She is NOT Ellen Carmody who dies 1872 in Co.Limerick.
Jeremiah had issue by 1st wife:
Jeremiah mar 2ndly, 19 Feb 1873 [Ardfert RC par records] to Honora Lawlor [Norah, born 1848 or 1841, Co.Kerry].
She was dau of Bartholomew Lawlor [parish register] or Terence Lawlor [mar cert], farmer, of Ardconnell, N of Ardfert.
See mar cert from here. Says married 20 Feb 1873, but the parish register is more likely to be correct.
See parish records entry LHS and RHS. From here. Also here. See transcript.
Mar wit by John Carmody and Bartholomew Lawlor.
They are living Liscahane at children's baptisms 1875 to 1884.
In the 1885 trial, Jeremiah says he is a farmer at Liscahane, and a tenant of Sir Edward Denny, 4th Baronet.
Jeremiah and his 19 year old son Patrick got involved in a fight in 1885
on the road home to Liscahane from Tralee.
It seems his son Patrick, who had already been involved in a number of fights, dragged his father into one of his disputes.
The Carmodys seriously injured one of the other men. Jeremiah and Patrick were both prosecuted for assault.
He, not his son (who is too young) would be
"Jeremiah Carmody" who wit his son John's mar 1887.
"Jeremiah Carmody" sp bapt of Ellen O'Callaghan at Tralee, 1892.
See them listed at Liscahane in 1901 census. He is farmer. Ages of children are inaccurate.
Jeremiah Carmody, of Liscahane, is listed as brother of Nora Carmody at her funeral 1909.
See them listed at Liscahane in 1911 census. He is farmer.
Jeremiah had issue by 2nd wife:
Jeremiah Carmody claimed that Reidy tripped up his son Patrick as they passed, and there was an altercation
which soon became a fight.
Both sides suffered injuries. Doyle was seriously injured and put in hospital.
Jeremiah Carmody said he did not know what caused the fight. However it was claimed in court that his son Patrick had been in a number of fights and was already in a dispute with Reidy.
According to the three men, the Carmodys' testimony was all lies, and young Patrick Carmody had started the fight, and both Carmodys inflicted the injuries.
See initial article in Kerry Weekly Reporter, March 28, 1885.
Reidy and Brennan were arrested and charged with assault.
Jeremiah and Patrick were also arrested, and also charged with assault. They appeared on 13 Apr 1885 at Tralee Petty Sessions. See entry from here. It was adjourned for a week.
Reidy and Brennan were tried on Mon 8 June 1885 at Tralee Petty Sessions. See long report in Kerry Sentinel, June 9, 1885. Same report in Kerry Weekly Reporter, June 13, 1885. The report says Carmody and his son are also being prosecuted. The case was adjourned.
I cannot find the conclusion of either of the two cases.
