My ancester Bridget Daniel was from Killenaule and Baptized on July 29, 1817 in Cashel and Emily Parish.

Her parents were James Daniel and Mary Hogan from the same area.

Would be interested in hearing from anyone desceded from these ancesters.

  • Hi Murph, looked up the Baptism in the original register for Bridget , with father James and mother Mary, the address given was 

    Killenaule, probably the village Sponsors James and Mary Finn.

    The name Daniel was usually O,Donnell if you look closely at the entry you will see the o  in front of the surname.

    Killenaule is in Tipperary south riding in the Barony of Slieveardagh.

    I notice Historic Graves have enumerated the headstones there.

    Best of luck with your research and let me know if you would like me to look up more for you.

  • My ggg grandmother was Bridget Daniel. She married William Sweetman. Their children were Ellen (1835) James (1836-1903), Margaret (1839) and William (1841-1926). Their son William was my gg grandfather and he was a native of Cashel CO Tipperary, he was born in the RC Parish of Powerstown. William emigrated to Irvington on Hudson, NY in 1865 where he was a gardener and superintendent for the mansions of the New York wealthy.
    Christina, so the surname Daniel is O'Donnell?
    Murph, Which of Bridget's children are you descended from? I have been in touch with a descendent of James (1836-1903) and we are a DNA match. Would love to hear from you. Teresa Sweetman

  • Hi Terry, 

    Sorry for the delay in responding, 

    Thank you for your reply. My GGG grandmother I believe was Bridget Daniel baptized in Killenaule July29, 1817. (1817-1896)

    She married Michael Murphy (1815-1889).

    I am decended  from their son Jeremiah (1854-1929). He was a postman that lived in Killenule his whole life.

    I am not sure that we are talking about the same Bridget Danilel but I have taken the Ancestry DNA test and would be interested to see if we are related some how.

    I checked for your name as a cousin on the DNA test but did not see your name

    Best regards,

  • James,

    Thank you for reply.  It does appear that my ggg grandmother Bridget Daniel (sometimes listed as Margaret Daniel) is a different person from your ggg grandmother.  My ggg grandmother's children were born in the RC Parish of Powerstown. My ggg grandfather William Sweetman's brother James Sweetman died in 1903 in Longfield, Cashel. I have tested on Ancestry and FamilyTree DNA.  I don't see you as a match on Ancestry however we could still be related, but too far back for it to show up in DNA.    Our families were certainly in the vicinity of each other.

    I noticed a number of Daniels in the 1847 Tipperary workhouse.  It is not indexed so it was a slog to read all entries.  Patrick Daniel age 20 laborer p 31 of the registry.Margaret Daniel age 70, widow p 35 of the registry, William Daniel age 40 married pg 43 of the workhouse registry.  FYI in case your interested.

  • Thank you Terry,

    I am actually planning a trip to Killenaule for August or September of this year.But I am not sure that I will learn any more about family ancestors as there is so much on line.

    Thank you for your suggestion and I will take a look at the Tipperay workhouse of 1847. -Must have just been horrible during the potato famine.Hard to beieve that our ancestors endured.

  • Records for people who died in the Workhouse are on line under Civil parishes, at Tipperary Studies Digitisation Project.

    Headstone inscriptions, on same website.

  • Thanks, Christina.


    It's good to visit and see the terrain where your ancestors lived.  Tipperary was known as "Bloody Tipperary" during the Great Hunger times, due to many murders and crime.  Fourteen of my sixteen  gg grandparents lived through the 1845-51 Gorta Mor, evictions etc.  They were from East Galway/Roscommon, Kerry, Limerick, Donegal and Tipperary and emigrated. Then all their descendents married other Irish.  Epigenetics, we have that trauma in our genes too.
