Mulvihill

The Mulvihills held Knockanira, parish of Killone, barony of Islands, county Clare, from the Earls of Thomond from at least the beginning of the 18th century. Moland’s survey shows Knockanira had a good thatched house in 1703. O’Hart gives a brief pedigree of the family and refers to Daniel O’Mulvihill of Knockanira who had five sons, three of whom were doctors. Daniel died in 1820 and his eldest son in 1847 and the family’s association with Knockanira ceased. Power writes that the family helped organize relief during the Famine.
