Hi all,

I'm looking for information regarding the Quinlans of Tralee. My great great grandfather was the county secretary, P.M. Quinlan. My great grandfather, Maurice Quinlan, was the T.B. doctor of the area and lived in Blennerville. His wife, Catherine (nee Timony, Mayo), was also a doctor. I am also related to the Murphys of Castleisland. Any information would be gladly received!

Hi, Do you have a Patrick Aloysius Quinlan b.around 1926 in your Tralee line? I am looking for Quinlan ancestors in this area too. Many thanks.

Hi,
PM was the son of Maurice Quinlan and Johanna Sullivan from Farran near Castleisland. Maurice was a dairy farmer and chairman of the Tralee district Board of Guardians so would have had a high profile in the area as well as being Head of the Land League for the area. The Land League had two primary aims - Reduce land rents to a fair level and increase ownership of the land by those who farmed it. Maurice was also known as Captain Moonlight head of moonlighters who were a more violent organisation who basically terrorised people in the dead of night. Those who occupied farms of evicted tenants, or did business with them, were constantly under threat of being moonlighted.

Hi there KathleenGeorge68!

I have a Patrick Aloysius Quinlan born in 1896. He could well have had a son called after him born in and around 1926. He had a daughter called Norah born in 1929, who seems to have sadly died of TB in 1951. My great grandfather is Patrick's brother. What else do you need to know? And what do you know of the Quinlans?

Thanks!
Yvonne

I have Maurice Quinlan (b. 1822) and Joanna Sullivan in my tree for them but I can't be a 100% of either! I have nothing else on them at the moment.

Thanks for this! I know PM Quinlan was a Moonlighter, and spent time in prison for it, but I didn't know about his father!
