Hi,

I'm researching 3rd great grandparents.  Michael Barrett and Mary Guilfoyle were married in Caher 31 January 1839 in the Catholic church.  (https://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000632136#page/16/mode/1up)  The record appears to indicate the parties are from "Kafaun" which in the record looks like it might be a townland, but I can find no such place. 

Does anyone have any idea what place this might be referring to?  It looks like there are 3 or 4 priests performing marriages at that time and place, and G. F. Long seems to be the only one who includes the townland detail.  But I can't recognize that townland.  It is possible it no longer exists by that name.

Thanks,
Mary

  • Hi Mary

    I looked up the record and it looks like Rafane to me, which is a townland outside Cahir.  Hope this helps.
