My maternal grandparents — Dennis Anthony Lucey and Nora O’Connell — were born in County Cork. Dennis’ birth may be August 1, 1869 at Horsemount, Kilcarney in Millstreet while Nora’s birth is approximately 1871 in Macroom. Dennis’ parents may be John Lucey and Hannah Toomey. I will be coming to Cork this June and it would be a pleasure to discover family connections, so any suggestions, clues or leads in this search will be greatly appreciated.
Dennis and Nora met in San Francisco, California and married in approximately 1900.

“On January 23 (1887), an enthusiastic demonstration under the auspices of the National League was held at Moll Carthy’s Bridge, situated eight miles from the town of Kanturk. There was an enormous assemblage, estimated at 6,000 persons. There were two brass bands and several fife and dram bands in attendance, accompanied by contingents from all the surrounding branches of the League, including Banteer, Dromagh, Dromtarriff, Millstreet, Ballyvourney, Carrigenema, Newmarket, Ballyclough, Lyre, Kilcorney, and Nadd. A large force of police under the Millstreet district inspector was present. A Government note-taker was also present and took notes of the speeches.” – from the NZ Tablet
