Looking for family photographs
This is a very long shot. Does anyone have in their collections have any photographs of my Irish ancestors from Killarney. One in particular is of Michael Lee (Leahy) born 1861 and was brought to England and settled in the Soho area. He married a Elizabeth Murphy born in Dublin 1871 the daughter of a Philip Murphy. Also his Father Jehimiah Lee (Leahy) who was a Tailor by trade who, besides Michael also had a son named Patrick. I would be eternally grateful for any photographs or further information on this family as I have met a big Brick Wall.
If anyone else is searching for ancestors in killarney, Cill Airne round about the 1800's and have been successful I would love to hear how and where you managed to get information going back so far. I have hit what seems to be a massive brick wall. Can you help please
red mail Father William Ferris,
I am looking to find a copy of "Traditional Game of Caid", a thesis written by Father William Ferris, probably in the mid-1920s. I believe he is from Killarney. He went to school at what was then Saint Brendans Seminary (now Saint Brendans College) and went on to become a curate at Rathmore, and later parish priest at Glenflesk (1938-43) and Ballylongford (not sure of the dates). He was a champion of the Irish language in schools and wrote several local histories. In addition to this, he promoted the revival of Gaelic football, helped found a team at Gneeveguilla in 1926-27. His aforementioned thesis on Caid has been referenced many times, but I have not been able to locate a copy after some extensive searching. If anyone knows where I might find a copy, I would be much obliged.
