Numerous Garveys and Marinans/Marrinans from Kilkee and environs traveled to the USA mid-1840s to 1900, settling in Davenport, Iowa and with descendants dispersed around the country. My gg grandparents, John Garvey and Margaret Marinan along with John's brothers, Michael and Simon and several members of Margaret's family are a part of a large family presence in Davenport. To name them all here would be lengthy. Anyone who is interested, related, thinks they are related, knows any members of each family please contact me for further details. Thanks.

  • Hi there,

    Could you please post your message on the Kilkee parish page here:

    It would be very helpful if you could mention some more specific information on your message, as this would help people to identify whether they are connected to you or not.

    Please make sure you link anyone else in your family who is interested in their Irish heritage to our site - and indeed anyone else you know of Irish heritage.

    Kind regards,

    Sinead Cooney
