Patrick McDonnell and Ellen(Scully) lived in Banagher Parish, Kings County(Offaly), 1850-1900. Their children were Michael, Patrick, Martin, Edward, Thomas, Ellen, Bridget and Margaret. Ellen Scully's parents were William Scully and Eleanor Molloy, from Kilcormac Parish. They had several other children, including Terence and Johanna, who were witness to the baptisms of some of the McDonnells. All McDonnells emigrated, mostly to Australia, by 1910. Would like to here from anyone with connections to these families. Thanks,John McDonnell.
