I believe that number 56 and 57 Parnell Street formerly known as Bagwell street was the business address of William Burke(Dealer) and Michael Burke (Corn merchant? spirts dealer) It was also listed as a Public house at one point too. I have reason to believe that Michael Burke was my great great grandfather and the William may have been his father. I am still trying to tie all the pieces together and after I have my Big Y 700 paternal DNA test done it should help a lot. I also note that in 1911 My great grandfather also named Michael Burke a harness and saddle maker lived at number 52 Parnell/Bagwell street. I suspect there might be a connection there also for that location.

I am looking at an old photograph of two WWI soldiers. Photographer T Hughes 46 Parnell Street Clonmel.

Ann here again, I have one of the bill heads since P.A.Kiersey was in 31 Parnell Street shop.


4 Ann Hayes nee Kiersey June 1, 2017 at 10:25 pm

Have always wished I had a photo of 31 Parnell Street, with maybe my fathers name over the door. He was P.A. Kiersey , the Master Baker &

Confectioner mentioned in year 1935. I do not know for how many years he was there but I was born in 1936 and did live there for some time,

a young girl named Bridie helping my mother. She would have to be about 95 years old today. I never asked my parents about life before I

arrived, all I know is Parnell Street was my first home. I hope this will help you to update your records.

Yours truly,
