Colleen Whelan (Finucane)
My G Grandparents were James Finucane and Molly (Mary) Diggins. of Lissaniska. They were married in 1884 and had four children, Margaret, Mary, James (my grandfather) and William. I found all the Finucanes on the farm in Beenanasapug. However, I cannot find where Molly Diggins was buried. She was born around 1864 in Moybella and died before 1901 at an early age. I have searched most of the church yards throughout Kerry to no avail. Most of the Finucanes were buried in the Galey Churchyard, but Mary is not. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
