I have so many fond memories of wonderful holidays in Borrisoleigh and the great characters I met. My grandmother was Ellen Quinn (nee Devaney) and I am the niece of Jim Quinn. My Mum Janie Quinn was born in Chapel Street in 1923 the oldest of 9 children. My uncle Mick is the only one left now sadly. They are all much missed. I am on holiday in Borris in June and I can't wait to return it has been too long since I was last over.

Hi, My great grandmother Brigid Loughnane was born in Shanakill Borrisoleigh in 1828, one of four children. She married John Pratt, one of 8 children, from Drom-inch in 1874. They had one child, my Grandfather George Pratt a baker, like his father, in Templemore. I would love to know something about both the Pratts and Loughnanes. Thanks in anticipation x

My GG grandfather John Ryan and a number of his siblings came from Mountkinane to Victoria Australia in 1850s and 60s. His parents, Martin Ryan from Mountkinane and Mary Ryan from Fantane married in 1821. Martin Ryan died in the 1860s and his wife migrated with the youngest daughter Johanna who was married to a Hogan. Mary Ryan is buried in Dookie Cemetery, Victoria, with a number of her children. I suspect Martin's brother, John Ryan is buried in Glenkeen cemetery. Can anyone enlighten me further? Thanks, Elizabeth eamcdonald@ozemail.com.au

Hello, I am searching for a copy the English translation of Mairéad Ní Ghrada's play An Triail, On Trial. I see your dramatic society has staged it recently and I would greatly appreciate if you had a copy of the English. I am writing my MA on the most successful, but mainly forgotten female playwrights of the Abbey Theatre. I have just 3 weeks left to complete and am struggling with the text in Irish. Thank you, Marita marita.gorman@ucdconnect.ie

I know that my father's cousin was Nora Stapleton of Pallas Street and who I met once in the 1980s and corresponded with until she died. She was working at the convent at the time. She never met my father but she wrote to him when he was younger. I am trying to trace my grandfather who was Patrick Ryan and whose father was Michael Ryan. However, I do not have his date of birth or where he was actually from so can't continue my search. I also know the name Mary Dagg as a relation. My grandfather Patrick Ryan married Mary Ellen Riley in Liverpool in 1944. I would love to hear from anyone with any information joan.jones22@outlook.com

Hello from Camperdown, Victoria, Australia. CONGRATULATIONS on your Fantastic and very informative Website! I am researching my Great Grandfather Denis Ryan who was Baptised in 1859 and was from Cronovone. Denis married Margaret Gleeson from Silvermines. They emigrated to Australia in 1884 settling as Dairy Farmers in Swan Marsh, Victoria. They now rest in peace, buried at Colac, Victoria. Margaret passing away 15.2.1925 at age 65 and Denis passing away 6.7.1935 at age 76. Denis was the son of Martin and Honora Ryan. Martin stayed on in Cronovone with his other son Patrick and Patrick's wife Bridget and their 10+ Children. Martin passed away on the 15th of November 1908 at the age of 85. I have gathered the above information from Baptismal, Death and Census Certificates. I am wanting to find information of the Farm at Cronovone and any Irish descendants from the Family still living in the Cronovone Borrisoleigh area. gerard@gerardryanelectrical.com
