Welcome to Moyacomb Parish

You are very welcome to the Ireland Reaching Out Parish of Moyacomb

Our aim is to connect all people with a link to Moyacomb. You may live here, have visited here or maybe are tracing ancestors who left long ago. In any case, we’re sure to have lots to share and are delighted to welcome you. Feel free to post your message and we will respond as soon as possible. Remember to post as much information as you can with regard to the people you are researching. The more information you post, the more likely it is that one of our volunteers will be able to advise or assist you. Also include information concerning which sources you may have already used to others may further your research.

Please be patient - as our programme has only begun to roll out across the island of Ireland and volunteers in some areas may not yet be organised.

Many thanks.

About Moyacomb Parish

What is now the parish of Clonegal comprises the ancient parishs of Barragh and Moyacomb.

The church of Barragh was destroyed by Cromwell?s soldiers in 1650. A Patron day took place here until 1798. The holy well known as Cranevane was restored for Jubilee 2000. The word Moyacomb is from the Irish Magh-da-Chon meaning the plain of the two hounds. It is the ancestral patrimony of the O? Neill?s of Leinster.
