O'Shea - Carrick On Suir - More Info
« on: Saturday 12 February 11 12:23 GMT (UK) »
My grt grandfather James Shea (on his bith certificate,later used the name O'Shea) was born 1891, Carrick on Suir Tipperary in the workhouse.
His mother was listed as Ellen Shea, no father.

From talking to family members we seem to think he had one brother - Garrigan.
I can find no info on the name Garrigan O'Shea (or any record of anyone even having the name Garrigan).  Does anyone know if this was an Irish name of the time?

James had a son, Michael O'Shea born 1919 Carrick on Suir, Ballyrichard Road.
His mother was Annie Shea.

Family members seem to think James and Annie also had two other sons, James and Patrick.
I have no info on these.

Lasly, from James' military records I can ascertain that Annie was living on Ballyrichard Road at the time of their marriage (1915) to the time Michael O'Shea was born (1919).  Ellen (his mother) was living, what looks like Garryrue or Garysue Carrick on Suir.  Does anyone recognise this as a place in Carrcik?

I am a granddaughter of a James O'Shea who lived in Royal College St London 'till he died around 1981. Didn't take much notice of things going on around me, but I think it was Harrigan as a surname not garrigan as Christian name. He always said his first wife's name was Hannie. Can't remember his second wife's name or if she was mother to Paddy, Mary and Billy, but his eldest son was Micky.

Hope this helps.

There are three  "Garryroe" place names for Co. Tipperary  listed on this link.
  As Carrick-on-Suir is very close to borders of counties Kilkenny, Tipperary and Waterford, the place you are looking for, could possibly be in any of them.  There is also a place name called Garnarea close to Carrick-on-Suir, which I have also seen spelt as "Garrynarea"

I realize that Hammond01 the original poster has not been on Rootchat since 2012.

Welcome to RootsChat
Patrick O'Shea and Anastasia O'Flaherty 7 April 1927.
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1927/09102/5292539.pdf

Do they sound like yours?
The O is only used once with the Flaherty, someone got a bit carried away by the look of it.

If that is the correct couple this looks like Anastasia and family in 1911

haven't found her birth yet but this looks like her sister Kate

Mother's name should be Hahessy and she was registered as Staisa, bottom of the page.
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1904/01836/1716815.pdf

The Mother's surname is different for every child Halessy this time
Ellen 1902

I guess I should stop in case it's the wrong family.

Sinann, thanks so much, that looks like that is  the marriage certificate for my Grandparents. I'm going to look at the other links for more but you are a great help and thanks for the fast reply.
