My great grandmother - Ellen Flaherty was borm around 1840. I am guessing that her father was Thomas Flaherty and mother's first name was Ellen. My greatgrandmother had a daughter named Ellen and all of her children I have been able to track down also has an Ellen. I am also guessing that Thomas Flaherty's father's nam,e was John and mother's Catherine (don't know last name). If this is right, then Thomas had a brother John who married Anne Connor. My great grandfather was Edmund O'Connor.... they lived in N Aughacasla in Castlegregory area.
