My great, great grandfather was born in 1844 and baptized on 6 Jan 1844 in Hospital according to records I have found.  I was wondering if there was any other information you might help me with regarding his family.  His father's name was Tom and mom was Johanna Hayes.  I was hoping to see if there were any marriage records for him as my great grandmother Mary was his daughter but I am struggling finding anything on her.


Thanks in advance for any information.

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    William had at least three siblings: Ellen 1838 Margaret 1842 John 1845  The parents were married in 1837 in Knockainey and Peterswell. See transcription below from Roots Ireland

    Date of Marriage:05-Feb-1837
    Parish / District:KNOCKAINY & PATRICKSWELL
    County:Co. Limerick
    Husband  ThomasSullivan
    Wife JoannaHayes

    I did not find Thomas Sullivan in the 1850 Griffiths Valuation in Hospital civil parish but there were 19 records with that name and possibly he was in a different parish.

    I did not find any Mary Sullivan baptismal records with father William in the Hospital RC parish.
