This category contains information and records about the Fanning families from Thurles Co Tipperary. Related families from other parts of Ireland and general Irish historical background are also included here.
Thomas Fanning was born about 1825 and died 1898 in Thurles Co Tipperary Ireland. He was a grocer in New St Thurles and his wife was Anastasia. He is related to my family but as yet I have been unable to work out the exact relationship. Any help much appreciated.
This memorial card was sent to me by the granddaughter of Bridget Mullaney nee Fanning (c1858-1935). Bridget was the daughter of Catherine Ryan and Michael Fanning of Lissaroon. Michael Fanning was a first cousin of my gggrandfather William Patrick Fanning.
In her letter Delia believes this Thomas Fanning was a first cousin of her grandmother Bridget Mullany’s and also a granduncle of Archbishop O’Donnell of Brisbane.
Archbishop O’Donnell is related to Sarah Sheehan nee Fanning my gggrandfather’s sister. The letter printed in this post outlines the relationship between the O’Donnells and Sheehans.
If he is a granduncle of Archbishop O’Donnell then he is Sarah’s and William Patrick’s brother Thomas. But I have no record of there being a brother Thomas from the Parish birth records for Edmond Fanning and Judy Darmody from 1809-1829.
Given that he was born about 1825 he looks to be too old to be a first cousin of Bridget Mullany nee Fanning.
It is possible that he was a son of William Fanning and Hanera Cormick, as they most likely had more than three children.
Wm Fannin and Sarah Ryan likewise probably had more children, so there are other Fanning lines untraced out there that Thomas could have belonged to.
In this post there is a descendant report for William Fannin to three generations.
I found one marriage record for a Thomas Fanning and an Anastasia which seems to fit with the information I have so far. Her name was entered as Anto. The groom’s father William was listed as deceased on the record.
At first I was skeptical because Ballyduff townland listed in the Alphabetical Index to The Townlands and Towns of Ireland only has a Ballyduff in Dorrha Parish a long way from Thurles. But googgling Ballyduff I discovered a Ballyduff which is in the right area, 8.6 km from Thurles and 3.9kms from Moyne Village.
I also came across some information on Ballyduff as an alternative townland name in the Parish of Inshyofogerty in the Civil Survey 1654-1656 . Inshyofogerty being an old name for Inch Parish. This would certainly fit with Thomas being a related Fanning.
Shanballyduff in Rahelty Parish was also shortened to Ballyduff in records.
The William O’Connell who was a witness is most probably Thomas’ brother in law, being married to Johanna Fanning.
Civil Death Record for Thomas Fanning c 1825-1898 Thurles Co Tipperary Ireland
On the Co Tipperary Census for 1901 there is an Anastasia Fanning (spelt as Faning) living at 24 New Street, widow and grocer, living in what is described as a provisions store. I think this is the wife of Thomas.
Recently I came across a list of relatives attending a Fanning related funeral.
Michael O’Connell was the son of William O’Connell and Judy (Johanna) Fanning of Lissaroon. She was my ggggrandfather’s first cousin. In the list of attendees there is a Mrs Thomas Fanning senior and a Mrs Thomas Fanning jun both of Thurles and relatives of the deceased.
The younger Mrs Thomas Fanning would have been Ellen Fanning nee Sheehan and in 1899 she would have been 43 years old. She was a shopkeeper/publican in Quarry St Thurles.
The older Mrs Thomas Fanning would have been Anastasia Fanning nee Kirwin who was a shopkeeper in New St (now Parnell St) and she would have been 79 at the time of the funeral of Michael O’Connell. This is further evidence of a close link to the Lisaroon Fanning family. It is very probable that the above Thomas Fanning was the son of William Fannin and Honora Cormack of Lisaroon.
Sarah Fanning born 1816 was my gggrandfather’s sister.
After a puzzling lack of DNA matches with a known Sheehan descendant I checked Sarah’s Baptism record and discovered the priest had placed a cross next to the entry. This usually meant the priest did not believe the father married to the mother was actually the father of this child. Sarah’s brother Patrick’s entry also had a cross.
Sarah Sheehan is buried in St Mary’s Church graveyard Thurles Co Tipperary. She and her husband John Sheehan had a grocery/pub in Quarry St Thurles.
Quarry St was later renamed Mitchel St. Quarry St ran parallel to Pike St which was renamed Kickham St. The two streets were linked together by Lime Kiln Lane later called Ikerrin Rd. Pudding Lane also known as Jail St is now known as O’Donvan Rossa St. Quarry, where Sarah Sheehan lived, refers to a small area east of the town of Thurles. It was also known locally as The Pike.
St Mary’s Protestant Church was erected in 1820. The original entrance to the church was in Lime Kiln Lane. Both Protestant and Catholics were buried in St Mary’s graveyard.
Below is the inscription on the grave:
Erected by Sarah Sheehan of Thurles in memory of her beloved husband John Sheehan who died 3rd August 1881 aged 66 years. Also to the memory of their dearly beloved daughter Sarah Sheehan who died on the 31st May 1886 in the 24th year of her age sincerely regretted Here also are deposited the remains of the above Mrs Sarah Sheehan who died 10th Oct 1888 aged 72 years Also Mary Ellen Ryan nee O’Donnell died 21st Dec 1916 aged 34 years.
The Sheehan gravestone has been updated and Johanna O’Donnell nee Sheehan added.
James Dwyer was married to Ellen Sheehan, daughter of Sarah Sheehan nee Fanning, sister of William Patrick Fanning, my great great grandfather. (Sarah and Sally are used for each other.) She would have been his niece.
James Dwyer and Ellen Sheehan were married in Thurles Parish on 23/01/1883. He was a shopkeeper and his father William a farmer. Ellen’s father John Sheehan was a shopkeeper and her address is given as Quarry St Thurles. James Dwyer lived in Main St Thurles. Witnesses were Michael Dwyer and Sarah Sheehan. James Dwyer died young of Phthisis (consumption or tuberculosis), after being ill for four months. (The death record has him being 30 at time of death.)
A few years later Ellen married her second cousin, Tom Fanning of Clondoty, Loughmore. They were married on 1/02/1891. Thomas Fanning was a farmer and Ellen Dwyer nee Sheehan a shopkeeper at 112 Quarry St Thurles. Witnesses were Michael Fanning and Ellen’s sister, Josie Hogan.
Tom Fanning died in 1897 and is buried in Loughmore Cemetery. Ellen is listed on the 1901 Census at Quarry St Thurles as a grocer. She is age 45. In the household there are her nieces Sarah Hogan age 14 and at school, Josephine Hogan age 24 and a scholar and Mary O’Donnell age 20 and also a scholar. She has a son William Fanning aged 6. On the 1911 Census she is living with a servant who is a shop assistant. Ellen is described as a widow with one living child and her marriage as lasting five years.
Thomas Dwyer, aged 21 years, of Bouladuff Co Tipperary Ireland was shot dead by members of the R.I.C., the Black & Tans, on the morning of March 29 1920. His mother was Catherine Fanning of Lissaroon.
I was told by a relation that the family was so shattered by his murder that it was not spoken of for 40 years.
Bouladuff, also known as Inch and The Ragg is a village 5 miles outside of Thurles and 3 miles from Borrisoleigh.
In March of 1920 Constable Heany was shot in The Ragg and later died.
It is hard not to think that this death of the constable was not connected to the murder of Thomas Dwyer on 29 Mar the same year. The murder of Thomas Dwyer was reported in The Irish Times, March 30 1920:
“Our Thurles Correspondent telegraphed as follows last night- Bouladuff, a quiet little village four miles from Thurles, commonly known as The Ragg, was the scene of a terrible murder last night. The trouble started about 3.30. A group of men stood in the village street, when suddenly shots rang out, and the police charged and dispersed the people.
For some hours afterwards all was quiet.
At 12.30 five men knocked at the house of Thomas Dwyer, part of whose premises consist of a shop. Dwyer’s sister, Mrs Delaney, heard the knocking, and got up and asked-“Who is there?” “Friends” was the reply. “Is Tom inside?”. She suspected something was afoot, and told them through the keyhole that Tom was not in. They replied that they knew that he was, and that they would break in the door if it was not opened quickly.
Mrs Delaney, when interviewed to-day, said that she was terribly frightened. Her brother was in bed but a short time, having remained outside as he had a presentiment that he would be shot. He told them earlier the day that he feared that his end was near. She went to his room and told him about the men at the door. Returning to the door which the men were kicking, she had just turned the key when the five men burst in. Mrs Delaney screamed at their appearance. They wore false beards and masks, and they carried rifles. Brushing her roughly into the kitchen, one man covered her with a rifle, while the other four passed towards the room where her brother Thomas lay. The doomed man appeared at the door wearing his pants, with a lighted candle in his hand. The men appeared to know their man quite well, for the moment they got a glimpse of him they fired.
Dwyer fell mortally wounded, pierced by two bullets, one of which smashed the candlestick in two. While he lay on the ground one of the assassins said “Has he enough?” and another replied “Give him another,” so another shot was fired into the body. Dwyer gave a moan, and the murderers made off, first asking Mrs Delaney “Is there anybody else to be shot here.” They slammed the door, and while they were on the roadway outside the house they fired several shots apparently at random.
The screams of Mrs Delaney aroused the neighbours, who ran for a priest and a doctor. Father Hayes arrived in time to administer the last rites of the Church. Dr Power, Borrisoleigh, also came, and did all that he could, but Dwyer expired an hour after the shooting. Two men were seen running from the back of Dwyer’s house across the fields after the murder.”
An inquest was held and here is part of what was written in The Irish Times on March 31, 1920:
“The town of Thurles was quiet today, but evidence of recent disturbances were apparent in the shattered windows of a number of shops, and in the display of shutters as tokens of mourning for the young man, Thomas Dwyer, who met his death under such mysterious circumstances at Bouladuff……..The Ragg is a village containing not more than a dozen houses, three of which are licensed. It will be recalled that the hamlet came under public notice some weeks ago through the murder of a policeman named Heanue there on the 4th March. It was stated in evidence at the inquest on Constable Heanue that the men who fired the shots were absolute strangers to the locality. Bouladuff is on the main road between Thurles and Borrisoleigh, three miles from the latter town. The nearest police station to the village is Dovea, about a mile distant. Dwyer was a young man, about 21 years of age, and is described as having been industrious in his habits, and popular in the locality. The only other occupants of the house at the time that he was shot by the raiders were his widowed sister, Mrs Delaney, and her little daughter, and an invalid uncle………There are about 100 additional police on duty in Thurles to-night, those in the streets carrying carbines.”
Tom Dwyer was buried in Drom or Drum old Catholic Cemetery, Co Tipperary.
The funeral was reported in The Irish Times on April 1, 1920:
“Business was entirely suspended in the town of Thurles and the surrounding towns and villages today. All the shops in Thurles were closed, including the licensed houses, and a quiet, if anything, even more pronounced than that of the Sabbath prevailed. The suspension of business was intended as a demonstration of sympathy with the family of Thomas Dwyer, the young man who was shot dead at Bouladuff in the small hours of Monday morning last.
The funeral took place from the Roman Catholic Church at Inch, close to Bouladuff, at noon to-day. From an early hour a long string of vehicular and pedestrian traffic was proceeding along the six miles of highway between Thurles and Inch. Every single available vehicle in Thurles was pressed into service for the occasion. The direction of traffic, and of the day’s proceedings generally seemed to be in the hands of the Sein Fein Volunteers. Many of these Volunteers were in uniform, and wore belts and bandoliers, and haversacks. Squads of men in military formation marched along the road to Inch, and crowds of Volunteers were across the roadway at the approaches to Bouladuff. There was not a single policeman to be seen in the village or in its vicinity. At least two thousand Volunteers from all parts of North Tipperary and from further afield were concentrated at the scene. The number of vehicles, which came to participate in the funeral procession-traps, side-cars, and soforth-approached, if did not exceed, a thousand.
Shortly after noon the funeral procession started from Inch Church on its way to the cemetery at Drom, six miles away. Rain fell heavily for the most part of the journey. The procession was headed by a single company of the Irish Volunteers, most of them in uniform. On either side of the hearse marched a singlr file of Volunteers, while behind the hearse came three mourning coaches containing the chief mourners. There then marched a number of Irish Volunteer contingents, Sinn Fein Clubs, representativesof the Transport Workers’ Union, a party of young women of the Cumana na uBan, and a contingent of demobilised soldiers form the Thurles district. None of the Volunteers marching in the procession displayed any arms.
On its way to the cemetery the procession passed Dovea Police Barrack, but no demonstration of any kind was made. The doors of the barrack were closed, and the police remained inside while the cortege was passing. When the procession was about half-way on the road between Inch and Drom a Volunteer cyclist rode up to the leaders with the intelligence that a large party of military and police had occupied the Drom Cemeterty and its immediate vicinity. The leaders, however, decided to proceed on their way, and no alteration was made in the order of the procession. It appears that about an hour before the procession was due to arrive at Drom several military lorries drew up outside the cemetery. At the time a contingent of Volunteers was standing in the roadway apparently for the purpose of regulating the traffic when the funeral arrived. There were about one hundred soldiers and policemen, the former belonging to the Northampton Regiment, and the latter being in charge of District Inspector Wilson, Nenagh. The soldiers carried full military equipment, and the police were armed with carbines. This party entered the cemetery and took up various positions in parts of it, the military falling into line along the wall of the graveyard, and a party of police standing a short distance from the open grave. No incidents of an untoward nature occurred, and, though evidences of excitement were visible among the crowd, the impression commonly prevailed that the presence of the soldiers and police was for the purpose of preventing the firing of a volley over the grave, as had been done at the funeral of Mr. McCarthy on Monday last. No volley was fired, though it was subsequently stated that when, at the termination of the religious ceremony at the graveside, the military and the police had returned to Templemore, a party of Volunteers fired a volley over the grave. The prayers at the graveside were recited by Rev. Father Finn, and a Volunteer bugler sounded the “Last Post”. An officer of the Irish Volunteers delivered an oration at the graveside. After the funeral the crowd quietly dispersed.”
The Irish Times reported on March 31 1920:
Nenagh Guardian July 31 1920:
THE RAGG PUBLICHOUSE LOOTED
The Ragg, Thurles, was the scene of another outbreak by police on Saturday.
Four huge motor lorries filled with armed police left Thurles on Saturday at 6 p.m., cheering and discharging shots as they passed through the streets. They started from the police barrack, having it is stated come from Limerick on transfer back to Belfast via Dublin. They continued discharging shots as they dashed along, passing Killinan cemetery and Ballinashow. Arriving at Bouladuff, known as The Ragg, the four lorries halted at Dwyer’s public house, into which they rushed, brushed the attendant aside, and getting behind the counter each man helped himself to as much drink as he pleased. A quantity was consumed on the premises, and a great deal more was transferred to the lorries and not paid for.
When this had been done the party returned to the house, knocked all remaining bottles off the shelves with their rifles and then fired volley after volley for a considerable time through the ceiling.
After making the place a complete scene of wreckage they proceeded on their journey cheering. The only persons present at the time were an invalid man and his niece, Mrs Delaney, sister of the late Thomas Dwyer, the victim of The Ragg tragedy. The house has been repeatedly fired into since the shooting of Thomas Dwyer, and his sisters were so terrified as to leave the house derelict for some time, until they received an assurance from the authorities that they would receive no further molestation.
In the recently released witness accounts in the Bureau of Military History James Leahy of Nenagh, an active IRA member, describes what was happening with the Black and Tans and Police in and around Thurles in 1920. Leahy recounts the murder of Tom Dwyer and the events that followed.
Kathleen Dwyer (Mary Cath Dwyer) 1893-1952 was present the night of Thomas Dwyer’s murder. She was married to Mathew Joseph Delaney. He died in 1919. In 1921 Kathleen, as she was known as, married Denis Bannon. She and Denis ran the Post Office/Pub at Bouladuff.

THOMAS FANNING date of birth 28/2/1864 Address: Skehane. Parish/District of Littleton. Father: MARTIN FANNING. Mother: MARY MAHER. Sponsor was Martin Fanning, his father. I think Thomas Fanning is the father of John Fanning (22/10/1903-01/01/1982) the Irish Fianna Fail politician and farmer, whose birth record is below. I have been told that he is not related to my Fanning family.
More information about this family: Apparently DNA tests show that these Fannings are in the Edmund Fanning lineage. This Edmund Fanning emigrated to America in 1853. My ancestors show the same lineage. So we are related but I have no idea how far back. I was told by my fourth cousin in Ireland that all the Fannings around Thurles are descendants of William Fannin and Sarah Ryan of Lissaroon. Whether this is true I don’t know.
The above Martin Fanning came to live in Skehanna, Twomileborris and married Mary Maher. One of his sons Martin who married Mary Ann Duggan (daughter of Michael Duggan) emigrated to America and lived first in Philadelphia and then Chicago. I do have a bit more info if anyone is interested.
I have birth dates for Martin 22 Feb 1857, Joseph 14 Sept 1860, William and Michael 8 Sept 1867, James 31 July 1854, Ned, no date, but he stayed in Coolcroo and John was said to have immigrated to US. These are all sons of Martin and Mary Fanning nee Maher. These names and dates need checking.
JOHN FANNING date of birth 22/10/1903 Address: Borris. Parish/District of Littleton. Father is THOMAS FANNING and mother is MARGARET FOGARTY. Sponsor was his father Thomas Fanning. John Fanning was a farmer and a Fianna Fail politician for North Tipperary. He was first elected in 1951 and re-elected at every successive general election until he retired from politics in 1969. He died 1/1/1982.
The wedding of Mr John Fanning T.D., and Miss Josephine O’Dwyer was reported in The Irish Times on Friday Sept 28, 1956. I am assuming it is John Fanning the politician:
“The wedding took place at Holy Cross Parish Church,Thurles, of Mr John Fanning T.D., son of Mrs and the late Mr Thomas Fanning, Skehane, Twomileborris, Thurles and Miss Josephine O’Dwyer, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Philip O’Dwyer, Whitefield, Holy Cross. Best man was Mr William Fanning, brother of the groom, and the bridesmaid was Miss Peggy O’Dwyer, sister of the bride. The ceremony was performed by the Very Reverend P.Harney, PP., Holy Cross, assisted by the Very Reverend William Breen, P.P., Moycarkey; the Reverend D.O’Meara, C.C.,Moycarkey; the Reverend J.Russell, C.C. and the Reverend R. Fitzgerald, C.C., Kilcommon; the Reverend F.Kilnane, C.C., Holy Cross; the Reverend T. O’Keeffe, C.C., Templetuohy; the Reverend T. O’Dwyer, O.M.I., Australia; the Reverend T.Stakelum, S.C.A., and Reverend M. O’Dwyer, Maynooth Mission to China. The reception took place in Hayes Hotel, Thurles and the honeymoon is being spent in the west of Ireland.”
