My great granfather Philip Purcell was born in Callan and lived on Green Street in 1874. His parents were Philip Purcell born 1846 and Catherine Cass born 1843 , possibly born in Kilkenny or Tipperary.Philips parents were Philip Purcell (1810) and Judith Corcoran. I can't find any proper records after 1874. Any information greatly appreciated
