ok there's been more info obtained on my Scannells and it seems i was given alot of conflicting information. Dennis was known as owd Dinny around town, and his wifes name was Kit Shanahan, not Mary McCarthy as I was first led to believe. Can't seem to find out where the McCarthys' actually come into it, maybe through a marriage somewhere. There are Fitzgeralds in the family,I have met my second cousins' on the Scannell side. The other info I have are that Dennis and Kit had children, Jeremiah(Jer), whose children are Jerome, Michael, John, Teresa, Patricia and a couple of others whose names I can't remember. Michael Joseph, My granddad who married Bridget Slattery and they in turn had nine children Mary-Helen who i think married into the Fitzgerald family. Hannah who married a william Lynch, he was a british soldier I'm told and they emigrated to America.Dennis was born 1868 approx, and he died in 1952ish, Kit was i think born 1869-70 ish and died in the 1930s. Dennis lived in Kevin Barrys villas, with his son and daughter in law Connie, he was taken from there to be interred in either abordornay old cemetary or Rath cemetary (Rathass) in Tralee. I can't find out any more though I have asked at the local library. There must be a connection somewhere, as not only does there seem to be scannells, fitzgeralds, Slatterys' but the names Jeremiah seem to keep cropping up too. I'd be interested to know if any of your other names are the same as I have. I know there is a Bernard Fitzgerald (Ber) as well. I could always contact our Philippa to ask her of any names you can pass onto me.
