Cratloe is a place name in two parts of Co. Clare. As you can see from the link below, Cratloe is in the Civil Parishes of Kilfintinan and Killeely:
Records for the corresponding Roman Catholic Parish of Cratloe begin in 1802 and Parteen and Meelick begin in 1831 for baptisms and 1814 for marriages. Have you already searched some of the sites below for further information?

I also have relatives from Cratloe. Michael McMahon born 1815 Cratloe married Eliza Raleigh. Found his birth on roots Ireland parents listed as Matthew McMahon and Maria Shanessy. I know he was a stone mason and Michael s son James moved to Tralee and married Jane Ryan. Not sure if same McMahons

I have new information re my Denis McMahan b @1819, (most likely from the Carigaholt area). His mother has been identified as Hannah (Honorah?) Obrien. and Father Denis McMahon. Denis jnr married Bridget Cahill about 1838/39 in Tarmon. They had a daughter Lucy b @1839. They left for NSW Australia in 1840. Denis and Bridget both died in 1867, in NSW Australia.
I note from tithe applotment records that there were both a Michael and a Denis registered as "having" land in the Carrigaholt area during the 1820'/30's. Possibly father and uncle. So my new search area is Carrigaholt. Any information would be appreciated.Thankyou for your reply
Hi Grainne, I just seen your name the other day on the Heritage site but couldn't reply as not a premium member and these McMahon's I believe are GGGGrandparents on my hubby side , a second cousin Brian gave me the info of Micahel McMahon and Eliza Raleigh. Funny thing today he is meeting up with Ryan's from USA and is having a wee gathering in Dublin with the McMahon cousins. Sent you an email though this site and hope you got it okay. Thanks Rita
