http://www.cmcrp.net/Limerick/Landowner3.html......... Everyone check Danaher and Fitzgerald in this website.... Maurice and Denis Danaher.... and then Desmond and John Fitzgerald. This is the loughill woodcliffe tarbert Adare area of County Limerick just west of Limerick City. My Annie Eileen Danaher, my grandmother spoke of the fact that her family had Fitzgerald connections... so now I am wondering about that and the Priest and Nun factor in our Danher family mostly. Also Nora 'Nano' Danaher is from there too... but check out her nose... in the next photo... very pronounced like those young men in the army picture you see. I am supposing right now , there might be a family group in that area of Loughill.. with Denis, Maurice, maybe my john , can't be sure.. until we dig. Plus this priest here .. his grandfather was a Patrick Danaher....and Philip's brother... my family link I believe is patrick or james...john is a given but that could be maternal. So this is where I am at. Do we know how many sibs Hanna had in this family?
