Dunkerrin Fanning Family

I have been wondering if my Fanning family who I have traced as far back as Lissaroon in Drom and Inch Parish and who are buried in Ballycahill Cemetery near Thurles could be related to the Fanning family at Dunkerrin.

I have come up as a small DNA match with a direct descendant of William Fanning of Castleroan who married Ellen Eviston of Clonomocogue. My Fannings have a long association with the Evistons of Clonomocogue.

In the Tithe Applotment Books there are three Fannings in Castleroane in 1825:

William, James and Patrick Fanning.

In Grifiths ValuationĀ  about 1850 there is a Patrick Fanning, Philip and William Fanning at Castleroan Dunkerrin.

This is what I have so far on my Ancestry tree:
