McCarthy Obituary search

Hello, I have been looking for the parish and county in Ireland that my James F. McCarthy was born in. DOB is approx. March 1849. I believe he was born in County Kerry. He married Mary E. Carroll approx. 1873 likely in New Haven. Her parents were Patrick Carroll and Margaret Faughman. James died Jan 24, 1922 in either New Haven or West Haven. I am hoping an obituary would give me a more precise location of birth. I have not found that James and Mary had any children. Any help would be so appreciated as I have been searching for years. Jean

I can't help with the obituary since I don't live in state, but I did find the town marriage record for James McCarthy and Ellen Carroll. They were married Jan 9, 1873 in St Patricks Church by M. Hart. According to the Ct death records index James McCarthy died on Jan 24, 1922 in New Haven so that is where his death cert will be located. I couldn't find any children by those two listed in the town birth records.
