Hello,  my late Grandfather was born at 25 St.Claire’s Villas, Ballybrack as John Toole, although he used his father’s surname Davis. His parents were Mary Toole and Richard Davis.                       

I am trying to find my grandad’s baptism details but really struggling as I don’t know the area, or which church it would have been. Any help or advice greatly appreciated. 

 

Many thanks 

Louise
