    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I checked on the subscription site Roots Ireland and there were no Catherine Cosgrove/Cosgrave baptismal records in Rathdrum around 1832. The earliest was in 1846 and the father was Patrick. I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland and located the record below in Dunlavin just to the northwest of Rathdrum. Possible record for your Catherine?
