I posted a reply on this at the weekend but it does not seem to have got through.

Timothy was the son of Patrick Cosgrove and Catherine Enright who were married on 12 February 1839 in Shannagolden,County Limerick, Ireland.
Timothy arrived in NZ on August 11 1870 with his brother Francis.He was listed in the manifest as a farm labourer from Craigyard in Ireland.
It appears that he was a cousin of my GGrandfather Jackie Cosgrove who came over at about the same time and settled in the Arrow Junction.Several of Patrick's children settled in Gibbston.
I am interested in tracing the family back into Ireland and identifying the descendents of the family that came here.
I hope this helps and I look forward to hearing from you
