Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 366. In Rutherford T., Manitoulin Dist., on a peninsula opposite George I. on the N shore of Georgian Bay and Hwy 637, 67 km SW of Hwy 69, 44 km SW of Sudbury.
  • In 1820 fur trader Etienne Augustin Robert de la Morandiere moved to the site, then known as Shebahonaning. He planted crops and imported cattle.
  • The remote settlement continued to grow despite the fact that until Hwy 637 was opened in 1962, the only access to the community was by water.
  • A post office was established as Shebahonaning in 1853, but the name was later changed to Killarney. Lord and Lady Dufferin visited the place in 1882, and she is said to have remarked that the rugged beauty of the area reminded her of Killarney, Ireland.
  • . It is believed that this remark accounts for the change of name.
