William (Billy) CUNNINGHAM [Parents] was born on 1 Dec 1910 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane) village, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 1 Dec 1910 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Billy's baptismal sponsors were William Foran and Honora Shine.

Billy and his wife, Jo, were related. It is thought by a family member that they might have been third cousins, but the exact connection has not been established. We do know that Billy's father's name was Maurice and that Maurice's father's name was Bryan (Maurice's children were known as the 'Maurice Bryans'). However, it is not known if Maurice was a son of "Little Bryan" (which would make Jo and Billy third cousins once removed), or a son of Bryan Cunningham who married Johanna Hudson (which would make them first cousins once removed). However, given the information we have been provided by the family source it appears the former is more likely.

Billy was a fine singer. He inherited the Cunningham family home in Moyvane village.

Paddy was elected to Kerry County Council in 1942, and in 1943 he was elected as TD (Teachta Dála, meaning member of parliament) for Clann na Talún (the Farmers' Party). At a later stage he was elected to the Dáil as an Independent TD. He was never defeated at election time, and in 1969 he retired after 26 years in the Dáil. His main achievement as a TD was the implementation of the Brick and Cashen drainage scheme which proved vital in the prevention of flooding in north Kerry.

During World War II, Paddy played a role in bringing evacuated German children to North Kerry. These children would stay initially in Glencree, Co. Wicklow from where they would be sent to live with Irish families for the duration of the war. Paddy found homes for over twenty of these children in North Kerry. Two of the children lived with Paddy and his family, and one lived with Paddy's brother Jack and his family in Clounprohus, Moyvane. The children attended the local schools and even learned Irish.  

Elizabeth (Lily) HANRAHAN [Parents] was born on 10 Oct 1897 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 12 Oct 1897 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died on 10 Nov 1943 in Urlee, Lisselton, Co. Kerry. She was buried in St. Michael's Cemetery, Listowel, Co. Kerry. Elizabeth married Patrick (Paddy) FINUCANE in 1920 in Listowel Church, Co. Kerry.

Lily's baptismal sponsors were Jeremiah Hanrahan and Mary Hudson.

Prior to her marriage to Paddy, Lily's parents had arranged a marriage between her and someone else. However, Lily and Paddy had fallen in love, so they eloped. After their marriage they lived in Kilbaha where their first child was born. The move to Urlee in Lisselton (in about 1923) came about because they bought or were given the farm of Lily's uncle Mike Buckley and his wife, Maria (née Kissane) who had no children.

Lily and Paddy were second cousins once removed as Paddy's great-grandfather Bryan Cunningham and Lily's grandmother Margaret (Peg) Cunningham were brother and sister.

Lily was only 46 years of age when she died (of "bronchial asthma").
