Eucharistic Congress

~ Dublin 2012 ~

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. In the many Churches that have this adoration, the Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day and night. Christ’s great love for us was shown when he was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the Holy sacrament of the Eucharist. Can we not give Jesus one hour of love and adoration each week in return?
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration has been ongoing twenty fours a day, seven days a week for over twenty one years in Macroom (In the building to the right of the church) The door is always open to everyone.

But if you would like to commit yourself to one hour a week

I found a very interesting post on your website,
and am trying to follow some information that I read in that post. I have Attempted to contact the submitter of the e-mail, but I thought I would send you an e-mail as well to try and find any additional information that I can. I appreciate all the work you have done to make this information available to me. This is the e-mail I just sent to Peggy Millar:

I have
just discovered your webpage/Newsletter whilst "surfing" the net and felt I had to write to congratulate you on a very interesting and informative article. In fact I was thrilled when I found it and it has made me feel very "homesick" for Ireland and all my many cousins who live in various areas of Co. Cork. This webpage will certainly be a regular calling post for me from now on.

My Father, Michael O'Leary, was born in Ballyvourney in 1900,
the 2nd son of Jeremiah Leary and Mary Lehane. Mary was the daughter of John Lehane and Mary Riordan who lived in Rath, and Mary and Jeremiah were married in Ballyvogue RC Chapel in 1894. Mary Lehane, my GMother, had a brother John, born abt. 1872/3, and he migrated to USA in 1894 when he changed his name to LYONS which, apparently, is the Anglicised form of Lehane. He married an ABBIE LYONS and they settled in Brooklyn, NY, in 1930 and both died there in the 1940s. They did not have any children. My problem is that I cannot find where they married - in Co. Cork or USA. and did John marry using the name Lehane or Lyons?

I have done extensive research into Abbie's family and now know that she was a daughter of CORNELIUS LYONS/MARY LYONS, married abt 1867/8 who also migrated to USA..This couple had the following children all born in Co. Cork: John, stayed in Ireland and lived in Ballyvogue. Mary, married Andrew Desmond, MA. USA
Margaret Married Daniel McCarthy,MA. USA Daniel C. married Ellen Forde, CT.USA Abbie, married John Lyons [Lehane] Johanna [Anna] married Charles Winblade, Brooklyn, NY, USA Michael F, unmarried, died aged 23 in 1905 in Brooklyn Cornelius, no details. My big problem is that I cannot find the Townland of birth of these 2nd cousins of mine but I do know that the name Lyons is very well known in the Cannaway district and I am wondering if there is anyone who might recognise this family history. I live in Australia as my Father migrated out here in 1924 but have visited your beautiful country many times and have a very deep-seated love of it and its people. I have cousins in Cork, Coolea, Renanaree [?] Crosshaven, Myrtleville and Carrigaline but sadly they are not too interested in family history.

Please keep up
the good work with your webpage and I do look forward to visiting it on a regular basis.

God Bless you all

My response


Hello. my name is Wade Wachs and I am trying to find information about my great-great-grandparents Mary and Andrew Desmond.
I saw some information with your name on it that I think may be related to the information I have, and would like to know what else you have.

The research my grandfather (Robert Faull Wachs) has done shows Mary Nolan and Andrew Desmond as the parents of my great-grand-father Leonard Joseph Desmond (born abt. 1901), and that both of Leonard's parents were born in Ireland. I saw your post talking about your relative Abbie, the daughter of CORNELIUS
LYONS/MARY LYONS, married abt 1867/8 had a sister Mary that married an Andrew Desmond. I'm wondering if perhaps your Mary and Andrew are the same as the Mary and Andrew that I am looking for.

If you have any additional
information I would very much like to talk with you to see what we can find. Perhaps The name Nolan is another form that the LeHane or Lyons name took in the US. I look forward to your response.


The photos on this website are not of printable quality.

We would like to hear from Kilmurry Parishioners who are now living away from the parish - exiles near and far - from Macroom to Melbourne, from Ovens to Oregon.

If you tell us something about yourself, where you are now, what you are doing, news of your friends and family (those with you now and those you have left behind) we will be delighted to publish it.

Hopefully we will end up with an interesting list of entries which would be both useful and entertaining.
