Galvin/O'Donoghue of Solohead, Co Tipperary

Patrick Galvin (c1816-1891) and Catherine O'Donoghue lived in Drumwood townland, Solloghodmore (Solohead) civil parish, County Tipperary, Ireland during the 1820s, 30s and 40s. Solohead was probably Catherine's home parish and just as probably was not Patrick's. They had eight issue, six of whom emigrated Ireland with the widowed father in the late 1840s and settled first in Columbia County, New York, U.S.A. Four of the six, all married daughters, later migrated with their families to Dane County, Wisconsin. A seventh child, Patrick Galvin, emigrated Ireland for Australia.

Drumwood townland is near the western Tipperary border with County Limerick, approximately half-way between Cappawhite and Oola. Both Cappawhite and Oola should be shown on the map of Ireland in any typical world atlas.
