Birth: 1872

Bridget Gallagher is the daughter of Michael and Catherine Kitty Haughey Gallagher. Michael Gallagher is the son of Michael and Catherine McDaid Gallagher my great great grandparents.

Bridget would be my first cousin 2x's removed. Bridget's Father Michael is the brother of my great grandfather Seamus Gallagher.

Bridget married John Mulreany around 1900. They had 5 daughters and one son.

Quote from my first cousin Kathleen Gallagher Schmook who came to NY in 1949 from Ireland. "They had a thriving Grocery, Bar and Drapery business. Mrs. Mulreany was a super businesswoman".

This info below from Bridget's grandson Patrick Mulreany. From an email sent to me in April, 2002.

My Grandmother died in 1970 and is buried in the Catholic graveyard in Frosses just inside the iron gate along with my brother Austin and my Grandfather John Mulreany. Her gravestone gives her age as 98 years but we think she was closer to 100. There is a question about her real age because all the birth records were distroyed in the Four Courts fire in Dublin during the war of independence of 1916.

From what I can tell my Grandmother came to the US when she was about 16 years old and was indentured to an aunt (we think) in Baltimore, MD. After there for awhile she got fed up with the hard work and menial pay so she ran away. She was befriended by a young girl and was taken in by the girls mother and was taught to read and write. When she was in her middle 20's she went back to Donegal. She married my Grandfather John Mulreany around 1900. She had five Daughters, May b. 1901,Kitty b. 1902, Bridget b. 1904?, Sofie b. 1906, Rose b. 1908, and one son Bennet (my father) born in 1910. They are all gone now, of course. My father was the last of the family to go (1996) and he is buried in Santa Clara, CA along with my mother Moira and brother John who died last year at age 54.

Best regards for now,
Padriag
