Caveney Ancestors - Kiltullagh/Kilkeevin


My name is Mairéad Caveney. I have been searching for ancestors on the Ireland XO site, among others. I met a lady who said a volunteer met her in her parish and was of considerable help in finding information on ancestors.

I am currently in Canada, but live from time to time in Ennis, Co Clare. I would like to know if there is anyone who might help me research ancestors in Kilrush, Co Clare, or Castlereagh, Co Roscommon. I spent 6 days in Castlereagh in May of 2014, searching, but didn't know the townland. I believe it might be Spring Garden, but I have no idea where in the county it is located. I have found the same spelling as mine in both Kiltullagh and Kilkeevin.

If there is anyone who might be of assistance, I'd appreciate hearing from them.

Kind regards,

  • Mairéad:

    I responded to your other message.

    Do you have access to Google Maps? I can see Spring Garden or Gardens on the L1602 local road just south of Garralahan and not far from the Co. Galway border.

    You probably have the 1901 and 1911 census records for the Keaveney family but they are below.

    What else can I do to assist?

  • Hello Roger,

    I have responded to your previous message. The 1901/1911 Census are too late since my great-grandfather was already living in the UK at that time. Without knowing any siblings or further generations, I have no idea if the Keaveney noted in these Census are relatives. Also, I believe the name to have originally spelled as Caveney. However, I also understand spellings vary greatly!

    I will locate Spring Gardens townland on the map. I would like to make another trip to Co Roscommon to see if I could find more information on the family now. I am in Ennis, but leaving next week, returning to Ennis 19 October until at least February, or hopefully April. I will continue to dig further while back in Canada. If I find any new information, I will let you know.

    Again, many thanks for your efforts,
