They were believed to be related to McCoy of Curramore House and Clare House (who were also buried at Kilfergus).
DNA now proves the families are related since there is a DNA match between Patrick McCoy (of Curramore) and his wife Kitty Barrett and others in her family (descendants of McCoy of Glin). However the exact relationship is not known.
