They were married March 3, 1835.. Children Mary Kenny, Catherine Kenny  Hopefully parents names if any  I know he has a brother Michael Kenny 1821-1886


Thank you

  • Alice:

    The RC parish records for Kilmoremoy/Ballina parish start in 1823  so there would be no baptismal record for John Kenny or Bridget Egan.

    I looked at all the Kenny baptismal records in Kilmoremoy parish from 1823-1830 and none of the records were for a family living in Farrannoo.

  • John Kenny's brother Michael was my great-great-grandfather. Unfortunately their parents' names are not recorded. A John Kenny is recorded in Farrannoo in the Tithe Applotment Books in 1834 - this is probably John but may  *possibly* be his father. John and his brother Michael are both recorded in Griffith's Valuation in Farrannoo in 1856.

    The Kilmoremoy register entry for their marriage records that Bridget Egan was from the townland of Croftonpark (also known as Parkes/Parks). Their daughter Mary married Martin Reape of Knockegan on 23 March 1871 and their daughter Catherine married Pat Mulderrig, son of Philip Mulderrig and Ellen Weir of Rappa on 26 April 1877.

    I have documented sources I have located on John Kenny and his family here:

  • Thank you Jean.  I was trying to figure out if John Kenny was a brother to my Martin Kenny .  Or if Bridget Egan is related to my other Egan's. We are showing a match on Ancestry. I am thinking through the Kenny's.

  • Where were your known Kennys and Egans from? Our match is small so Ancestry isn't showing shared matches.
