Biographies of Our Forefathers
Bernard Tinneny B58
Tinneny was born about 1846 according to the 1901 census.
His parents were John Tinneny and Isabella Reilly. He was
born on Goladuff and would have been
baptized at Saint Mary's Church in Newtownbutler. Baptisms
at Saint Mary's were not recorded prior to the second half
of the 19th century so his baptismal
information is not available. He was raised in a house which
was located on the top of a high hill on Goladuff
overlooking Quivvy lough, Galloon and
Derrysteaton. By todays definition the house would be called
a duplex since there were two houses under one roof.
This is the view from the site of Bernard and Margaretís
home high on the hill on Goladuff. The view is of Quivvy
lough and the Galloon bridge.

marrying Margaret McEntyre, Bernard remained in the home

built in it's place by Kate Tinneny in 1922 upon her return
