Walsh, Glengrant

Return to Mooncoin Families

1 - The first recorded members of this family are Richard Walsh who married Eleanor Quinn, Licketstown (daughter of Stephen) on the 23rd Feb 1789 – Eleanor died 30th Nov 1843 age 81(1762). Richard died before the 1821 census and is probably the Richard Walsh who died 16th Sep 1804 age 45 (1759) - see Portnascully No. 38.
2 - His grave stone was erected by his brother Robert, who is listed in the 1821 census age 53(1768). Robert married into the Madigan's in Kilcraggan.
As both Robert and Richard named their first son James you would have to assume their father was also James.

Would also think that the following were sisters of Richard and Robert

3 - Mary, listed in the 1821 census age 63 (1758), married Thomas Dunphy, Moonveen on 15th Feb 1773
4 - Johanna, listed in the 1821 census age 52(1769), died 23rd  Feb 1847 age 80(1767) - See Carrigeen No 155. Johanna married her 2nd cousin Peter Keefe, Glengrant on 5th Feb 1789

A first cousin of Richard, Joan Walsh married Peter Dunphy Ballygorey 8th Apr 1782. Joan I believe may have been a sister of Robin Walsh
