I'm interested in the Mackrell family. My paternal grandmother was Mackrell and came from Tullyframe,Kilkeel. Her grandparents were Bernard Mackrell and Rose Bradley who were born c.1840-50. AS it isn't a common name I was wondering if ther was any connection.

Just want to extend a HUGE Thank you for having the song, Come By the Hills on your site. I have been looking for it for years...My scottish grand aunt used to sing it to me when I was very young and now that I am grown I have a keen interest in preserving and passing on things of my heritage to our children. (By some strange coincidence, we have a friend named Pat Devlin! Thanks so much once again!

I enjoyed the site. I can help identify the lady in the picture called Mary It is Mary McCoy from Courtbane,sister of PAckie and Brigie McCoy. There was one boy in the McKenna family called Edward but as far as I know he died when young, thus leaving 6 sisters ; Mary McCoy who lived over the lane in Moybane where Gerry originally lived, Kate Richardson, Annie Devlin, Sarah Hanratty ( who married James Hanratty and who is the man in the picture with the nun who is his sister Sister Loyola and who is not a Richardson . I think you thought it was my Aunt Annie who wa a French Sister of Charity and who died in London in 1927. The remaining McKenna girls were Rose the youngest who married Patrick Keenan, Alice who married Fitzpatrick in Keenogue. I have a very detailed history of the Richardsons from ab

I stumbled upon your website by accident & found it very interesting. My husband is Brian Devlin. We know nothing about his history. He is from Liverpool. His dad, Harold Devlin was born in 1921 & was an Orangeman. My husband is Catholic, seems strange to me, I thought Devlin was a catholic name. Harold was married to Rosemary. Both are dead.

Thanks for all of your work. My mother, Teresa, has kept me informed. Tonight I really enjoyedlooking at the song list. Nanny, Kathleen Martinez, use to sing to us bits and pieces and I to my children as well. Phil the Fluter's Ball was one such Ditty. But we only heard the refrain. To see the rest was enjoyable. I do not see other songs that she sang and will have to dig deep to recall them.
I will visit the site to see how my cousins are doing. How can we send you information or updates?

My Grandfather was a McArdle, Francis McArdle, he came to the US in the early 1900's with his wife Alice Thomas. From stories he told us I think he was from the county of Cork. I found your website looking for the coat of Arms for my family. Your website was very informative. Thank You.
