My gggrandmother was also Nancy Kenedy married to Charles Farris. My father was Patrick Farris who married Anne Handly and who also stayed in the Culleens area and brought up his 10 children. I know a lot about the families as I have a web-site that has a lot of the records for this area. You may wish to take a look at

I went to Culleens 2 years ago and went to Tuffy's and met my 2nd cousin once removed Mary who lives in the house that my ggrandparents lived and where my grandfather also Patrick Farris was born in 1874. Her grandmother was my grandfather's elder sister Anne Farris. I also met the 2 Farris brothers that live in the house that Charles Farris & Nancy Kenedy brought their children up. They live opposite Paddy Murray who lives in the house that you mention as his ggrandmother was also Mary Farris, daughter of Charles Farris & Nancy Kennedy. I have much more I could tell you so you may wish to email me separately from the message board..

I have not been able to ascertain to which Kenedy family Nancy belongs - have you?

As for the other names on the list: Murray, Farris, Hegarty, Kennedy, Kavanagh - my research surnames are as follows:
Farris, Kenedy, Handly/Hanley, Hennigan from Co. Sligo and Hegarty, Dougherty,Kearney, McColl of Co. Donegal.

My grandfather Patrick Farris married Helen Hegarty in Scotland in 1902.
