Walsh/Cullen

In March 1832 Walter Walsh married Catherine Cullen (per Ancestry Ireland Catholic Parish Registers).  It mentions Danesfort & Woolengrange and Michael Walsh was a witness.   My gr gr grandmother, Mary, was born to them in1836.  Her marriage in 1861 St Patrick mentions Glauntha.  I believe she had a sister, Alice, maybe born 1839 and a brother, Edmond, born 1833.  Names that appear as witnesses at St. Patrick baptisms of Mary Millea's children include Daniel Cullen, Alice Walsh, Eliza Walsh and Thomas Cullen.

Thank you for any information you can find.

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland and only located two baptismal records for children of Walter and Catherine. Their records are below. Both records mention Glaunta/Glauntha as their residence. That name must be a local placename since I did not find that name in the listing of townlands.

    Here is a link to the Danesfort RC parish register  https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0983  You may want to scan the register for other baptismal records for Walsh children.

  • Thank you so much for the information especially the website.  I wiill look for Cork ancestors.  Do you live near Danesfort; is the church St. Michael?  Hoping to visit next summer.

    I actually live in the States. 

    The parish page shows a picture of the church but not the name of the church so I can't confirm St. Michaels.

  • Kathleen,

    In our researches into the Cotter and Brannan families, we visited Danesfort and Kilkenny a few years ago. St Michael’s School is next to the church, so it’s a reasonable assumption that the church is St Michael’s. Can’t find confirmation in my records though.

    Hope this is helpful and that you get to see the places you mention.

    Regards

    Nigel
