Looking for any history about McDonnells from Ventry. Local sources tell me there are none remaining. I have traced my g.g.g Grandfather John McDonnell back to Emlagh and married Kate Cavanaugh in parish Balliferriter, but no further. A local source told me there were two McDonnell brothers from Ventry, one moved to Emlagh, the other down the road to Muragh. My g.g.g.Grandfather eventually moved to John Street in Dingle in the mid 1800s. All of his descendants eventually moved to Holyoke, MA. I have traced all of them, now trying to move backwards. Any leads/potential sources would be appreciated.
