Danny was forced to emigrate to the United States in 1920, apparently because of his involvement with the I.R.A. in Kerry.

Here is some further information on Danny taken from a tribute on the Moyvane website, www.moyvane.com:

"Danny was the second child and first boy in a family of eleven children. He attended school in Moyvane until 1915 when his mother passed away leaving his father with the responsibility of eleven children with the oldest 16 years of age and the youngest just an infant. Sometime around 1918 he became a volunteer in the Kerry Brigade of the Irish Republican Army and because of his involvement in IRA activities he was forced to leave Ireland in 1920. He lived in New York for about a year before moving to Chicago where he would spend the rest of his life. In Chicago he worked as a conductor for the Surface Lines Transit Systems and after 12 years there he joined the Chicago Fire Department and retired as a Lieutenant in 1963".
