http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/ireland/2009/0411/1224244443575.html
Sean McDonagh, chairman for the commission, said the decision to move the competition to Philadelphia was based on the availability of facilities, including accommodation options, but also because Americans make up 75 per cent of competitors registered for this year’s championships.

They demand intelligence, optimism and virility and then some…

Irish Family Name of the Day:
Scanlon / Skanling

Todays family history in honor of gold member:
William Davis

Searching for info on
My mother was a Scanlon from Otsego Co. in NY, USA. I have
researched ancestors to a Peter Skanling(Scanlon) who immigrated
to America in 1802 from Ireland. Am interested in where he emigrated
from and general history of the Scanlons in Ireland.
Researching Scanlon family roots. A suspected  ancestor, Peter
Skanling(Scanlon), immigrated to the US from Ireland in 1802 and
lived in upstate NY. Interested in his family in Ireland.
_________________________________________________________

Related Spellings of the Name :
O’Scannell, Scanlan, Scanlane, Skanlane, O’Scannlain

(Taken from the Master Guide to the Various Spellings
of Irish Family Names

History of the Name
Families of the name of Scanlon can find their family commemorated
in place names such as Ballyscanlon, Ballymacscanlon, Scanlansland
and Scanlans Island in Ireland.
Those of the name may find origins from one of several different family lines.
Some descend from Mac Scannlain of Louth, others from O’Scannlain of the
province of Munster, and others still from O’Scannell of the north of Ireland
in counties Sligo and Donegal.  These names have been interchanged from
time to time, so origins may be difficult to determine without some specific
research.
Keatings History gives the family of O’Scanlon in Co. Kerry, and again
separately in Co. Limerick in the barony of Pubblebrien, along with the
MacArthur family.
The birth index shows 54 births of Scanlon and 42 births of Scanlan,
concentrated in Kerry, Clare, Sligo, Limerick and Cork.
Both the “O” and the “Mac” prefixes found before the name in earlier days
has been dropped for all practical research purposes today.

The above web page tells us :
“This centre offers a comprehensive genealogical service to people
tracing their County Sligo roots from all over the world.
County Sligo is situated on the North West coast of Ireland in the
province of Connacht. Like many other Irish counties, it has suffered
greatly from emigration over the last two centuries. According to the
Census returns a staggering 75,660 emigrated from Sligo in the
half-century from 1851-1901.

Prior to 1855, most of those emigrating from the port of Sligo took
their passage directly to North America, usually to New York, Boston,
Quebec and St. Johns. Since the 1850’s, the majority of the emigrants
took the coastal steamers to Glasgow or Liverpool from whence most
of them crossed the Atlantic in purpose built steamers. “

2)Barretstown Hole in the Wall Camp.
www.barretstown.org/content.asp?ContentId=877

“Barretstown was founded by Hollywood actor Paul Newman in 1994 after
the success of his Hole In The Wall Camps in the USA.
He had been looking at places in English-speaking countries to set up a
European camp, so the transfer of his concept would be easier.
He decided to set up the first camp at Barretstown Castle”

Curious News and Notes

1)  UFO’s have been spotted by the garda, politicians and
pilots recently in Ireland, centered around north Dublin and Meath.
Film footage was even made of the triangular object. Look for more.
Some speculate it is tied to recent excavations and artifacts !!!

2) Aer Lingus has been suffering losses and is cutting prices to
increase traffic and compete with budget airlines.

3) Want to find out the official Irish language name of places in Ireland?
A new web page has been launched that gives you that information for
100,000 locations, including Irish and English versions of the names.
http://www.logainm.ie/?uiLang=en

4) Reports say that 1500 pubs have closed in Ireland since 2001, due to
taxes on alcohol, increased home drinking and a decline in overall
consumption.

5) The QE2, the famous ocean cruiser is on her final voyage round the world
and was set to dock in Belfast recently as part of the farewell trip.

6) Paul Newman is noted for his ‘hole in the wall’ camps in the US that
have helped so many children, and remember also his camp at
Barretstown Castle, Co. Kildare, which he founded in 1994.  It was the
first European base he set up.
