THE INFO I HAVE IS GLEENED FROM BIRTHS OF HIS CHILDREN. ONE OF WHOM WAS MY GRANDFATHER. THE CHILDREN ARE REGISTERED IN THE PARISH OF EGLISH KILLYON BIRR CO OFFALY IRELAND.
OFFALY CIVIL BIRTHS RECORDED RATHGIBBON. KIERAN DOOLY MARRIED MARY TOOHER IN EGLISH PARISH 1861/10/01.
CHURCH BAPTISMAL RECORDS ARE AVAILABLE ON ROOTS IRELAND.
I ALSO FOUND INFORMATION ON IRELAND CIVIL REGISTRATION INDEXES. I FOUND IN WILLS 1908 KIERAN DOOLEY DECEASED 1883 MONEY PAID TO MARY TOOHER DOOLEY HIS WIDOW. IN 1909 MY GRANDFATHER SAILED TO THE AMERICA.
I ALSO HAD GREAT LUCK WITH IRELAND XO.
THE PARISH OF DRUMCULLEN/EGLISH THE OLD CEMETARY HAS A DOOLEY MARKER AND I WAS ABLE TO CONTACT COUSINS LIVING IN THE AREA.
THERE IS A VERY OLD MARKER THAT PERSON IN THE CO. OFFALY HERITAGE CENTER LTD LED ME TO BELIEVE WAS OF KIERAN DOOLEY ....OROGIONALY FROM CLONKELLY...I AM UNABLE TO VERIFY THAT.

Hi Remy and hello again Martha!
I just discovered your conversation when I googled Kieran Dooley of Clonkelly.
Remy, I'm afraid I don't have any information about a Kieran who died 1830 - but I am very interested. If you could provide some more information (his children, their spouses, witnesses to the weddings, names of children and their godparents, etc) we, or other volunteers at Ireland XO might be able to help Martha has outlined her own connection with the name Kieran Dooley in this place and I've begun assembling information about that particular name - so far, that includes records in American and Australia, as well as Ireland.
As Martha will remember, I have Dooley ancestry of my own in this parish and recently I've begun work on a Dooley family in Dublin. They all overlap with my own which prompted my interest. These people were the children of Kieran Dooley and Catherine Fleury (in the record books as Fury), they were all baptised in Eglish parish following their marriage in the same place in 1838. I have been unable to find a death record for the Kieran Dooley of Clonkelly who interests me but an 1877 notice of his daughter Maria's marriage indicates that he ("late Kieran Dooley of Clonkelly") was already dead by then.
Martha, in the meantime, the old marker for Kieran Dooley of Clonkelly - was this in the old cemetery in Eglish or in Drumcullen, or was it in Clonoghill?

The grave marker you refer to is in the old Eglish churchyard and was placed by the Dooley grandchildren and has Kieran and Mary (Tooher) mentioned. There is another Dooley grave marker there in Eglish that has Margaret and James and several other names along with the name a priest and two nuns.
If I can figure out how to enclose those photos I will.
There is a Dooley grave marker that is very old and other than the name Kieran Dooley the other information is illegible.
To the best of my knowledge
Kieran Dooley born about 1840 married Mary Tooher 1 Jan 1861 and died 3 Jan 1883.
Mary Tooher born 3 Aug 1843 married Kieran Dooley 1 Jan 1861 and died 30 October 1915
the children and Baptismal dates are
James p 1866
John Eugene 1869
Thomas Joseph 1878
I hope this is of some use to you.
Again I will attempt to upload the photos.
