Comments about this page

  • Many thanks for the information. My father said his sisters were both interested in music. I understand that they both spent some time in Paris studying music. I believe Evelyn had joined an order of nuns but was still a noviciate when she died. Her sister married and had one son Patrick Ryan.
    I came over and visited Baunmore about 25 years ago with their first cousin Patricia Coffey of Birdhill.
    I also went to the home of their other first cousin Terrence O Brien, his wife Gertie and daughter Sarah. They showed us the ruins of Toureen Castle.
    Once again many thanks for supplying this information.

  • Patricia, we’ve now added the death notice for your grandfather John Dolan, died in 1913 aged 35 from Addison’s disease. The note at the side explains that the name was originally mis-recorded as James.

    Here is an appreciation published in Sept 1913 –

    An article appears in the Limerick Leader on Sept 1st 1916, detailing some matters which ensued following the decease of John –

    You may have seen our front page on Baunmore, which includes the auction listing of your father’s farm some 61 years ago –

    My grandmother Mary Walsh [] had a music degree, and had some musical contact with your aunt Evelyn, although whether in a teaching or recreational capacity I’m not exactly sure.

    Best wishes.

  • My name is Patricia Kent (Maiden name Dolan) I am researching my family history. This was the family home of my father James Dolan and his sister Evelyn and Josephine. I know very little of the family history and would be very interested if you know of anyone who could help.
