    Hello again!

    If Margaret was baptized in the church around Kilnamanagh which would be Ballinameen/Estersnow/Kilnamanagh records do not start until November 1859. I did find an 1852 baptismal record in Boyle RC parish (see below) which is the parish just to the north of Ballinameen. Do you know her mother's name?

  • Thanks again for your response. She was of Corrigeenacree, Elphin which I am unable to identify when they married at Ballinameen (Mantua) - her mother's name was not given, but her eldest daughter was Mary Ann. Am I correct to presume Feely and Feehilly are the same name? The witnesses were Rose Feely and John Cregg. I had noted the 1852 baptism, but her age varies in the 1901 (41) & 1911 (56) census, so I cannot assume. Perhaps it was Carrigeen,Shankill? Your kindness is much appreciated.

    The townland was likely Carrigeenacreeha in Kilcolagh civil parish. The RC parish would have been Kilnamanagh and Estersnow. I have seen Feely and Feehily as the same surname.

  • Hi Linley,

    Margaret Feeley was my great great grandmother. She married john brennan in Boyle in 1883. They had 6 children:

    Timothy, Margaret (married James Conroy), MaryAnne (Married Bernard Brennan), John (married Catherine Higgins), Hanora ( married Jim Brennan) and Bridget (married Patrick Daly). MaryAnne was my great grandmother. Are you related to this family? Let me know if you need any more info.

    Kindest Regards

    Emer O'Hara
