red mail Riverton - (Ballynahow - County Kerry)
One of the few snippets of family law passed down to me is that we are the "O'Connells of Causeway and Riverton". The O'Connells of Riverton are mentioned in Basil O'Connell's "O'Connell Family Tracts" (1850) but he said he was unable to locate the actual townland. Basil relates a story of a Wake at Cahirciveen which was attended by the O'Connells of Riverstown, near Ballynabloun, in the Glen. The Irish name for Riverstown would be "Baile na hAbhann" which literally means Town of the River and would be pronounced Ballynahown. and the closest townland to Ballyabloun of a similiar name is Ballynahow which is an O'Connell townland. In the Ordinance Survey (Griffiths) Census in the 1850's Ballynahow is listed as being in Killemlagh parish but in an earlier census commissioned by Daniel O'Connell M.P. (The Liberator) in 1835 the corresponding townland in Killemlagh parish is named Riverton.

red mail Hanging at the Cross - (Kilbaha - County Kerry)
Hanging at the cross where the streets meet in Newtownsands. Told by Con Shine (carpenter). Written by J.B. Connell (NT Moyvane) My father remembers the white boys. There was a landlord in Kilbaha called Wall. There was another in Moyvane named Sands. Sands knew the names of all the white boys in the district. So did Wall. The white boys trusted Sands. But they were afraid that Wall would tell all the names. So they decided to do away with wall. Wall was afraid of them. He made up his mind to take a house in Glin and went the Kerry line to Glin . But he came back by Newtownsands way. The white boys watched him they attacked his house that night and the firing went on till morning. In the morning they set fire to the house and Wall was burned to death. 200 soldiers came from Limerick the following day. They were to kill everybody they met. But Sands met them over on the Tarbert road near Johnny Nashs and told them not touch anybody that he would have all the white boys arrested that he knew them all. The soldiers did no harm then. They went to Kilbaha and the first they met were my father and my uncle Johnny threshing in the haggard. Sands said they are two honest boys, they're a widow sons they never did harm to anybody. And so they did noting to them. My father was about 18 at the time. Sands gave the names of all the white boys and they were arrested and tried in Tralee. Three of them were sentenced to be hanged one of them was ordered to be brought to Newtown to be hanged his name was Neill (Nayle). He was the ringleader he was hanged in Newtown by the soldiers. They drove 2 poles in the ground below at the cross and put another pole across they then put him standing in a horses car put a rope around his neck then pulled away the car and left him hanging there. He was hanging there all day. The soldiers use to come often and give him a swing for sport and leave him swing away for himself. All the doors were shut that day. You would not see a head out the door. In the evening they took him down and carried him to Tralee in a car. But they lost him above at Shea`s height Clountubrid. They turned back and found him again and carried him to Tralee. The other two were hanged in Tralee on of them was Mulvihill. I do not know who the other man was. Wall lived in Kilbaha where the road turns up to Kennelly`s house. Note Michael Mulvihill tried Tralee 3rd march 1809 .He set fire to Walls House . Executed 29th July 1809 . Danny McMahon claimed that Wall was not at home the attackers set fire to his house took the child from the maid and tossed it into the burning house. Wall in Kerry Evening Post of 10 March 1860, 4 Nov. 1908. Murder of James Wall/sentencing of John Neil to hang, Jan. 1809 Special Commission. 'Mr. Wall was a respectable gentleman, residing near Newtownsandes .Freeman's Jn., 4 August 1809: 'Michael Mulvahill found guilty of the murder of James Wall and John Scanlan, to be execute on the same day' (July 29, ); executed with Michael Murphy (see Tisdall op.cit.)

red mail Lynch Family - (Kilgarvan, and Parish - County Kerry)
Hi I am tracing my Lynch ancestors who are in the 1901 and 1911 Irish census in Meelick, Kilgarvan, County Kerry. Denis Lynch married Margaret Haley and they had several children including Thomas Lynch, who in turn married Honora Sullivan in 1882. They had Denis (born 1882), Margaret, Mary, Patrick, Thomas Michael, Johanna, Jeremiah, Honora and Catherine. Denis moved to Wales and married Annie Sophia Godwin. His siblings moved to Chicago, USA and England/Wales. I think some stayed in Ireland. Would love to hear from anybody who is tracing the same lynch people. Many thanks, Gemma

red mail Neligan, Meenleitrim, Knocknagoshel, Co Kerry - (Knocknagashel - County Kerry)
to quote Ray Marshall of the Kerry List "Prior to the 1820's, when Griffith built the roads, there were no roads in Kerry in the area roughly between Abbeyfeale (in Limerick) and Castleisland and the Limerick/Cork borders. This area include Knocknagoshel and Meenleitrim North and South, and of course, Brosna. Therefore, after the construction of the roads much lease land was put up for sale. Many poor people who learned how to save when they worked on the roads were able to purchase leases and are found to be quite prosperous after the famine. A study of population figures in the area indicates little population loss during the Famine." any details on the Neligan Meenleitrim,North, Crinny Co Kerry
