Baptismal sponsors were Bernard (Bryan) Cunningham and Ann Cunningham.

I am told Paddy was known as Paddy Jerry (presumably because his paternal grandfather was Jeremiah and there was more than one Paddy Mulvihill in the area whose father's name was John - usually it was the father's name that was added as a suffix to distinguish people of the same name, or both the father's and paternal grandfather's name, e.g. Paddy John Jerry). Apparently Paddy's children and grandchildren were known as the Paddy Jerrys.

The Cancellation Books tell us Paddy took over the family farm in 1899.

Patrick married Ellen (Ellie) MULVIHILL, daughter of Denis MULVIHILL and Catherine HANRAHAN, on 26 Dec 1898 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Ellen was born on 3 Feb 1871 in Aughrim, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 4 Feb 1871 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died on 13 Feb 1938 in Aughrim, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Baptismal sponsors were John Mulvihill and Hanora Hanrahan.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage were Jeremiah Mulvihill and Margaret Mulvihill.

Paddy and Ellie shared a surname and both were born in Aughrim. It is likely they were related but I have not managed to prove a connection between their two families.

71. Margaret MULVIHILL (Brigid (Biddy) CUNNINGHAM , Johanna ) was born on 8 May 1873 in Aughrim, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 8 May 1873 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died on 25 Jan 1966 in Aughrim, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was buried in Knockanure Cemetery, Co. Kerry.

Baptismal sponsors were Cornelius Hanrahan and Catherine Hanrahan.

It is possible that Margaret's aunt Mary Cunningham who, it is believed, was married to a Mr. Moore from Aughrim, may have been the wife of an uncle of Margaret's husband, Paddy Moore. Living with Margaret and Paddy in Aughrim at the time of the 1911 census was Mary Moore, an 81-year-old widow who is listed as Paddy's aunt. It is possible that she may have been both Margaret's aunt (who would have been a similar age in 1911) and the wife of one of Paddy's uncles.

Margaret married Patrick (Paddy) MOORE, son of John MOORE and Honora 'UNKNOWN', on 20 Jul 1901 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Patrick was born about 1879 in probably Aughrim, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died in possibly 31 Jan 1961.
