John MORAHAN [Parents] was born about 15 Aug 1838 in Cloonmaan, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He was christened on 17 Aug 1838. He died on 22 Oct 1906 in Cortober, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He was buried in Ardcarne Cemetery, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. John married Catherine MORAHAN on 25 Jul 1870 in Cootehall, Boyle, Co. Roscommon.

John was a boat builder. During the 1870s he and his family appear to have been living in the townland of Cloonmaan in the parish of Tumna, Co. Roscommon, and at the time of the 1901 census they were living in the townland of Cortober in the parish of Killukin, Co. Roscommon, although a newspaper obituary for John (1906) tells he lived at Shannon View in Carrick-on-Shannon.

I am making an assumption that John was a brother of James Morahan another boat builder from the Carrick-on-Shannon area. This presumptive link is based on the fact that the father of both John and James was named Charles, both had Cortober connections and both were involved in the boat-making business. However I have no proof that they were in fact brother, which is why I have added a caution beside John's name. John and/or James may also have been related to the family of Bernard Morahan (born in the Carrick-on-Shannon area around the 1810s or 1820s), two of whose sons were coach builders.

There is an account on the Duchas website, www.duchas.ie, written as part of a 1930s school project on the history of Carrick-on-Shannon trades. Included is a brief description of the Morahan boat building business in the town:

"John Morahan and Sons, who lived on the Liberty, Carrick-on-Shannon were noted boat-builders. They turned out different kinds of boats including pleasuring-boats, turf-cotes etc. They made pleasuring boats for Lord Dudley, when Lord Lieutenant of Ireland." Mention is also made of the coach building business of the other Morahan family: "In the house now in possession of Mrs. Holt, wife of the late Mr. Holt, T. D. coach-building was carried on by a different family of Morahan." Note: This family of Morahans may have been the descendants of Bernard Morahan mentioned above.

Catherine MORAHAN [Parents] was born about 1851 in probably Cleaheen, Co. Roscommon. She died on 21 Feb 1926 in Shannon View, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She was buried in Ardcarne Cemetery, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. Catherine married John MORAHAN on 25 Jul 1870 in Cootehall, Boyle, Co. Roscommon.

It is not known if Catherine and her husband, John Morahan, were related.

They had the following children.

  M i James MORAHAN died in Oct 1957.
  M ii
Thomas MORAHAN was born on 24 Nov 1872 in Cloonmaan, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.
  F iii Mary Ann MORAHAN was born about 1874. She died after 30 Apr 1942.
  M iv Charles MORAHAN was born in 1876. He died on 1 Oct 1956.
  F v Catherine (Katie) MORAHAN was born on 29 Jun 1878. She died on 19 Sep 1959.
  M vi
John MORAHAN was born about 1879 in probably Cloonmaan, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He died on 30 Apr 1942 in 812 4th Avenue, San Francisco.

The 1901 census tells us that 20-year-old John was working at the time as a "rural post boy". He later worked in the boat-building business. A keen oarsman he was a prominent member of the Carrick-on-Shannon Rowing Club. He later emigrated to the United States and settled in the San Francisco area. He died at the home of his sister Mary.
  M vii
Patrick MORAHAN was born in probably Cloonmaan, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He died.

John (Jack) HARVEY [Parents] was born about 1872 in Red Bay, Kilmore, Co. Antrim. John married Mary Ann MORAHAN on 18 Jul 1900 in Church of St. Paul, Arran Quay, Dublin.

Jack was a policeman in Dublin.

Mary Ann MORAHAN [Parents] was born about 1874 in probably Cloonmaan, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She died after 30 Apr 1942 in San Francisco. Mary married John (Jack) HARVEY on 18 Jul 1900 in Church of St. Paul, Arran Quay, Dublin.

Mary lived in San Francisco, California. It appears her first husband, Jack, died relatively young and she subsequently married a Michael McDonnell. Michael was born about 1882 in Northern Ireland (Jack was also Northern Irish). Apparently Mary and Michael had a son named Michael who was born about 1908 in Northern Ireland and the family later moved to California where Michael worked for the Pacific Gas & Electric Company in San Francisco. However I have been unable so far to verify the above.

A younger sister of Mary's, Katie, married Paddy Harvey, a brother of Mary's husband Jack.

They had the following children.

  F i Mona Mary HARVEY was born on 17 Jan 1902. She died in 1997.

Patrick (Paddy) HARVEY [Parents] was born about 1876 in Red Bay, Kilmore, Co. Antrim. He died in 1940 in Glasgow. He was buried in St. Kentigern's Cemetery, Glasgow. Patrick married Catherine (Katie) MORAHAN on 24 May 1902 in St. Joseph's Church, Berkeley Road, Dublin.

Paddy worked a policeman from 1897 to 1907 (probably entirely in Dublin), after which he and his wife, Katie, moved to Lambhill, Glasgow where Paddy's brother George had settled. I am told Paddy ran a pub in the Glasgow area, and by the time of the marriage of his daughter Violet in 1930 he was living on Crossburn St. in Glasgow and working as an iron foundry labourer.

Catherine (Katie) MORAHAN [Parents] was born on 29 Jun 1878 in Cloonmaan, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She died on 19 Sep 1959 in Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. Catherine married Patrick (Paddy) HARVEY on 24 May 1902 in St. Joseph's Church, Berkeley Road, Dublin.

According to her obituary in The Leitrim Observer, Katie was a native of the townland of Cloonmaan in the parish of Tumna, Co. Roscommon. Her address at the time of her marriage (1902) was 18 St. Benedict's Gardens, Dublin. She married Patrick Harvey, a brother of John Harvey who was married to Katie's eldest sister, Mary.  

Around 1907 Katie and Patrick moved to Glasgow where they lived for more than 30 years. Following Patrick's death in 1940 Katie returned to Carrick-on-Shannon where she lived in St. Patrick's Park. Their son Patrick had  moved to Carrick-on-Shannon around 1919, and the family of their daughter Violet - and perhaps Violet herlelf - also settled in Carrick at some point.

They had the following children.

  M i
Patrick (Paddy) Gerard HARVEY was born on 9 Mar 1904 in 31 St. Michael's Terrace, Dublin. He died in 1990s in Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

Paddy moved from Glasgow to Carrick-on-Shannon in 1919. He was a keen oarsman and was a member of Carrick-on-Shannon Rowing Club. In 1933 he and four other club members were training on the Shannon when they got into difficulty. Paddy and one other rower survived but three drowned.

Paddy was a boat builder, carpenter and painter. He lived in St. Patrick's Park in Carrick-on-Shannon. It appears he never married.
