  1. Hello. I am researching my family history for the families Dowdle and O’Loughlin who all originally came from Tipperary. The Dowdles came from Thurles Tipperary as shown on their death certificates in Australia.
    The father was Patrick O’Loughlin, mother Bridget Burke. They had two children that I am aware of Margaret Mary and Thomas Henry O’Loughlin both who came to Australia.

    Stephen Dowdle and Margaret Carew (Carey) lived in 91 Pike Street Thurles, Tipperary in the 1901 census. They had Mary, John, Stephen, Thomas, Patrick and Michael who stayed in Ireland. All the others immigrated to Australia, got married and had children.

    Any information on these two families would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards

  2. Hello from Canada!
    I am trying to trace my family who immigrated to Canada around 1850 +- 10 years. We had it written by someone in our family that they were from Langley, Tipperary. Although, in Canada, their name was spelled Loton and Lotan, I believe the correct spelling to be Laughton, which from what I read was originally an English Cheshire name. I see that there were many Laughton’s who, although born in Ireland, returned to England after the potatoe famine.

    I have been unable to locate a town by the name of Langley, nor a Civil, or Church Parish, but I did learn that there were a number of Langley Estates situated in Tipperary. As our family were Anglican farmers, I suspect they may have worked on one of the estates. It seems most of the estates were located around Thurles. I believe these included: Coalbrook, Archerstown, Brittas Castle, Priesttown and Knockanroe. I think those are the main ones???

    My family when they immigrated consisted of:
    George Laughton (Born: 1792)
    Martha (B: 1792/4)
    John (B: 1837)
    Mary Ann (B: 1839)

    • George says:

      Hi Richard, Thank you for your communication. I have contacted one of the Langley family residing at the Archerstown estate and await their reply. St Mary’s Church & Famine Museum, which I note you also contacted by email, today remains the parish church of the Langley family. The Langley family are indeed a long established and respected family in the Thurles, Co Tipperary area. I will keep you updated on any new findings which may be uncovered over the coming weeks.

  3. Barbara Walsh says:

    I’m trying to trace my Great Grandmother’s history. Her name was Margaret Dee (married – last name Dye). Her father was John Dee and she had a sister named Kathleen who married an American named Rudolph LePore. Kathleen is buried in Ireland. Margaret was born in Littleton, Tipperary, Ireland. I know she died in 1923. I have a birth date of Nov. 30th, but the year is sketchy (maybe between 1875-1880). We think Margaret may be buried in Ireland, but cannot find any information. She died when my grandfather was young, so her children didn’t know much about her. Can you help me find out what grave yards would be in the area during that time? I’d like to find out about the family so I can share it with my Mother.

    • George says:

      Hi Barbara, I will make some enquiries and get back to you in the next few weeks.

      • Barbara Walsh says:

        I was able to track down a marriage license record for Margaret Dee Dye and James William Dye. Her birthdate listed on that record is Dec. 29, 1883. I also found a record of her sister, Mary Dee Lepore who married an American, Rudolph G. Lepore. Mary died in the USA 1950 (not sure where she is buried either) but Rudy remarried her sister, Cathleen/Kathleen. They both died in Ireland (Cathleen in 1960 possibly and Rudy in 1965) and are supposedly buried in Littleton, Tipperary, Ireland.

        • Barbara Walsh says:

          I also tracked down on Mary Dee Lepore’s death record that the Dee girls’ mother was Kathleen Coby. Their father was John Dee — they lived in Littleton, Tipperary, Ireland.

  6. Hugh Cooney says:

    Hi All
    I am trying to find the grave site of my uncle who died as a teenager in Thurles around 1940, his name was either James, Jimmy, Jim Riley. All the information that I have is that his grave had a small Iron Cross. This was made by a local blacksmith, who had their forge beside the grave yard.
    Any help with this would be very much appreciated.
