Michael Linahan & Agnes Christie Croagh Clogh Rathkeale Limerick

My first post although been lurking for a while ;-)

I wonder if any one can provide further info on parents of the two persons named above. My 2x great grand parents. I know they were married on the 4th feb 1860 In Croagh and their residence is Clough I believe in Co. Limerick. Agnes has a sister called Bridget. I would think their DOB's would be around 1835 +- . I have run up against a wall pretty much so any help would be greatly appreciated. My family originate from Rathkeale, Croagh and surrounding areas.

Many Thanks

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    The Croagh RC records start in August 1836  I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and did not find a baptismal record for Michael so likely he was born and baptized prior to 1836. I did find a likely baptismal record in 1839 in Croagh for Agnes Christy. Did Michael have any younger siblings?

  • Thanks for the welcome Roger,

    That looks like a possiblity for Agnes for sure. Thanks I will take a look. That is the only information I have on Michael I'm afraid. I didnt realise that the baptism records only started around that time. So how do we trace births prior to that.? Many Thanks

    There are no other sources other than existing parish records.
