I'm wondering if there are any Brennans still living in Castlebar/Aglish. My 3x Great Grandfather was William Brennan, and was born about 1835 in Castlebar, the son of Robert (or William Robert) Brennan and Ellen Heffernan. He emigrated to Sydney, Australia in 1855 on the ship the 'Golden Era'. I know that his grandparents' names were William Robert Ross Brennan & Dorothy Clemmens. If anyone is related to him, I'd love to hear from you!

hi. I am looking to find any of my great grandfather's family from Castlebar. Martin Madden was born 1866, married Mary (no surname) around 1896/98 Annie was born 1898/99, Mary ( my grandmother ) was born 1900 in Derrycoosh, Cloonkeen, dates were taken from 1901 Cenus. I believe my great grandfather Martin died around 1905, some time after great grandmother Mary married a man with surname Pinnor & left for the U.K. As they are on the U.K. Cenus in 1911. Thank You. Ann.
