Edmond MULVIHILL was born about 1799. He died in May 1857 in probably Dooncaha, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He was buried in the large Mulvihill plot, Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Edmond married Julia 'UNKNOWN'.

Edmond farmed in Dooncaha, Tarbert. According to a number of online posts, he divided his land between his sons Edmond, Patrick and Jeremiah. Some of the property must have been in East Tarmons, which lies adjacent to Dooncaha, as Jeremiah's farm was situated in Wast Tarmons.  

It appears Edmond's family is closely related to the Mulvihills of Dirha (or Derry as it now seems to be called), Listowel, Co. Kerry as there is a large plot in Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane with several headstones naming members of Edmond's family (who lived in Dooncaha, Tarmons and in Ballygoughlin, Co. Limerick) and a Mulvihill family of Dirha. I have not yet managed to establish how the two families are connected; however, the Dirha family is descended from another Mulvihill family who had settled in Shronowen, Listowel (Jeremiah Mulvihill was born in Shronowen in 1843 and died in Dirha in 1910).

It is interesting that Edmond and his wife, Julia, along with various family members are buried, not in Tarbert, but in Murhur Cemetery in Moyvane. Could this indicate that Edmond's family had come from Moyvane (or Newtownsandes as it was then called)?

Note from Helen: neither my husband nor I are descended from Edmond. However, several members of my family, particularly those connected to my Cunningham family, married descendants of Edmund, hence my interest and their inclusion on this website.

Julia 'UNKNOWN' was born about 1803. She died on 10 Jun 1871 in Dooncaha, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. She was buried in the large Mulvihill plot, Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Julia married Edmond MULVIHILL.

When Julia died, the informant was Jeremiah Mulvihill of Dooncaha, probably her son. Just underneath Julia's name on the death register is a John Mulvihill of Dooncaha who died aged 11, the informant being (presumably) the same Jeremiah. John was probably Jeremiah's nephew, son of Edmond and Ellen Mulvihill, who was born in 1860.

They had the following children.

  M i Edmond MULVIHILL was born about 1824. He died in possibly 11 Aug 1910.

He died on 17 May 1966 in Gortdromasillihy, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was buried in Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Daniel married Julia STACK on 10 Jan 1931 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Danny's baptismal sponsors were Michael Kearney and Johanna Mulvihill. Danny was known as Danny Dan Mick (because his father was Dan and his grandfather Mick - this followed a nicknaming convention at the time to distinguish identically named people in an area). Danny may also have gone by the name of Donal.

Julia STACK [Parents] was born about 1896 in Moyvane South, Co. Kerry. She died on 25 Jan 1968 in Gortdromasillihy, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was buried in Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Julia married Daniel (Danny) Francis MULVIHILL on 10 Jan 1931 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Edmond MULVIHILL [Parents] was born about 1824 in probably Dooncaha, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He died in possibly 11 Aug 1910 in Dooncaha, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. Edmond married Ellen MOORE on 20 Feb 1855 in Glin, Co. Limerick.

Edmond farmed in Dooncaha, Tarbert. The land was eventually divided between three of his sons.

Edmund's brother Jeremiah was married to Margaret Moore, sister of Edmund's wife, Ellen.

A widower named Edmond Mulvihill from Dooncaha died there on 11 August 1910 aged 86. It is likely this was our Edmond above.

Ellen MOORE [Parents] was born about 1835 in probably Glin, Co. Limerick. She died on 3 Nov 1896 in Dooncaha, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. She was buried in the large Mulvihill plot, Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Ellen married Edmond MULVIHILL on 20 Feb 1855 in Glin, Co. Limerick.

A John Mulvihill died aged 11 in Dooncaha on 24 June 1871. This is likey to have been John above. The cause of death was haematemesis, from which he had been suffering for two days. The informant was a Jeremiah Mulvihill of Dooncaha, presumably his uncle.  The Patrick Mulvihill who died in 1874 was also from Dooncaha.

Edmund (Ned) MULVIHILL was born on 9 Jul 1890 in Tullamore, Shronowen, Co. Kerry. He died in probably 17 Jul 1953 in Shronowen, Co. Kerry.

An Edward Mulvihill of Tullamore, who was aged 62 and unmarried, drowned in the Gale river near his home on 17 July 1953. I think it likely this was our Ned above.

Cornelius (Con) MULVIHILL [Parents] was born in 1863 in Gortdromasillihy, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 20 Oct 1938 in Clieveragh, Listowel, Co. Kerry. Cornelius married Johanna (Annie) SLATTERY on 1 Nov 1905 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

A Cornelius Mulvihill died aged 69 in Clieveragh, Listowel, Co. Kerry on 20 October 1938. The informant was his widow, Annie. I am told Con and Annie lived in Bedford, Listowel, but as Clieveragh is adjacent to Bedford I am assuming that this was our Con above. His age at death does not tie in exactly with the year of birth I have for our Con (1863) but ages at death on death records in those days in rural Ireland were often unreliable.  

I have been told by a family source that Con was disinherited when he married Annie as she was so young. She was 20 and Con was about 42. This may have been the reason they moved after the marriage to Annie's native county of Waterford, where they lived for several years before returning to north Kerry.

Johanna (Annie) SLATTERY [Parents] was born on 7 Dec 1884 in Lyrattin, Ballinamult, Co. Waterford. She died after 20 Oct 1938 in probably Clieveragh, Listowel, Co. Kerry. Johanna married Cornelius (Con) MULVIHILL on 1 Nov 1905 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

According to the 1901 census, Annie was a 16 year-old student in  a house on Dirty Lane, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford (this was probably a convent). Somehow she ended up working afterwards as a housekeeper for the parish priest of Moyvane, Co. Kerry, a long distance in those days from her native Co. Waterford.

Annie and her husband, Con, had 14 children (seven boys and seven girls), all but one of whom emigrated (it was Jeremiah who stayed). The family lived in Boolavonteen, Mallinamult for a number of years and in Flowerhill, Lismore, Co. Waterford for a time before returning to north Kerry where they settled in Burntwood, Bedford, Listowel.

They had the following children.

  M i
Michael MULVIHILL was born on 4 Aug 1906 in Co. Waterford. He died.

A Michael Mulvihill who was born in Co. Waterford on 17 February 1909 filed a petition for naturalization in New York on 1 September 1931. He was living in the Bronx and worked as a shipping clerk. He had married Margaret (surname not given) on 22 November 1932 in New York and thay had one child, Margaret, born 3 June 1934 in New York. Could this be our Michael above, or a younger brother of Michael above if Michael above had died as a child?
