Jeremiah (Jerry) MULVIHILL died.

We do not know where Jerry was born but his son John farmed in Aughrim so Jerry may also have lived there. I am wondering if Jerry's family is blood-related to another Mulvihill family from Aughrim, that of Edmond Mulvihill, father of Denis (1822-1895) who farmed in Aughrim and who married Catherine Hanrahan in 1855. Denis and Catherine's daughter Ellen married John's son Patrick in 1898, suggesting the two families were close.

He had the following children.

  M i John MULVIHILL was born about 1834. He died on 14 Nov 1915.

John O'CONNELL [Parents] was born in 1847 in Lahardane, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. He died on 3 Jun 1930 in Melbourne. John married Bridget HARRINGTON on 25 Feb 1872 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Other marriages:
BAWDEN, Sarah

John emigrated to Australia in late 1875, settling in Melbourne, and I am told his wife, Bridget, did not accompany him. However, an obituary of Bridget's sister Ellie (1931) mentions a sister, Mrs. O'Connell, of Australia.

~According to family lore John was "a bit of a bounder". He had the bailiffs after him when he left Ireland and it appears he abandoned Bridget. It is believed that he never married Sarah Bowden with whom he had two children in Australia.

Bridget HARRINGTON [Parents] was born about 8 Jan 1853 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 10 Jan 1853 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died. Bridget married John O'CONNELL on 25 Feb 1872 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

The sponsor at Bridget's baptism was Denis Harrington.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses were James Morgan and Michael Hanrahan.

They had the following children.

  M i
John O'CONNELL was born in Lahardane, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. He died.
  M ii
James O'CONNELL was born on 30 Jul 1874 in Lahardane, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 3 Aug 1874 in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. He died before Jun 1930.
  M iii
Michael O'CONNELL (caution: not verified) was born on 5 Jul 1875 in Lahardane, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 12 Jul 1875 in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry.

Michael's mother's name appears as Mina (rather than the expected Bridget) Harrington on his baptismal record on www.irishgenealogy.ie, hence the caution.

It is possible that Michael died as a child as his father had another son (with Sarah Bawden) in 1890 who was named Michael.

Denis MULLANE [Parents] was born in probably Athea, Co. Limerick. He died. Denis married Honora KEARNEY (caution: not verified) on 17 Feb 1876 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Honora KEARNEY (caution: not verified) [Parents] was born in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Honora married Denis MULLANE on 17 Feb 1876 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

I am not completely certain that Daniel and Ellen Kearney had a daughter named Honora, hence the caution. However, a Honora Kearney, daughter of a Daniel Kearney of Kilbaha married a Denis Mullane in Moyvane in 1875. Honora is described on the marriage certificate as a minor, which may mean she was under the age of 18 at the time.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses were Maurice Scanlon and Michael Hanrahan.


John BUCKLEY died after 7 Feb 1880. John married Catherine SHANAHAN in 1858 in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry.

Catherine SHANAHAN was born about 1829 in Ardmore, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. She died before 30 Mar 1901. Catherine married John BUCKLEY in 1858 in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry.

I have been DNA-matched by Ancestry to several descendants of Catherine's. Given that my grandmother was a Shanahan from Kilbaha it seems most likely that I am connected to these descendants through the Shanahan family. However I do not have enough information to prove this.

They had the following children.

  F i Margaret (Maggie) BUCKLEY was born about 1858. She died on 16 Oct 1942.
  F ii Mary BUCKLEY was born in 1863. She died in 1928.

Michael J. O'CONNOR [Parents] was born about 1845 in Listowel, Co. Kerry. He died after 2 Apr 1911 in probably Listowel, Co. Kerry. Michael married Honora (Nora) HARRINGTON on 25 Sep 1887 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Other marriages:
MCKENNA, Ellen

Michael may have lived in the United States for a time because in the 1911 census, under 'County of Birth', Michael wrote "Born in Ireland, 4 in America". According to the 1901 census Michael was running a public house and living in Church St., Listowel, and by 1911 he was working as a shoemaker and the family was living in the Square, Listowel.

Honora (Nora) HARRINGTON [Parents] was born about 13 Nov 1856 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 15 Nov 1856 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.
