I, too, am interested in Harrington's from southwest County Cork. I have a couple of different lines from there, one being from Ballydonegan.
Tom - all of this in southwest County Cork around Skibbereen: in my family tree: Catherine Walsh, born 1859 from Skeagh Skibbereen married ca 1879 to Daniel Harrington of Kilkilleen, Skibbereen. Don't know how many children they had - I know about 5 - one nun, two priests, Ellen born in the 1890s who maried Timothy O'Regan of Gurteenroe, Skibbereen, and Catherine who married Thomas Murphy of Leap, Co Cork.

Do you see any connections here?

Hi Barbara - I don't see any connection with mine. My great -great grandparents were Patrick Harrington who married Mary Harrington in Ballydonegon in 1845. Mary was the daughter of Daniel Harrington and Ellen Kelly. Patrick and Mary emigrated to America in 1862.

Tom - I also have an Ellen Minihane, born 1843 in Ballyally, Skibbereen, who married Denis Harrington, from the Skibbereen area in southwest County Cork. They married in Skibbereen in the 1860s. They emigrated to San Francisco after their marriage and were not heard from.

Where is Ballydonegon? Nearest large town?

St. Louis, MO
Hi Barbara,

I see I msispelled Ballydonegan. It isn't really close to any larger towns. A search on Google maps shows it well. It is right on the southwest coast of County Cork.
