Hello My ancestor Patrick Rooney may have been born circa 1820 in Dolphins Barn Dublin.

I have found further relatives living in this area. His Father may have been John Rooney and his mother Christina with siblings James and Anne.

There is a marraige reference to 1766 for ......Rooney and .....D'Arcy at St Michael & St John Catholic church.  Sadly I do not know first names but this puts the Rooney family in Dublin as early as 1766.

I found a possible address in a search I conducted where he was living at Name:Patrick Rooney

Residence Year:1838

Street Address:Dolphins bn

Residence Place:Dublin, Ireland

Occupation or Trade:Tanner And Currier 

I believe this to be my ancestor as he married Anne Verschoyle In Dublin Circa 1837 in Dolphins Barn.

I have located birth records of three of his children

James, Patrick, and Henry all born and/baptised at St James Church Dublin

He died In 1851 or 1852 in Dolphins Barn leaving a family of 8 children and his wife Anne. Anne and all of her children with the exception of Susannah migrated to Australia on the Essex in 1871.

I have discovered that he is buried in Glasnevin cemetery aged 45 years in 1852.

The Verschoyle family was well known in Dublin and I enclose a newspaper article regarding an assault on John Verschoyle and Patrick Rooney in 1839
