are you still researching? We have Donovans in Wales coming from Clonakilty in 1911.  Patrick born 1853 in Clonakilty and father John Donovan around 1820s. J We know Patrick had Mary and Sylvester as siblings I am sure there were more! Patrick was married to Ellen Wren also of Conakilty in  1878

Update: The previous link still valid for details.
My wife's O'DONOVANs of Clonakilty are two families - one from the townland of Derrylahan (Dunmanway) and the other from nearby Shannonvale. The Shannonvale connection is probably connected to the O'DONOVANs of O'Donovan's Hotel in Clonakilty, whose ancestry I reviewed in late 2016 (thanks to the owners) who also have Shannonvale origins. Unfortunately, the link is at least a generation before the start of local church records.
The links to the Welsh family out of Clon has not been established to these families.
