My husbands gt grandparents Jane Brennan and Peter Walsh were married 31/01/1853 in Rathfarnham we know of seven children, four of which were born in Tallaght.Eliza,Jane,Mary and Peter.We would love to find out more about Jane Brennan who were her parents and siblings.

If anyone has any details or can point us in the right direction which way to go to find there graves it would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks Kathy B.

    Hello Kathy,

    In regards to finding a grave site for Jane and Peter Walsh, you could try to find a civil record of their deaths. This would give you their last residence which would narrow down their place of burial. Civil registration records are available from the General Register Office (GRO). These start from 1864. You can access the website here:

    Best regards Michael.

  • My fathers grandma, Kate Nolan (Kathleen Nolan nee Molloy) died in England in 1963 but was taken home to Tallaght to be buried. He would dearly love to visit her grave but we don't know where she is. We understood she was going to be buried with her husband Tommy and there's a Thomas and Kathleen Nolan at Maelruain but the dates aren't right. Where else might they be. They were Catholic if that helps.

    For arruss380

    Kate molloy and Tommy Nolan were my mothers grandparents. I have been to ST Melrauns and spoken to the Sextant there. There is a grave there with a Thomas Nolan buried in 1929 & a Catherine Molloy from Salford buried in 1963. My grandad was john Nolan their son. Unfortunately the grave is unmarked and there is no record to show its location. I have more info on these people if you want to discuss it. Feel free to contact me.

    Cheers Martin
