A Rhyming Invitation sent by John Philpot Curran (1750-1817) to Grandfather of Robert Carey, Skibbereen.

There is a reference to Ballymapatrick which may be Balllypatrick, South Tipperary.  The article was written in 1893 and it is possible that Richard Carey’s grandfather may have been from North Cork.
