Hi there,

looking for those with the family name of Corless around Ruan. My mother (susan) was from a small village in Lissyline and attended Ruan national school.Who later moved to the UK.
I know that she had 3 brothers John, Martin, Christopher one of whom has in recent years passed away along with the other brothers, never met them. Also there are 2 sisters Ann and Kathleen.
Their parents were Patrick Corless (? Cpl in US army) who I believe married Susan Hynes. And that's pretty much all I got.

Just interested if anyone can help with family history. Many thanks for taking the time to read.

  • Hi Siobhan,

    Why not send a query to the editor of the Clare Herald at ? You'd reach a lot of local people that way.

    Good luck!

    I was looking at your message earlier in the week and then went away for a few days. I did locate the 1935 civil marriage for the couple.

    See third record… Names of fathers are listed

    We only have online access to civil birth records thru 1920.

    Our privacy rules prevent us from looking for living individuals so Patricia's suggestion is the way to go.
