Maher - Ballyhorgan/Ballintogher nr Listowel

Hi, I’m related to John Maher (son of Matthew Maher) and  Johanna Moloney (daughter of John Moloney).   This couple and are listed in the 1901/1911 censuses for Ballintogher/Ballyhorgan (nr Listowel, Kerry) with their children:


Bartholomew (b 1880 but birth cert states Mathias - after g/father)

Thomas (b 1882)

Kate (b 1885)

Hanora (b 1887)

Patrick (b 1890).




Bartholomew married Hanora Sullivan in 1912 and lived in Clooncolla/Ballyhorgan with their children Hanora (1913), John (1914??), Mary (1917) & a younger daughter (K?).  Hanora married Thomas Lenihan.  John had 8 children.


Patrick married Bridget Kissane in 1913, & lived in Ballintogher with Bridget (1913), Hanora (1915), John (1917), Thomas (1919) + two others born 1928 & 1934.  Hanora married fisherman David Casey.


Kate married Michael O’Brien and their sons were Jeremiah (1915) & Bartholomew O’Brien (1916) - they lived in Keel.


Hanora never married & no information found on Thomas.


I am hoping to connect with any distant relations in order to learn more about the family or anyone from the Ballyhorgan area who can help fill in the gaps of the family tree with regards their descendants.


Thank you.
