Welcome to ireland Reaching Out!
Athleague is one of the few RC parishes in Co. Roscommon that have records going way back. Here is a link to the register. Records start in 1808 but the baptismal records have gaps http://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0537
I just searched on Roots Ireland and could not find a Margaret Mulvey/Kilduff marriage and did not locate a baptismal reocrd for a Kilduff child with father Patrick and mother with the surname of Mulvey. Based on this search they may have come from a different parish or possibly the child was baptized in a record gap period e.g. 1828-1834
The 1830 Tithe records for Athleague did not show any Kilduff records but there was a Pat Mulvee in Cloony
There were Patrick Kilduff Tithe records in the nearby parishes of Rahara and Killinvoy.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for your reply, Roger. I'll do some more digging and may be back to you. Hope your day's a good one.
I live in the parish of Athleague, I am currently assembling all of our known church and civil records, it has become a work in progress. Yes there most certainly ,both Kilduff and Mulvey families in this parish There are up on one hundred entries in the church records. The Mulvey family is often spelt as MULVEE, ....and sometimes it was spelt MULREY? Since there are so many different spellings and the multiple of entries, it would take Some time to browse my hand written records . But for sure both families lived here in Athleague. Google - Thomas Mulrey of New York, an interesting emigrant, also an Athleague native.
If I can be of any help!
Kind regards TIMOTHY DUKE
