Hi Helen,

I live in Newcastle Australia about 100 klm from Sydney in New South Wales.

I have only just received some info that relates to your Grandparents.

I am researching my husbands family and am in particular looking for James Mulqueeney who married Mary O'Donohoe in Clare in 1854.

I believe but can not confirm that James parents were Michael Mulqueeney and Mary O'Dea.

I have been told that the witness to Anne Mulqueeney's marriage in 1857 was Mary Mulqueeney and was hoping that it was the Mary O'Donohoe that married James and that maybe there is a connection there.

I live so far away from Ireland that even though I did get there last year it will probably be sometime before I go back. Apparently the cottage near the old graveyard outside of Lizdoonvarna is called Mulqueeney cottage and that area and Kilfenora are the areas that our family came from.

Would love to find out if there is a connection

Regards Judy
