Daniel Hallahan (1885-1956) and Dinah Collins Hallahan ( 1892-1980) of 2 Albert Road Cork City

Daniel Hallahan and Dinah Collins Hallahan were at one time residents of 2 Albert Road, Cork. Earlier they were on South Terrace.

From the Irish Examiner, 26 Aug 1980:

"On August 25, 1980, at St. Mary's Home, Montenotte, Dina, beloved wife of the late Dan Hallahan, late of 2 Albert Road. Deeply regretted by her loving daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, daughter-in-law, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, relatives and friends. May she rest in peace. Funeral on today (Tuesday) after 10:45 a.m. Requiem Mass in the chapel St. Mary's Home to St. Finbarr's Cemetery."

Daniel predeceased Dinah 25 Dec 1956. At one time he worked for the railroad, as did his and Dinah's fathers.

Dinah was my grandmother's first cousin. Have lots of info on both Dinah's and Daniel's origin families. The only info I have (after 1919 marriage) on children is daughter Margaret, born 3 Mar 1920

and son Daniel, born 6 Feb 1921.

Have no info on Margaret's and Daniel's marriages and have no other clues. 

Desperately looking for descendants to establish connections with this branch of the family !

  • Hi, Have you got a tree in Ancestry and have you any connections with Scotland?

  • Margot, it depends on what specifically you want to see. I'm trying to figure out what happened to their descendants.  

    Our roots are West Cork as far back as I can go back (about 1810's).

    Only distant pertinent relative I know of who WENT to Scotland was Very Revd Daniel Canon Collins M.R.  (1868-1934).  Born in West Cork.  Served in the Archdiocese of Glasgow, died while at St. Brigid's in Ballieston.

  • Hi, I saw Margaret Hallahan b 1920 in Cork.
    She died in Scotland in 2002.
    She was married in Southampton. The chap she married was also from Cork.
