Thomas Regan my 2x great-grandfather was born around 1864. The other Thomas Regan, Hugh's son, (who's actually my grandmother's father's cousin, my mistake!) was born around 1881. Hugh was born approx. 1855. I'm not entirely sure Hugh and Thomas were brothers but they were definitely related.

First, Ballinlough RC baptismal records start in 1839 on the subscription site Roots Ireland although the NLI parish register shows 1844 https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0102
The subscription site Roots Ireland has a June 24 1855 baptismal record in the Ballinlough RC records for a Hugh Regan with father Thomas Regan and mother Mary Discon. They lived in Kiltobar. There was also a September 7 1862 baptismal record in Ballinlough for a Thomas Regan with father Thomas Regan and mother Mary Regan. They also lived in Kiltobar.
There was also another Thomas Regan baptismal record in Ballinlough December 1 1867 father Patrick Regan and mother Margaret Hale. They also lived in Kiltobar.
Kiltobar must be a local placename since I don't see that name in the official townland list.
