Ireland Native
Daniel Sweeney was born in Ireland.

Daniel SWEENEY[1] [2]

It is believed his father was Roe SWEENEY of Moyriesk a small townland in Clare, in close proximity to Rathclooney. Some descendants continue to name Moyriesk as their native place.

Daniels siblings have been determined through the analysis of a range of baptisimal records linking the families.

Daniel Swyny was named as the 'life' on two leases dated 15 October 1817 from-

  • Patrick McMahon; and
  • Daniel Hehir.

Daniel Sweeney is listed in the 1821 Freeholders List for Rathclooney.

Research suggests his wife was a MacNamara.

The Birth Date is a rough estimate. See the text for details.

Research Notes

1817 is the same date of the leases at Clonroad Beg. Possible connection to son John Swyny
