I am researching the CONLAN (Conlon) family of the village of Island Eddy, which once existed in Galway Bay.
I am a descendant of one of the seven families who resided there at one time. The village
thrived during the 19th century and then declined in population due to emigration. In the
1970's there were only three inhabitants in residence. The island is no longer inhabited, but is
used for sheep grazing by some of the descendants who live nearby. The islanders had
contact, commerce and intermarriage with the surrounding communities of Oranmore,
Clarenbridge, Kilcolgan, Pollough, Ballindereen and Kinvara. I am trying to put together a bit
of history and genealogy of the island. If anyone thinks that their research might yield a
connection,and wishes to share information, please feel free to contact me.
