The Annual Fancy Dress Halloween Party in aid of Cystic Fibrosis was an outstanding success. Hundreds arrived at the Wallis Arms Hotel on Friday, 30th Oct. 2009 in totally stunning costumes. The range and variety of these most colourful fancy dress outfits is getting better and better by the year. The very enjoyable auction realised over €3,000.00 alone not to mention the substantial amount collected at admission to the hugely popular event. Áine Collins and Paul Cassidy together with their very dedicated supporters much take a bow on organising such a phenomenally successful event for this year’s chosen cause – Cystic Fibrosis. Catherine Pomeroy-Murphy and Cllr. Noel Buckley conducted the auction wish such professionalism! Here we share a selection of pictures from the truly wonderful night of nights at the Wallis Arms where Billy and Ellen Sheahan of the Wallis Arms appeared in two of the most colourful costumes. What a superb spirit on a special night. Brendan Murphy and I reported “live” for LTV2 Millstreet while Connie and Tom of “The Celt” provided excellent musical harmony.

Daniel Finn (1818-1887) Laborer and Immigrant to USA in 1873 (b. December 1818, Millstreet and Cullen, Cork, County Cork, Munster Province, Ireland – d. October 14, 1887, 276 1st Street, Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, 07302-2713, USA)
Daniel was born in Millstreet, Cork, Ireland to Mary and Patrick Finn (c1790-?).
He married Catherine Creedon (1834-1914) around 1855-1860.
Together they had the following children: Mary A. Finn (1860-1885) who was born in Ireland or Wales; Nora M. Finn (1866-1898) who was born in Wales and married John Joseph Burke I (1868-1939); and Catherine (Kate) Elizabeth Finn (1873-1918) who was born in Cardiff in Wales. There were two more children that died at birth and they are probably buried in Wales or Ireland.
Around 1860 Daniel and Catherine moved from Ireland to Cardiff, Wales. In 1873 the family moved from Wales to the United States and lived in Jersey City, New Jersey.
