I have just come accross your thread, and thaught i would contact you as my name is Michael Colmey, i live in Monasterevan, Co. Kildare. I am interested as this is a very unusual name and i also thought we were the only ones around. My father's name was Edward (Ned) and my granfather's name was also Michael and lived in Kildangan, and and before that lived near Athy, Co. Kildare.
My father moved to Dublin and then to Bolton, Lanc's where i was born and then back to Dublin where we lived until i moved back to Monasterevan in 1990. I have three children, Keith, Jennifer,and Caroline. Can't help thinking there might be a connection with the two family's.
All the best for now,
