Hi to Catherine . . .
Welcome to Ireland reaching Out . . . and to County Tipperary . . .
You requested search . . . lay unanswered . . . by our regular volunteers . . . for over a week now . . so . .
I thought I might have a look . . . to see if I could add any thing worthwhile . . .
I live in Co.Tipperary . . but I must confess . . . I had never ever heard of a Townsland called " Graugiepaudeen " . . new to me . .
I first searched Ancestry . . . to see if . . anyone had already published some findings on " Public " Family Tree - Ancestry
and . . . sure enough . . I found . . a Tree . . assembled by Catherine Dente . . . CGD Family Tree . . . (is that you ??)
Anyway . . . GGD . . . includes . . . William (1837) m to Anne (1838) with all of their offsprings . . .
from Timothy (1858) down to Anne (1877) . . .
TWO other trees . . also .. . appear . . . for William
a Bedore F/T . . . and . . . a Goodwin F/T . . .
So if that's not you . . . maybe you should make contact with above . . .
Mainly . . . you appear to want to ascertain . . if . . there are Doneny Family . . still living in the area . .
and I can't answer that . . . as I am not local to there . . . but . . .
I did search our National Census of 1901 . . . and 1911 . . and found . . . what I believe are your Doneny Relations . .
at that time . . . and in that location . .
FOR 1901 . .
Residents of a house 25 in Graiguepadeen (Fennor, Tipperary)

This Catherine . . . it is my GUESS . . is an Aunt / Relative . . living with two boarders . .
She is the ONLY Doheny . . . appearing for the 1901 search . . . for that location
Next I searched . . . the 1911 Census . . . and this appears to be much more fruitful . . .

You yourself . . . can better view . . . the Census . . . by giving the above coordinates . . go to
and 1911 at . .
Whether there is still a family living anf farming there to this day . . . I have NO way of telling . . .
It is a pity . . that you didn't hear back from the Clergy of the area . . . but they they are greatly diminished on the ground nowadays . .
Tipperary . . . has a PAID genealogical society . . . situated in Nenagh . . . they are
There is . . evidently . . . a National School . . in Gortnahoe . . . where I'm sure . . if you made contact with the Headmaster
you might find what you are lookng for . . .
Best I could do . .
Good Luck with further research . . . Cheers . . .Eamonn.
