Quite possible. Inchigeelagh is right near the border with Co.Kerry . She
may indeed have been from Co. Kerry, with the marriage taking place at the
nearest church. On the other hand, you must be careful in jumping to
conclusions with the abundance of similar and identical names. The surname
LEARY/O'LEARY is heavily concentrated in this area and their ancient
residence was near the town of Millstreet, Co.Cork.
