I am wondering if your O'Mearas have any connection to mine who lived quite nearby. James Meara/O'Meara was the husband of Catherine Looney and they lived in the townland of Lissivane West in Kilbonane Civil parish.
The James Meara family and a Patrick Meara are listed there in the 1852 Griffiths valuation.
The eight sons & one daughter of James & Catherine came to the area north of Boston in the late 1800s-early 1900s, but the eldest son, also called James O'meara returned to Ireland after 1929 and died there in 1951. He is buried in Churchtown Cemetery of Beaufort, just west of Killarney.
Another James Meara, son of Daniel & Nellie Meara, died in 1961 and is buried in the same plot.
You previously mentioned having an O'Meara family history book. Does it mention either Lissivane West or Beaufort? Could you please send me author, date, publishing house, etc., as I might be able to order a copy.
Best, John Bierman
