In 1840, Richard was living at 1 The Crescent, Termon and working as a publican. According to the Ireland Valuations Office Book, Richard was renting was property, a note on the record describes it as, “A public house and bar. Main area all in pretty good repair, inside of dwelling not very well finished, no garden.”

Surname sometimes written as Feny, Feney, Feely, Felly and Feehily.

Note: Although I’m sure that Margaret and Richard were Marie Feeny’s parents, whether Marie was my 4 x great grandmother is speculation.
