  • Janet:

    Could you clarify what information you are seeking? Is 1835 their year of marriage? I don't see a marriage between a Bridget McEnroe and Michael Finnigan in Co. Sligo. There is a Michael Finnegan/Bridget Flynn couple in Templeboy who had eight children between 1826-1838.

    Not having any luck. I searched on Roots Ireland for all of Ireland and did not find a marriage record for a Michael Finnegan and Bridget McEnroe. Also did not find any baptismal records for children of the couple.

    We would need more information on Patrick Maloney (parents names at a minimum) before we could try to research him.

  • Many thanks anyway...perhaps it was another townland in Sligo.I researched census UK and it was Sligo and other indicators pointed that way too.Patrick Maloney I traced back to an area that I am very familiar with Moate near Keelogues Galway.Going back to my Michael Finnigan he was born Sligo came to an Irish quarter in Willenhall then moved to Yorkshire.Thank you again for your help.
