Notes This Week:
What’s happening today at the Irish Roots Cafe

1) Meet the Author
We’ve been in touch with Keiron Curtis, author of
“P.S. O’Hegarty (1879 – 1955) Sinn Féin Fenian”..
ISBN: 978-1-84331-859-0
Note the front cover of Keirons book is from a photo of
O’Hegarty, taken while he sat in his library in 1952.
We’ll put a picture of his book on our enhanced podcast
and our blog, if I can figure it all out. It’s quite a story,
and of course, O’Hegarty is the man whose library now
rests at KU in Lawrence. His collection was the subject of
last weeks, and todays broadcast at the Irish Roots Cafe.
Photo Credits:
Our Thanks for Photos on enhanced podcast & Blogs to:
“Special Collections, Spencer Research Library.” (Book Shots)
“University Relations, University of Kansas.” (O’Hegarty Stacks)

2) ” K.U. Defeats Notre Dame ” ;) O’Hegarty Rules…
Here is a comment from JamieLM on last weeks show:
“One might think that Notre Dame would have the honor of
having the #1 Irish library, but I agree with you. I’ve been
to KU and have seen the special collections dept. Awesome.
It’d be a great opportunity to examine the collection for
those who had no problem with time and distance – like I
do. Someday…. I don’t think people like you get enough
thanks for the invaluable knowledge, services, and
resources you share with those of us who are interested in
Irish literature, history, and genealogy. Thank you. It’s a
privilege to read your columns.”

Todays Special Report:

Round the Table
This week we continue our interview with Elspeth Healey
at the Spencer Research Library at Kansas University in
Lawrence, Kansas. You will simply have to listen in
this week, to get the real scoop, but here are some
scribbled notes. (Yes, scribbled, as our proof-reader and
editor left for parts unknown some years ago).
These will give you the flavor of todays podcast items:

Rare Autograph Books
1) Paul Cussack book, autograph books from Frongach in
Wales where rebels from Easter Rising were interred.
Sinn Fein University, Irish Republicanism, training
ground for further movements. Contains sketches of
camp, signatures of people, line or two of comments in
Irish or English, or poetry, or sayings. Terrence
McSweeney…… signatures from 1921 from Mountjoy
Prison,
2) Autograph Book #2: Ballykinlar in 1921. Those interred.
Address both by hut number and by address in Ireland,
given by the individual. Sketches. John Eagan from
Cork; Nesbitt; one of a kind source, the orginal books
passed around the interment camps for signatures/notes.

Unique Printings
Local printing example ‘Connemara 30 years ago’ with
lithography and hand coloring. Poems and Stories, ‘a
talk in Joyces sand’  //// ‘she had no affection for her
kin… stories never told before about Connemara.’///

Yeats Connection
Yeats – O’Hegartys daughter was married to Yeats son,
so some inscriptions or sketches are to be found.
Yeats to his sister, etc… full run of lists of Coolagh
press with ballads, wood cuts by Jack Yeats, diversity of
material, advice translated by Lady Gregory to the Irish;
and American Indian… the American West idealized,
on covers 1908-1909.

Joyces Dubliners
Two items – one copy of poem ‘Gas from a Burner’ by
James Joyce which is a satirical poem about the refusal
to print the Dubliners. From the perspective of a printer
who destroys…. with hand inscription by Joyce in a
railway station waiting room after the destruction of the
first edition of the Dubliners. Then a program noted
below:
‘Announcement of play by Joyce, with advertisement by
publishers who were to first publish the Dubliners,
before its destruction.’ (end of written notes for this
collection – listed to podcast for more !.)

Coming to the Library ?
Go to online catalogue, call number, browse collection
in online catalogue search “O’Hegarty” call number
search will pull up the O’Hegarty call numbers. Pages
keep going as you browse. Also look at the O’Hegarty
library catalogue on hand at the library, a 4 volume set
of books in themselves. Also, feel free to contact them
for secret nooks and crannies….

Call ahead to the main Spencer Research Library, phone
number is listed on web site.
Leave a few minutes to register when making a visit.
Closed collection, so you cant browse the stacks, but
they will bring them to you ! No food or snacks in the
reading room, but plenty of refreshments nearby.

Healey History
Elspeth believes her grandfather was Irish, left Ireland
in the early 30’s, (a Healey from Limerick) and a sister
who went to Liverpool. Probably changed spelling to
‘Healy’ after immigrating.

She also reminds us that the KU Irish collections contain
something on every part of Irish Culture, and the depth of
materials is remarkable.

Irish Family Name of the Day:
Moloney

Todays family history in honor of :
John Maloney of Tolland, CT.

Related Spellings of the Name
Mallowney, Maloughney, Malowny, Maloney, O’Malowne, Moloney

From The Guide to the Various Spellings of Irish Family Names
http://www.irishroots.com/id4918.htm

Notes on the Name
The O’Molonys were a Dalcassion sept of Kiltanon, by Tulla,
in the eastern part of Co. Clare. They are found in Keatings
history and given as follows : ”The O’Moloneys were chiefs of
Cuiltenan, now the parish of Kiltonanlea in the barony of Tully,
County of Clare. They remain in the Clare, Limerick and
Tipperary regions.
In the 1890 index we find the name of Maloney in Limerick,
Clare and Tipperary with 119 births, and the spelling of
Malony had 34 births recorded. The census of 1659 finds
the spelling of O’Malowne being used, and as such it is given
as a principal name of County Cork …..

Related Spellings of the Name
Shoye; Cunnagher; Joice, de Jorse….

Varient Spelling Groups:   #967;
From The Guide to the Various Spellings of Irish Family Names
http://www.irishroots.com/id4918.htm

History of the Name
The Joyce, or de Jorse, family  came from Wales to Galway
in the reign of Edward I.  They formed alliances with the O’Flahertys,
chiefs of Connaught, and received large grants of land in
Connemarra, in the barony of Ross, and near the borders of Mayo a
large territory which is still known as Joyces’ country.  Here they are
‘very numerous to the present day’, and many of them were
remarkable for immense strength of body and gigantic stature.
They are also noted as one of the famous ‘Tribes of Galway’ which
are described in ‘The Families of Co. Galway, Ireland’ book.  There
are others centers for the name described in The Book of Irish
Families, great & small….

History of Ireland
CD of the Day

The fourth CD completed to date from our series, just finished up
last week.  We began the History of Ireland podcast in the last year
or so.  We had some good reference books on hand like the
Annals of Ireland by the Four Masters; Keatings “History of Ireland”
and the “Conquest of Ireland” and that’s to name a few that we have
produced over the last 30 years.
Peter Reillly Adams was co-host with me for the first season of the
Hedgerow History of Ireland.  His color commentary and decades
of teaching experience really added to the show.  We picked the
the top sessions to feature on this CD.
So, now, you can listen in on the go, in the car or in the backyard.
Share some of that history with the kids too now !
It’s available now at:
http://web.mac.com/irishpat/IrishRootsCafe/CD_DVD.html
