Cornelius Kelly at Dualla, Tipperary

According to Griffith's Valuation record my 3rd great-grandfather, Cornelius aka Con or Connor KELLY, was leasing house, office and land on 6 acres, 2 roods and 9 perches, from Captain Matthew Pennefather at Fussough, Dualla, Tipperary in 1850.  Map reference number 8.

Property numbers 1 to 11 were all leased from the estate of Captain M Pennefather.

The land lease cost 6 pounds 9 shillings and the buildings cost 1 pound 4 shillings, a total of 7 pounds 13 shillings.

In 1851, Notice of the sale of RENTAL of PORTIONS OF THE UNSETTLED ESTATES of MATHEW PENNEFATHER, ESQ., situate in the County of Tipperary To Be SOLD BY AUCTION

In this document there were details for the 'Late Cornelius Kelly'

His land being classed as 'Yearly Tenancy, terminable 1st November in each year'.

Just past the Horse and Hound Pub is the section of land he leased until 1851.

Currently situated on that land is the Tir Na Nog Bed and Breakfast.

In Irish mythology, Tír na nÓg or Tír na hÓige is one of the names for the Celtic Otherworld, or perhaps for a part of it. 

Tír na nÓg is best known from the tale of Oisín and Niamh.

I have not yet found when his wife Mary KELLY  nee Moloughny/Mulloughney died.

Searching for the death of Mary KELLY in Ireland is like looking for a needle in a haystack!
