Monahan family


Pictured here are Martin Monahan, his wife, Kitty, and three of their children.

Martin was born in 1898 in Duncannon, Co. Wexford where his father worked initially as a police constable and later as a shopkeeper and publican. Martin’s parents were Patrick Monahan, originally from east Co. Galway, and Sarah Carew who was born in Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary.

Martin emigrated to the United States in 1922, settling in New York where he worked as a chauffeur and later as a maintenance supervisor in the offices of a bank. He and Kitty (née Harnett) were married in the Bronx, New York in 1927. Kitty was from Dromtrasna, Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. They had at least three children.

Kitty died when she was only in her forties or fifties. Some years later, in Liverpool, Martin married Kathleen Kennedy (née Barron), originally from Co. Wexford. Martin died in New York but we do not know when.
