I have been attempting to research my family from the area around Durrow.. My great grandfather Hugh Lalor (which transformed to Lawler when in England) seems to have been born in 1838 but I cannot be certain. The details I've found are: Baptised 29 0ct 1838 Raheen

                                                                         Father   Patt Lalor  born1808     married1840

                                                                         Mother   Kitty Lawless   born 1815

I cannot find details of any other children.  Is anyone able to help with whether these details seem correct. The big problem i have haf isthat there are so many Lalors,Lawless,Bows,Bulgers and others with the same names it gets very confusing.

If anyone can offer any help I would be very grateful

Shaun Lawler.

  • Dear Shaun:

    Thank you for your post to the Ireland Reaching Out message board and welcome to the site.

    I have had a look for you through the Roots Ireland Database but have been unable to find any reference to Hugh Lawlor born to Patrick Lawlor and Kitty Lawless.

    Is this information that you obtained through records in England? 

    You might consider creating an ancestor profile for Hugh Lawlor to see if others are also researching this same family.  The link for doing so is located at the top of the page marked "XO Chronicles".

    If you have any other information that you would like to share, please do so.

    The best of luck with your research!

    Kind regards,



    Jane Halloran Ryan
