Hello Sarah,

My GGGrandfather was Bartholomew O'Shea... He married a woman with the maiden name Clifford. His daughter Catherine is my GGrandmother. I know he had at least one son Michael B. O'Shea who was a Merchant Tailor in Cahirciveen, Kerry. I believe other members of this family moved along to San Francisco following their arrival in Boston..

Curraghmore are Townlands, there is both East & West. In the Parish of Currans, Poor Law Union of Killarney

Ballinskelligs was a townland in the Parish of Prior, in the
Poor Law Union of Cahersiveen.

A poor law union was an administritive area no more than 12 mi. from name city and would include any Parish's, townlands, villages within that area.

There are too many 395 O'Shea's in Kerry, and 75 of them in the Killarney area but only 43 in the Cahirciveen area.
Be proactive addresses are sufficient for mail delivery, no postal code's required. As there are 43, you can send to just obvious males. I would send at least 10, if not more. Stamps are pretty reasonable. Also if you change your email change it on Ancestry as well as no point someone responding but not being able to get in touch.

In the 1881 Commercial Directory is a Bartholowmew
OShea of Cahirciveen who is a Tailor
others mentioned:
Bridgeet OShea china dealer
Jeremiagh OShea, grocery

Church records for Kerry:

If this is the right Bartholomew his children are probably in the civil registration 1864+.

Without an age just guessing and given examples has civil registration from 1864 that go to about 1950's some who may still be living

here are some examples only father's all Bartholomew OShea:

Mary 1868 mo: Hanoria Casey
Thomas 1868 Mo: Mary McGillicuddy
Mary 1871 Mo: Mary Mangan
John 1871 Mo: Johanna Shea
Mary 1872 Mo:Ellen Sullivan
Mary 1874 Mo: Joan Foley

1901/1911 Census:
I didn't find a Bartholomew in 1901 census. Found just 1 but in Limerick, the only in Ireland!! Also not born Kerry.
