Hi, looking for info on my great great grandfathers Martin Colliton and wife Mary, and Patrick Brennan and wife Mary, all married around 1830-40 in Castlecomer, Kilkenny, and their children John Colliton born around 1840 and  Catherine Brennan born around 1840, Kilkenny. They came to Boston and were married in 1863. Thank you

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    The subscription site Roots Ireland has some records in the Clough RC parish which may be connected to your families. Clough is the RC parish just to the north of Castlecomer. The transcription of the 1840 baptismal record for the Colliton did not show a name for the child presumably the entry was unclear. I did not find a marriage record for a Patrick Brennan to a Mary Connors.
