126. Jeremiah (Jerry) O'SULLIVAN (Denis O'SULLIVAN , Julia DOODY , Johanna ) was born on 7 Feb 1925 in Kilquane, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He died on 26 Dec 1988 in probably Sydney, Australia. He was buried in Rookwood Cemetery, Homebush, Sydney.

Prior to emigrating to Australia Jerry had a successful boxing career in Britain, knocking out opponents in the first round in 21 consecutive fights and earning himself the nickname "One Round Sully". Among his sparring partners were champions Freddie Mills and Dick Turpin. He later decided to join his two brothers, Jim and Eugene, cutting cane on the farm of their uncle Eugene (O'Sullivan) in Queensland, Australia.

Jerry eventually moved to Sydney where he established a successful painting and decorating business, employing many young Irish men who had come to Australia looking for work in the 1950s. He was very well known within the Irish community in Sydney and organised charity fundraisers for Sydney's homeless men. Jim and Eugene, Jerry's brothers, had also moved to Sydney where they too ran a thriving painting business.

Jerry was apparently related to a Teresa Mangan (née O'Sullivan) from Co. Cork who lived in Sydney but I have not managed to figure out exactly how they were connected. Teresa's family and Jerry's appear to have been close, and Jerry was godfather to one of Teresa's grandchildren. Of course it could be that the families were just good friends, but if any member of Jerry's family could help me establish the blood relationship, if any, I would be most grateful if you could contact me. Please email Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com. For your information Teresa was born Catherine O'Sullivan/Sullivan in 1901 in Knocknagappul, Clonakilty, Co. Cork. She emigrated to Canada as a young woman and lived there for a couple of years before moving to Australia. She married Patrick Mangan from Co. Kerry in Sydney 1934 and she died in Sydney in 1986.
