Thank you very much for your help, I am glad it is not just me who is flumoxed by Fergus! I have attached the one other record that mentions a "Fergus McInerney" although I dont really udnerstand it or what it is, it came up under the 1851 cenus search for Bridget Loughrey's parents, and its almost like they've gone back and added the note of her married address to it?
The address mentioned for Bridget Loughery is "Mrs Fergus McInerney" at the very same Hollymount farm which the remaining generations of family continued to live at until my grandad's emmigration to England. However I cant find a record of their marriage anywhere.
Do the records I've just attached throw up any more ideas!? Your help is very appreciated!

Wow thank you Miriam I was really confused as to what that document was so its great to know exactly what it is and what is for! Currently waiting for my DNA results to come through so hoping that will help me confirm alot of queries in the tree instead which is great. Fergus was one brick wall.... now over to the Country Clare message boards for my other brick wall - another ggg of mine who was also a rural farmer!

Whilst searching for more on Fergus of Hollymount -Kilthomas/Peterswell, my searches have thrown up "Fardy" McInerney. The are more dog registries and a court documents that refer to him as Fardy or Thardy I believe (attached). From other forums and looking at other census' it does appear Fardy is a version of Fergus so it looks like we have the same person who went by either Fergus/Fardy.
A little bit more digging and I have found the following grave stone whereby his father Denis of Hollymount had the grave arrnaged for his son "Fardy" - this again backs up the point that Fardy/Fergus must have dies between 1878 (last dog registry) and 1901 (where is wife is then widowed with her 2 daughters on the census) - as death records of Denis McInerney of Hollymount show he died after his son around 1905 mark:
So whilst we know Fergus/Fardy certainly existed - I still cant find any SOLID records by way of birth/baptism/marriage/death at all!!
My next step is looking into the records of Bridget's sister Mary to see if she has any mention of her father anywhere.

Sorry yes it does say plot with him not for him - and thats brilliant I never would have thought to search Corrow instead. Funnily enough on the same grave record there is a Corrow grave for John Corrow born abt 1792 by his wife Catherine - could these be thre parents of Mary Currow (mistranscribed Corrow) and the Fergus Corrow you sent me the link to? So Mary and Denis would have essentially named their son Fardy/Fergus McInerney after Mary's brother Fergus Corrow?

Ignore me! Just saw I've totally misread the grave tracription wrong again (35 degrees here is clearly not helping!)
So her husband John actually died aged 60 in 1894. So looks like my Mary Currow (Corrow) would have been sister to John Corrow mentioned at the same graveyard by his wife Catherine. Looks like the link to Fergus' Corrow marriage cert that you sent me was her nehpew like you say, from another brother of hers, a Pattrick Corrow, which would make sense as their father was of course Pattrick Corrow as we know from the McInerney grave at the same graveyard.
Phew - think thats it!
