I've only been able to trace my Irish ancestry back to my Great Grandparents both families were from the Killeshin parish in Laois.  I found my GGgrandfather's name to be John Malone from his son's (Michael) marriage certificate.  I've found no other information on John or his wife, who I think was named Margaret, (not sure of maiden name).  Also, looking for Kelly's from same area.  I believe my Great Grandfather was Thomas Kelly and was married to Johanna Kelly (nee Moran).  No other information on the Kelly side.  

I can't get past the 1880's on either side of the family.  Anyone out there that can help? 

Thanks, Pat
