    Welcome to the IrelandXO County Roscommon Community!

    The couple you are looking for is: 

    William Brennan & Brigid Grehan aka Greaghan  (Boyle RC)

    So please join the BOYLE civil parish and add it to your post there.  (Killukin Boyle is not your home parish)

    William Brennan & Brigid Grehan have baptismal records for the following children:

    Michael Brennan b. 1835 | Margaret Brennan b.1838 | Alice Brennan b. 1842 | Eugene aka Owen Brennan b.1848 | Bernard aka Bryan b.1851 | Mary b.1852 | Anne b.1854 

    "Michael Brenan & Brigid Grehan" baptising in (Boyle RC) was a clerical error. Should have been William.    

    William Brennan's siblings were: Michael Brennan | Timothy Brennan | John Brennan | Mary Brennan  |  

     The sponsors they invited as godparents, hold some clues to their siblings and in-laws:

    Michael Grehan  fl. 1835  Elizabeth Coyne  fl. 1835

    Timothy Brennan fl. 1838
    Brigid Cryan   fl. 1838

    Catherine Grehan fl. 1842

    Terence Oates & Maria Brenan   fl. 1848

    John Brennan & Mary Brennan  fl. 1851

    Denis Oates & Anne Kelly  fl.1854

    Michael Brennan & Anne Kelly
