Two sisters Bridget Kavanagh and Mary Curran lived in the same house for many years.  Bridget had two sons, Patty and Tommy Kavanagh.  Mary had a large family.  One son, Joe Curran inherited his uncle’s farm in Clahane, Ventry.  Tommy, who was a post man, sold the house to Siobháin O’Connor who in turn sold it to the Harbour Master and his wife, Brian and Brenda Farrell, in 1993.
