Extractions: December 1979 "Nothing could mean more," said Pat Nolan, religious affairs correspondent for The Irish Times , as he struggled to explain to me what Pope John Paul II's visit to Ireland meant to the Irish. "You see, Ireland is so Catholic....'' Of the country's 3.5 million Catholics, it is estimated that 2.5 million saw the pope during his whirlwind weekend tour (September 29-October 1, 1979), which crisscrossed the country from Dublin to Drogheda to Galway to Knock to Maynooth to Limerick. Plea for Peace and Reconciliation in Northern Ireland Two weeks before the pope's visit, British war hero and elder statesman Lord Mountbatten and three members of his party were killed when his boat exploded on Donegal Bay. The IRA (Provisional Irish Republican Army), an outlawed guerrilla group fighting to end British rule in Northern Ireland, claimed responsibility for the death, calling it "an execution." With that as backdrop, the pope chose not to go to Northern Ireland, but on Saturday went only as far north as Drogheda, 30 miles from the border. John Paul issued a definitive statement against the spiral of violence. He reminded his hearers, "All who take the sword will perish by the sword."

In such repute was this school held that there were no less than 1200 students, nor were they confined to Connaught alone but came from every province in Ireland. For a Catholic to keep a public school in those days was a serious offense, and when Ussher visited Galway in 1615, calling Lynch before him he severely reprimanded him, compelled him to close his school at once, and bound him under heavy bail not to reopen it. Young Lynch received his early education from his father and from him imbibed his love of classical learning. Feeling a call to the priesthood he left Galway for France, pursued his studies under the Jesuits E.A. D'ALTON

Napoleon III , who received him most graciously, and was dissuaded by him from recognizing the Confederacy. On this visit to Europe, wherever he went, he left nothing undone to create sympathy for the Union side. During the Draft Riots of 1863 in New York City, Governor Seymour invoked the aid of the archbishop to suppress disorder, to which invitation, though he was fatally broken in health, he willingly responded, addressing a large assemblage from the balcony of his residence. His loyalty to his adopted country was well balanced and finely adjusted to the duties and responsibilities of his sacred office. He exercised the strictest vigilance lest American liberty might engender liberal influence tending to minimize the doctrine and discipline of the Catholic Church. He unsparingly condemned those who, through fear of anti-Catholic feeling, were disposed to conciliate their opponents by seemingly harmless concessions. He was intolerant of the slightest modification or innovation in religion unless sanctioned by the Supreme Head of the Church. He believed that the adherence to Catholic faith should be bold, fearless, outspoken and uncompromising in the extreme, and especially so in the face of opposition.
Extractions: John, the eldest son was the first of the Kellys to go to Australia. The truth is, he was sent, because on 4th December 1840 he stole two pigs "value about six pounds" from a James Cooney of Ballysheehan, near the famous city of Cashel, and then went and sold them at Cahir market about 14 miles further on. So the police records tell us anyway and the authorities seem to have trusted the police reports because on 7th January 1841, John Kelly was found guilty at Cashel Court and sentenced to 7 years transportation for pig stealing.

Extractions: I'm searching for any relatives, information, and history of Keating ancestors listed in this site and attached reports. Specifically, I am searching for several descendants of my great-great grandparents Timothy and Catherine (Connell) Keating of the Rockhill area of north County Cork. Children and grandchildren of Timothy and Catherine settled in Jacksonville IL and I have traced many of them and met several of them online through the Great Keating Search (please visit www.keatingsearch.com). However, two of their grandchildren moved to Chicago and Seattle and continue to elude me. As detailed below, I'm looking for relatives of those branches in the US, as well as any relatives in Ireland, some of whom remain in what is now the Meelin/Newmarket area of Co. Cork.
