Hi there,

No, I do not know if he is any relation. The only Culhane's I know about are Ellen and her parents. Best wishes, Julie

Hi Bill,

I have tried to find out details of the ship they came out on, but have not been successful. She must have been a very strong woman to travel across the world, in search of a better life for her and her family. I am living in Adelaide now. My Mum and Dad are still in Oamaru, and I lived in Dunedin for several years before venturing overseas. Am disappointed that I never made it to Ireland. Looked up white pages when I lived in the UK and there were plenty of Culhane's and O'Brien's in the phone book, living in Glin. If you are ever in the South Island, let me know, I am sure Mum and Dad would love to meet you. Best wishes, Julie

Hi there,
My relation was Margaret O'Brien, married name Kearns. Her son, James, is my grandfather. I have copies of birth certificates for Margaret, Helen, Anastasia and Ellen. I also have Ellen (Corrigan's) death certificate showing her parents names as Mary Gurin and Mortimer Culhane. I also have a copy of William O'Brien's death certifcate. Happy to scan and email if you would like a copy of any of these. Best wishes Julie Kearns

Hi There, a little more info on Ellen Culhane, she died in Dunedin 25th August 1902 and is buried in Oamaru Cemetery. Death certificate states she lived in NZ for 25 years putting arrival date around 1877. Parent's names Mary Gurin and Mortimer Culhane listed on the Griffiths valuation of Ireland - Kilfergus - County Limerick as living in Glenagragara which was previously known as Ballygilltenane.
There has been a Culhane mailing list setup as follows:-

that might be of interest, as it seems all the Culhane's from this area are related. They are mainly looking at Culhane's who immigrated to Australia and New Zealand Regards Julie

I am  looking for Ellen O'Brien (nee Culhane) who was married to William O'Brien a shoemaker in Ireland who died and Ellen Immigrated to New Zealand with her children.

They had a daughter named Margaret, (my great grandmother) who was born on the 25.12.1875 and lived in Oamaru, Otago.  I am trying to find out when they left Ireland. I have checked passenger lists for Bluff and am having trouble finding lists for Port Chalmers.

Any help would be appreciated.
