Help Sought to Learn More about Mogeely Roots


Tracing one’s ancestry can be interesting – if arduous at times – and, judging by social media this week, one person in particular is trying to learn more about his / her family links to Mogeely.
The post on the Mogeely Matters, Past and Present Facebook page read; ‘‘I’m trying to learn more about the birthplace of my great-grandfather, who was from Mogeely. His name was Michael Kenneally b. 1879 (Mogeely) d.1936 (Wolverhampton, England). He also had a brother, Patrick, who owned a shop (likely in Cork City). His parents were Michael Kenneally and Eliza Cronin (also married in Mogeely). He served in World War One as a veterinarian/groom (RAVC), and worked as a groom after military service. I matched DNA for a Briget "Biddy" Kenneally - she was likely a cousin or aunt. My great-grandfather died when my grandmother was only 16, so we don't know much more about him (other) than this. Thanks for any help you can offer.’’
