James born October 1838
Margaret born June 1841
Patrick born Aug 1843

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    The subscription site Roots Ireland has all seven baptismal records that you listed. All in Pallasgrean. Here is the link to the parish register https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0279 I copied the records for the youngest, James and oldest children below. Let me know if you need another record. I did not find the marriage record.

  • Thank you so much Roger. 

    That was so kind of you to search this, I have been looking for ages, I am not on The roots Ireland site, as I can not afford the subscription at the moment, if it was not to much to ask I would be so grateful if you were able to get the rest of the siblings please. I am confused that there is two children called Margaret. Would that have been the case in families? 

    Are you able to find any information on Daniel Connell/O'Connell and Margaret Curtin. There Parents, Baptism ect would be amazing. infact any thing at all.

    Thank you for all your help.

    Kind regards

    Debbie,

    The four records are below. The 1841 Margaret had to die young and they reused the name which was a common 19th century practice. There are too many Daniel Connell records to know which one is correct. I will look for Margaret Curtin possibilities later.

    No Margaret Curtin baptismal records in Pallasgrean parish around 1810-1817.

  • I have looked in the Census for the family but it does not show them listed. Any suggestions on other areas that might help please.

    I did not see a good lead for Daniel Connell in the 1850 Griffiths Valuation records.

    If I was you (and this will take some work), I would search for civil marriage records for the children starting 1864 to see if you can find a marriage record where the father is Daniel. (Civil marriage records show the names of the fathers of the bride and groom.) The record also shows where the bride and groom were living. You need to search under the Tipperary registration district. That area of Limerick where Pallasgrean and Templebredin are located fall in the Tipperary district.
