  • Subscription site has a record of variants of this name going back to 1749 in County Tipperary. The main concentration are in the Newport area. 

    Nothing found for a Baragry in Oola. 

    The families are recorded as Roman Catholic.

  • Attached Civil death record of a Patrick Berkery in Murroe (Moroe) in 1884. He may not be the person whom you are seeking, but it is the only one I have found for 1880 - 1886. Civil records in Ireland are from January 1st 1864. Not all are on record, so it can be difficult to find details of a death.

    Those records can be accessed for free at Land records are from 1823 to c1866 at (Tithe) and for Griffith's.

    Many  Roman Catholic baptism records were written in latin, so they can be difficult to decipher.

    Oola, Murroe and Doon are in the same general area of Limerick County and bordering on County Tipperary.
