It has been said that the O’Connor Family Dromultan lived on the farm ‘Below the Church' beside Scartaglin Village before they settled at Dromultan. At Dromultan, it is thought that John O'Connor who Married Hanora Browne from Mullin Scartaglin is the first recorded member of our Dromultan O'Connor Family. There, John/Hanora had the following children - Daniel (B1852), David B1853, Edmond B1855, Elizabeth B1856, John B1858, Joanna B1859 and Hanora B1861. One of the boys (Daniel) died young and tragically when a shotgun discharged accidentally. He and a 'servant' lad had seen rabbits and then both ran to get a gun that was kept in a ditch. In the race the gun went off and one of the O'Connor boys got shot and died. The name Daniel ‘died’ at Dromultan also. Edmond is the Father of David Ned O'Connor who Married Kate 'Jim' O'Leary from Mount Scartaglin. David Ned and Kate 'Jim' O'Leary lived on the O'Leary Farm at Mount Scartaglin.
