A history of the Crowley clans of Friars Walk, Cork City and their descendants
Crowley is a Cork name, though if you go back to 1200 A.D., we were blow ins from Roscommon.
Our Crowley clan originated like many others from Dunmanway in Co: Cork. James Crowley (1844) was born there. His son Daniel was a city man though. Most of this website is about his clan. Daniel (1872) and his wife Mary nee Mehegan (1881) set up house in the Ballyphehane area around 1901. They had 14 children and they lived at three locations, the last being on Friars Walk. Many of the Grandchildren have very fond memories of the place.
Here we are trying to keep these stories alive and available for all who are interested. We are also here to record the current goings on. Like any good Irish clan we can be found anywhere from the west coast of America to Japan.

Congratulations to John and Fuki Finucane on the birth of their son Louie(琉意) who was born on 18th January.
We would like to extend our deep sympathy to Don Crowley, whose wife Dee passed away on July 15th and to their children Dan, Alison and Aoife.
We want to congratulate Roy Crowley and Mags O’Brien on their wedding yesterday. We saw some great photos, great joy and a gentleman without a tie.
I have not got much information on the will of James Crowley. My father Dan was the last Crowley to work the Friars walk market garden and we left there sometime in 1955. I have many boyhood memories of it .It was compulsory purchased...
At this time 60 years ago LUKE NOEL was born to NOREEN and PEADAR CROWLEY in Cork City. They are gone now but never forgotten,
If you had to name all your Aunts and uncles, Una would be one of the first. Not because the others were less caring, loving or being glad to see them again. But Una was bubbly, asking questions, infectious. She stole the show.
