After 12 months of serious searching I have been unable to find any connections to Doonbeg Village except that my great, great grandfather Sinon Nunan, was supposedly born there in 1820ish. His parents are listed as Timothy Nunan and Honora Killeen. It is said he attended Dublin University for a time but had to leave the due to being mixed up in some protest. Apparently he planned to go to the American goldfields but ended up in the Ballarat goldfields in Australia. He married Margaret Cahill at St.Francis' Church, Melbourne, Australia on 8-9-1853. Margaret was from County Clare Ireland and her parents are listed as Patrick Cahill and Mary Sullivan. Sinon died 15-3-1905 and Margaret in 1912 both buried in Charlton, Victoria Australia. If someone has a connection to a Nunan/Noonan from County Clare in the early 1800's I would love to hear about it. Michelle

Patrick DARCY - Ellen McGUANE
Looking for siblings and family info on Patrick Darcy and his wife Ellen McGuane. Patrick (Born 1780 1800) would be the son of a George or Henry Darcy.
Patricks sons would be George Henry, Michael, Patrick and John.
Son John, who was born in Jan 1827 or 1828 in Co Clare, went to North America circa 1850.
When John married Mary Moran of Co Kildare at Notre Dame in Montreal, Quebec, April 1854, the Notre Dame Parish record stated Patrick and Ellen Darcy were no longer alive.
Maria O'Farrell at the age of 14yrs arrived on board the "Conway" in Australia,the ship sailed from Liverpool 14th Oct 1855 she was alone & described as a nursemaid. Three years later she married Charles Heard Mazengarb,a former sheep thief, they had 11 children. Apart from County Clare & that she was a Roman Catholic & born 17th April 1841 I have no more information.Who were her Parents? Which village did she come from? Does anybody out there know?
Looking for connections with the O'Donoghue anme and variants for the Inagh/Ennystimon area of Co.Clare
Any information on the O'Connor- Fitzpatrick family in the parish od Clarecastle residing in the townlands known as Ballyea.my GGG Grandmother Anne O'Connor has a relation to a Bridget married Matthew/Mathias Fitzpatrick prior to 1-1840 as they had their 1st known child Bridget November 6th 1840, next would be Catherine"Kate" 1-10-1843, Anne 9-5-1845 may have married a Michael Maher and Ellen 11-15-1849. The family was still living in Clarecastle Parish as of 1880 when Catherine married John McNamara that September. I thought John was to be born about 1858 as I previosly thought that Kate was born in January 1854 from a 1900 US Census but as Kate was found to be much older I am not sure if John would be only 4 years younger or possibly 14, his father is a John also and I think that John( ggg grandfather ) may have a brother James and the name Patrick could be prevalent to any of these families as John and Kate's only child was named John Patrick b. 1883 NYC.
Looking for ancestors of William Quinn born in County Clare September 25, 1805, husband of Margaret Kelly Quinn.
