Hudson Photos

HUDSON Moloney


Pictured here are Fr. Denis Moloney with his sister Johanna (Hannah) and their father, John. John was married to Margaret Hudson of Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (now called Moyvane), Co. Kerry.

John and Margaret lived in Islandanny, Duagh, Co. Kerry and had nine children. Denis, born in 1881, was the fourth child. He entered the priesthood and ministered in New Brighton, Pennsylvania. Hannah, 10 years younger than Denis, died of tuberculosis aged just 16, which cannot have been too long after this photo was taken. Four of Denis and Hannah’s siblings - Edmund, Nora, Margaret and Tom - are also thought to have died young. Of their three remaining siblings, John married Julia Broderick and lived in Ballymacjordan, Duagh; Mary Ann married Jerry Kennelly and lived in Gortdromagowna, Knockanure, Co. Kerry; and Jim married Hannah Fitzgerald and lived in Islandanny.

Denis and Hannah’s mother, Margaret, died in 1910, before this photo would have been taken. Their father, John (pictured), died in Islandanny in 1936 aged 86.
