Hello - I'm hoping for some help connecting my 3rd great-grandmother Honora Moriarty with Tralee Parish.  Honora married my 3rd great-gradfather Laurence Meehan in 1810 in Templebredin.  My entire extended Irish family is from county Limerick, however I couldn't find any Moriarty family connected with any of the RC parishes my family was part of.  

Since I know Honora and Laruence were married in 1810, I searched based on an assumption of age and found an Honora Moriarty from Tralee Parish born to John Moriarty and Margaret White in Sept 1779.  The rest of the Honora/Nora Moriartys I found would have been way too young (or I suppose older and wouldn't have had a parish record).  Honora and Laurence did have children named John and Margaret, so it seems possible that this could be my 3rd great-grandmother.

Would appretiate any help talking through this.  Would it be unusual for someone to travel that far at the time?  It certainly did not seem like any of my other family travelled far from their family parish until they emigrated.

Thank you for the help!  -Chris Meehan
