A long time back but my maternal ancestors hailed from Ballygeale. John Broide (c1770 - c1820) was married to Anne nee O'Brien (1777-1876) an dhad three children baptised in Lurriga curch. Terence (1803-1888) Michael (1802-1887) and Ellen (1805 - ?).
Terence and Michael became doctors and moved to Limerick and later onwrds. I don't suppose they is any local knowledge of this family.

I've seached the Historic Graves database for the name Brodie. I note 2 in south and east county Limerick. Your previous message (link pasted above) suggests that you might have connections in this part of the county too so I thought I might post them. Here is a link to the grave markers https://historicgraves.com/graves-search?field_name1_value_1=&field_sur…
One is to a headstone in a graveyard in Bulgaden that marks the burial of a George Bennett, erected by his grand nephew T. Brodie Bennett. I wonder, since T(erence) is a signifcant family name, whether this is a decendant of some of your relatives? The other is to a grave marker erected by Thomas and Emma Brodie in 1860 to their son. Again I wonder is there any connection here/
Note that while these are the only 2 Brodies listed on Historic Graves in Limerick, the database only contains headstones that are currently legible, and not all graveyards in Limerick are currently listed. Another 21 sites will be added over the coming months to the end of October. Check back then as you might be able to find more connections!

Many thanks Dave. I will research these references to see if they tie in.
