Michael (Mick) MULVIHILL (caution: relationship to siblings not verified) [Parents] was born about 1825. He died in between 30 Mar 1901 and 2 Apr 1911 in probably Gortdromasillihy, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Michael married Hanora (Norrie) CUNNINGHAM 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 [Parents] was born about 1835. She died in between 30 Mar 1901 and 2 Apr 1911 in probably 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).

Apparently 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.

According to a family source, Norrie and Nance were daughters of my great-great-great-grandfather Myles Cunningham of Kilbaha, Newtownsandes whose seven daughters all married and lived in the parish of Newtownsandes. However, it appears that Myles's daughters Norrie and Nance actually married Jim Thornton and Pat O'Connor respectively. My hunch, however, is that the Norrie and Nance who married Mick and Con were closely connected to Myles's family. It is possible, for example, that they were daughters of Myles's brother Daniel and his wife, Hanora Enright, making them first cousins of Myles's children. Further research would need to be carried out to try to verify such a connection.

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.
