I am looking for any information on my grandmother Mary Ellen Nee and her parents. dob- 7/26/1898 Turlough, Rosmuc Galway. Her parents were Martin Lawrence Nee (1863-1938) and Mary Coyne (1865-1938). I would love to know what parish they were in and where Martin and Mary Coyne are buried and any other information anyone may have. 

Thank you.

  • In the baptismal record transcribed at RootsIreland, Mary Ellen's birth date is given as 27 July, not 26.  I have not seen the actual register, but you may want to check it.  You asked about the parish--it is Rosmuc--I think you had that info already.

    Note Coyne here is recorded as Kyne.  


    I hope this is helpful.
