Daniel Rahilly, of Lisbaby Lower

Daniel Rahilly, born est c.1740,
of Lisbaby Lower, Co.Kerry (his brother Conn had Lisbaby Upper),

mar Hannah O'Donoghue.
Hannah was dau of Donal McShane O'Donoghue, or Donoghue, of a farm called "Inch" at Rusheen More, Killaha par, near Glenflesk, SE of Killarney (see map).
Hannah's 1st cousin was a Donoghue woman who married Warren, and was paternal grandmother of Michael Warren of Killarney.
Despite only being related to some of the Rahillys (those below), and not himself descending from any Rahillys, Michael Warren got interested in researching the Rahilly family for The O'Rahilly. He corresponded with The O'Rahilly in 1902-08 about family history, and his letters in [P102/207] are probably the single most important source for the Rahilly family history.
