My great grandmother - Margaret Connor was born in Droumavalla on 17/6/1878 to Daniel Connor and Ellen Sullivan. Does anybody know about the area of Droumavalla or of the Connor/Sullivan family.

I looked up the location of Dromavalla - it is southeast
of the capitol city of Kerry, Tralee. I've also seen it
spelled Dromvally. Drom comes from droim meaning ridge
or hillock and vally is probably from the word baile
meaning town or home.

Hi, My great grand parents were Patrick Connor (b.1844 approx) and Margaret Connor (b.1857) of Dromavally / Dromavalla, Tralee. During my checks I've noted that their surname is often 'Connor' and also 'O'Connor'. They had 7 live children (as at the 1911 census) and their child, Johanna (b. 1896) is my grandmother. Johanna or Hannah / Hanna (as she was known) emigrated to New Zealand around 1919 / 1920. She married Thomas O'Hara in Wellington, New Zealand in 1925 and they had 7 children before dying in 1941 aged 46, of rheumatic heart disease. If any of your searches / relatives tie up with this family then please let me know. - Peter
