-882.; CMSIED 305023

The Great Irish Famine of 1847 and the Atlantic Migration

which it set in motion mark a turning point of paramount

importance in the history of the Catholic Church in Canada.  The

distinguished historian J. H. Hammond in his monumental work,

http://www.dippam.ac.uk/ied/records/29620?s=

 

On leaving the quarantine station at Grosse Isle the fever ships

proceeded up the St Lawrence River into Lake Ontario.  Whenever

they stopped to unload their passengers, typhus and dysentery

appeared in alarming proportions.  It is true to say that not a

single rural district, village, farm or city in Upper and Lower

Canada escaped the ravages. Deaths in Quebec City numbered

1,137, including many of the inhabitants.  Through the zeal of

the local clergy, Fathers McMahon, Cazeau and Baillaragean,

later Archbishop of Quebec, homes were found for 800 orphans.

Some were placed in St. Brigid's Home which for more than a

century has been a haven for the indigent.  Montreal was a

second Grosse Isle. Here, at Point St. Charles, 11,000 lay sick

with fever.  Terror spread throughout the populace.  At Bytown,

now Ottawa, 1,000 were stricken; of these 200 died.  At

Kingston,  4,326 were admitted to the hospitals and feversheds;

of these 1,400 died.  At Toronto, where the authorities had time

to make preparations, the sick received better care.

Nevertheless, 863 died from the epidemic.  At Hamilton, and at

St Catherines in the Niagara Peninsula, at London and Sarnia in

western Ontario, events followed the same course, though numbers

were smaller.  Partridge Island, at the entrance to the harbour

of St. John, New Brunswick was a third Grosse Isle but with a

much lower death-rate.  Of the 17,074 immigrants who entered

here, including 2,000 from Lord Palmerston's estates, 600 died

on the Island and 595 died in the city s fever-sheds.
