I am researching both of these families and have quite a bit of information. I am trying to find out about Michael Broderick the Father and Margaret Joyce Broderick, mother of Sir John Joyce Broderick Ryehill, Athenry. I would be delighted to share any information I have. John was born in 1882 and his birth was registered in the Dunmore District of Co Galway.

Sorry for the late reponse to your reply. My great great grandfather was John Calligan who was born in Galway Ireland and married Bridget Broderick (spelling??). You stated in your reply that you are also researching this for your ancestry? I am not sure if my great great grandmother is related to your family. She was born approximately in 1821 in Ireland I think?

Hello Marie,

I come from Ryehill, Athenry Co. Galway. Recently, the local graveyard - "Tobar Padraig" headstone details have been put on-line and there is a headstone for Michael Broderick (died 17/01/1902) and Margaret Broderick (died 14/12/1914). It appears Margarets parents: Patrick and Bridget Joyce are also buried there.
My elderly Mum tells me that when she married John Martyn in Ryehill in 1947, Sir John Joyce Broderick visited the house.
I would love to know more about Sir John's family. I would appreciate any information you have to share.
Thanking you,
Marie

Marie,

I believe John Joyce Broderick visited Ryehill probably in 1929. I believe he was in Ireland for the opening of the Ardnacrusha Power Plant that same year. My Father remember him and thought he was in Ardnacrusha representing the UK or other country.
Perhaps this could help.

Hello Marie

I don't think that it is the same Brodericks that we are talking about. Sir John Joyce Broderick died in 1933 in London and I think his wife eventually moved from the US where they were living to live in South Africa. He did have a family who stayed in the US.
I was interested in the Joyce connection - his mother was called Margaret Joyce and I think she was related to my mother's family. My mother was Margaret Concar who was born in Turloughmore in 1924, her grandmother was Honora Joyce and I think the connection is there. Hope this helps. Kindest regards Marie

Hello Eamonn, I think you could be right about that as he was working for the British Government as Ambassador to various countries throughout his career. He died in 1933 in London but was based in the US having been Ambassador to Washington, Cuba, Holland and maybe others. That's so weird about Ardnacrusha as my uncle, my mum's brother Tommy Concar worked there for most of his life after leaving Galway with his wife who was from Clare. He recently died but I think you are right in what you say. I just thought it was strange that a man born in Galway at that time ended up getting knighted and honoured by the British Government and that he was a distant relative of my mums who was born in Galway. Any other information much appreicated. Thanks again. Marie
