113. Michael (Mick) J. HANRAHAN (Margaret CUNNINGHAM , Bryan CUNNINGHAM , Johanna ) was born on 19 Apr 1892 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 21 Apr 1892 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 11 Jun 1967 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was buried in Ahavoher Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Mick's baptismal sponsors were Michael Moran and Honora Moran.

Mick was also known as "Mickeen John Paddy" (because his father was John and his grandfather was Paddy). It is likely he inherited the family farm. Mick was well known in the area for his ability to cure ringworm, this knowledge apparently having been passed down to him by his father. When people would come to him with ringworm, he would apply to the skin a mixture made up mostly of unsalted butter, but nobody knows what he put into the butter to make the cure.

Michael married Bridget SHANAHAN, daughter of Richard SHANAHAN and Catherine (Katie) NOLAN, on 21 Feb 1928 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Bridget was born on 7 Apr 1895 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 9 Apr 1895 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died on 4 Feb 1949 in probably Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was buried in Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Bridget's baptismal sponsors were Martin Collins and Mary Collins.

Bridget was only about 51 years of age when she died.

128. Mary Ann KEARNEY (Patrick (Pat) KEARNEY , Ellen CUNNINGHAM , Johanna ) was born on 7 Aug 1881 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died before 17 Jul 1954.

Mary married William (Bill) SHINE, son of Cornelius (Con) SHINE and Catherine (Kate) REIDY, on 28 Jan 1913 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. William was born on 22 Jun 1873 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 17 Jul 1954 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Bill lived in Kilbaha.

We have information on Bill's family from Dan Keane's account of tradespeople in Moyvane in the book The Boro' and the Cross (2000). Dan tells us that Bill was a descendant of a Mr. Shine who came to Kilbaha, Newtownsandes from Co. Cork (perhaps Cobh) with his brother and sister. The siblings lived for a time on a farm in Kilbaha, which eventually passed down to Bill [this would be Bill above]. Bill's son, Connie Bill, inherited the farm and after his death it became the property of Patrick Kearney of Kilbaha (a relative of Bill's wife, Mary Kearney, perhaps?).

It appears Bill's ancestor's brother eventually returned to Cork while Bill's ancestor met a local woman, whose surname was Mulvihill. As Dan Keane tells us "I don’t know anything of his romances or if the girl had any influence on him, but he was in a coach with his brother on their way to Cobh, he leaped from the coach and came back to work as a cooper". Dan does not mention of what became of Bill's ancestor's sister but her brother who stayed in Kilbaha married Miss Mulvihill and he moved to her farm.

I was presuming that it was Bill's grandfather Daniel Shine who came from Cork as he married a Mary Mulvihill, but Dan Keane tells the name of the Shine sibling from Cork who stayed on in Kilbaha was Con (Cornelius): "...it was from this farm [i.e. the siblings' Kilbaha farm] that Con Shine (grandfather to the present Connie and Jack on the Glin Road) came and married into the farm where Connie now resides, marrying a girl by the name of Mulvihill who owned the farm". Perhaps it was Bill's great-grandfather, whose first name was probably Cornelius, who came from Cork. Any help in clarifying which of Bill's ancestors was from Cork would be much appreciated. Please email Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com.

According to Dan Keane, the Kilbaha branch of the Shine family is the only one to be known as the Coopers, even though the Dirreen and Athea (both Co. Limerick) Shines also share the same Cork ancestor. We are also told that a "Dan Shine (brother to Molly Shine, the teacher) was also a cooper. His residence and workshop was where Bobby Stack and family now live." However, we do not know if Dan was a Kilbaha or Dirreen/Athea Shine.

The Shines were also involved in the making of traps (for use with ponies) and trap wheels. "Con Shine, grandfather of Bridie Shine (née Shine), Glin Road, worked at the trade for years. His sons Con and Dan carried on the trade."

However, neither Bill above nor his father, Con, was a cooper or trap maker (they were farmers), although there were Shine families in Newtownsandes village and the townland of Gortdromasillihy who were coopers. These were, no doubt, connected to Bill's family.

They had the following children.

  417 F i
Catherine (Kitty) Mary SHINE was born on 12 Dec 1913 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died in 1964 in Glin, Co. Limerick. She was buried in Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Connie died unexpectedly of a heart attack aged 53.
       
Cornelius married Isobel MCCROSSAN. Isobel was born about 1905. She died on 21 Aug 1970 in Drumquin, Omagh, Co. Tyrone. She was buried in Ahavoher Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Isobel was from Drumquin, Omagh, Co. Tyrone. She and Connie had no children.

An Annie B. McCrossan married a Cornelius Shine in Co. Limerick in 1951. Could this relate to the marriage of Isobel above? Although the bride's first name is different, the McCrossan/Cornelius Shine combination could be said to be unusual in Co. Limerick.
