We will be in Ireland in June and like everyone else I would like to see where my Grandmothers family lived. When she moved to the states her name was listed as McShea. 1901 census has the family, living at House 7 in Cashell Upper, Bellavary Mayo. I don't know which is the street/road? district?. also would like to find the church or cemetary. The childrens baptism records say Cashel Parish ,Turlough Parke. Where I grew up a parish is our Church. Any help would be wonderful Thank you.

My grandmother was Catherine Carney dob about 1888 who had a sister Delia Carney dob about 1894. They both went to the states where Catherine married Bernard Clark (also from Ireland) in Philadelphia around 1920.Delia Carney returned to Ireland and later married John Fleming. Any info would be so helpful.

Seeking any information available for Mary Anne Walsh married Thomas Tunney in July 1828. I just viewed a transcription online from the National Library of Ireland and Ireland Roman Catholic Parish Marriages and I can't tell what Church this was from or any other info. Anything is appreciated. Thanks.
