Denis (Denny) HANRAHAN [Parents] was born in May 1833 in Kilbaha South, Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 25 May 1833 in Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry. He died about 1877 in Moohane, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. Denis married Margaret COLLINS on 16 Feb 1863 in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry.

Baptismal sponsors were Patrick Sheehan and Ellen Sheehan.

Margaret inherited the Collins family farm in Moohane where she and her husband, Denny, lived. The farm had originally belonged to the Enright family - Margaret's mother was an Enright - who I am told were landlords and lived in Garryard, near Listowel, Co. Kerry. The Moohane farm was given to Margaret's mother when she married William Collins.

Margaret COLLINS [Parents] was born about 1842 in Moohane, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. She died on 4 Jul 1923 in Moohane, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. She was buried in Killehenny Cemetery, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. Margaret married Denis (Denny) HANRAHAN on 16 Feb 1863 in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry.

They had the following children.

  F i Jane HANRAHAN was born about 28 Jan 1864. She died on 29 Jul 1926.
  F ii Ann (Annie) Catherine HANRAHAN was born about 14 Oct 1865. She died on 12 Aug 1951.
  M iii John (John Denny) HANRAHAN was born about 23 Jan 1868. He died on 28 Feb 1946.
  M iv William HANRAHAN was born about 3 Sep 1869. He died on 29 Jul 1946.
  M v Timothy Denis HANRAHAN was born about 20 Jul 1871. He died on 25 Apr 1942.
  M vi
Michael (Mike Denny) HANRAHAN was born about 1 May 1873 in Moohane, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 3 May 1873 in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry.

Unfortunately we have no further information on Mike.
  F vii Catherine HANRAHAN was born about 5 Mar 1875. She died on 25 Oct 1955.

James (Jim) HANRAHAN [Parents] was born in possibly about 1832 in Kilbaha South, Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry. He died on 27 Aug 1907 in Kilbaha South, Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry. James married Ellen SHEAHAN.

There is a 1901 census return for the household of a James Hanrahan, aged 68, of Kilbaha North. It is likely this James is our Jim above.

The full census details are:
James (68)
Ellen (60), wife
John (38), son
Denis (20), son
Ellie (14), daughter

The 1911 return shows John, Jim's son, as the head of his own household in Kilbaha South. Details are:
John J. (47)
Annie (30), wife
Ellie (7), daughter
Bridget (5), daughter
Johanna (3), daughter
James (2), son
Jerry (8 months), son
Ellen (74), mother (who could speak both Irish and English)
Denis (28), brother
John J. and Annie had been married eight years and had five children born alive, all of whom were alive at the time of the census.

Baptismal records have been located for the following children born to a James Hanrahan and Ellen Sheahan of Kilbaha:

John (baptised on 4 January 1863 with sponsors Michael Hanrahan and Margaret Cunningham)
Patrick (baptised on 2 October 1864 with sponsors Patrick Sheahan and (what looks like) Janeta Kennelly)
Janeta (baptised on 24 September 1865 with sponsors John Shine and Mary Hanrahan)
Johanna Hanrahan (baptised on 9 December 1869 with sponsors Callaghan (sic) Sheahan and Brigid Hanrahan)
Catherine Hanrahan (born on 1 January 1872, baptised on 3 January 1872 with sponsors were John Hanrahan and Ellen Shine)

Could Catherine be Katie, daughter of Jim above? And could the other children be additional children that we did not know about?

In Ahavoher Cemetery in Moyvane is the grave of James J. Hanrahan of Kilbaha who died 30 June 1990 aged 81. Could this be the grave of two-year-old son James above from the 1911 census. James J. is buried with his wife, Ellen (née Shanahan) who died on 8 September 1992, also aged 81.

Ellen SHEAHAN was born in possibly about 1840. She died after 2 Apr 1911. Ellen married James (Jim) HANRAHAN.

They had the following children.

  M i John (John Jim) HANRAHAN was born in possibly about 10 Feb 1863.
  M ii
Patrick HANRAHAN was born on 3 Oct 1864 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.
  F iii
Catherine (Katie) HANRAHAN was born in possibly 1 Jan 1872 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died.
  M iv
Michael HANRAHAN was born in possibly 26 May 1874 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died.

In family notes outlining Michael's branch of the Hanrahan family tree, the word 'sapper' and 'Aust.' (presumably meaning Australia) appear after Michael's name. A search of World War I casualties on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website (www.cwgc.org) shows that a Michael Francis Hanrahan, a private in the Australian army, died on 11 April 1917 in northern France. However, no information as to his age or his parents' names and address is given so there is no evidence that Michael Francis Hanrahan is our Michael above.
  M v Denis (Denis Jim) HANRAHAN was born in possibly 12 Jun 1880. He died in 1939.
  F vi
Ellen (Ellie) HANRAHAN (caution: not verified) was born in possibly 19 Jun 1886 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Cornelius (Corney) HANRAHAN [Parents] was born in Kilbaha South, Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry. He died. Cornelius married 'UNKNOWN'.

Hanrahan researchers may be interested in a Cornelius Hanrahan listed in one of www.Ancestry.com's family trees, although it appears this Cornelius is not Cornelius above as the parents of the Cornelius on Ancestry.com are John Hanrahan and Nora Keane. The Ancestry tree tells us Cornelius married a Mary Culhane and had at least six children: Margaret Mary, John, Thomas, Nano, Kate and Ellen. There is information on Margaret Mary only: she was born in Lenamore, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry; she married Michael Hickie from Puleen, Co. Kerry in 1878; and she died in Co. Kerry in 1925. It appears the Cornelius on Ancestry died aged 74 in Lenamore on 27 January 1895, the informant on the death record being his son John of Lenamore.

Another Cornelius Hanrahan, who may or may not be connected to any of the above, became a priest and served in East Malvern, Melbourne, Australia. Cornelius, who died on 20 September 1945, was the eldest son of Denis (who predeceased Fr. Cornelius) and Mary Hanrahan from Aughrim, Moyvane.

'UNKNOWN' died. 'UNKNOWN' married Cornelius (Corney) HANRAHAN.

Patrick (Pat) HANRAHAN [Parents] was born on 16 Mar 1896 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 18 Mar 1896 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 15 Apr 1969 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was buried in Ahavoher Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Patrick married Julia SHANAHAN on 28 Sep 1929 in Newcastle registration district, Co. Limerick.

Pat's baptismal sponsors were Michael Hanrahan and Mary Hanrahan. Pat was a cousin of Jim Hanrahan, the husband of Julia's sister Nell. The exact type of relationship is not certain but it appears they were second cousins.

Julia SHANAHAN [Parents] was born on 11 Nov 1902 in Dirreen, Athea, Co. Limerick. She died on 30 Aug 1968 in Limerick. She was buried in Ahavoher Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Julia married Patrick (Pat) HANRAHAN on 28 Sep 1929 in Newcastle registration district, Co. Limerick.

Julia may also have been known as Breda.

Julia lived in New York for a time before returning to Ireland where she married and raised a family in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.
