Kennelly/ Conners

I really do not know much about my Kennelly's. My g. g. grandfather John W. Kennelly was b. 2 Aug 1835 in Ireland. His death certificate says his father was Martin Kennelly b. Ireland and his mother was Mary Windle also b. in Ireland. He m. Johanna Conners before 1857 in Ireland. Could be Connors. Johanna was b. in Ireland abt 1839. Her death certificate says her father was John Conners and her mother was Ellen, both b. Ireland. They had two children b. in Ireland that survived the journey to the US. Micheal b. Sept. 1857 and Mary b. 1860. Family stories say two children died on the trip over. Daughter Ellen b. in 1864 and I'm not sure which country she was b. in.

They supposedly came to this country abt 1862-64 but I can find no record of them until the early 1870's in Rochester NY. Supposedly John was naturalized but there were no naturalization records for him in Rochester.
Supposedly my g grandmother Frances Bridgete was b. 1868 in Erie Pa. where I live but I can find no record of the family here either.

Frances m. Thomas Geraghty in Rochester. Supposedly one family was from Limerick, and the other from Tipperary but no one knows for sure.

If you have any knowledege of this family I would be grateful for any information you are willing to share!
,

my g-grandfathers Joe Kennelly's death cert says his father, John was
born in Pittsburgh. I can't be certain of its accuracy there, but John's
wife, Catherine Sullivan is listed as being born in Ireland.
My g-grandfather was Joseph, born in Pitt., in 1891. He may be the link my
grandfather spoke about to the mayor Martin H Kennelly of Chicago.
All that my grandfather remembered was that as a young child he had an uncle
who was an Attorney in Chicago who would visit them and before leaving buy them
a carload full of groceries

Kennelly Ballyduff
> I didn't find anything relative to my research on your site, but that may
be because I'm so ignorant of my forebears. I know they were from the
district of Ballyduff, registrar's district of Listowel, according to my
grandfather James Joseph Kennelly's birth certificate (10/19/1883). I keep
hoping that someone will see my queries and recognise info that fits with
something they know.

My son Tom Roche and family leave in a couple of weeks for Ireland to seek
roots. His grandmother, Margaret Agnes Kelly Roche, was born in Listowel in
Aug,
1879, to Tom Kelly and Mary (?) Kennelly. Her siblings included Mary Kelly
Behan, Nora Kelly Hannon, Catherine Kelly Doyle (who remained in Listowel)
Paddy Kelly,(who inherited the Kelly farm) and several others.

Tom and family will be visiting offspring of the Kellys and the Doyles. It is
difficult to follow your family tree, without some dates or other clues.

Please let me know if you can find a Mary Kennelly among the siblings of
Pat or Jerry Kennelly.

Mary Anna Roche

I have only just started tracing my family tree so I don't have a great deal
of information as yet but here is what I have found out so far.
Sarah Maloney sailed from County Clare in 1883 at the age of 20 on the
sailing ship 'Assaye' with her mother Sarah aged 55 and brother Michael aged
25. In 1881 an Ellen Maloney aged 21 sailed for Australia on the
'Blairgowie' also in 1881 another Ellen Maloney aged 25 sailed for Australia
on the 'Glamis'. Also on board was James Maloney aged 19 and Thomas Maloney
aged 18. Sarah married Alfred Henry Peel on the 22.9.1886 at St. Mary's
Cathedral Sydney. A Michael and Ellen Maloney signed the marriage
certificate as witnesses. Sarah and Alfred had 7 children (5 boys & 2 girls)
and my father also Alfred was born on the 6.6.1889. Sarah died on the
11.8.1937 aged 74 and Alfred died in September 1954 aged 89. They are buried
together in the catholic cemetery Botany Sydney in row 9 grave no. 481.
Michael Maloney married a Johanna McNamara and had 6 children all died
young, the last a daughter Johanna who was the last survivor of the family,
died on 9.5.1924. Michael & children died from Myelocythaemia. She is buried
in the Curch of England cemetery Woronora N.S.W. I have nothing at all
regarding Sarah's father, he must have died in Ireland as he is not on any
ships passenger lists. Also nothing about Sarah's grandparents. Do you have
any information that would help me?
Regards Allan Peel


Thanks for your note.
The point of my letter of 22/2/2001 was as follows:-
1. To ascertain whether you had any information to link my greatgrandfather with Bridget Mulvihill shown on the Kennelly families list.The date of c1840 would seem to be about right as grandfather John was born about 1847 in Newtownsandes. We had already established that the only other John to have married a Bridget ie Bridget Kirby was not related because they did not have a son John,according to the information supplied by the P.P. at Moyvane in 1990.
2. To see what relevance the name Folan/Forin/Foran had to our family. And whether Bridget Morrissey's parents Thomas Kennelly and Hannah Forin could be connected to grandfather from the records obtainable in Newtownsandes.

My full name is Christopher Charles Kennelly,the name Christopher comes from my maternal grandfather Christopher L'Estrange,born in Mulligar Westmeath. Charles comes from my uncle Charles Henry Kennelly killed in France in 1918.


I don't know if Jerry snr.worked in Cork. I know he came to Skibbereen around 1907/8. The only person I know of Sr. Baptist who resides in Cork. If you come this way again be sure to let yourself known to me.


Tom Kennelly of Cobourg was my ancestor. I'm curious for details on this woman.
My Kennelly's were from Limerick. Wonder if we're related.

I am still trying to figure out at what point the Hanrahan's
became cousins to my Flahavan's.
You asked about the Lawlor's---I know very little about how they are
connected to my Flahavan/Flavin family. In Delaware Ohio in the middle
1850's they were attending baptisims, marriages and sponsers to various
Flavin family. Fanny Lawlor apparently was married to a John O'Naile
(O'Neil) A Mary Lawlor was married to John Moran, whose daughter Johanna
Moran married Patrick Flahavan/Flavin in Delaware Ohio in 1858. All born
Ireland.
Seems William Hanrahan of Newtownsandes had a son John. He in turn had
another son John Patrick. John Patrick Hanrahan was listed as cousin to my
great grand uncle Timothy Flavin/Flahavan. I can only assume that somewhere,
there was a Flahavan/Flavin and Hanrahan marriage. What a confusing mess I
have here.
If you hear of any Hanrahan Flavin connections, please let me know.


what I am looking for is: John and Mary
nee Collins had Denis Flahavan born Feb 11, 1821. Other probable children of
John and Mary are: John, James, Johanna, Bridget, Patrick, Mary. All born
1820 to 1840.
Denis Flahavan/Flavin married Catherine Costelloe. That would have been
sometime around 1850 to 1853. Now there is the possibility a first marriage
was to Mary Mahoney in 1846. I would like to see if buried there is one Mary
Mahoney/Maloney Flahavan/Flavin who would have died between 1846 and 1852.
Children born to Denis Flahavan in Ireland, Kerry would be John born about
1852 or 53 and Michael born 1852 to 1853. Maybe others prior to these two, I
don't know. The rest of the children (12 more) were born in Ohio , So I
already know about them



I have a couple of copies of letters that were written from another Flavin
researcher's great great grandmother back in 1853. She (Anne Scanlon) was
writting to her daughter Ellen Scanlon Shanahan, who was in America , Ohio.
The area she wrote from was Ahanagran. Anyway, she mentions her son in laws,
Patrick Flavin/Flahavan and James Flahavan. Also interesting is the mention
of a Margaret Kennelly, Richard Scanlon's wife. Darby Enright is also
mentioned. As is John Mahoney, who took Anne Scanlon's grandson, Robert
Flahavan/Flavin to America, and both of them disappeared, this being in 1854.
These folks are somehow intertwined with my Flavin family, we believe. The
researcher and I have yet to figure out the relationship. I tell you about
this, because I thought it interesting that the Kennelly name was mentioned.
No mention of my Costelloe or Hanrahan family though.


Hello Again Jer,
I ask because on my
Hanrahan (John Hanrahan, son of William Hanrahan) who died in Ohio in 1875,
it says born in "Newtownsandes, County Kerry".


Cork Family; My great uncles Jeremiah and John were the first and third bishops of
Harrisburg, PA. Their father was the founder of a Catholic college in (I
believe) Philadephia where the family lived until Jeremiah's appointment as
bishop of the "new diocese", There is info on the Web about the bishops. I
have photos of them and some belongings. The Shanahan family of my
ancestors came to the US.from Cork in about 1825, according to me records.
The ancestor from Ireland was named Sylvester Shanahan married to an Ann
Hand. Their child, John married a Margaret Donavan. The latter were
parents of the two bishops.

 

 

I am searching for the ancestry/family of Timothy Kennelly; born in 1797 possibly in Ballylongford, Kerry Co., Ireland; married Catherine O'Connor abt 1830+; removed to Bulloch County, GA USA abt 1835 until 1857 and migrated to Winnesheik CO, IA where he died. I would be happy to share any info with you on these lines. Thanks, Judy.

 CASEY DUAGH


Knockalougha School built 1879. Teacher Thomas Casey. On 14th of June
1898 Thomas was fined £1 for neglect of timetable. James Dower was
monitor c 1900, questions were asked because Dower was a relation of a
teacher, no preference to teachers relations was allowed.
A Catherine Lyons was informed that Commissioners do not interfere in the
private affairs of teachers.



I am able to trace some relatives to Ireland through a cousin, Mrs. Jim Lyons (Rita Casey) Lyons. Mary Agnes Casey (daughter of Dennis G.,1848?-1909, Kim's great-great grandfather) and Rita Lyons are related in the following way; the grandfather of Rita (Casey) Lyons, John Casey was the cousin of Dennis G. Casey (1848?-1909, Mary Agnes' father). John Casey's son, Tom Casey (Rita's father) taught 35 years in Duagh, Ireland. As for Tom Casey's other children, two were priests, and two were nuns; the others died before completing their education. Please see below.

From a 1935 letter from Rita (Casey) Lyons to Mary Agnes Casey:

My dear Agnes: ....we left my Father's (R.I.P.) home at Knockalougher just four years ago and bought this farm ["___eamfort" [Illegible], . Cork, I.F.S]. We celebrated my sister's Silver Jubilee, in Queenstown Mercy Convent, last Sunday week. (16th) -Sister Angela is her name-she was Josephine Casey in the world. My brother; Father James Casey, is on a visit with us as present. He belongs to the English Mission but he had been very ill and he is on sick leave for a long time...Information on the back of a photo dated 1929 mentions other family members: Celia Dower (a cousin, teaches in England), myself, Jim with Baby, Aunt Annie, Mundy Stack (... will be ordained in June), and Madge Dower, ...Angela, Kathleen, and Desmond.

Rita and Jim Lyons had several children and in 1935 they were the following ages. Desmond, 14 (August) is their eldest son; Kathleen, 13 (November); Angela, 12 (October), and James Joseph, 7 (March). I do not know if they are still living.


Rita's last known address (in 1938):
Dromcollegher


Written on back: Left to right, back row: Celia Dower (a cousin, teaches in England) myself, Jim, with

Baby , Aunt-Annie, Mundy Stack [illegible] (a Maywoodh [illegible] student will be ordained in June) + Madge Dower. Front row:-Angela, Kathleen + Desmond. Taken August '29. [1929]

 


DANAHER

 

 

 

http://mauricedanaher.webs.com/ourstory.htm

 

ORIGINS OF THE DANAHER NAME

 

 

The Irish surname name Danaher is believed to be an Anglicized version of

the Gaelic surname O’Danachair or O’Duinneachair and derives from the

Gaelic personal name Duineachar which signifies ‘descended of Duineachar’.

This personal name means a ‘loving man’, the first element of his name being

derived from the old Irish ‘duine’ meaning ‘person’. Another explanation is

that the surname derives from the ancient pre 10th century Gaelic

"duineachaidh", meaning pure, but it has to be said that this is not

accepted by many scholars.

 

 

 

Danaher belongs to Co. Limerick: it originated in north-west Tipperary,

where the chief was lord of a territory near Nenagh until dispossessed

following the Anglo-Norman invasion.

 

 

 

Many, perhaps the majority of Irish surnames, originated as a nickname for

the first chief of the clan, effectively the first name holder. Some of

these nicknames were "robust" to the point of physical directness, and

others in the tradition of nicknames may well mean the reverse of the

translation! In this case we also have confusion with the English surname

Denny.

 

 

 

 

 

LIMERICK HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

 

 

Much of County Limerick was part of the ancient Kingdom of Thomond, while

parts of the west of the County was part of the Kingdom of Desmond. In the

mid 9th Century the Vikings took control of Limerick City and retained it

until the 11th Century when they were defeated by the O’Brien chieftan Brian

Boru. Because the Norse did not use surnames there is little evidence of

the Viking heritage among the family names in the area.

 

 

From that time it was the seat of the O’Briens, rulers of Thomond until the

English took control of Limerick in 1174. Following the Norman invasion the

county was granted to the DeBourgs, ancestors of the Burkes, the Fitzwalters

and the Fitzgeralds, The Norman influence is still evident among the names

which are still common in the county, Fitzgerald, Fitzgibbon, deLacey,

deCoursey, Woulfe and Wall.

 

 

 

CROMWELL

 

In 1649 Charles 1st was executed in London and Cromwell came to power. A

brilliant and brutal general he came to Ireland that year and quickly

exercised control. In 1641 the English Parliament had passed ‘the

Adventurers Act’ a money raising venture that allowed land to be confiscated

from disloyal Irish Landlords and sold to investors. The Cromwellian

campaign in Ireland cost £3.5m. To make this back he had similar legislation

passed in 1652. Sir William Petty carried out a government survey to

establish the land available. In all, 11m out of a total of 20m acres was

confiscated and reassigned, mainly in Dublin, Kildare, Carlow, Cork, Armagh,

Down, Antrim, Laois, Offaly, Meath, Westmeath, Tipperary, Waterford and

Limerick. This was a massive shift in land ownership. The benefiting

‘adventurers’ were mainly London merchants or soldiers in Cromwell’s army.

Many became absentee Landlords for whom the newly acquired estates became

sources of profit.

 

 

 

FAMINE

 

The county was badly affected by a local famine in 1820 caused by potato

blight and by the great famine in 1845-47. According to Samuel Lewis (1837)

the population, in 1821, was 218,432; and in 1831, 248,201. Almost 17% of

the County’s population emigrated between 1851 and 1855. Almost 30,000

people died between 1847 and 1850. The population was 330,000 in 1841

falling by 21% in 1851 and a further 21% to 152,583 in 1871. By 1891 it had

stabilized at 160,000 and is currently 122,000.

 

 

 

 

 

THE “ LEGEND” OF THE DANAHER’S ARRIVAL IN WEST LIMERICK

 

In the middle of the 17th century, two brothers named Maurice and Phil

Danaher came to the parish of Rathronan, nowadays called Athea. Tradition

tells us that they came from north Tipperary “gan brog gan stocai”, fleeing

from Brodel’s persecution-a Cromwellian Officer who was rounding up hundreds

of young people to be dispatched to the West Indies as “indentured labour”

i.e. as slaves. In their flight they delayed at Rathronan where they

ultimately got a tenancy of two holdings from the Earl of Devon. Maurice

Danaher was allowed to settle at Mothar Glas at the eastern side of

Glenagower. Philip Danaher settled at Cnocatrasna-Choile. The land here had

been broken-in and was one of the two places in the parish, which was

designated as “gniomh” or “plough land”.

 

 

After Maurice Danaher’s death the tenancy of the farm at Mothar Glas passed

on to his son Daniel. Among the latter’s family was a son named Daniel. He

went to Spain where he was studying at Salamanca. He spent some years in

Spain in the Spanish army. It is not known when Daniel went to Spain, but he

returned to Ireland in 1731. He brought with him from Spain several books

and a wife. Soon after coming to Ireland he settled in Castlemahon in the

town land of Lios an Uisce. He got a tenancy of a farm from the Landlord

Viscount Southwell when he found that Danaher could teach a hedge-school

quickly started up and soon the Landlord’s sons gained entry to University.

Daniel Danaher was followed in Lios an Uisce by his son Patrick who carried

on a hedge-school there as did Patrick’s son John and one of this John

Danaher’s sons named Daniel who did not occupy the Tenancy of the farm.

 

 

 

GLENAGOWER.

 

I have been able to trace my own Danaher family line back as far as Philip

Danaher who was born around 1786 in Glenagower and died on 7th August 1884.

He lived to be 98 years old. He was married to Bridget Sheehy, born 1795 and

died 22nd February 1864 aged 69 years, and they had at least 11 children as

set out in 'My Descendent Chart' for Philip Danaher & Bridget Sheehy :

MONEMOHILL (‘MONEYMOHILL’)

 

 

 

The earliest mention of the townland that I have found is in Begley’s

“History of Limerick Diocese Part 2 - relating to the 1584 Survey of

Forfeited lands ‘when Ullig Wall held Dunmoylan including -----------

Monemoell with castle’.

 

 

The Civil Survey was a record of land ownership in Ireland in 1640. Its

purpose was to facilitate the transfer of forfeited property to adventurers,

members of the Cromwellian army, and government. It has land descriptions as

well as the names of proprietors and their religion.

 

 

According to this survey the lands referred to as Monemohill were bounded on

the north by Finnoe, on the west by Clounlehard, on the east by Duncaha and

on the south by Glenagower. The proprietor was Richard Stephenson an ‘Irish

Papist’. The area owned by Stephenson was given as ‘300 ploughlands’, about

3,900 acres, and the total value was given as £40. There were no Danaher's

listed for this townland.

 

 

GRIFFITHS VALUATION

 

 

By the time of Griffith’s Valuation in 1852 John Danaher, my

great-grandfather, held 197 acres at Mone(y)mohill, the largest holding in a

townland which totalled 624 acres. The owners of the three largest holding

from 1833 had disappeared !. The landlord was Col. Richard S Bateson,

presumably a relative or brother of Thomas Bateson ( Sir Thomas Bateson had

no sons, only two daughters ). (Richard S Bateson held 1,394 acres in Co

Limerick valued at £1,123. Richard S Bateson was a career army man,

Lieutenant Colonel and Honorary Colonel 1st Life Guards with an address at

Knightsbridge Barracks, London. He was married twice, and seems to have had

a distinguished career in the British Army. )

 

 

 

John Danaher was married to Margaret Cummane and they had a large number of

children as set out in the 'My Descendent Chart' for John Danaher &

Margaret Cummane which can be viewed by clicking on the attached link ;

 

 

 

 

 

(When you open the PDF file you may have to enlarge or reduce the image to

view)

 

 

 

Notes on these family members ;

 

i) Bridget Danaher married John ‘Boss’ Danaher, aged 38, on 21/11/1876 at

Kilcolman parish church. The witnesses were James Danaher and Catherine

Purtill. John Danaher was married previously to May Woulfe who had died.

 

ii) Philip Danaher married a local girl Maria O’Sullivan’ from Tenakilla,

Ballyhahill. For a time they ran a pub in Shanagolden before emigrating to

Australia ( Queensland ) circa 1881/2 where they have numerous descendants

some of whom have come to Ireland in recent years to find their roots.

 

iii) Johanna married John Hastings from Moyreen and had a large family.

 

iv) Margaret married James Cleary from Templeathea East. According to Phil

Cregan he owned 400 acres and had 10 women coming in every day to milk !.

 

vi) Patrick ‘Pat’ married Nano Dillon and acquired the Danaher farm at

Woodcliffe. They had at least 7 children including Dan, Matthew, John,

Catherine, Josephine, Hannah and Mary.

 

vii) Daniel married Margaret O’Callaghan from Feenagh but they had no

family. They raised a niece of Margeret’s, Nora O’Callaghan who later moved

to Dublin and married an O’Carroll man who had a pub in North Dublin and

they lived in the Malahide area. They had one retarded daughter. As Dan had

no descendants he eventually left the Monemohill Farm to his nephew Dan

Danaher from Woodcliffe.

 

viii) John became a Medical Doctor and practiced in London until his

untimely death from rheumatic fever at the age of 34 on 8th August 1900 at

home in Monemohill. My mother told me a story about her mother attending to

her sick brother and hearing the ‘banshee’ crying on the night he died !.

See attached appendix relating to his funeral attendance.

 

ix) Catherine - no information on her - did she become Mother Gertrude in

Kilrush.

 

x) Nora - born in 1870 married Thomas Lane sometime after the 1901 census.

He was 15 years older than her. They had 5 children including my mother.

 

 

 

 

 

GRIFFITHS VALUATION 1852

 

The table below shows the number of Danaher households in each county in the

THE DANAHER’S

 

West Limerick and North Kerry Family

 

With far flung genealogical line

 

 

A brief account of the history of this re-markable family may be of interest

to many who have doubtless wondered at the prevalence of the name in North

Kerry and West Limerick, and may have some knowledge of it's very many

intersections. We have it from tradition that the first of the Danaher’s to

settle in West Limerick were two brothers, Phil and Maurice, who fled from

the borders of Cork and Waterford at the time of "Brodels Persecution" as it

was called, when he (Brodel) volunteered to procure thousands of slaves for

the English Govt. to be sent to work on sugar plantations of the Bermudas.

Those two boys ran away barefooted, it seems, from their home, and never

stopped until they reached Rathronan, better known today as Athea in County

Limerick. They settled, Phil at Parkmount and Maurice at Glenagower, and

both of these places are consequently the cradle of the name as far as West

Limerick and North Kerry are concerned.

 

 

At Parkmount, Phil married, and there were 5 sons of the union; Tim, John,

William, Maurice and Michael, besides possibly a daughter or two. (I'm only

the messenger!)

Tim (the son) got married to a Miss McCoy, and retained Parkmount, of which

place the family line is still in possession. Tim’s son Dan passed the place

down to his son of the same name, whose son John is the present possessor.

John son of Phil went to North Kerry, where his sons Dan and Tim held

possession after him. There is no male representative of either today, and

the family name is extinct at Kilarda, North Kerry. Tim, who married a Miss

Roche, was the father of one son and five daughters, amongst whom were three

who became the mothers of the Trants and O'Connells of Listowel and the

Danaher’s of Parkmount, Athea. William, Maurice and Michael the other sons

of Phil of Parkmount, spent their lives at Knocktane Valley, Templeathea,

where they are individually represented today by the Hanley’s, the Danaher’s

and the Tierney’s. One of Phil’s daughters became Mrs. Woulfe of Cratloe

West, and was mother of Phil Woulfe of that place, whose descendants are

still in possession. So much for the Parkmounts wing of the family.

 

 

Maurice Danaher of Glenagower, was father of a family there amongst who was

Phil and Mrs. Tierney, late of Templeglantine. Phil got married to the

sister-in-law of the late William Clery of Templeathea, and became the

father of Maurice, Phil, William, Tim, Pat, Dan and James, besides two or

three daughters one of whom was a Mrs. Quaid. The sons of Phil Danaher all

became settled in West Limerick, at Glenagower, Moyhaglass Ballyhahill,

Shanaglden and Loughill, where they are respectively represented by members

of their families.

 

 

The two original Danaher’s of Parkmount and Glenagower, by their action in

taking flight from Waterford, proved to the world that they at least would

never be "willing slaves" and today (1931) it would be next to impossible to

enumerate their descendants and connections (times thousands in 2001)

 

 

The Danaher’s of today (1931) have developed a marked amount of ability.

Maurice Danaher barrister-at-law, Miss Bridie Danaher, now Mrs. Lindsay, is

an MA and was lecturer in German at Galway University. Father Danaher of the

Oblate order is a Doctor of Philosophy. Dr James Danaher is an MD in

England. Daniel Danaher late of Parkmount was a University graduate when

such advanced learning was uncommon in Ireland, and his brother Timothy (my

grandfather) has written attractively in verse. There is hardly a Celtic

name on the roll that has not become joined to the name Danaher.

 

 

The families of West Limerick and North Kerry are only a small part of the

name, which is also found in Waterford, Cork, Clare and Galway, and in fact

outside of Ireland the sun does not shine on a settlement in which the name

Danaher is not to be found. They have taken their places with distinction in

the Legislatures of the world, and are to be found in the ranks of

professionals as well as being engaged in all legitimate pursuits in lands

of their adoption.

Needless to say DANAHER is a Hibernian name.

Australian descendents

Philip Danaher who was born 6th February 1853 son of John Danaher and

Margaret Cummane, Monemohill was married at age 23 to Marie O'Sullivan aged

21 who was from Tenekilla, Ballyhahill. Marie was daughter of Rodger

O'Sullivan a farmer from Tenekilla. The best man, Philip Purtill was a first

cousin of the groom, his mother being a sister of John Danaher. According to

the marriage certificate both bride and groom were described as farmers.

However I believe they operated a pub in the local village of Shanagolden

between 1875 and 1882 when they emigrated to Australia. Four of their

children were born before they emigrated and were baptised in Shanagolden

Church. They were Margaret b 1877, John b 3rd November 1877, Patrick b 31st

December 1878 and Roger b 29th April 1880. I could not find birth

registration for Margaret and she could have been a twin for John !

 

Eight more children were born in Australia including Philip, Daniel, Kit,

Ruby, James (x 2), Mary, and Peter 'Joe'.

 

According to Michael Danaher, Philips grandson ‘Soon after arriving in this

country, Philip farmed for 2 or 3 years, then within a few years joined the

railway, quickly advancing to Station Master. He controlled many stations

within a 60 mile radius of Brisbane. He was a tall man, over 6 feet,

retiring around 1918.’

 

 

 

I have received a very comprehensive list of descendants from Michael

Danaher which can be viewed from this PDF file :

 

Siobhan Bouma has also supplied me with some great pictures of her family

and newspaper cuttings of some notable Danahers.

The Irish folklorist Kevin Danaher, who has died aged 89, popularised the

study of folk life largely by lecturing, writing and making television

programmes. His 1967 Telifís Éireann series, The Hearth And Stool And All,

depicted the Irish countryside as it would have appeared at the turn of the

20th century.

The son of a schoolteacher, Danaher was born in Athea, Co Limerick, and

became interested in the traditions of Irish rural life while studying

archaeology at University College, Dublin. After graduating in 1937, he

studied folk life at the universities of Berlin and Leipzig, before his work

was cut short by the outbreak of the second world war.

 

 

Within months of joining the Irish folklore commission (IFC) in 1940, he was

recruited to the Irish army as an artillery instructor. By the time he

returned to the IFC in 1945, he had completed his MA thesis on Irish house

types, focusing on vernacular architecture.

 

 

He devoted the next four years to field work in Ireland - recording singers,

musicians and storytellers -and spent the 1952-53 academic year as a guest

lecturer in Irish language, literature and tradition at the University of

Uppsala, Sweden. He was to compile a substantial pictorial archive, much of

it consisting of his own fine photographs, as well as plans, diagrams and

drawings of traditional farmyard tools and household utensils.

 

 

One of the most impressive examples of applied folk-life devised by Danaher

is Bunratty folk park, close to Shannon airport, where buildings typical of

a dispersed rural settlement are complemented by a village settlement. A

centrepiece of the folk park is a Shannon farmhouse, transplanted to make

way for a runway extension and restored under Danaher's supervision.

 

 

He was also adviser to the trustees of Muckross House museum, and maintained

a friendly interest in the Ulster folk and transport museum at Cultra,

County Down. When the IFC was transferred to University College, Dublin, in

1971, he became a lecturer in the new department of Irish folklore. An

outstanding teacher, he gave unstintingly to ensure that his students

fulfilled their potential.

 

 

Danaher was a member of the Irish National Monuments Advisory Council, the

Folklore Council of Ireland, was active in the working group of the European

Ethnological Atlas and served as president of the Society for Folk Life

Studies. From 1965 to 1980, he was general editor of the department of

foreign affairs' Irish Life And Culture series, and, from 1960 to 1971,

edited the Irish Sword, the Military History Society of Ireland journal.

 

 

His publications include Ireland Long Ago (1962), The Year In Ireland

(1972), Ireland's Vernacular Architecture (1975), A Bibliography Of Irish

Ethnology And Folk Tradition (1978) and That's How It Was (1984).

 

 

Danaher retired in 1983, and is survived by his wife Anna and two sons.

Outrage at athea

Reference was made in the House of Commons in 1895 to an incident at Athea

involving John Danaher and a man called Shea whereby John Danaher was being

accused of attempted murder and was being referred to as a 'land grabber'. I

have not been able to establish if this is my grandfather or not !. See web

page :

Extract of email from Jamie Kelly, Athea relating to this John Danaher :

 

'In the meantime that I have some info on John Danaher you mentioned. He

owned a large farm of land in Gortnagross, Athea (it ran in a north - south

direction, crossing both the Athea - Abbeyfeale road and the Dromadda road).

That family were known as The "H" Danaher's. It is said that John H. Danaher

(prob. the man mentioned in your attachment) came to Dromadda in 1850 (just

so you know "Dromadda" was the old name given to the townlands of

Gortnagross, Coole, Clash, Keale, Cratloe and prob. Tooradoo...it was used

in the 1833 Tithe records). He married the widow of John Maurice Roche who

held a good portion of Gortnagross. John H. Danaher was evicted by the

national Bank for £1800 in 1894. He died in Newcastle Hospital in Feb 1907.

It is said that a John Danaher, Athea took over the lands in April 1894

after J.H. Danaher was evicted. I am not sure were they related but I do

know that there was a connection with your father. Had your father a brother

Jack? or another called Jim, who was a doctor in England?

 

 

 

I also got some info on John H. Danaher's house...according to Thady Hunt

(Coole West - a man I get alot of my info from) that it was "a gentleman's

residence." He remembers hearing that there were weights on the windows so

they could be easily opened & closed! I aslo found out that the farm was

divided by the Irish Land Commission in 1935 and small portions of the land

were given to small farmers in the area.

Funeral Of Dr Danaher

 

 

 

The funeral of this much regretted young man took place on Sunday last from

his brothers residence in Monemohill. Dr Danaher, who, since taking his

degrees had been in practice in London, some time ago contracted rheumatic

fever, from the effects of which he never rallied despite what medical care

and skill can do. The immense cortege that accompanied the remains to the

family burial ground at Ardagh testified to the love and respect in which Dr

Danaher was held by his neighbours.
