Note from Helen: I am not 100% sure that Hannah's parents were in fact James Harrington and Mary Kennelly of Kilbaha, but I am making the assumption that they were, based on the fact that their daughter Hannah was born around the same time as John Shanahan's wife, Hannah Harrington, i.e., around 1900, and the fact that it seems that James and Mary's daughter was the only Hannah Harrington of approximately 10 years of age living in the Newtownsandes area at the time of the 1911 census.
