My mum's maiden name was Finnerty. My grandmother came to the Gathering in 2003. My mum was shocked by this as she was very ill and passed away the next year. We never knew she went until I saw her name on the website and she appears to have gone by herself. My great grandfather was Thomas Finnerty born 17 March 1880. His siblings were John Feenaghty b. 15 Aug 1877, William Feenaghty b. 1875, Winifred  Feenaghty b. 23 Sep 1873 and Mary Jane Feenaghty b. 24 Jun 1871. Their parents were James Feenaghty b. c1825 and Bridget McDonagh b. c1844. They married in 1870. James's parents were William Feenaghty and Jane Knott. The generations lived around Tully, Kilcorkey, Roscommon. Jane Knott came from Boyle.

I have been doing some genealogical research of late and believe that my grandmother, Kate Finnerty, would be a member of this branch of the Finnerty family.

My grandmother was born in 1890 and emigrated to the US (New York) in 1908. She listed her hometown as Ballyforan on the ship manifest. Her father, Andrew Finnerty, was born in 1862 and died in Ireland (1930). According to baptismal records, his parents names were Peter Finnerty and Catherine Kelly of County Galway.

My grandmother had two younger brothers, Peter and Michael (ages 9 and 7 in the 1901 Irish census). Both brothers emigrated to the US. In or around 1902, Andrew Finnerty remarried to a woman named Catherine (aged 42 in the 1911 census) and she gave birth to five chidren by 1911: Patrick, Mary Anne, Margaret Ellen, Andrew, and John Joe, all of whom are listed on the 1911 census. As far as I know, Patrick and Mary Anne emigrated to the US, but some of my grandmother's half-siblings may have stayed in Ireland and their decendants may still be in County Galway or County Roscommon.

Any knowledge of the grandchildren or great grandchilren of Andrew and Catherine Finnerty would be much appreciated.

Hi Richard-

I noticed in your information that your great grandparents were John Finnerty and Bridget Keone of Tynaugh. They are my ancestors. Their daughter Celia Finnerty married Joseph James and emigrated to Adair County, Iowa. Most of my family still lives there. My wife and I will be making a trip to Ireland in late May. It would be great to share information. Best.
