The Pink Mahons– Descendants of:



And there were only two from Orange County Ca. Cheryl Moss said: 

“I took Janet and Jim Miles who came up from LA, Calif., out to the homestead of her great-great-grandfather Thomas who came from Ireland.  A few buildings remain, not in good shape after 190 years but Janet was able to feel the logs he hand cut to build his home.  It was very emotional for her and she was soooooo grateful.  The smile on her face, her laughter meant so very much to me”.  


The Yellow Mahons— Descendants of:

The only Mahon to compete in the Perth Kilt Run


So– do the Irish wear kilts? Though the origins of the Irish kilt continue to be a subject of debate, current evidence suggests that kilts originated in the Scottish Highlands and Isles and were worn by Irish nationalists from at least 1890 onwards and then cemented from the early 1900s as a symbol of Gaelic identity.

  1. Hello: I am told that I am connected to the Mahon clan, through my grandmother, Ann Trainor, who married Willian Francis Kerr. Can you fill in the gap? I believe there was a Mahon who lived on the Christie Lake Road. And Trainors lived on Paul Bradys farm.
