My great great grandfather Patrick Savage migrated to Australia in late 1880's. I have had trouble trying to find his Irish family records. My only document is his Baptismal record as follows: Baptised Curraheen, Co Kerry, 8 February 1852, Mother Mary Corcoran (however family believe could be Mary Carmody but no evidence just handed down), Father Maurice Savage, Sponsor Thomas Savage & Elizabeth Looney. Irish Church Records: Book Number X, Page 8, Entry 131, Record Identifier; KY-RC-BA-475228. Patrick travelled to Australia with his brother Maurice who was baptised in 1853. I haven't been able to locate records for my Great Great Great Grandmother Mary Corcoran (or Carmody) or identify Patrick & Maurices  dad (also called Maurice). If I could find a headstone or some records to expand our limited knowledge that would be a good start. Can anyone help with identifying a local Catholic cemetery that they may have been buried in or even some links to Corcoran / Carmody families that can help us solve our family riddle. I have documented Wikitree profiles for my family if that helps Wikitree Carmody-437

  • Hi Mark, the cemetery for the townlands of Tonavane, Annagh & Curraheen is at  Annagh.

    If you open the search box here at Kerry Local Authority graveyards for Annagh you will find a list of burial records that survive. There are also unmarked graves there with no known records.

    You might also find it useful to check the microfiche of births and marriages here as it sometimes contains records and information not available on

    Good luck now!
