I am looking for inromfation on James Kelleher B1889 Rathbeg Irish Volunteer from Clydagh Co Kerry Reg no 9899 who was injured in WW1 and had an artificial leg. He was discharged on 29th November 1918 aged 28yrs. He was awarded the silver war badge B60566 He never married and lived his later life in Aunaskertine and later Bohereencael Killarney and died in 1950. He had a brother Mortimer Kelleher who was killed in WW1 in France. Both were born in Rathbeg Rathmore Co Kerry. I believe he was in the Irish Guards and perhaps later the Royal Munster fusiliers??. If anyone can help I would be most grateful. My email is Thank you. Helen

Reply to Brian Kenny.If you Google Marathon Marriage by M. F. Kenny you will be able to purchasean ineirtsteng book about at least some Kennys from Amazon.Also the County name Kilkenny ( in Irish Cill Chainnigh), of hurling fame, is derived from St Canneach or Canice. the name Cill Chainnigh translates as The Church of St Canice You could also go to Galway City, where you will find the great Kenny Art Gallery and bookshop, and the proprietor Tom Kenny and his brothers know a lot about history.You can order books on-line from them also, check their website.Your name in Irish is of course O’ Cionnaith, St Canice was an early ancestor of yours,maybe you could pray to him for guidance!!!Valentine Trodd
