"Sollogheadly" Tipperary

My husband's cousin was born 28 Mar 1912. The civil record shows Elizabeth O'Donnell was born in "Sollogheadly".  It's hard to read the handwriting, but that's what it looks like.  Any idea where that might be located?  Could it be in the Tipperary Town area?  Her mother, Alice White, had family in the Anacarty area and father had some family in Tipperay Town.

  • Hi,

    It's Solohead, County Tipperary.
    Nearest Registration district is Tipperary TOWN.      The address is Soloheadbeg  (this looks like Soloheadly.)  Soloheadbeg, is to the right of Solohead.

  • Thank you, Margot.  I had never seen this name before I found this birth record.  Some of the family lived in Tipperary Town and some lived in Anacarty/Donohill so this seems to be very close to those family members.

  • I have used this site quite often. In fact, this is where I found the birth record for Elizabeth.  I had never come across the name Soloheadly on any other records so I was curious about its location. This site does have some great records. Thanks.

  • Hi Peg / Margot, it is actually a famous name in Irish history and credited where the War of Independence started, there are conflicting accounts of what occurred but here is an article from the Irish TImes on the 100th anniversary. https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/soloheadbeg-ambush-wh...

  • Pat and Peg,
    Thanks for the link.
    Have you read...this is the code.    This place is not far from where I lived. When I saw the article in the local newspaper years ago (2006) I had to get a copy.
