On his travels to Granard to visit Kittt Kiernan,did Michael Collins ever use either The Inny Junction or Float railway stations. I was told this over 55 years ago but Ican find nothing to say so . Mike
I’m descended from Thomas Kiernan, who was born in August 1788 in Granard. I think he married a woman called Bridget, but I haven’t been able to confirm that. They emigrated to South Australia in 1840 with 2 daughters (Anne & Mary) and 2 sons (John & Thomas). These children were born in Castlepollard, County Westmeath. I have info about their life here in South Australia, but would love toi find out more about their life in Ireland.
A Thomas Kieran of Granard had a son John in 1822 (JANUARY). This could be your Thomas’s son and then grandson he married C Brady. My family McManus (MacManus) married into the Brady, Conelly and Kieran families. This birth record was in my information. Hope it is useful.
Hello Isobel. Thank you for the information, however it’s not my Thomas or John – I have John being born in 1830 and emigrating to Australia and marrying a woman with the surname of Hickey in Victoria.
I also have people with the name Brady, McManus & Connolly in my family tree. The Irish certainly traveled all over the world! Thanks, Jenny (Adelaide, South Australia)
Hi Jenny. I m a descendant of Thomas Kiernan. His son Thomas married a Margaret O,Neill .
I don’t have any info on John ,except that he married Anne Hickey. A daughter became a nun.
If you have any info. Either after their arrival or about any family in Ireland I’d love to hear
