Welcome to the Ireland Reaching Out message board.
I would recommend that you create an Ancestor Profile for Francis Neilan on the XO Chronicles feature. He sounds like he would make a great profile story for our readers and it is quite possible that others may be researching this same family and can offer further information. The link is below:
I would also recommend that you take a look at the Clare Library website as there has been a lot of transcription work done on parish registers and these are not only available to view but also to download. The link to Miltown Malbay (Kilfarboy civil parish) is here: http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/places/kilfarboy.htm
If you need any further assistance or have other questions, please let us know.
