Hello Fada, notes on the Irish language:

Books of the Month:

1)  Families of County Clare, Ireland (Hardbound)
For picture and detailed information go to:
http://www.irishroots.com/id4985.htm

We have covered lists of families in Clare from this book
earlier. Here are a few more extracts from the Clare Book:
The Viking Era
We have early records of Viking raids from Scandinavia which
included landings at Galway Bay on the north of Clare and up
the Shannon River into Limerick in the south of the county.
Clare formed in 1565
When the new geographical division called ‘Co. Clare’ was
formed in 1565, it would hold most of the territory earlier known
as Thomand.  In earlier times the territory of Thomand was
larger than Co. Clare, containing major parts of Co. Limerick
and Co. Tipperary, running to the borders of Kilkenny and
Queens County.  The exact boundaries were somewhat flexible,
rising and falling with the fortunes of the families of Thomand.
Location
Co. Clare is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the west, and
by Lough Derg and the Shannon river on the east and south.
It is thus separated from Tipperary, Limerick and Kerry.  These
natural barriers would become a part of the reason Clare
remained independent for so long.  They also give Clare a
flavor of its own.
Links to Surrounds
It is not surprising to find links between the families of Limerick, Tipperary and Clare.  Because of the close geography and
because of a shared history within the kingdom of Thomand.
In the 17th century we find Irish from all over Ireland ‘invited’
into Clare.  For example, dispossessed Irish in nearby Co. Kerry
were given rights to settle in the barony of the Burren in Co. Clare.
(see map for examples).

Six ancient cantreds of Thomand are sometimes given as:
(1) Hy Lochlean (O’Lochlainns territory),
(2) Ibh Caisin (Ibrickane- patrimony of the O’Briens),
(3) Hy Garman (Moyarta),
(4) Clan Cuilean (Clonderlaw, patrimony of …….. end of extract

2) The second book I have put together on County Clare is:
County Clare, Ireland. Genealogy and Family History Notes.
including Illustrations and Extracts
Cliffs of Moher A-2
Clare Records A-8
Surname Map: McNamara C-28

in Clare back a ways.

4) The History of Clare by White.

5) The History of Clare by Frost.
First introduced to me as a ‘chilling’ subject in Dublin Castle
back in 1980, and it took a few moments for me to get the play
on words, as I was one ‘serious’ researcher at the time.

Irish Family Name of the Day:
Hayes

Todays family history in honor of member:
Brendan Hayes of Fort Worth, Texas, searching in Co. Clare

Related Spellings of the Name

Hays, Haze, O’Hea, Heys, Hoy, Hea, O’Hugh, Heas

Varient Spelling Groups: #848  #1669  #2396
From The Guide to the Various Spellings of Irish Family Names
http://www.irishroots.com/id4918.htm

History of the Name

There are several unrelated families of the Hayes name found in
Ireland.   The older Irish name of O’Hea has often been changed
to Hayes, and Woulfe gives over 10 families who changed from
the older O’hAoda to O’Hea and Hayes.  O’Hea itself remained
as the main spelling in Co. Cork, but Hayes is also most often
found in that county in the 1890 index.
Keatings History finds the O’Heas as chiefs of Pobble O’Hea in
the barony of Carberry in Cork.  Further, “O’Haodha, O’Hea or
Hayes” was found as chief of Musgraidhe Luachra, which lay
between Kilmallock and Ardpatrick, in the barony of Coshlee in
Co. Limerick……partial extract from The Book of Irish Families….
In the 17th century both Hea and O’Hea were principal names
in Clare, and found in Cork, Limerick, Kerry, Tipperary and
Waterford…..partial extract from the Book of Irish Families….

Curious News and Notes, From Ireland today

1)  Pumpkins on the rise ! Halloween keeps growing in popularity
each year in Ireland, but pumpkin demand caught all by surprise
this year, with one retailer selling over 52,000 of them !  Fireworks
seem to be popular too – not so in the U.S. I think.

2)  Chile honors two patriots that originally came from Ireland:
Bernardo O’Higgins whose father was of Sligo, and is known as
the countries founding father; and John (Juan McKenna) born in Monaghan and served as commandant general of the Chilean army.

Stamps for the Irish in Chile
Chile issued 86 cent stamps in their honor, two stamps, with each
man dressed out in full military regalia !  Both men had to obtain education in Spain, as it was not available to them in Ireland,
which led to the Chile connection !

3)  100 year old Mr. Archie Holmes gives recipe for long life,

The Irish Song and Recitation Festival
From the Irish Roots Cafe at www.Irishroots.com
With Your Host Mike O’Laughlin

Todays Song:  Skibbereen
Sung by:  Mike O’Laughlin
run time: 4:00

Listen to this song now on our MySpace profile at:
http://www.myspace.com/irishsongfest

Listen to this song and comments on todays podcast:
http://www.irishroots.com/podcast3/irishsong34.mp3

Listen to all of our songs and festival interviews on our home page at:
http://www.irishroots.com/content/view/99/145/

Shownotes:

The song is all about Skibereen and events,
in County Cork, Ireland, during the famine era.
It opens with a child asking his father why
he left Ireland, especially since he hears so
many good accounts of the country.
Skibbereen is well known historically for the
desolation wrought upon it during the famine
period in Ireland.  I believe there has been
commemorations of the same into recent
times.

Famine Tragedy
The fathers reply continues to expand during
the song, including the potato blight; eviction
by the landlord; burning of the roof to the house;
the death of the childs mother; Rebelling against
the Queen; and the final escape from Skibbereen.
The final verse deals with justice to be dealt in
the future, for all the wrongs inflicted.

Variations
There are variations in the lyrics, some leave
off the last two stanzas, and minor changes in
the words here and there, but the song remains
true to its intentions.  You will also find the town
name spelled as Skibbereen and Skibereen.
Mikes lyrics are those used most often here at
the Irish Roots Cafe.

Style of this song
The singer today, our host Michael O’Laughlin,
does not model the style of this song on a particular artist past or present.

Though not at all as popular now
as in the past, and seldom heard in a live performance,
it is almost always done with musical accompaniment

Lyrics (one of several variations):

Skibbereen
Oh father dear, I oft-times hear you speak of Erin’s isle
Her lofty hills, her valleys green, her mountains rude and wild
They say she is a lovely land wherein a saint might dwell
So why did you abandon her, the reason to me tell.

Oh son, I loved my native land with energy and pride
Till a blight came o’er the praties; my sheep, my cattle died
My rent and taxes went unpaid, I could not them redeem
And that’s the cruel reason why I left old Skibbereen.

Oh well do I remember that bleak December day
The landlord and the sheriff came to take us all away
They set my roof on fire with their cursed English spleen
I heaved a sigh and bade goodbye to dear old Skibbereen.

Your mother too, God rest her soul, fell on the stony ground
She fainted in her anguish seeing desolation ’round
She never rose but passed away from life to immortal dream
She found a quiet grave, me boy, in dear old Skibbereen.

And you were only two years old and feeble was your frame
I could not leave you with my friends for you bore your father’s name
I wrapped you in my cóta mór in the dead of night unseen
I heaved a sigh and bade goodbye to dear old Skibbereen.

Oh father dear, the day will come when in answer to the call
All Irish men of freedom stern will rally one and all
I’ll be the man to lead the band beneath the flag of green
And loud and clear we’ll raise the cheer, Revenge for Skibbereen!
