2 April 1904 (AC) Mr. Patrick Treacy, Clones

Having learned that Mr Patk Treacy is about to leave Clones to take up business in a neighbouring town, a number of friends in Clones have formed a committee for the purpose of presenting him with a testimonial to express the esteem and regard in which he is held by all classes. There is no doubt that the co-operation of all Clones people will be forthcoming for this thoughtful and worthy project when they are made aware of it. Mr Treacy has been connected with Clones for many years, during which he enjoyed a unique popularity. In his early days he was closely connected with Sir Thomas (then Mr. Or Tom) Lipton, at the outset of that remarkable man's career, and outside Mr Lipton himself there is probably no man living who knows more of the history of the distinguished baronet from the time when he started his provision shops in Candleriggs, Glasgow, until he found himself the owner of the biggest provision business in the world, than Mr Treacy. On leaving Glasgow, Mr. Treacy was appointed to the charge of Lipton's store and distributing station at Clones, from which post he subsequently retired. He was a member of Clones Urban Council for a number of years, but withdrew from that position to the regret of his colleagues and the electors. Mr. Treacy is a Nationalist of the most advanced views, but[?] the reverse of bigoted, and enjoys the esteem and respect of persons of every political and religious opinion. Since the death of his wife a couple of years ago, he has taken little or no part in public affairs in Clones. His departure from the town will be deeply regretted by all who knew him.

 FAMILY HISTORIES

 

 

James Tracy (s. of William Tracy) m. Anne Logan (d. of James Logan) 15 Jun 1848 Monaghan

 

James Tracey & Mary McGuire [see Drumragh Tyrone]

I’m researching James Tracey and his family. James Tracey/Treacy was born about 1843 and lived in Co. Tyrone (Drumragh and Omagh).  He married Mary McGuire who was born about 1845 (presumably in Co. Tyrone, but I’m not sure).  They had a number of children, with Jane being the last one (I believe) born in 1881.

By 1891, the family was living in Glasgow, Scotland.  Jane Tracey married Edward Murray. Edward was born in Co. Monaghan, Ireland.  Edward and Jane moved back to Ireland (Co. Monaghan) probably before 1917, where they lived with Edward’s mother.  It looks like Jane Murray née Tracey died early in 1917.

Are these people you’re following?  Jane was my great-grandmother and I’m still looking for information on her and her family.  Can you suggest where to find more information?

Thanks,

The Tracy Family of Clones, Co. Monaghan are now in the band business, providing Ceili music all over the republic. The band was founded and is managed by 21 year old Des Tracy who plays the piano accordion. His 23 year old brother Paddy is in charge of the drums while their sister Ena, aged 20, performs on the piano and accordion. Des has given up his job as a garage mechanic. Ena is a drapers assistant and Paddy is a cinema projectionist. (1955 Irish Times)

 

From the mid 1950’s the famous “Des Tracy Trio” from Clones were one of the most popular dance bands in this north midlands area from the mid fifties until the era of the dance hall craze faded out some years ago. The trio then were Des (center), his late sister Ena (RIP) on piano and the late Dominic Monaghan (RIP) on drums. They were all from Clones but Des Tracy was born in Arva but his family moved to Clones where Des and Ena grew up and Des lived most of his working life there while working in Northern Ireland as a company representative. Des later moved to Kingscourt where he lived and spent the remainder of his working life and was a very popular musician playing solo in the adjoining parts of the counties of Cavan, Meath and Monaghan. Des has been a lifelong friend of mine [Bailieboro News] from when he played at the first dance that I ‘took the floor’ at (and walked on girls toes). We were in the FCA together since the early fifties and we were both army drivers of the old Ford V8 FCA station wagons. Des was a driver of the Monaghan Batt, station wagon and I was a driver of the East Cavan Batt. Station wagon.

 

In December 2013, After many requests from his friends and family, Des Tracey has finally got down and recorded his first CD of accordion music, titled “My Kind of Music.”
