My ancestors - O'Rahilly - Contents

John Rahilly

John Rahilly, born est c.1750,
possibly of Glangristeen, Kilcummin parish, E Co.Kerry,
or (perhaps more likely) just ancestor of Glangristeen branch,
mar Ellen O'Donoghue [dau of Cornelius O'Donoghue, or "Corney O'Donoghue", of Killeen, Co.Kerry],
this would be Killeen, Killaha par, SE of Glenflesk (see map),
we say this because his son Denis is living at Killeen in 1822 when he gets his child baptised at nearby Glenflesk,
i.e. this is NOT Killeen, Aghadoe parish, N of Killarney (see map),
