Death of Donal Killourhy (Kilouray similar) 1921
« on: Wednesday 10 September 14 19:34 BST (UK) »
I am after any information re the family of Donal Killourhy  who was killed by the Black and Tans in 1921 at the Moymore South Chapel .   His uncle John who married Mary Rouine were my great great grandparents.    I believe Marys parents were Michael Rouine and Susan O'Donnell from the area of Moymore South three miles from Ennistymon.  I believe the stone cottage where Mary was born is still in the Rouine family.  Any information re my Irish ancestry would be appreciated ........Sharon

There is a Daniel Killourhy Moymore mentioned in this on page 164
Killed on 5/5/21
The quality of the print is very bad so it doesn't read well for searching, he may get another mention or others with the same surname

You have at least 2 other threads on this family, it's better to keep to one thread or post links to the other threads so people can see what has already been found.

Do you think Donal and Daniel are the same person?
Have you any idea what age he was when he died?
Did you read the links to see if there was anything more?
How do you know this man is Mary's cousin?

Yes they are the same person
He was about 29yrs  when he died
Thank you for the links
He was in fact the nephew  of her husband  John  Killourhy   Someone else in the family has researched certain portions of the family   and I obtained the connection from them

The Danny in rathmore's link was 29 and was killed at the church. He's from Ballyfaudeen which is less than 3k from the church in Moymore South even less by field.
This is possibly him

Or there is this younger chap
