If your name is not Finnerty or a variant, who is your nearest Finnerty relative? Examples would be: My maiden name was Finnerty. May fathers name was Finnerty, My maternal grandmother was a Finnerty.

Family name is Finnerty:  My oldest paternal great grand parents were John Finnerty and Bridget Keone. Their marriage record is in the St. Laurence Parish records for Tynagh [Tine] village which lies just southeast of Loughrea in southeast Galway. John and Bridget would have been born in the late 1700s. Family tradition holds they moved to Barnaculla an area a couple of miles north of Tynagh. Johns son Thomas Finnerty married Catherine Whelan in the St. Laurence church. There are still Whelans in the Barnaculla area, however no Finnertys or Keones, The Whelans of Tynagh pronounce their name as in "wheel" not "whey." There were numerous Finertys recorded in marriages and baptisms and as sponsors, recorded in the Tynagh records. The name is recorded as both Finnerty and Finerty, and became Finnerty in the USA. John and Bridget did not migrate during the famine, however all the sons and daughters migrated to Clinton MA, USA and some worked in the woolen mills. Son James remained in Clinton and I have his family records. Sons John and Thomas married in Clinton and they and their sisters migrated to the Red Granite region in the Northwest Territory, now Wisconsin where they became farmers. John remained in the Red Granite/Green Lake region, however my ancestor Thomas migrated to new lands in Iowa where they homesteaded land and one grandson as I recall became a county sheriff in Iowa. My ancestors descend from Thomas and later migrated to Dakota Territory and homsteaded land in what is the state of South Dakota.  They had extremely hard lives and survived the drougth, famine and the Great Depression, also known as the Dust Bowl.  Most were farmenrs, however two of Thomas' sons also became a county sheriffs, one in Minnesota and one in South Dakota.

About Me

I am researching the Finnertys or Feenaghtys in my family. They lived around the area of Tully in Kilcorkey. My great grandfather was Thomas Finnerty b. 18 March 1880. His wife was Brigid Concannon b. 9 November 1887. They married 12 February 1914 in Castlerea Church. His siblings were John b. 13 August 1877, William b. 27 March 1875, Winifred b. 26 July 1873 and Mary Jane b. 24 June 1871. Mary Jane married Cormac Brennan. Winifred married Michael Kelly.

Their parents were James Feenaghty b. 24 April 1823 from Tully and Brigid McDonagh b. 1844 from Bellanagare. They married on 13 June 1870. James died 1 August 1911. James's siblings were Sarah b. 1842, Mary and Dominic Feenaghty. Sarah married Michael Connor on 14 May 1866. Dominic married Anne Ford on 2 April 1877.

Their parents were William Feenaghty and Jane Knott. William was born 25 February 1788 and died 28 January 1871. Jane was born in 1801 and died on 13 January 1881. Williams's parents were James Feenaghty and Mary Giblin.

My line of Finnertys are buried in Baslick cemetery. Many of their siblings are also buried there.
