The following request from Rosaleen Underwood:
The Shannon-Kelleher group are descended from Catherine Kelleher (believed to have been born ca1818, daughter of Patrick Kelleher and Mary Kane or Keane), and her first husband, Martin Shannon of Dublin. She is thought to have come from the Ballydesmond / Boherbue / Millstreet area, and the family may have originally come from Kerry.
The 12 Australians comprising the Shannon-Kelleher group will be in Millstreet on Friday, 24th August and are hosting a get-together for any Kellehers in the area in the hope that they will meet some relations or anyone who can tell them more about the Kellehers. This will be in the Wallis Arms in Millstreet at 10.30am.
