  • Hello, Pat. My GGgrandfather, Patrick Walsh, was born in 1795, in The Rower, County Kilkenny. He died at 70 (in 1865) in Newfoundland and married in 1836. I think he was born in The Rower Parish, not far fron Ballyhale. It's not improbable he was related to the Ballyhale Walshes, or was even from there since I am related (via cousins in Australia) to Walshes who lived right on the border between Tipperary and Kilkenny, further away than Ballyhale. I wish more Walshes would do their DNA. Have you done your family tree yebt?

  • Hi, Richard: Thanks for responding. My DNA cousins in Australia (McGoverns) actually visited the ruins of the old Walsh house on the Kilkenny/Tipperary border (directed to the site by a man named Quinn). I see now that I will be shifting my attention to Gortnahoe. Was one of the 7 children a Patrick? My daughter visited the area while on holiday but could not find the site.

  • Mary Walsh (married Richard Grace) was my 3 great grandmother. Her father Edmund Walsh was my 4 great grandfather.
    All from my maternal ancestry from The Rower.

  • Hello, Mary: well this is the first contact I've ever had from someone who has ancestors from The Rower. I know so little of GGF's life that I don't know where to start. My family, unfortunately, was not much one for talking about ancestors. I'm the first to show interest. So, I don't know what information you have but I would be very appreciative of any you would care to share. Thanks in advance.

  • Hello
    My whole maternal and paternal ancestry are connected to The Rower. My father, Thomas Moore, and his siblings, came to Australia in 1951. These surnames are in my tree - Moore, Fitzpatrick, Hoban, (paternal and most from Ossory Hill). King, Murphy, Grace Walsh (maternal and from The Rower). I've been to visit 3 times. Side branches of Crotty (post office), Kavanagh, Power, Butler, Cassin are all connections. I have done my DNA as has my dad, uncle and some cousins. All through ancestry com
    I hope that helps.
    Cheers

  • By the way, this is the first comment I've put here. I don't know how this works or who the people are or to see anyone's "profiles".

  • Hi, Mary: Thanks for responding.How this works is for a person to put their ancestors on this site with info regarding places in Ireland an ancestor was born. If a match is found either by name or Parish or Townland then the process is started for further enquiries/communications.In this case I will ask you which DNA company you, your Dad, Uncle, cousins etc. tested with and the Kit #'s and, if you consent to reply, I will attempt to see if  our DNA have matches indicating possible relationships.I would then provide you with any information I find and any/all other info you might require.

  • Seems I jumped the gun with my last email. You family tree, I assume, is on Ancestry.com. May I ask if you could offer me an invitation as a guest with no power to make changes, just to view so I could see if there are any relationships to my family tree. It would be greatly appreciated.

  • Happy to do so - what is your name and email?
    Where do you live?
    I have the tree as private as I know there are errors and dumped "stuff" until I get around to sorting it.
    The tree on ancestry.com is called Moore Family from The Rower. : - )
