Hello Liscarroll members.

I had been looking for more info on my Leahy background. My John Leahy married Mary Ellen Sharpe whose people were from Liscarroll. I was trying to see if there were any other leads to follow on the Leahy side where I have not gotten far back and saw an article online on the Battle of Liscarroll where Leahy´s Farm is mentioned. Does anyone know any more about these Leahys please? Above mentioned John Leahy was teh son of a John Leahy who owned a shop on Broad Street in Charleville and that John Leahy was the son of a John Leahy, a farmer, but I can not get any info on him.

I would love to hear more in case there is a link!

Thank you all, Jackie Leahy

  • Hi Maureen,

    I may be clutching at straws here! 1874 seems to be the date of birth of both of them. His father was John Leahy a farmer and I have nothign else to go on, but it coudl make sense that he was from Liscarroll as this is where the Sharpes were from.

    Thanks so much,

  • Thanks Maureen, yes this is the same info as I have for that Joh Leahy and was hoping to find outmore about his father (also John Leahy and listed as a farmer). Thank you so much anyway.
