I'm not sure if this will be of any help, but you never know; it may help you in the future, or someone else who is nosing around.
My g-grandmother was Bridget (Bridie) Lenane, daughter of Eamon (Ned) Lenane. She had two brothers, Micheal (Mick) and Eamon (Ned), and a sister Nora (Narry) who married ? Bambury.
Bridget was born c.1880.
They lived in Urlee (a townland), Ballybunion, Co Kerry, near to Lisselton, which is halfway between the towns of Ballybunion and Listowel.
The name today, in most locations, tends to be pronounced so that it rhymes with "inane", whereas in Ballybunion it is pronounced more like the two girls names, "Lin Ann" with the stress on the "A".
