Have just been going over old post (very old) and came across your message. I am researching my family history which is in Scattery Island, Kilrush and Kilbaha. I was sent a book written by Don Scanlan who's family grew up there. In the book there are many things written about the families you mention. One of my name interests is also Moran as I believe my family are related to them . I have also come across the names of Crotty and Grffin, if you are still looking for information, please get in touch

Yes, I am still very interested in Scattery Island families, many of whom intermarried. I have connections to the Griffin, Brennan, Moran and Crotty families directly, plus tangential connections to the Hanrahans and others. They worked on the Shannon River guiding ships up the river.

I have data from the church records in Kilrush as well as some family data gathered from cousins who live in Clare today.

Thanks, PJ. I have the book. I appreciate your help.

Of note, I gave up looking for the Tithe Applotments for Scattery when I realized that it was only for grasslands. Somehow, the island did not qualify, I would gather.

You and I were in contact in the pastover the Culligans from Kilmuury-McMahon. I am descended from Michael and Margaret Culligan from Drumdigus, whose son Martin inherited the house. I know we are all rewlated in one manner o=r another if we go back far enough, but unfortunately the records are not there to help further.

Thanks again,
Gene

Hi carol,

Good to hear from another Scattery Islander. Yes, the Morans are related to the Griffins and Crottys. We are also tied to the Hanrahans and Brennans.

How are you linked to the Morans?

Hi,

My great-great grandmother's sister, a Griffin, married Felix Brennan in the 1840s. Have you seen the Clare Library site with the infomration about the Shannon River pilots? The Brennans, as welll as Griffins have a lengthy history as river pilots.

Best wishes,
Gene
