Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!
There are many Kellys in Athleague RC parish. I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and there were no Patrick Kelly baptismal records in 1856 in Athleague. There was one in 1855 (see below) and another in 1857.The one below shows March 21st as the baptismal date and baptisms usually were in the first week after birth. I would also caution that a good number of emigrants used March 17th as their birth date and also adjusted their year of birth to fit their circumstances. I did not find a baptismal record for a John or an Edward Kelly with the parents shown on the Patrick record.
