It may be presumed that the Traceys of Louth are descended from the Uí Bairrche.


It is presumed that the Traceys of Louth are of the Uí Bairrche, as there is also a high prevelance of Carneys and Gormans in that area. Similar to the Traceys of Wicklow, they are mainly located in the seaport of the county, Drogheda.












In Louth, there was Ballrassie, Tresach or Tracy's Park, near Drogheda, perhaps Baltray, named after the Traceys.

William le Yong, Robert le Yong, Robert Tracy, Robert Tanner, Adam Threl, John Pullehare, Walter Pullehare, Richard son of Roger Burgeys, Richard le Rede, William Bonde, John Bouer, and Richard Mowr, charged that when Richard Gernoun, sheriff of the said county, took one William McNeel, indicted before the sheriff of theft, and handed William over to the said William le Yong, etc., as prisoner of the King to lead to the castle of Drogheda, they permitted the said prisoner to go free and escape, whereby the whole country is damaged, come and say they received the said prisoner from the sheriff, as is aforesaid, and led him to the castle of Dublin and offered to Richard de Balybyn, constable, an open letter of the sheriff commanding the constable to receive the said prisoner from them; the constable refused to receive the letter and prisoner, whereupon they led back the prisoner to the town of Hathrede and put him bound in the house of Adam le White, and burdened the community of the town with the custody of the prisoner, from whose custody he afterwards escaped, so that William le Yong etc. are not guilty of the escape, and did not permit the prisoner otherwise to depart, and they put themselves on the country.

Old Age Pensions (Ireland).HC Deb 08 June 1910 vol 17 cc824-5 824

§ Mr. NOLAN asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to the case of a man, named Michael Tracey, seventy-two years of age, of the town of Drogheda, county Louth, who has applied for an old age pension and has been refused on the plea that his wife, who deserted him seventeen years ago and has been living apart from him ever since, has, during the separation, received Poor Law relief; whether he is aware that Tracey himself has been all his life a hard-working industrious man of good character, and has never at any time been a burden upon the rates; and whether he will cause this case to be further inquired into with a view to securing justice for this man who, through no fault of his own. has been declared ineligible for a pension?

§ Mr. BIRRELL The Local Government Board in January, 1909, disallowed Tracey's pension, as his wife had been in receipt of outdoor relief. The fact that a husband and wife live apart does not affect the statutory provision of the Poor Law Acts that relief given to a wife shall be considered as given to the husband; and Tracey was accordingly disqualified for a pension, under Sub-section (1) (a) of Section 3 of the Old Age Pensions Act.

Jun 9, 1910 (FJ) Pensions in Co. Louth

...Michael Tracey, 72 years of age, of the town of Drogheda, Co. Louth, who had applied for an old age pension and had been refused on the plea that his wife, who had deserted him 17 years ago and had been living apart from him ever since, had during the separation, received Poor Law relief; whether he was aware that Tracey himself had been a hard-working industrious man of good character, and had never at any time been a burden upon the rates;...Tracey was accordingly disqualified.

My dad (Mathew John Treacy – known as “Sean”) was born in Navan April 19th, 1929. His dad was Matthew Tracy, his mum was [Catherine] Ginnetty  He had two brothers, Michael Tracey and William Tracy (three different spellings of Tracy in the family) and two sisters, Rose and May Tracy. I know very little about his dad or mum’s background. He married May Boshell – my mum.


I am Michael Matthew John Treacy. My dad’s name had two spelling variants – one “t” in Mathew, in addition to the extra “e” in his surname. This has caused me quite some confusion, even forgetting how my “Matthew” is spelled! My dad joined the Royal Navy, and I was born in Londonderry (Derry), 13th October 1954, and then lived at various naval bases until we settled in Portsmouth in 1961. I now live in Phoenix, Arizona, USA – Professor of Physics at Arizona State University. I recently had my DNA tested, and it seems that I am essentially 95% Irish/British, with some Scandinavian and 0.2% Spanish/Portuguese (Spanish Armada survivors?).

Rev. Jeremiah F. Tracy (1821-1889) Pioneer Priest

One of the earliest Catholic settlements of Nebraska was founded in Dakota County in 1855 by a group under the leadership of Reverend J. F. Tracy. It was known as Saint Patrick Settlement, and from his church of Saint John, Father Tracy attended similar colonies in Omaha, and in Nebraska City.

Rev. Jeremiah F. Tracy was born in Drogheda, County Louth, Ireland, in 1821, came to America with his parents in 1831, and grew to manhood in Lancaster, Pa, where the family settled. After finishing his studies he was principal of the high school there for a few years. During the Know Nothing riots in Philadelphia in 1843-1844, he was honoured by being appointed one of the guards to protect the churches from destruction. In 1849 he entered the Catholic school for young men at Chicago, where after hard study and close application he received minor orders from Bishop Quarters, but was stricken with pneumonia and advised by the doctors to seek a more congenial climate away from the lakes. He went to Dubuque where he was adopted by Bishop Loras and finished his studies at the old St. Bernard’s college, Table Mound, and was ordained on June 24, 1850. At that time the cholera was raging in Dubuque and the young priest remained with his Bishop all that year and part of the next, unselfishly ministering to the spiritual and physical necessities of the sick and dying. In many stricken families Father Tracy’s name was a household word, and many now holding exalted positions and living in fine homes in Dubuque and other parts of Iowa, are children for whom he provided homes when their parents were stricken down with the cholera. Many times did he and the good Bishop Loras go without food for long periods so completely was their time taken up with ministering to the wants of the sick and dying

In the fall of 1851 he was appointed pastor of Garryown, Jackson county, Iowa, a large Irish Catholic settlement, where he built the large, substantial stone church, 50 by 105 feet, which is still used by that large parish. He also established a parochial school, which is still taught by the Sisters of Charity. In June, 1855, Father Tracy and his brother John crossed the state of Iowa and the Missouri River and explored the country and selected the site for his colony, which he brought there the following year. Returning to Dubuque he tried to induce some of the settlers around there to go to Nebraska, but they evidently thought they were far enough west already. He went east to find recruits for his colony, and while pursuing this work he met much opposition, particularly from Archbishop Hughes of New York, who denounced him and his scheme to take his innocent countrymen into the wilds of the west, where they might starve or suffer other untold misfortunes. This shows how great men may be mistaken in their views, as the Archbishop was by preferring to see the Irish immigrants remain in the slums of the great cities, subject to all their contaminating influences, instead of coming west to enjoy the pure air and glorious sunshine of the prairies, to live happy and virtuous lives, while enjoying the greatest degree of material prosperity as the members of this colony certainly did. Father Tracy made a canvass in the New England states, where he secured a number of recruits and the next spring started with them for Nebraska, coming from Dubuque by wagon, fording streams and rivers, and enduring great hardships in crossing the hitherto untrodden prairies. On June 1, 1856, they crossed the Missouri River at Sioux City and on the next day reached the selected site, which he named St. Johns, about a mile and a half north and east of the present site of Jackson. There were eighteen wagons and about sixty people in all, including his single brother John. Others followed the same year and the following years the colony grew to be a large and prosperous one.

For a short time mass was celebrated in a tent, but as soon as possible a log church was erected, which was later replaced by a frame structure. After getting the church and parish well established, Father Tracy looked around for scattered Catholics wherever he could find them. In June 1857 he celebrated the first Mass in Sioux City. In 1858 he founded a church in Council Bluffs, the first one erected there for white settlers. He visited points along the Missouri River as far north as Fort Randall.

After about four years of this strenuous life, his health failed and he left St Johns in 1860, and after remaining in Sioux City for a few months went south to the diocese of Mobile and was appointed pastor at Huntsville, Ala. During the Civil War he served as chaplin in General Rosecran’s army, but did not confine his ministrations to the Federal ranks alone, crossing and recrossing the lines, wherever he found sick and dying soldiers. After the war he returned to Mobile diocese, working until 1879 when he was striken with paralysis. He was taken to the Alexian Brother's Hospital in St. Louis where he passed away nine years later, March 1889.

The old town site for which Father Tracy had great expectations is now a farm and the only indication that it had existed is the cemetery on the hill overlooking it which is still used as "the city of the dead."

Toberdoney holy well is in the townland of Drumbilla in a field the property of Mr Tom Treanor of Drumbilla. It does not appear on the 1836 O.S. map but is marked and named on the 1910 edition. The earliest reference is in the O.S. Letters: 'In Drumbilla Townland there is a well called Tobar Domhnaighy at which there is a station on the first Sunday of the quarter'. On a visit in 1990, accompanied by my wife Kathleen, I had the pleasure of speaking to Mr Tom Treanor, and to Mr Willie Treacy from Shortstone who has an excellent knowledge of the history of the parish of Roche and of the well. Mr Treacy told a traditional story that around 250 years ago the well was used only for religious purposes but a local resident, rather than travel for water to a domestic well, violated the holy well by drawing water from it on an Easter Saturday evening. The following morning when the kettle was some time on the fire, blood overflowed from it. He immediately examined his water container again only to discover that the water in it had also turned blood red. He immediately returned to the holy well in the hope that someone had tampered with his container, only to find that the water in the well was as red as blood. It remained as such for the rest of that day but was found to be clear water on Easter Monday morning.

GAA Oral History

William Treacy recalls starting up his local GAA club in Louth, Roche Emmets. A group of locals used to play football together but they knew nothing about the rules or how to organise themselves. Eventually some experienced people came in and helped them start the club. They soon secured a field to play on and some goalposts, and they were on their way. William played for some years but an injury meant that he had to stop playing. He remained involved and helped to raise funds, contributed in an administrative capacity, and compiled a history of the club with two others. He recounts stories of his youth detailing the fun that they had, the trouble they got into and the great games that they witnessed.



Willie Treacy was captain of the first successful Roche Emmets team, the Second Division Championship winners of 1953.

Willie Treacy (1929-2017)


Mass reflected Willie’s life story

St. Brigid be with me until the road’s end, And help me walk through that gate as God’s friend

The family of the late Willie Treacy, Shortstone, Hackballscross, Dundalk, would like to sincerely thank everyone who helped to make his funeral so memorable; and share a few words about the wonderful celebration of his requiem Mass in the Church of the Most Holy Rosary, Bridge- a- Crinn, on 19 Sunday, 2017, the feast day of St. Joseph.

It was fitting that Willie, who passed away on 16 March, 2017, should relinquish this mortal coil at such a vibrant time of year. He loved the spring when every tree and flower is budding – new life coming to the land.

Torrential rain had ushered in the morning but as the cortege neared the church, the sun broke through changing the aspect into a shimmering brilliant scene.

A guard of honour, provided by Roche Emmets, took up its position to escort the former player and captain on his last journey.

The sweet strains of ‘Ashoken Farewell’ echoed through the church thronged with family friends and neighbours.

Glistening sunshine poured through stained glass windows, glancing off the sanctuary, where Rev. Fr. Michael Meade P.P. Summer Hill, Willie’s cousin, and Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Tom Griffin I.C., Faughart, wait- ed to receive Willie’s remains.

Sweet perfume from colourful flowers permeated the air. The peace and tranquillity seemed almost palpable as Sharon Treacy-Dunne intoned Willie’s poem ‘Hello God’ for the entrance reflection.

With the exception of baby Charlotte Treacy, then only four days old, all of the grandchildren took part in the ceremony.

The two altar servers, Danny Treacy and Conor Treacy, ably assisted Fr. Michael; Prayers of the Faithful were read by Oisín Treacy, Taidhg Treacy, Emma Treacy, Liam Dawe and James Dunne; the presentation of Gifts was by Sean Dawe, Danno Treacy, Darragh Treacy, Anna Treacy, Zoe Treacy and Harry Treacy.

Fr. Michael offered a very reverend Mass and gave a heartfelt homily.

Readers of the Word were Gerard Treacy, Adele Dawe and Denis Treacy, while the Offertory commentary was by William Treacy.

Violinists, Pat Treacy, Maria Dawe, Aisling and Richie Dunne, carried the senses to other worlds, tears stinging the eyes, so moving and heavenly was their music.

Music for the Offertory was ‘My Lagan Love’, and for Holy Communion was ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and ‘Bring Him Home’.

The beautiful playing of these familiar pieces filled the congregation with deepest sympathy and emotion.

Paddy Craven, Willie’s lifelong friend, introduced the Communion reflection with snippets of memories about Willie, describing how he could put on the “hat of a poet”, the “hat of a writer”, the “hat of an historian”, before giving a really sensitive rendition of Willie’s poem ‘ An Awakening’, in recognition of his devotion to St. Brigid.

The final music ‘Danny Boy’ by the violinists, again had tears springing to the eyes.

‘ The Minstrel Boy’ for the recession, kept all in step as the congregation processed from the Church following the coffin. Three times the pallbearers changed hands.

The sun shone brightly and Fr. Michael spoke the words of blessing and farewell as the coffin was gently lowered.

Patricia Treacy, of Hackballscross, Dundalk Co. Louth, is one of the most versatile virtuoso violinists that Ireland has ever produced. She studied with outstanding distinction under Pauline Scott at the London Guild hall of music and drama and travelled widely to continue her studies under the great maestro’s Pincas Zuckermann in Israel, Mauricio Fuks in Canada, Uto Ughi and Boris Belkin in Italy, and Igor Frolov of the Moscow conservatory of music.

The winner of many prestigious national music awards, Patricia went on to perform a wide repertoire at premier venues both nationally and internationally. She has broadcast on radio and television and performed as soloist with numerous orchestras and ensembles including the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, the RTE Concert Orchestra and the Irish Chamber Orchestra.

She is part of the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland.

A native of Hackballscross, near Dundalk, County Louth, She taught at St. Louis Secondary School Dundalk for 14 years before founding the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland (CBOI) in 1995. Her goal was to develop the orchestra as an educational, creative and artistic means of building relations between communities North and South of the border.

She was appointed to the Board of the Ulster-Scots Agency in December 2011. She has a special interest in the promotion on Ulster Scots music and culture, and has commissioned several works in the Ulster-Scots genre featuring Drum and Piping Corps with full symphony orchestra. This music has been performed in premier venues all over the world including Carnegie Hall, New York; Chicago Symphony Hall; Boston Symphony Hall; Shanghai Oriental Arts Centre; Shanghai World Expo 2012 and throughout Europe and Ireland.
