Blennerhassett-Walsh Connection? Co. Kerry only
Posted by: Maureen Gamble (ID *****8269) Date: September 04, 2007 at 21:33:27

My ggm Elilzabeth Blennerhassett married James Boyle of Leaha Cordal, Co. Kerry. Elilzabeth was from the Gortatlea BHs, a descendant of Thomas the Disinherited.

The Blennerhassetts were supposed to be close cousins of the Walsh family near Castleisland and had a farm 'down the hill' from Jim and Eliza. Various members of the Walsh and Boyle family lived together in Washington, DC, when they emigrated and listed themselves as cousins on their papers.

However, I've never been able to find the marriage connection. Any help?
