We are most grateful to Seáno Murphy of Knocknagree and formerly of Mill Lane, Millstreet for sharing a very important memory and two historic images relevant to the recent Centenary Commemoration of the death of Captain Paddy McCarthy at Mill Lane on 22nd Nov. 1920. Seáno writes:
“Seán, in keeping with your report on Paddy McCarthy’s death I have to mention the story my mother Katty Dineen told me about the night he was shot by the side of Lena and Agnes Dennehy’s house. She (my mother) and her mother moved three doors down to Neily Hickey’s garage for safety. Paddy’s body was brought down and laid in front of mother’s window where he died the following morning. My mother had to wash away his blood from under the window. I am sending two photos to illustrate the exact location of that very window where he died and also of the back of Lena Dennehy’s house where he was shot.”
An image from the 1950s showing Seán Casey of Cloghoula taken in Mill Lane with Lena Dennehy’s house in the background outside which Captain Paddy McCarthy was shot. At that time the entrance to Mill Lane from Main Street was much narrower. Tap on the image to enlarge. (S.R.)
Looking for information on 1901 census about Building 20 Upper Mill Lane, Drishane, Millstreet. My father’s uncle James Dineen was a tailor in Millstreet until his death in 1915. His wife Nora (Casey) Dineen was a dressmaker and they had a Jeremiah Riordan, age 15, living with them. He might have helped them with their business. Our family will be visiting Millstreet this summer and would like to visit their home at Building 20 but it, doesnt appear on Google maps. Does anyone know where Upper Mill Lane is ? Also would LOVE to chat with any Dineen, Casey or Riordan Family!
