I have just joined the IGRS following some years of family history research. I am particularly interested in the Foley family of Gortloughra, Killorglin parish, County Kerry. They also gave their address as Coomcloghaun which is a small lake within the townland. I notice that Jean McCormack has observed the many family nicknames that proliferate where a surname is very common. This is true of my ancestors who were known as the ‘Liam Ogs’ after my Gt Gt Grandfather William Foley ( circa 1805-1900).
