Mick was also known as "Mickeen John Paddy" (because his father was John and his grandfather was Paddy). He was well known in the area for his ability to cure ringworm, this knowledge apparently having been passed down to him by his father. When people would come to him with ringworm, he would apply to the skin a mixture made up mostly of unsalted butter, but nobody knows what he put into the butter to make the cure.

155. Mary KEARNEY (Patrick KEARNEY , Ellen CUNNINGHAM , Myles , 'unknown' ) was born about 1881 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Mary married William (Bill) SHINE, son of Cornelius (Con) SHINE, on 28 Jan 1913 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. William died.

We have information on Bill's family from Dan Keane's account of tradespeople in Moyvane in the book The Boro' and the Cross, published in 2000 for the Millenium. Dan tells us that Bill was a descendant of a Mr. Shine who came to Kilbaha, Newtownsandes from Co. Cork (perhaps Cobh) with his brother and sister. It appears the brother eventually returned to Cork while Bill's ancestor settled in Kilbaha where he worked as a cooper. The siblings initially lived on a farm in Kilbaha which was eventually passed down to Bill. Bill's son, Connie Bill, inherited the farm and after his death it became the property of Patrick Kearney of Kilbaha (a relative of Bill's wife, Mary Kearney, perhaps?). From Dan we also know that "it was from this farm that Con Shine [grandfather to the present Connie and Jack on the Glin Road) came and married into the farm where Connie now resides, marrying a girl by the name of Mulvihill who owned the farm". Dan suggests that Bill's ancestor was planning to return to live in Cork when he changed his mind, having met Miss Mulvihill. "I don't know if the girl had any influence on him, but he was in a coach with his brother on their way to Cobh when he leapt from the coach and came back ro work as a cooper." According to Dan the Kibaha branch of the Shine family is the only one to be known as the Coopers, even though the Dirreen and Athea (both Co. Limerick) Shines also share the same Cork ancestor. We are also told that a "Dan Shine (brother to Molly Shine, the teacher) was also a cooper. His residence and workshop was wher Bobby Stack and family now live." However, we do not know if Dan was a Kilbaha or Dirreen/Athea Shine.

The Shines were also involved in the making of traps (for use with ponies) and trap wheels. "Con Shine, grandfather of Bridie Shine (née Shine), Glin Road, worked at the trade for years. His sons Con and Dan carried on the trade."

An Annie B. McCrossan married a Cornelius Shine in Co. Limerick in 1951. Could this relate to the marriage of Isobel above? Although the bride's first name is different, the McCrossan/Cornelius Shine combination could be said to be unusual in Co. Limerick.
