My husband's grandfather, William, came from Skehanagh, Co. Kerry. His great grandfather was Michael born 1820 and married Mary Brennan born 1847. Michael's father (great great grandfather) was Patrick and married Ellen Sullivan.

There are many Bowler's in Castlegregory and Dingle. Hope this information is helpful.

My Grandfather, John Bowler was born in Co Kerry in 1900 in the parish of Lispool. He emigrated to the states in 1920. I believe there is still several Bowlers in the Dingle area. I would love to find other Bowlers from the west of Ireland.

Hi James
At the time your grandfather was born (1900) there were a number of Bowler families in the Parish of Lispole. Goulin-2 families; Goulane 1 family; Banogue-2 families; Garrynadur- 1 family; Fogheroughmore -1 family. Also in the neighbouring townland of Ballingrane there was a Bowler family. Where in the US did your grandfather settle. There was a John Bowler who settled in Holyoke. He played Gaelic football. I would be interested in him. Also a Bowler family in San Francisco.
I looki forward to hearing from you.

Hello, my Bowler family is from Reycastle, Kells in County Kerry. I have cousins that are still in that area. My gg-grandfather was born circa 1846, but there is an old family story that his father came to Kells from Dingle (it is said they swam acrost the bay which is highly unlikely)!

In helping some cousins in Massachustts, I am trying to locate info on TIMOTHY BOWLER who came from LISPOLE around 1897 to HOLYOKE, MA. His parents were JOHN BOWLER and MARY LEARY. I can connect the dots for Timothy's descendants, but I have no knowledge of his siblings or parents.

Hi Tom
Did your Timothy marry a Nelligan from Ballinvounig, Dingle. I read of the marriage in an old newspaper. There were Bowler families in Goulane, Banogue and Garrynadur. I haven't seen O'Leary mentioned in any old records.
