I have located the baptismal record for my grandmother. Bridget Casey.  Baptism 12 March 1871  Ballaghadereen. Parents Thomas Casey and Ann Waldron.  She died in 1920 in Chicago, USA.

I need help obtaining a certified copy of baptismal record.  How do i do that.?  

Anyone researching Casey family from here?  Thank you

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    You would need to contact the Cathedral in Ballaghaderreen to get a baptismal certificate.   There is  likely a fee.

    Let us know if you need additional assistance.

  • I have just received a reply from Father Gavigan at  the cathedral.  He states that he cannot do this because he does not know me and it is for data protection.  Can anyone help please.  The National Library of Ireland gave me the same information that you did and stated that the parish would be able to provide a copy on their letterhead.


    Thank you for any assistance.
