Surnames/tags: McCarthy MacCarthy McCarty
The goal of this project is to find every non-living person with this surname and make a wikitree profile for them. We are especially interested in the McCarthy/MacCarthy Family from West County Cork, where they have been powerful landlords since the time of Cromwell or before. They were known as McCarthy Reigh, or McCarthy the Great and they controlled much of West Cork in their day. Our most recent generations include Ellen Troy McCarthy who married William McCarthy and is the mother of Hannah Marie "Rosie" McCarthy Ahern, recently deceased, of Top Cross in Lisgoold Parish in northern County Cork. We would like to find all of their McCarthy ancestors back to their earliest McCarthy kin.
