Edward Voakley (Vauclier), late of Tralee, in the barony of Trughenackmy, county of Kerry, gent., being duly sworn and examined before me by virtue of a Commission for Enquiring into the losses sustained by his Majesty's loyal subjects in the late troubles, deposeth and saith: That, upon the 20 January, 1641, he lost, was robbed, and forcibly despoyled of his goods and chattels to the several values following, viz.: Of cowes, horses, mares, oxen, sheep, and swine to the value of £400; of household stuffe to the value of £21; of ready money to the value of £120; of wearing apparel to the value of £50; of corn and hay in house and haggard to the value of £260; of debts to the value of £500, which, ere this rebellion, were esteemed good debts, but now are become desperate, by reason some of the debtors are become impoverished Protestants, as John Mason, John Barrett, Arthur Rawleigh, and divers others, which this deponent did (sic) not now remember; and the rest Papists and rebels, as Garrett Fitzgerald at BallymacDaniel, Gen. Finine McDermott Carthy, of Glanerought; Thomas Malone, of the parish of Clogherbrien gent.; Edmund Moore O'Shane, of Ardglass, gent.; Cnogher Trassey, of Ballinerough, husbandman; Philim MacFineen Carthy, of Dromvallagh, gent.; Christopher Hickson, of Knockglass, gent.; John Granal, of same, gent.; all of the county of Kerry, and divers others, which this deponent cannot now remember…..

February 1867 Fenian Movement in Kerry

...Mr. Matthew Tracy, the reporter of the Cork Herald, tried to telegraph that there was disaffection among the troops. The RM stopped the telegraph and arrested Tracy...

QUESTION.HC Deb 01 March 1867 vol 185 cc1233-4

LORD NAAS Sir, on the 20th of February a telegram was taken to the telegraph clerk at Killarney to this effect— Rumoured disaffection of troops. Officers heard men singing songs with civilians. Removed by police. Military sent to quarters. Fourteen soldiers missing this morning. A wire cut last night at Cluanmullane. I need hardly assure the House that with the exception of the last—the cutting of the telegraph wire—the whole was entirely false. On this message being taken to the magistrates by the person charged with the conduct of the telegraph at Killarney, the magistrates thought it their duty to order the arrest of the person who was proved to have sent the telegram. It turned out that the gentleman's name was Tracey, and that he was a reporter of the Cork Herald. The magistrates considered that this person, in sending this message, had been guilty of a very serious offence against the law of the land; and they committed him to take his trial at the ensuing assizes. Bail, however, was offered on his part and accepted. As the trial is pending, and as this gentleman has given notice of his intention to take action at law against the magistrates for false imprisonment, I am sure the House will feel that I should exceed my duty if I expressed any opinion on the transaction.

Letters and Leaders of my Day T. M. Healy, K. C.

Father Tracy's brother, Mat, a reporter on the Cork Examiner, was a "character." He was dispatched during the Fenian Rising of 1867 in Kerry by its owner, J. F. Maguire (M.P for Dungarvan), to report events. Mat, equipped with a musket plus a lead-pencil, set forth and was speedily arrested. Telegraphic communication between England and Ireland was then in its infancy, and the Government had no details of Mat's activities. Maguire, in his reporter's bona fides, demanded in the House of Commons satisfaction for his arrest from Lord Naas, the Chief Secretary of the day. That nobleman (afterwards Lord Mayo, the murdered Indian Viceroy) effused in apology, and agreed that the arrest was an infringement of the "liberty of the Press." Maguire urged that compensation should be paid. Lord Naas concurred. Whether £100 or £500 was given, it was too much for Mat. Friends gathered round him night after night, to enjoy his compensation and hospitality. At the end of his jovial evenings he would raise his glass in pathetic self-pity, crying, "Ah, boys! The British Government has been the ruin of me!"

9 January 1875 (N)

A few evenings since a farmer named Tracey, residing at Kiltean, within a few miles of Listowel, left home on horseback to attend a funeral, and on his return from Kiltorney he turned down to the river near Finague, where it is fordable, for the purposed of crossing it, and taking a short homewards. When he entered the river the horse and rider rolled into the deep water. In the fall the unfortunate man was so stunned as to be unable to make any exertion to recover himself, and in a few moments after his inanimate body was swept down with the current into the tidal water.

In April 2011, 14 year old Oisin, was the Feis Ceoil talented gold medal winning trumpeter, and performed on the John Murray Show on RTE Radio One on the 14th April 2011.








Pádraig Treacy (b. 1953)


Track 1: Pádraig Treacy recalls his grandfather who served in the RIC and who arrived in Killarney in 1909. He later worked as gatekeeper for Lord Kenmare. Pádraig’s father, Marcus, was a teacher in the Killarney area, and his mother, Marie O’Sullivan, came to Killarney to work at the Ross Hotel, owned by her aunt, Julia O’Donoghue. The premises was then known as the Kenmare Arms Hotel, and it was bequeathed to Marie O’Sullivan during the years of WWII.

Track 2: Pádraig discusses his childhood at the Ross Hotel, his education and his work experience for five years in car sales at Jimmy The Master’s garage. With his wife Janet, he then set to work to build up business at the Ross Hotel in the 1970s and 1980s.

Track 3: He recalls their plans for expansion which involved purchasing land at Fossa, and the eventual building of the Park Hotel in the field adjoining Cooper’s Cinema in 1989. His dealings with the UDC, in particular with Town Manager Paddy d’Arcy, and the support given to him to enable him to build the hotel, are described.

Track 4: The opening of the hotel, designed by architect Roddy Horgan, in 1992 and the huge task which lay ahead at that time are recalled.

Track 5: Pádraig discusses his decision to create a contemporary rather than a more traditional style of building at that time, and he also recalls the work of County Engineer, Colm Kennelly.

Track 6: The positive relationship which exists between the members of the Town Council, the business people and the community groups in Killarney is emphasised.





The Ross Hotel is steeped in history and an integral part of Killarney. The hotel has been part of the Treacy family since 1938, when Marie Treacy purchased the hotel from her Aunt Julia O’ Donoghue (née Scott) for whom she worked for a number of years at this landmark Killarney hotel.

Marie ran the hotel tirelessly and successfully for over four decades until her son Pádraig joined the family business in the late 1970’s.

Padraig and his wife Janet took over the management of The Ross in 1983, and the hotel was fully refurbished into its chic, quirky boutique style status in 2006. In 2009 Padraig and Janet’s daughter Ciara joined the family business and runs the ship today alongside her colleague Eleanor O’Doherty who has been part of The Ross story since 1985.

Subsequently Padraig and Janet Treacy built a sister property the 5 star Killarney Park Hotel just across the road at East Avenue, which opened its doors in 1992.
