McCarthy/Foley/Cronin: Gortnacreha/Mullaghroe/Eagloune/Knocknaloman

Hello,
We hope to connect with the McCarthy Family that lived in Gortnacreaha & Mullaghroe & Eagloune (wives’ maiden names: Foley & Cronin).
We have the marriage of Daniel McCarthy & his bride Mary McCarthy (her maiden name) in 1860.
Daniel’s parents lived in Mullaghroe: Daniel McCarthy & Honora Foley.
Mary’s parents lived in Gortnacreha: Florence McCarthy & Catherine Cronin. The new couple went on to have eleven children:

  • Daniel born 1861 in Gortnacreha
  • Honora b. 1863 in Gortnacreha
  • Catherine b. 1865 in Cullen
  • Florence (male) b. 1867 in Cullen
  • Mary b. 1869 in Eagloune
  • Michael b. 1871 in Eagloune
  • Timothy b. 1872 in Eagloune
  • Jeremiah b. 1874 in Eagloune
  • John b. 1877 in Eagloune
  • Julia b. 1879 in Eagloune
  • Denis b. 1881 in Eagloune

We know they lived there until at least 1879 and that sometime between 1879 and 1890 the parents (Dan and Mary) moved down to Knocknaloman. Their son Daniel married and moved from Eagloune to Rathduane when he married shopkeeper Mary Morgan of Rathduane (daughter of John Morgan and Helena McCarthy). We do not yet know what happened to the other siblings (marriages, etc.).

If you are part of that McCarthy/McCarthy family of 11 children we would enjoy hearing from you
