I have a Patrick Kenny 1861 married to a Margaret Byrne 1860. Maybe near or around Castlekevin? Or moved there for the census.
When I was young I went up to live in Wicklow for a while a year maybe, and my Great Uncle Jim Kenny, one of their kids,1897,was still alive. He used to sit me on his knee and teach me how to eat an orange with a spoon no less!
Anyway I never met any Byrnes but they seem to be prominent. I would like to know more about them or the older Kennys. Here is my information.
Patrick and Margaret had a lot of kids.
Mary Kenny (Married a Hetherington. The story goes the Byrne’s hung one of these in the great forest as they were Gombeens or rent collectors. Truth?) 1887 1955
Patrick J Kenny 1887
Peter L Kenny 1891
Margaret Kenny 1892
Thomas J Kenny 1894 Married to Elizabeth Sally
Matthew Kenny 1896 Married to Mary?
James J Kenny 1897 Married Mary Cullen?
Michael Kenny 1899
Rose Anne Kenny 1902 1987 (My Grandmother) Married Maurice Maher of Lombard Street.
Bridget Kenny Twin 1903 Married a William Byrne?
Elizabeth Kenny Twin 1903 Married a Lawrence Walsh 1903 1979
Patrick Kenny ? and Bridget Cullin 1815

Any help greatly appreciated!
