hello Anna!
I found this forum as I was searching for info on my relatives descended from Daniel the master McCarthy. I am the great granddaughter of him and Kate (O'Driscoll), whose daughter Catherine Teresa (Tess) was my grandmother. I loved reading about your search, you seem as avid a researcher as I am.  I would love to fill in the gaps myself about Mary Kate (Daniel and Margaret's) first daughter.  Not sure if you know or not, but they had 2 children before she died at 29 I Andorra from a fall from horse and cart (fractured spine).  They had a son Cornelius Gerald b 6/15/1891 died at age 7 on 7/27/1898 (also so sad!)  After he and Kate O'Driscoll married, they went on to have 10 more children, one of whom they names Cornelius Stephen (perhaps to keep the strong family name - Cornelius was Kate's father and grandfather's name.
I see my catching up with you here is some years later than your original posts, but I would love to know - Were you able to find your Fitzgerald relatives for the reunion in Skibbereen? I am going to be in Ireland in May 2017 and plan to go through Drimoleague/Drinagh/Carrigbawn in Cork to see where my grandmother Tess was raised. she eventually emigrated to the US and settled in Springfield, MA

thanks for the reply! I wasn't sure u were still on the site, since I just joined.
I have been busy searching both of my sides of the family as my grandmother was daughter of Daniel,
but my grandfather (also a McCarthy) was from Green Street, Dingle, County Kerry. even though I have EU Citizenship and much info, it's been awhile since I lived in UK and live in U.S. presently and it's really addictive to do all this research!!!
in the last 48 hours, I think I traced my West Cork roots to the early 10th century, holy moly!!
I prefer to be in the archives personally, but alas, i'm across the pond!
my son is 10 and very excited about all this family he has!!! (he's an only child!)
If you want any info on Daniel (since he fathered some of those Fitzgerald's) let me know!

Hi there,
Well I had always sort of taken it that Mary Kate stayed in Ireland. I had her in the 1901 and 1911 census....at that time she was living with her Dad and his new wife Kate.

So I recently discovered that in 1917 in Hastings she married Cecil Theophilus Joslyn. On the marriage cert her Dad is Daniel...School master.
They had a number of children some of whom died in infancy.
Perhaps it will be possible down the line to make contact with some descendants of theirs. I really need to ascertain for certain that the MK I have mentioned is in fact daughter of my Grandaunt.

Yes Fitzgerald gathering was great but also lots of stress.
I hope that you have a great holiday in West Cork and that you connect up with loads of cousins.
No doubt we will be in touch again
Best wishes
Anna
