Keanes of Murneen, Cuiltybo, and Upper Mace County Mayo- Claremorris Kilcolman P
Posted by: Mary Keane (ID *****5782) Date: May 07, 2010 at 11:18:17

My Keane's come from Mayo, a small place called Murneen, and there have been Keane's in that place since before Griffiths Valuation. However, the family became very much a part of the diaspora, with my grandfather, John Keane finally settling in Wales after WW2. His father, James Keane b. 1872, had the following siblings: John b. 1867, Bridget b. 1870, Denis, b. 1878, Martin b. 1880, Honor, b. 1882, Mary, b. 1885, Richard, b. 1888 and Patrick, b. 1873. They is an annotation that Mary Keane came to the US in 1917, settling in Chicago, where she married a Sweeney. I cannot find out anything about the other brothers and sisters, they all seem to have disappeared after the 1901 Irish census - I'm assuming that they emigrated. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks Mary
