I am looking for info about Mary Hourihan, b. c. Jan 1821, Caheragh, Cork to John Hourihan(e) and Mary Harrington. Mary Hourihan m. Nicholas Keohane of Clouncuggar, Caheragh and they had eight children, the youngest of whom Nicholas ("Nick the Fiddler") took the family farm. The Hourihans may have come from Bauravilla and had relatives named Hourihan in the Bantry area.

My family comes from Caheragh. I am interested in your post because of my connection. My line goes through Caheragh, my GGGfather was Patrick Hourihane from Caheragh, he was married to Nellie Collins from Killingleigh. Their children included (not complete list) Margeret, 08/01/1948;Mary, Aug 6, 1851; james, May 13, 1855; John April 27, 1857 (My GGF); Neil, AUg 4, 1862, Patrick Feb 25, 1865 and Cornelius, Nov 1, 1867.

Our two lines may be linked based on names you are looking for, they seem to recur each generation. If that is the case, we are looking for same family that produced Patrick and Mary, they could be siblings born around 1820's. Let me know if I helped.

Hi I'm also descended from the Bauravilla Hourihans. My ggggfather was John Hourihane from Bauravilla married to Mary Hourihane. Their son John my gggfather had a farm in Inchinagotagh, a neighbouring townland and later moved to Poundlick, just outside Skibbereen. Another son Cornelius is listed in the 1901 census as a farmer in Bauravilla so I'm guessing he inherited the family farm. I suspect we're all connected somehow but not sure exactly.

Surnames: Hourihan, McCarthy, Keohane
It would appear that your gggfather John would be the brother of my ggmother Mary who married Nicholas Keohane referenced in my earlier post. That would indicate that I am a generation older than you.
There may be three properties in Bauravilla involved, one of which was jointly held by a J. Hourihan in 1828, in 1832 it is listed jointly by Peter, Julia and Cornelius Hourihan; 1850s Peter; 1889 Anne Hourahan; 1928 Richard Forbes; 1930 Cornelius Cadogan. The second property may be a subdivision of the first and in 1880 is listed to Julia Hourihan; 1901 John Hourihan, this may be what shows in the census, 1910 Anne Hourihan, then Forbes-Cadogan. There is also the National School of which a Peter Hourihan was the lessor until Jeremiah McCarthy took over about 1871. McCarthys were teachers in Caheragh as I thin were Hourihans.

I have a Catherine Hourihan who arrived in Pt Adelaide, South Australia on the 6 Jun 1882 aboard the CLYDE. There do not appear to be any other HOURIHAN'S aboard; she would have been 18 years old, as she was born in Caheragh, Skibberdeen 7 Feb 1864, daughter of Timothy Hourihan (born about 1838) and Elizabeth Attridge. There was one other known child - a son Timothy born 16 May 1868, but I do not know what became of him or if there were other siblings.
Does anyone have this branch in their tree? It seems we must all be related.

I am a gg granddaughter of John Hourihan who was married to Mary Ellen Carthy. They had a son Michael who married a Julia Manning. I wonder if there is any connection. They had an address at Lissane in the parish of Caragh

Surnames: Hourihan, Carthy
I am sorry to say the specific names do not ring a bell or ring too many bells since those are names common to the area of Caheragh. I will keep them in mind. Assuming you know the time periods, have you tried the 1901 and 1911 Census of Ireland (which may be too recent) or the civil birth and marriage records now on Ancestry? JK

I am interested to know if you know anymore about Mary Ellen Carthy. My gg grandmother was Jane McCarthy of Upper Lissane in Caheragh. She had a sister Mary who was baptised 28 August 1824. Their parents were Andrew McCarthy and Ellen Hegarty.

Hello Kevin. Not offhand but that is partially due to my being away from my records. We do have both Hourihans and Hegartys in our mix. I will try to check when I get home in a week or so and let you know. John K.

Many thanks. I wonder if it is your daughter that is coming up as a DNA match to my wife's father Cornelius O'Sullivan?

She knows she is somehow related to the Keohanes in Clooncugger. Her family were living there from around 1833 until the 1860's and there are Keohane sponsors on the baptisms. One side of that family are Sullivan Prettie and the other is Harrington Caska
