John O'RIORDAN [Parents] was born in possibly about 1808 in possibly Kanturk, Co. Cork. He died in possibly 12 Feb 1881 in Purt, Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. John married 'UNKNOWN'.

John's line of the O'Riordan family are known as 'The Yard" Riordans.

A John Riordan of Purt died aged 72 on 12 February 1881. This may have been John above. If so, then John would have been born about 1808.

'unknown' O'RIORDAN died in possibly Kanturk, Co. Cork.

A descendant of 'unknown' above has told me he may have been from Kanturk, Co. Cork. His sons John, Daniel and Maurice moved to Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick (about 50km distant), with John and Daniel settling in the parish of Purt (also spelled Port) in Abbeyfeale.

He had the following children.

Maurice O'RIORDAN [Parents] was born about 1821. He died on 2 Jul 1909 in Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. Maurice married 'UNKNOWN'.

Maurice was a publican in Abbeyfeale.

'UNKNOWN' died before 2 Jul 1909. 'UNKNOWN' married Maurice O'RIORDAN.


Daniel O'RIORDAN [Parents] was born in possibly Kanturk, Co. Cork. He died in Purt, Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. Daniel married 'UNKNOWN'.

According to Griffiths Valuation (c.1850), Daniel had about 73 acres in in Purt (also spelled Port), while his brother John had about 65. Going back further, when the Tithe Applotment books were compiled in 1829, there is ony one Riordan/O'Riordan listed in Purt and that was a Daniel Riordan and he had about 73 acres. This appears to have been our Daniel above, implying John had not yet moved to Purt from Kanturk. Or perhaps Daniel and John's father's name was Daniel and it was he who moved from Kantrk to Purt and it was he who was listed in the Title Applotments.

'UNKNOWN' died. 'UNKNOWN' married Daniel O'RIORDAN.

They had the following children.

Patrick (Paddy) O'RIORDAN [Parents] was born about 1847 in probably Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. He died on 5 Aug 1887 in Purt, Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. Patrick married Hanora O'CONNOR (caution: not verified) on 23 Feb 1878 in Murhur, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Pat died at the age of 40. His daughter Mary was born a month after his death.

Note: Purt is also spelled as Port.

Hanora O'CONNOR (caution: not verified) [Parents] was born in possibly Dirreen Lower, Athea, Co. Limerick. She died in probably Purt, Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. Hanora married Patrick (Paddy) O'RIORDAN on 23 Feb 1878 in Murhur, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

From the irishgenealogy.ie website we know that a Hanora O'Connor from Kilbaha, whose father's name was Patrick, married a Patrick Riordan of Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick on 23 February 1878. I think it likely Hanora was a daughter of our Patrick Connor so I have added her to the list of his children, along with a caution.
