Patrick T Hogan’s sister Bridget married Michael O’Sullivan of Cattaganstown. She is buried in Moyglass Cemetery. Her death was reported in the Clonmel Nationalist:

Bridget O'Sullivan nee Hogan Funeral Notice Clonmel Nationalist 11th July 1928c
Death Notice for Bridget O’Sullivan nee Hogan in the Clonmel Nationalist 11 July 1928

Mrs Ed Fanning of Shanbally was her sister Johanna  Mrs John Fanning of Clondoty Loughmore was her sister Mary. Mrs O’Donnell of Fethard would have been her aunt Johanna nee Sheehan and Mrs Fanning of Thurles was most likely her aunt Ellen nee Sheehan who was a shopkeeper and publican in Quarry St Thurles.

The Bridget Hogan who died in 1982 may well be the Bridget Hogan of Coolkip mentioned in the paper, probably the niece of the Bridget who died in 1928.

    .i wonder if we are related.i am john fanning grandson of michael fanning.his grave and that of my grandmother johanna and other family members are shown in your photos. the cooneys and moloughneys are part of my extended family.would be good to hear from you.regards john fanning

    1. Hi John,
      I don’t as yet know of a connection to my Fanning ancestors. I was in Ireland for a holiday and visited Moycarkey Cemetery looking for the graves of Hogan relations. I photographed any Fanning graves I came across. Let me know if you find a connection. So far the only relations in the Moycarkey area seem to be Edward Fanning and his wife Johanna Hogan. But going back further there may well be common ancestors.regards Kathleen

      1. hi kathleen.
        hogan is local name to the thurles area as you may know. my parents retired back to thurles and their neighbour was a michael. hogan of ballycurrane, cabra,thurles.there are fannings in queensland in towoomba and some in melbourne. sounds like any connection we may have might be a lot further back.regards john

  4. Just happened to Google “the origin of COOLKIP” as I have been trying to identify an old house that once existed roughly between 1885 & 1898 in my street & was known as COOLKIP HOUSE According to the Queensland POST Office Directories a number of owners/renters have been a Mr W S Smith (1887/8) a Mr Relton (1892) A Mrs Hannah Medland died at Coolkip House in 1892. & lastly a Mr Jonathan Harris was also a resident at Coolkip House in 1893/4 & by the way died there in September 1894 The name interests me & low & behold Coolkip appears in your family tree for the HOGAN family. Could you please tell me whether Coolkip is a (a) small Hamlet/ village in Co Tipperary or (b) is it a name of the family home belonging to the Hogan Family?
    Hoping you can help me with my query? Thanks. Geraint S Gregory, Brisbane, Queensland Australia. P.S (It certainly an interesting name )

    1. Hi Geraint,
      I too am fascinated by house names. Coolkip is a townland which is an area or administrative division in Ireland. Coolkip townland was 216 acres in size and in the Moykarkey Parish in North Tipperary,near Thurles. I looked up the Index to Townlands and you are in luck as this is the only Coolkip townland listed in Ireland. More than likely the original owners of this house came from Coolkip.
