He arranged for himself and hundreds of the tenants of his parish to leave Ireland for a new life in America. On 2 May 1850, he was joined by many of the people of his parish and adjoining ones to board the ship Ticonderoga. The ship sailed to New Orleans and Kilpipe lost a large amount of its population.
Is there a list anywhere of names of those who joined Father Hoare on his voyage to America, Jaybee

Hi Jaybee - there is an article from 1978 called "Passenger List of the Ticonderoga, 1850" on the academic database, JStore, which includes a passenger list. If you don't have access to an institution account, you should be able to register as a guest (see alternate access options). The link is https://www.jstor.org/stable/25519953 Cheers, Deb.
