Hugh CASSIDY[1][2]

Family stories suggest that Hugh Cassidy was allegedly struck on the head during an argument while returning from a fair in Boho.[3]


Y-Chromosome DNA Confirmed
Cassidy-622's direct paternal relationship to Cassidy-1606 is confirmed because:
  1. This yDNA test of Cassidy-453 and this yDNA test of Cassidy-1188 are a close match. 35/37 match
  2. The most recent common ancestor in the yDNA line of Cassidy-453 and the yDNA line of Cassidy-1188 is Cassidy-1606.

Research Notes

Could this be the same Hugh Cassidy mentioned in relation to the Macken Fight? Unlikely given his age. Perhaps the family story is a bit confused? Perhaps Owen (this Hugh's father) may also have had a brother named Hugh and the reference was for him, although the death certificate suggests otherwise?


  1. Profile created by Veronica Williams, 7 June 2014.
  2. Paternal relationship is confirmed through Y-chromosome DNA testing. Cassidy-453 and Cassidy-1188 match on 35 out of 37 markers (see YSearch IDs 9EJCS and ZQYVC) thereby confirming their relationship as fifth cousins and their direct paternal lines back to their MRCA as yet Unnamed CASSIDY.
  3. Email held from O. CASSIDY to Veronica Williams dated 5 June 2014.
