Hello everyone.  I have recently learned that my parents' families, on both sides, are from the Kilmihil and Miltown Malbay areas.  The surnames would be Considine, McCarthy, O'Neill and Marrinan.  I will be traveling to the area in October and am starting the process of looking for any relatives I may have still in Ireland.  Great, great grandfather Jeremiah McCarthy of Ennistymon Rd., Miltown Malbay.  His wife Ann Marrinan McCarthy.  My great grandmother Bridget Considine O'Neil and her husband James O'Neil.  I am descended from O'Neills and O'Neils, both spellings.  Thanks for anything anyone can contribute.

    The above link has a large number of genealogical sources which are worth loooking through.
