McGrath Family Newport Area


Looking for information on McGrath Family for my family tree:  Newport Tipperary Area 


McGrath Gravestone inscriptions below from Kilnarath Graveyard— ( near Newport Tipperary)  The first inscription of the 4 listed below from  Kinarath Graveyard is my Great Great Grandfather Patrick McGrath.  He is 54 at death in 1885  which means he was born about 1831.  I do not know if the others graves are family. 


Patrick McGrath had a brother Cornelius McGrath who died 6 years after him on  26 july 1891 (found death date in family will). I located  a Cornelius McGrath from Killmaguage Newport parish that has a similar date of death he would have been born in 1821 so this may be the brother of Patrick.  Death is reported by house holder William Lenihan same address Killmaguage.


My Great Great Grandfather Patrick McGrath Maried Mary Healy on the marriage cert his address is listed as Nicker and Marys is Nicker Drombane Caherconlish Limerick.  They built a home & business on the N24 in Dromkeen Limerick its now the Maxol Station.  Per the family will only Malchey Mcgrath and James survived childhood to raise families.  They have
