Bernard O'Neill - of Ballygawley, Tyrone, Northern Ireland - died in August 1896 at the claimed age of 107.

This Ancestry profile was created for him, but I don't know how reliable the info is (supposedly, his mother lived to be c.111):

Or maybe even older....

am generally very sceptical of these 19th century Irish claims; there were 514 centenarians reported in the 1901 census, five times the number in 1990.
