Cornelius SHANAHAN died in probably Dirreen, Athea, Co. Limerick.

Cornelius ran a very small farm, though to have been around an acre in size, in Dirreen, Athea, Co. Limerick.

I have been DNA matched with a great-great-great-granchild of Cornelius. I have a great-great-great-grandfather named Cornelius Shanahan and the type of DNA match ties in with both Corneliuses being the same person. However my Cornelius farmed in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co.
