Could you tell me why you have Clogheen, Tipperary in the title of your message? Do you have a connection there rather than Ballinasloe? If so, could you please post your message here (Clogheen): http://www.irelandxo.com/group/shanrahan-tipperary
Please post as much information as you can about your ancestor. This will greatly help both me and the local community to answer your query.
Please make sure you link anyone else in your family who is interested in their Irish heritage to our site - and indeed anyone else you know of Irish heritage.
