I recently discovered that my 3xgreat grandfather was a tenant on land in Mount Blakeney.  Most of what I know about him in Kilbreedy Minor is from Distress and Benevolence on Gertrude Fitzgerald’s Limerick Estate in the 1840s, by Desmond Norton.  His father William was the previous tenant on the land according to t he 1833 Tithe Applotment Book.  His mother was also on the land still, but only listed as Widow Callaghan.  After being moved off theland in 1846, John moved his family to Effin where they sublet from his brother-in-law James Carroll.  After his wife Hanora nee Carroll died (about 1857), he moved the family to Australia where I lost track of him and the rest of the family, other than my gggrandfather Michael Callaghan. 

Any help would be welcome.
