Glann, "A Valley Remembers" launch

Oughterard Newsletter February 2012

On Friday 6th January Glann, A Valley Remembers was officially launched at the Oughterard Golf Club. This book contains the local history of Glann Valley up until the golden jubilee of Our Lady of the Valley Church in 2010. This book would not have been possible without the contributions of Glann citizens who generously shared photographs, memories and life details with the committee. This project was made possible with assistance from Forum Connemara.

  • I think my great great grandmother Mary O’Sullivan (b. 1823 or 1826) was from Glann. She married my great great grandfather Philip Kelly in Oughterard in 1848 in the parish of Kilcummin. I wasn’t sure if Mary was from the Glann on the other side of Loch Corrib. But I think I know which Glann she was from now. I have been looking all over for info. on Glann. All I have to say is, well done! Now I can learn the history and culture of Glann, Co. Galway, where my ancestors came from. Thank you.

  • I would like to purchase a copy of this book. My SIL’s gt grandfather, Patrick Joyce, gave his birthplace as Glann, Galway, Ireland, on his marriage in 1877 in Rangiora, New Zealand. I need to find confirmation of this. ‘Possible’ parents Nicholas and Catherine.
