Just read your very welcome posting on Ireland Reaching Out and you have described the family I have been researching. Two of Bridget Fagan's brothers (Patrick born about 1829 and Laurence born about 1840) immigrated to Australia. There was a Jane Fagan and Richard Fagan baptised in Dunderry and they are the sister and brother of Bridget Fagan as well. I have never discovered where Richard Fagan ended up, but Jane Fagan married Patrick Sherlock and had a pub in Ludlow Street, Navan. Patrick was married with 13 children and they all came over. Laurence Fagan immigrated and was married in Brisbane to Fanny Cruise from Tullamore, Co. Offaly. The Fagan family are all buried in Brisbane, Queensland. Laurence was my great grandfather whose son Joseph was my grandfather. I have been trying to find a baptismal certificate for Laurence and Bridget but haven't had any luck. I had an idea they may have been born in Robinstown but have never found any records. If you care to contact me, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I could tell you something of the Fagan family here in Australia. Thank You again Marie M.
