Looking for Fallons in Castledaly, Scalp, Peterswell Galway

Hello thanks in advance I’m hoping you can help 

I’d appreciate any help tracking down family of Michael Fallon and Mary O’Brien.  I think that there are two brothers Patrick married to Julia Lally. The other brother is my great grandfather Thomas Joseph b. Feb 1859  and was in Boston by late 1880s 1890s and died 1919.  He married Mary Ellen Mahoney from Cork.  Not sure where US or Ireland they had 8 children. His death certificate listed his parents Michael and Mary O’Brien.  Anything you could tell me about them and confirm children Thomas, Patrick and any others.    Patrick was born 1864 married Julia Lally and went to Boston but returned and died in 1924 in Castledaly, Scalp, Peterswell, Galway.  Please let me know if there is any connections to Castledaly that you can find for these Fallon family members. 

Thank you,

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I searched on Roots Ireland and was not able to find a baptismal record for Thomas or Patrick. I did find a February 1895 church marriage record in Kilchreest for Patrick and Julia. There was no civil marriage record. I located a January 1896 civil birth record for their first child Bridget. See below. I assume they left for America soon after. I found Patrick's death record in 1924. Julia did not die until 1961. There is a daughter, Agnes Mulkerrins, shown as the informant. She lived in Lissadoill townland in Kilthomas civil parish.

  • I too am trying to find the Fallon family in Ireland.  I have that Eleanora Fallon married a James Turley and one of their children was James Turley who married Bridget Guinan and they had my grandfather John A. Turley.

    To get back to the Fallon family, I though I had found Eleanora's parents but when I checked the dates it would have been impossible since they were younger than their children.  And the same goes for their parents.  I am so confused having only been at this about a little over a year and having no help from any family members.  I have found the grandchildren of my grandfather's younger brother Michael Francis (Frank) but they haven't been any help either, lol.  I am retired so I have the most time to spend on research still I seem to have hit a brick wall.  I don't  know if I am related to any of the same Fallon's as Kim.  It is so hard when you really don't know what you are looking for.  I do know that my Turley side came from Galway (Clontuskert, Ballinasloe, Galway).

    Any help on where to look or search would be appreciated.

  • Hi Kathy,

    As you quer related to a different area of Galway it may be more appropriate to start a new message and assign to Clontuskert Parish.

    Link to James (Jacobus) Turley (Turly) birth in 1856
