I am trying to trace any information about an ancestor - David Carroll - who, according to English census records, was born in Clonmel around 1829. He went to Bristol, date unknown, where he married Catherine Perkins who also is shown in censuses as having been born in Clonmel around 1831. I have been unable to find any birth or baptism records for David or Catherine but there in an entry in the Tithe Applotment Books in 1826 for a J Carroll of Irishtown South. I would appreciate any information that local people may be able to offer and will visit in the near future if possible. Regards Richard Harper

Hi, I would like to find my relations in Clonmel. My father and family come from there, and I know some of his brothers and sisters remained in Clonmel when he moved to Londonn before the second world war. His name was Patrick Prendergast and his brothers were Edward(Ted) and Thomas(Tom) and probably 3 more siblings. Perhaps this rings a bell or you may have had parents of the same generation.I would appreciate any information at this stage. Thanks Tony
Having just spent 10 super days in Clonmel, I would like to thank all those people that made us feel more than welcome, you are such a lovely 'Bunch', we really noticed how friendly everyone were and also the motorist, if a driver saw we were waiting to cross the road, the car would pull up and let us cross. There are a few back home in the UK that need a bit of Irish training I think. What a lovely Country you have too. Our B&B in the Brighton House was 100% throughout, Pat & Bernie made us most welcome and even said we could go back!! We will most certainly take up their offer soon. I do miss the Bars, each one with it's own unique setting. Thank you everyone.
Hi, Many thanks for a great site which is of great interest to me. I am hoping that I might find a photograph of a house called Adelaide Cottage which was built by William Tinsley the famous architect of Clonmel and Cincinnati as the family home. The Tinsley family lived in Adelaide Cottage up to the time the family emigrated to the USA in 1851. The house was somewhere in Irishtown. I am not sure if the house still stands or if a photograph of it even exists. Tinsley also built a family home in Cincinnati which is still lived in today. Tinsley is buried in Indianapolis and his grave stone proudly proclaims that he came from Clonmel. He deserves to be better remembered in his native town. A book published in 1953 titled "Victorian Architect" The Life and Work of William Tinsley gives an account of his work in Tipperary and in the USA. Once again many thanks for a great site, Bill Tinsley
Is your name Butler or O'Brien ? I have been trying for a number of years to find out more about my Clonmel ancestry via public records without success. Unfortunately, both the State and Church records have been lost. My great grandparents were James Butler (born in Clonmel in about 1852) and Bridget O’Brien (born in Clonmel in about 1853). They were living in Irishtown, Clonmel in the 1870’s, but they moved to Newcastle upon Tyne in about 1877 to 1881. It is likely that they married in about 1872, but their marriage records have been lost. They had the following children who were baptised at St. Mary’s, Clonmel: Anne Butler - 30 December 1873 and Patrick Butler – 1 January 1877. Patrick, a sergeant in the Irish Battalion of the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers, died in France in 1916 after rescuing his Commanding Officer. In his military records it states that he was born at Old Bridge in Clonmel. It is possible that James Butler was the son of Michael Butler & Anne Laffan, and that Bridget O’Brien was the daughter of Patrick Brien & Margaret Byrne, but this has not been confirmed. It is also possible that James had a brother called John (born 1854), and that Bridget had a brother John (born about 1871) and a sister Mary (born about 1861). If any of this information appears to match your own ancestry, I would be very pleased to hear from them or you. Many thanks for taking the time to read this message, and well done to ClonmelOnline for such an excellent local website.

Hello. My family is from County Tipperary and I am looking for the two sisters who operated the Barrett's smoke shop in Clonmel. I gather the shop closed once the smoking ban came into effect in 2004. A quick search using Google street view shows the store now converted. I loved the area when I was there in September 1996 and long to come back to visit family. -Robin Hastings nee Barrett Barrett/Hyland/Scully/Egan/O'Brien/Ryan are some common names in my family tree.
Hi Michael, i am very impressed with the site , it really is a great job .. i will talk to the lads here and see if we can do anything in terms of either taking an ad or something like that ?? i will let you know. thanks Martin
Coursing with hounds is a sport which shows the reality of life & death .In this day & age of drugs and crime it might be a good thing to show our young people -when the suicide rate is at record levels in the younger age group -it is time to question this political corectionalsim .The Hare gets a fair chance .Remember in the dark days of English tyranny an Irishman was not allowed to own a hunting dog. Long live Coursing.I spell it differently from the objector. Mick Slattery Australia
