My 3 sisters and I are bringing the next generation to Ennis to stay at the nearby Strasburgh Manor, as we girls did 6 years ago. There will be 14 of us...8 arriving at Shannon on April 20th. We need to stop for a pint and to gather our strength...will we be welcomed for lunch?

Hi Kenneth, I don't know if you have already booked your flights, but if you are heading to Clare, it would be much more convenient to fly in to Shannon Airport.
As for accommodation, there is a large selection of B&Bs and hotels in Ennis.
Have a look on www.visitennis.com which will give you an idea what is available in the town.
Good luck with the planning!

Greetings from Berlin. Hope all is well in Ennis. I had a look at the The Pubs of Ennis photo project and found it quite fascinating! Nice to have them documented and a lot of work clearly went into it. It sounds like there's great craic to be had at the pub these days and the updates on the website and Facebook are great. Fair play to everyone for putting in the effort and making it such a positive, lively place!
Cheers, or 'Prost' as they say in Germany!
All the Best,
Jennie Moroney Butler
Hi - It is exciting to see photos of Moroneys on your website! My father was Daniel Patrick Moroney and his great grandfather was Thomas Moroney (born about 1817 in Ennis) who married Margaret Rafter (born about 1820 in Ennis.) They settled in the midwest of the United States in the early 1850's. I live in Maine (USA) just about 2 hours north of Boston.
My husband and I will be visiting Ireland next summer for about a week to celebrate our 30th anniversary and I can't wait to visit Moroney's! I plan to have more family research done before I arrive and hope to find a connection to the Moroney's currently living in Ennis.
Take care and see you next summer! Jennie Moroney Butler
Hi Moroney's bar!
My Moroney ancestors emigrated to Australia from Ennis mid 1850's. I live in Adelaide, South Australia.
Hope to get to Ireland one day. Will definitely call into the bar. Cheers all!

Not a patch on your mighty pint Charlie :-).As for the Euro's you might as well be on the moon, no one interested here and not a greyhound in sight ! Hulahul
I received it this past Tuesday and was going to send you a couple
of 'my' shirts in return. Your shirt is awesome! I wore it to a golf event
on Saturday and many people mentioned the shirt. My wife and I have
decided to plan our 45th wedding anniversary trip to your town rather than
take a cruise. It will be our first trip to Ireland, and the first trip to Ireland of
any of 4 generations of our Moroney family. We have some good Irish friends
here in Tucson that will come with us. Thank you very much for the shirt and
it is something I will hand down to my grandkids someday.
we are the Roscommon Moroneys,
