  • Km,

    The free site under the church records tab has their marriage of 1 Nov 1860 as you mentioned. No residence of parents'names are given, but one of the witnesses was an Ellena McCarthy. In searching that same site, I found just one Margaret Holihane from the RC parish of Clonakilty born 5 May 1835. Her residence was Carrigarf, parents - Daniel Holihane & Eleanor Kohane, witnesses - Daniel Kohane & Joan Kohane. For Patrick, there are three possibilities that you can search and take a look at - one in 1832, 1834, and 1835. All in Clonakilty. If you know their children's names, and they followed the Irish naming tradition, you might be able to figure out which of the three is your Patrick.
