Patrick FINUCANE was born about 1818 in Co. Kerry. He died on 4 Aug 1902 in Clounprohus, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Patrick married Catherine (Kitty) WALSH on 11 Feb 1854 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry.

I do not know where exactly in Kerry Patrick was born. According to his marriage record he lived in Leitrim, Moyvane, Co. Kerry, so he may have been born there. However he and his wife, Kitty, raised their family in Clounprohus, Moyvane so he may have come from there. Kitty had Leitrim connections in that her brother Maurice farmed in Leitrim East. Perhaps he was working on Maurice's or a neighbouring farm when he met Kitty. There is an entry in Griffith's Valuation (carried out in 1851 for North Kerry) for a John Finucane of Clounprohus. I think it likely John and Patrick were related. Perhaps John was Patrick's father and Patrick got the Clounprohus farm upon his marriage. This is of course all pure conjecture.

Patrick and Kitty's eldest son, Michael, lived and farmed in Cuss, Gale Bridge, Moyvane, which seems surprising as one would have thought he would inherit the Clounprohus farm, which appears to have gone to a younger brother, Bill. Cuss lies just to the north of Clounprohus, the townlands being separated by the Galey river. It could be that the Finucanes had land on both sides of the river, with the Cuss land going to Michael? However, this is pure speculation. Note that although we do not know which of the Leitrim townlands Patrick was from (Leitrim East, Leitrim West or Leitrim Middle), Leitrim West lies just to the north of Cuss.

Patrick died of cardiac disease at the age of about 84.

Catherine (Kitty) WALSH [Parents] was born about 1830 in Co. Kerry. She died on 25 Dec 1902 in Clounprohus, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Catherine married Patrick FINUCANE on 11 Feb 1854 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry.

Catherine died only about five months after her husband, Patrick.

They had the following children.

  M i Michael FINUCANE was born about 1854. He died on 9 Mar 1930.
  M ii
John P. FINUCANE was born about 30 Jul 1856 in Clounprohus, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 1 Aug 1856 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died before 30 May 1862 in probably Clounprohus, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

John must have died as a child because Patrick and Catherine had another son six years later whom they named John.
  M iii
James FINUCANE was born about 9 Dec 1859 in Clounprohus, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 11 Dec 1859 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Unfortunately we have no information on James.
  F iv Sarah FINUCANE was born about 1862.
  M v
John FINUCANE was born about 30 May 1862 in Clounprohus, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 1 Jun 1862 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Patrick died in infancy.
  M x William (Bill) FINUCANE was born about 30 Mar 1869. He died on 23 Sep 1957.
  F xi
Margaret FINUCANE was born about 21 Jan 1871 in Clounprohus, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 23 Jan 1871 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.
  F xii Bridget FINUCANE was born about 21 Nov 1872. She died in 1936.

Michael (Mick) MULVIHILL (caution: relationship to siblings not verified) [Parents] was born about 1824. He died on 29 Jan 1907 in Gortdromasillihy, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Michael married Hanora (Norrie) CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) about 1853.

I am told that Mick was from Shronowen, Listowel, Co. Kerry. Apparently he had a brother named Con who married Nance Cunningham who a sister of Mick's wife, Norrie, i.e., two Mulvihill brothers married two Cunningham sisters. However, further research needs to be carried out to verify that Michael was a brother of Con, hence the caution.

Hanora (Norrie) CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) [Parents] was born about 1826. She died on 10 Aug 1906 in Gortdromasillihy, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Hanora married Michael (Mick) MULVIHILL (caution: relationship to siblings not verified) about 1853.

Norrie and her husband, Mick, lived in Gortdromasillihy, Newtownsandes (now known as Moyvane).

A number of family trees on the Ancestry website show Norrie as being a daughter of Dan Cunningham and Hanora Enright. While it seems likely she was indeed their daughter, this has not been verified. However, I have been DNA-matched to Purtill descendants of Norrie's, the type of match indicating that she was a daughter of Dan and Hanora's. While not proving this exact connection, it certainly supports it.  

It seems Norrie was a sister of Nance Cunningham, first wife of Con Mulvihill who was apparently a brother of Norrie's husband, Mick, i.e., two Mulvihill brothers married two Cunningham sisters. However, further research needs to be carried out to verify this.

There is cause for confusion in that Dan's brother Myles (my great-great-great-grandfather) also had daughters named Norrie and Nance, but it appars they were the Norrie and Nance who married Jim Thornton and Pat O'Connor respectively. To add to the confusion, Dan's son Bryan also appears to have had daughters named Norrie and Nance.

They had the following children.

  M i
Daniel MULVIHILL was born in 1854 in Gortdromasillihy, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died in between 1854 and 1858.

Daniel must have died as a child as another son born to his parents in 1858 was also named Daniel.

  F iii Hanora (Nora) MULVIHILL was born about 17 Mar 1857. She died on 30 Jan 1951.
  F iv
