I am hoping to find out information regarding my ancestors from Lahardane, Kerry, Ireland. I will be in Ireland with my family in March 2024 - Limerick March 7th and 8th. I would love to connect with any relatives that may still be in the area. My mother believes that there were Murphy's that did not emigrate and remained in Ireland.
Thank you in advance for any assistance that you can provide!
Edward Murphy 1841 (my 2x great-grandfather)
Anne (Kelly) Murphy 1858-1948
William Aloysius 1885-1968 (my great-grandfather immigrated to Philadelphia,PA USA)
|Residence Date||31 Mar 1901|
|Residence Place||Lahardane, Killehenny, Kerry, Ireland|
|Relation to Head||Head of Family (Head)|
|Residence Date||2 Apr 1911|

Here is the actual 1911 census return http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Kerry/Killehenny/Lahardane/271586/
Edward Murphy died March 9 1919. Listed as age 74. Informant was daughter Bridget. Lived in Lahardane. Married
See fifth record for death of Anne in 1948. Age was understated. Jeremiah was the informant. https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1948/04553/4201599.pdf
Go to irishgenealogy.ie Civil Records Tab and search for marriage records for the Murphy children in the Listowel registration district.
I'm not local but it appears likely that there could be connections in the area today.

Thank you so much for this additional information!
I will get to work now to see what I can discover regarding current Murphy's in the area.
