GALLAGHER - KEARNEY County Tyrone to New Zealand 1920s

Journal by ngairedith

I am seeking ANY information on Patrick (Patsy) Gallagher born about 1888 in Ireland
- He married Kathleen KEARNEY around 1923 in New Zealand.

They emigrated on different ships as she was determined to marry him and so followed him to New Zealand

Would really like to know on which ships they travelled and in what years

Kathleen was born around 1896 in Ireland and died 30-8-1941 in Wellington.
- Both are buried in Karori Cemetery

Believed they went to New Zealand in the early 1900s or even late 1890s. They lived in Christchurch before moving to Wellington

- Their two children Catherine (Peggy) and Charles (Carl) were born in the South Island - Peggy in Reefton and Carl in Christchurch but spent their youth onwards in the Wellington and Wairarapa areas

Peggy married Gerald Irvine
Carl married Ngaire Peck

Patrick was killed on Christmas Eve 1948 while crossing the railway line in the Hutt or Wellington and was hit by a train

Kathleen had died aged 45, 7 years previously

So far the siblings I have of Paddy's are:

Sara "Cis" Gallagher
- born about 1886 in County Tyrone

Catherine (Peg) Irvine was my grandmother. I can try and put you in touch with somebody in my family who may know some of the information which you are after.
