Does anyone have or may be willing to look into background info on the families of Mary Sugrue, b. in Glaantane, and Michael Sullivan, b. about 1820, no location given, who were married  25 Feb 1854 at Prior R.C.Parish?  I am related to them by DNA, but I don't know exacely how. I noticed that Prior Civil Parish in 1834 census includes the family of my grandmother Margaret O'Shea's family. They were O'Sheas and Curranes from Inchobuoy (near Maister Gaiothy, pls. excuse the spelling)  in Canuig/Iveragh.)  Her parents were Patrick Shea and Julia Currane.  I have looked into my extensive Sullivan family records and have ruled out the direct ancestors of Margaret's husband, Michael Patrick Sullivan, born Upper Behehagne, Kilcrohane RC Kerry, in 1885. The only Michael Sullivan born in the 1820s into that family emigrated, married and is buried in America. This Michael Sullivan is buried in Prior. Could someone one check the records to see if there are O'Sheas or Curranes are connected to the Sugrues or  or her husband Michael?

  • Hi Wigbat

    Sorry it's taken a while to reply to your enquiry.

    I looked on www.irishgenealogy.ie/ (free online) for O'Shea - Sugrue & Currane - Sugrue marriages and found these:

    Marriage of ROGER SUGRUE of NR and MARY SHEA of KILIBOUNA on 9 February 1862

    Marriage of MICHAEL SUGRUE of BEENBANE and HELEN SHEA of BEENBANE on 26 November 1870

    Marriage of PATRICK O'SHEA of SPA and BRIDGET SUGRUE of SPA on 20 August 1909

    Marriage of MICHAEL SUGRUE of COARS and HANORA SHEA of KILOGNAVUM on 16 February 1890

    Marriage of JAMES O'SHEA of HARIS STREET and CATHERINE O'SUGHRUE of HARIS STREET on 13 February 1836 TRALEE

    Marriage of TIMOTHY SUGRUE of BEALDARIG and BRIDGET SHEA of BEALDARIG on 9 February 1834 KENMARE

    There are 143 records to go through and quite a few Shea - Sugrues so I'll leave it to you to check them as I'm not sure any outside Prior are relevant.

    There are only a few Currane - Sugrue marriages

    Marriage of TIMOTHY SUGRUE of NR and MARY CURRANE of BREAGHUG on 28 February 1867:

     

     

     

    Marriage of DANIEL CURRANE of NR and HONORA SUGHRUE of DROMID on 28 November 1853 PRIOR

    Marriage of THOMAS O'SUGHRUE of TRALEE and ELLEN CURRANE of TRALEE on 29 May 1836

    Marriage of MICHAEL CURRANE of NR and BRIDGET SUGRUE of BOLUS on 9 February 1869 PRIOR
