Mary was born in Claras, Cashel West Co Longford circa 1909 to Daniel Skelly and Bridget Skelly (née Murray). Mary married James Ryan. She died circa 1942. She had a sister, Ann, a brother Michael who both emigrated to the US, and a half brother Johnny who died in the Longford Co Home aged 24. Michael was my father. I'm searching for Mary's descendants.

  • To whoever posted the above information, thank you so much, this means so much to me, and fills in some of the blanks in my father's history. I'm wondering how you found this info, and whether this would have been available online. Again, thank you SO much.

  • I am also trying to find the burial sites of Daniel Skelly, and Bridget (Murray) Skelly, can you point me in the right direction if this information is online? I am hoping to be in Longford summer 2022 and will spend some time searching records. Thank you!

  • Unfortunatly  this info is not online, not that I know anyway.  saw your note and was able to relate it to the headstone in the local cemetery

    James and Mary's marriage is online at…

    My guess is that Daniel and Bridget  are buried in the same cemetery, I will try find out more
