Hi, I’m inquiring at this site because I have a listing for Thomas Nihill in either Griffith’s Valuation or the Tithe Applotment Books.  I’m looking for Thomas Nihill/ Nihil/ O’Neill married to Margaret Simons/ Simms---the parents of Mary Nihill/ Nihil/ O’Neill born about 1834. Thanks in advance for your time.

  • Hi,


    Thank you for your message.


    Have you tried searching in church records for Thomas? Most Catholic records are held locally. One website which may help you is the irishtimes website,. Here they give an overview of what records are available in specific parishes. For Doorha, follow this link:


    For Church of Ireland Records you can check:

   (Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland records are currently being uploaded here free of charge. However, this is an on-going project so not all records are available yet)


    You may also want to have a look at the Co. Clare Library's website, as it can be a good source of information for the area, and will also show you what records are available for the area. Here is a link to their genealogy section:


    Alternatively, you could try contacting the Clare heritage Centre for help-however a fee may apply. Here are their contact details:

    I hope that this helps you to find some information on Thomas! Remember to post any new information that you find as the more information you post, the more likely it is that one of our volunteers will be able to advise or assist you.


    Kind regards,
