Fáilte Romhat (‘Welcome to you’ : Irish words) John Hayes website, many a person has been to this site and many have left it with so much information that they had not when they first got there.  I wonder do they ever look to see who it was created the site or, do people think like that any more? Do they ever think now, ‘a person had the idea that this would be good information?’  Do they ever wonder, ‘How long did it take him to put this together?’ or, ‘How much did it cost him, money wise to collect this information?’

For anyone with ancestry in Clonakilty, Co. Cork, Ireland it is a fantastic website, for anyone else with ancestry in Cork it is also a fantastic website.

Let’s see – we have

Hayes genealogy
the O’Hea Pedigree

Selected marriage records
Quaker material
Hearth Money Rolls
Flax Growers
Lewis Topographical Dictionary of Cork
At least 7 Directories
Tithe Defaulters Cork, 1831

12 sets of Cemetery transcriptions or images
7 sets of maps, including a road map for 1777

I count 18 books that he has online, including “A Tour of Ireland 1776-77”

Clonakilty History – Magic for anyone from that area
Clonakilty Maps – wow

And then links, lots of them.

I’m not from Clonakilty though I do know the town.  I’d like to thank John Hayes or all the work he put into the creation and the maintenance of this website. I am giving you a link to his Map of Ireland page (Irish Free State) because many of you may not have this map.  Below, I have copied the words from the Home Page so that in my writing of this page I will not have excluded those who John thanks for contributing to his site.

Irish Free State Map

The words on the Fáilte Romhat Home page from John Hayes
“Welcome, this site contains genealogical information extracted from various census, directories, cemeteries and newspapers. Free sources of Irish genealogical information are rare on the internet!. This site offers a number of online Irish databases and transcribed documents, including Land Owners in Ireland 1876, Irish Flax Growers List 1796, Pigot & Co’s Provincial Directory of Ireland 1824, Slater’s Commercial Directory of Ireland 1846, Guy’s Postal Directory of Cork 1914 and cemetery transcriptions and photographs.

I would like to thank all those who have provided information for use on this site, especially Enda Lee, Henry McFadden, Jean Prendergast, Dave Sherry, Ginni Swanton, Sean Ahearn  and Jeffrey Wainwright.

Contributions of historical or genealogical interest for West Cork welcomed and appreciated. This site reflects my own interest in genealogy, but I am not a professional genealogist and I am unable to answer individual research questions.  Names currently being researched are Hayes, O’Connor, Brown, Fox, Santry, Callaghan and Murphy. My paternal grandfather came from Derryduff near Rosscarbery, my paternal grandmother was born in Dingle. My maternal grandparents came from Mullagh, Moynalty, Tierworker areas of Meath/Cavan.”

Directories set out to record the ‘principal inhabitants’ of a community, particularly those in trade or the professions. Directories were put together by individuals and publishers for commercial purposes at intervals during the late 18th and 19th centuries. Here is the 1931 Trade Directory, exclusive to From-Ireland.net:

In Ireland, many of the towns had a square, and around the square were houses (homes) with one or two shops or business’s. The streets of the town all went from that square. Most towns had a ‘Main street’ – some called it a High street, and it was usually on that main street that the majority of shops and businesses were located. Shops had one or two large windows depending on the size of the shop. Many Public houses had a grocery section. You walked in the door and the grocery section was at the front of the shop with the pub at the back – usually a wooden division separating both. The Grocer or Publican may have had a field or more behind the building, cows were milked and the milk was sold to those who would bring in their ‘Jimmy’ cans. Most business men/people had more than one occupation. The Publican as described above was also the Grocer and if he sold milk then he could also be described as a Dairy man. As you go through this list of names you will see that many.
