Hi,  My  Brady family were all baptised at St Michan's.  Thomas Brady (Grt Grt GF) lived on Britain St, Dublin and my Grt GF William Brady and his wife Mary Jane Holmes lived at various Dublin Nth addresses.   Phibsborough Road,  Conliffe St, to name a few.      William and Mary Jane had 4 children in Ireland Elizabeth Holmes Brady (1871-1874) died aged 3 yrs old not sure where she is buried, possbily Glasnevin.   Louisa Dorothea Brady (1872 - 1895) died in NZ aged 22 yrs,  from cancer  and two boys  William Joseph Brady (1874-1928) NZ  Matthew Ambrose Brady (1876-1962) my grandad.

Be interested in hearing from other Brady's in the St Michans parish or Dublin.   

They came out to NZ in 1876 Granddad was just an infant so quite a journey by sailing ship for one so young.

    Many thanks for your query to Ireland Reaching Out and welcome!

    Hopefully someone will see your query with an interest in this parish and some information about the Brady family.  I will alert those who are involved in adjoining parishes in Dublin as well to this message.

    Kind regards,

  • Hi Nick,  I dont have any details of Bradys for you although I am a Brady, I saw this query some long time ago and checked it out and found your records as you said they were and wondered had someone carried the records with them or were you just good at checking it out for yourself.  I have checked out some of my wifes Tancred family that went to NZ and Australia to find that they were doing the same, when I saw it again I wondered had someone gone to the trouble of keeping the records on their journey,?  I dont think you will have much luck  in your quest ,if you do,. let me know and I will buy you a lottery ticket. Sorry , that sounds smart and Im not trying to be.  Best of luck

  • Hi Nick:

    Please consider creating an Ancestor profile for any of the family members that you have mentioned in your earlier post.  

    Very often, there are other members who are researching the same families who will be alerted to your post (or Ancestor profile) and they will reply.  The link to create a post is here:


    Regardless of what searcher said, I think that your information is excellent and you should be able to find out more, but you will probably have to do more research.  The Ancestor profile would alert others in the St Michan's parish area as well as anyone with the Brady surname.  

    The best of luck and please let us know if we can assist you further.

    All the best,

  • I grew up knowing a family named Brady who lived on Parnell St, Dublin. We would visit them a lot they were known as Vera and Maura Brady who now reside at 60 Annale Dr, Marino, Dublin D09.V8YO Ireland. Sadly Maura Brady passed unforntunately I do not have a date for this. They had a brother named Tommy Brady who lived on Capel St or Jervis St Dublin 7. I hope this bit of info helps I will be in Ireland in January for a long time and am willing to look them up so I can see if they are still around. My mom's name was Agnes Walsh (Gunning) maiden name is the one in brackets. Hope this helps you
