Help required in searching for roots by Carol Markey from Blackrock, Co. Dublin
28. July 2011
Hi, I'm trying to locate a marriage cert for James and Catherine(Katie) Markey; we think they married in either 1888 or 1889.They went to NYC but returned to Rathkenny. Also, we are looking for their death certs and where they may be buried. Their son Hugh is buried in Rathkenny graveyard. Any info to help fill in the gaps would be great. They were on the Rathkenny Census of 1911, and had three children: Catherine, Julia (my granny) and Hugh. Thankyou, Carol Markey

Wandered on to your website by mistake. One of the best I have ever seen. Congratulations and well done to all concerned. The fact that you have a priest from my own parish gives us great pride.

Hi everyone. This might be an impossible dream, but I am researching the family of Brian (Bernard) Allen, married to Mary Leonard. He lived in Mullagha Rathkenny in the 1901/1911 census. Died about 1938. Does anyone remember him? Would love to know something about him. Thanks in anticipation. Maureen
Pugh/Pue/Pews by Deb Meade from Minnesota USA

You supplied me with birth records for Pugh/Pue/Pews in Rathkenny a while ago and I thank you. The earliest birth record was from 1788- when did the church start? Is there any mention anywhere of parishioners coming from France during the Reign of Terror? My Pugh's are said to be from France originally and they were Catholic.

Deepest sympathy by Susan Gore from Rathkenny
05. November 2010
Our deepest smypathy is with Fr. Stanley's family and friends who will miss him terribly. A special word of thanks to Mary, his housekeeper and a close circle of friends who took special care of him as his illness progressed. As we all know he loved to keep up to date with all through this website and spent many enjoyable hours working on it. It is a credit to him as founder. It is very touching to write a message for him here as we know he will be watching over us and giving it his seal of approval. Father, please watch over and guide us and may you rest in peace. Ollie and Susan Gore & Family.

I did not know Fr. Stanley personally, but I prayed for him in his final illness, as he passed from this life to Eternity. May his soul rest in peace! Tu es sacerdos in aeternum, secundum ordinem Melchisedech. Alleluia! Hic est sacerdos quem coronavit Dominus Alleluia! . .....Ps. 109

Fr. Gerry was a special priest and good friend. We enjoyed his company at the Western Region Mass for the Order of the Holy Sepulchre in Cong on a number of occasions. May he rest in Peace with the Lord.
