    Yes, and did it himself after his father died? I think James is the only Killeen male there in the 1911 apart from Tim - and James was a visitor.

      I wonder if Pat Divett did all the heavy/dirty work.

        But who ran the farm after Tim's death?

          Did the Irish 1921 censuses survive?

          Iím looking forward to ours becoming available in early 2022. Lots of loose ends to tie up. I think they contain details of employers as well as occupations.

            The situation with Ireland seems to be, no 1921 census.

                That should have been Davitt or Devitt, not Divett.

                The servant Patt Devitt, 17, in 1901 was clearly not the tenant Patrick Davitt, 66, in 1911. Perhaps his son? Here are the Davitts in 1911.

                I imagine John and Michael worked for the Killeens.

                  This is an aerial map of the townland of Cloonfeagh (Cloonfeigh, Clonfeigh). The countryside for miles around is as sparsely populated as this, and many of the houses that do exist are modern.

                  I imagine that one of the three farms(?) visible is where the Killeenís lived. Iíve been happily wandering around the nearby lanes on streetmap but I canít get up the farm tracks to see if there are any old houses on them. As I think I mentioned elsewhere, there are still Killeens in the area.

                    This shows the boundary of Cloonfeagh Townland which, with a bit of effort can be related to the aerial view.

                      Yes it seems a very nice piece of countryside and I shouldn't wonder if the lanes weren't in demand for filming period dramas.

                        I wonder where Tim was buried? Michael was interred in Kilmaley burial ground.

                        Here are a couple of his obituaries. It’s interesting that a Dr Frost and a J. Frost (coroner) were among the mourners. Frost was Tim’s mother’s maiden name and she came from Sixmilebridge, near Kilcornan.

                          No mention of the widow at the funeral. I have looked for Mary's death but to no avail.

                            FMP only has the Clare Journal to 1899. Itís quite likely that Timís obituary was also printed in there.

                              Looks like it was a men only affair.

                                If these are the right Frosts, Mary came from a medical family.
