Garvey's and Tuohy's of Coose Whitegate

The Garvey's lived next to O’Tuaigh’s Service Station in Coose Whitegate in 1899-1950/60's just over the border on R352 into county Galway. 

My father and I met The Tuohy's who own the station in 2003. I have since researched family history and would like to share with folks how the Garvey/Tuohy roots have grown in the United States and elsewhere.

  • Hi John:


    Many thanks for your post to Ireland Reaching Out.  The best way to reach the Tuohys in Whitegate is to write to them as I do not have an email address for them.  


    Brian Tuohy is an auctioneer there and his address is:  Coose, Whitegate, County Clare, Ireland.


    The best of luck with your research.  If you have any difficulties contacting, please contact me at


    Kind regards,

  • Hello,  I sure hope that John O'Connell's offer to share information about the Tuohy family in Whitegate is still available.  This is my husband's family, and we have been having problems sorting out the many Tuohy families in that area.  Could you please tell me how I might be able to contact John?  Thank you, Janet

  • I have posted here before a few years ago. Researched on a lot of Tuohy families in Woodford and Clonrush Parishes other than my own too. I connect to Martin Tuohy of Coos whose wife was Mary Goonan. I also connect to Pat Tuohy married to Margaret Roonan in Rossmore Guerteeny area. Email Suzanne
