Hello!  I'm interested the Tierney family.  The earliest I know are Matthew Tierney and Anne Condron, who had seven children for whom I have found baptism records at Canice's (Finglas and St. Margaret's) in the mid 1800's.  They had lived near Dunsoghly Castle.  Family continued to live in Dublin, but son William emigrated to the US in 1871 and son Joseph was believed (by Wm's descendants) to have emigrated to Australia about the same time.  Joseph returned to Ireland and died in 1909.  

I am struggling to puzzle out several lines and if I knew more of Matthew or Anne's parentage it could help me.  I'm also interested in knowing if there's a way to find out whether these two sons were sent away or chose to go.  

Thank you!

Mary Hudson

  • Hi Mary,     Just came across your query now,   before I check too deep can I ask if you are still looking.   I had a quick look and Found a Luke Tierney born July 1841 St Margarets to Michael Tierney and Anne Condron,  Also found Josephs Death in 1909   I also found the death Anne Tierney age 74 a Widow of a Labourer from Dunsoghley near Finglas  ( at the end of Dublin Airport, ) on 15/3/1886  that means born in 1812 ,  some of the records for that time are hard to read and not much point if your not still looking ...      Best    Myles

  • Thank you!  Yes, I'm always interested.  Thank you.  I didn't have the information about Anne Tierney passing away in 1886.  That could well have been his mother.  I'm told they lived across the street from the Dunsoghley castle.  I'll try to find out  the Caffrey connection as well.

    Thank you for trying.  I am not positive I have the right emigration date for William and I don't know why he, the youngest, left Ireland at that time.  He may have been involved in fighting the English - he had an old Irish flag with a Harp on it and gave his son Emmett as a middle name.  But it's just a surmise.  I don't really know.  

    If you should find anything, I"d be grateful for the insight.  

    Mary

  • Hi Mary,    Ill have a look so,   no promises,  I did find a few more of the children which Im sure you already have.  If William was fighting against the British I can almost,     no, can      Guarantee that I will find nothing about it,  I remember back in 1970 something I went to the trouble of getting a pass to see official records in Dublin Castle, Vetted and checked me  signed the officials secrets questions . and I spent about two weeks looking in papers and found absolutely nothing.  Mothers and Fathers and wifes didnt know.  enough of that  Having said that it raises a question that I hadnt thought of before, "Was there a list of " People wanted for questioning "   Ill look.  So is it that you want to find out more about the previous generations or was that your query about  William  Ill continue on the basis that its not why William left.  Sometimes I do go on   Best Myles

  • Thank you.  I guess my interest is in the story of people.   Whatever there is that interests you to look at.  I do have a distant cousin in Dublin with whom I occassionally connect via email, but he knows no more than I do.  I'm grateful to you for exploring however much you like.  

    Thank you,

    Mary

  •          Hi Mary ,  Picking the easy fruit,, Luke Tierney Born 1841, Married     Alicia Carroll on the 20th of Feb. 1882 her Fatherr Hugh, his, Matthew. he was a Cattle dealer but I couldnt make out his address.    In 1901 Census it shows himself 59 a Pig dealer, his Wife Alisia 49  Mary 18, says housekeeper,  Luke 16  Agricult. worker,  Hugh 13  labourer,   Alicia( different spelling )   11, Scholar    in time I might trace the children forward to see is there any current people you can contact,  In the family of Matthews the baptisms , the only member of the family was a Christine Condron,  and as I went back Matthews and Annes birth wasnt there , as I sort of thought they wouldnt . You can look at the Marriage and the Census yourself on Irish Genealogy  and  census of Ireland 1901  and again in 1911 although I havent looked in the Latter as yet,, Just keeping you updated   Best for now Myles      Sorry , should have said Luke was back at Dunsoghly in 1901,    if he ever left..? also, Irish Genealogy has two sections  the Church is the first and the Civil is the second  you can look at whatever you like   the Marriage is in Civil  and in the sort by,   click date and they will be in order for you... You may well know all this already ...... Best
