Can I say how much I enjoy accessing the Liturgical Calender and reading the brief outlines for a Feast Day. The www.RathkennyParish.ie website can be found in my "daily favourites" selection. Additionally, I love accessing the varied Topics of Faith under the Main Menu, and have learned so much about the basics of faith, having returned to faith after many years of absence, through the influence of the late John Paul the Great, and a kindly priest hailing from the West of Ireland. May all who visit this site be richly blessed. Go n-éiri Réalta na Beithile i gcroi gach uile dhuine.
Comment:
A Chaoimhín, tá fáilte romhat. John Paul II influenced and blessed all of us. Thank you for your lovely witness. May you continue to be richly blessed too! Postscript: A Chaoimhín, you wrote to us in the early days of the site, but did not include your email address for the administrator (we do not publish it). We would like to check back with you. Please contact administrator: brendancleary2@gmail.com

Great to find the website. Loads to read. 262871 visitors! Attended the old and new churches. My father and grandparents are buried in Rathkenny graveyard. Spent my early school years at Stackallen and then on to Drogheda and then the world! Had the most special times there (thanks P!). Rathkenny Hall, and the Sally, and the Lackan, and the church every sunday, the missions, holy days, and places with no names but the ones we children gave them. Such memories. Good luck to all.
Comment:
Glad you found the website, Peter, but where in the world do we find you in 2008? Delighted to hear from you and hope you continue to visit us.

I'm delighted to have just discovered your website which is very enjoyable. I grew up in Rathkenny. My father was Terence Cullen and my mother was Christina. We owned the local pub and grocery store at Lacken. I came to Toronto in 1959 and have lived here ever since. I married a Skerries girl in 1969 and we have four children and five grandchildren. I remember several of the people mentioned on your site.

Great to hear from you, Teddy. Perhaps we'll meet when you come to visit your brother Mattie in Kilmainhamwood!Your many visits to the site are most welcome. With a Christmas blessing for you and family. Fr Stanley

Could anybody help me in finding the exact location of the Rathkenny Hills, please.... it's a beautiful part of the country, but no map references can pinpoint them.. keep up the good work on your website. Well done...!
Comment:
"Rathkenny Hills" may refer to Sliabh Bre? and surrounding upland which is located across the townlands of Mount Fortescue and Creewood, located to the north east of Rathkenny. See map link to townlands under "Where We Are" in our Main Menu. Good luck with your research! Best wishes from the web team.

Great website, and I really enjoyed the pictures of the parish in action. Was looking for similarities as my Great-Grandfather--Christopher Graham--was born in Rathkenny in 1815. Hopefully someone there can help me locate where his family resided there. He married a Togher (Toher). Would like to hear from anyone. Thanks.
Comment:
Bernard, Christopher's origins lie elsewhere. Glad you enjoyed your visit to our website. Continue to log on. Best Wishes from Web Team.

Enjoying your site! Many thanks. Rathkenny seems to be where ancestors of the Spring family were living before about 1855. If anyone there can confirm this, we'd be grateful. Contact: kedumba at acay dot com dot au (written this way to reduce automated spam).

Hope you got our reply detailing possible answer to your query. Do the Blue Mountains turn green for St Patrick's Day? Best Wishes, Fr Stanley

I lived near Wilkinstown in the 1940s and remember playing many a football match at Rathkenny, Castletown, Syddan, etc. Congratulations on a good web site. May the Lord bless and encourage you all in His work.

Mattie, The same townlands are still competitive. It's good to hear from one of our emigrants. You'll be remembered especially on Emigrant Sunday (October 8th) in our special prayers.

Greetings to all. I am a native of Slane, daughter of Noel and the late Jean (Morgan)Mc Cormack.

I am currently living near Boston after spending 7 years near Seattle, WA. Husband James, and children Ciara, Brendan and Enya hope to visit you all this summer. Love the site and please keep all exPats in your prayers.

Best wishes to you, Elizabeth, and to your husband and family. Your comment is appreciated. We have a newly-donated organ in Rushwee awaiting your trial run!
