The primary purpose of this website is to assemble and share information relating to the heritage of the parish of Tierworker (also known as Moybolgue) in Ireland.
DonnellyCanada is an informal cooperative to be composed of members who support the objectives of the Heritage Tierworker program.
If Heritage Tierworker is something that interests you, you are cordially invited to become a member of the DonnellyCanada Cooperative by completing the Membership Log-in Form. As a member, you will be able to write your own articles and submit them for publication on this website - it is not difficult!
You can do any and all of the following:
01Provide your own stories, old photos, and your own family memoirs to be a part of the record for Heritage Tierworker
02Buy the book "THE EYES THAT SHONE: From Ireland to Canada in the 1950s". This is the first project to be completed within the Heritage Tierworker program
03Register to become a member of the DonnellyCanada Cooperative, and post your own memoirs, articles, photos and maps
04Create your own blog, and post comments on the blog posts of other members
Use the SEARCH feature at the top right hand corner of the page to find names of people, places, events, and much more on this website.
Wherever you are in the world, and whatever your age, if you have a family connection to a parish or townland in the country centred on the towns of Bailieboro, Shercock, Kingscourt, Moynalty near the border between County Meath and County Cavan in Ireland, you can use the DonnellyCanada website to help write a chapter of Heritage Tierworker.
