Home to Knockanarroor – Pillowcase Photo
Missing photo gives hints to Irish history

I returned home to Knockanarroor, Ireland for the first time, but I have never been there before.

In April 2011, I traveled to Ireland, precisely where my Great-Great-Grandmother Ellen Brennan Foley, born May 15, 1820 in Killarney, Ireland, and died in Stillwater, Minnesota, lived in Knockanarroor Townland, pronounced “Knock-on-a-roar” in Irish Gaelic, meaning the hill of corn in English.

On a cold January 2011 day, a photograph, along with a hand-written card with hints of Ellen’s life, including her husband’s name, William Foley, were found tucked away in a pillow of treasures of my late grandmother Mary Jannet “Jennie” Foley Walsh, 1886 to 1985, of Murdock.

The unmarked country road my Irish roots were plucked from in the early 1840s, is located just east of the city of Killarney in County Kerry, in western Ireland. A milk lorry driver, a truck driver in the United States, Patrick “Pa” Brosnan of Muckross, in the Killarney area, pumping petro in the near by village of Barraduff agreed to guide me to the hidden location that is plain site.

Ellen’s parents, James Brennan and Mary Walsh, my great-great-great grandparents, from my grandmother’s family, called the townland home, as they worked the rented land consisting of what is referred to by residents as a “poorish land” of wetlands, surrounded by bogs. The peat or turf, decayed vegetation, is cut and dried for heating and cooking fuel today, just like my family did in the 1800s or earlier, with the smoke puffing out of cottages, producing a musty smell. My family most likely served as grooms, tending to the horses exchanged on the carriage route at the end of the road of Knockanarroor, on a major route to Killarney.

I traveled to Killarney in 1980, my late father, Martin J. Walsh Jr., in the 1950s, but it was not was not until 2011, I could say without a doubt Knockanarroor is home in Ireland for my family. My father and I traveled the same paths in the horse jaunting carts of what is called the old butter roads, the 1700s turnpike, but I might be the first to make the journey home to Knockanarroor.

I used hints from http://www.ancestry.com to stitch together my ancestral threads. Archivist Michael Lynch of Kerry Library, Ireland, along with free online Roman Catholic records from the Diocese of Kerry, http://www.irishgenealogy.ie, provided information that my family belonged to the Catholic Parish of Glenflesk, with Knockanarroor as their place of residence.

Although I did not find any living relatives in Ireland during my journey, learning about the people, their faith, village life and the beautiful Irish countryside, I was able to shine light on a period of obscurity in my family’s history.

My Great-Great Grandmother Ellen departed Knockanarroor, be it voluntary or forced, due to disease, food shortage or economic reasons. I returned Ireland to answer the questions of where my family roots were prematurely pulled from the Ireland.

Unemployed?
Start a blog to tell prospective employers you are searching for work. There are currently 215,200 unemployed workers in Minnesota, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Read more. . .

As I am now one of the 215,200 after my recent layoff, I have posted my resume on my blog to help snag my next job. Click here to see my resume and search my blog.

Using free resources, like a blog, is a great way to network to your next job. Remember, if you were laidoff, it’s because your former employer could not afford to keep you on the payroll, not because of your work. My motto is,

” I will get a better job than the one I was laid off from!”

Start your blog!
I invite you to join me at AreaVoices.com and create your own blog. It’s free, really! Just select a topic related to health, money, travel, family or food. I am sure you have an interest in one of the topics and you can share your ideas with the community at AreaVoices.com.

View Areavoices blogger Tami Tagtow’s blog Look At This. I spotted her blizzard videos on Facebook and encouraged her to share her videos with the Areavoices community for more people to enjoy. You can do the same by starting your own blog!

See my most viewed blog with photos of racing pilot Jimmy Leeward from 2005 when I was an employee of The New York Times Company.


In 2005 I photographed Jimmy and Bette Leeward, standing in front of their 1947 Piper J-3 Cub plane in their hangar at Leeward Air Ranch, Feb. 2, 2005, in Ocala, FL. Leeward died when he crashed his World War II fighter P-51 Mustang during the Reno Air Races in Reno Nevada Friday September 16, 2011. (Jannet Walsh/Star-Banner)2005

Racing pilot Jimmy Leeward remembered

In bette leeward, Catholic, Jimmy Leeward, news, state, World on September 19, 2011 at 8:20 am

Murdock, Minnesota


Note: In 2005 I photographed Jimmy and Bette Leeward, standing in front of their 1947 Piper J-3 Cub plane in their hangar at Leeward Air Ranch, Feb. 2, 2005, in Ocala, FL. I was living and working in Florida, an employee of The New York Times Company. Leeward died when he crashed his World War II fighter P-51 Mustang during the Reno Air Races in Reno Nevada Friday September 16, 2011. (Jannet Walsh/Star-Banner)2005

Update
Please see Friends of pilot remember a hero by By Marian Rizzo, Ocala.com.

From Ocala.com
“Even before that fateful moment, Leeward has seemed a hero to many others. The Rev. Patrick Sheedy, pastor at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, said the Leewards attended services there. Jimmy was on the church building committee and also supported the construction of Trinity Catholic High School.” Read full story at ocala.com

What I remember about the afternoon I spent with the Leewards was how humble, and accommodating the couple were during the photo shoot. Please see below more photos in a photo gallery, mainly by a the yellow J-Cub plane.
