Hi everyone,

I am making a trip in 2024; I would like to at least visit the church where my 2x gr. grandmother Mary Quinlan was baptised. It is on the border of Tipperary and Offaly counties. I hope after I find the church and can obtain some church records. I have attached the record. I would love to find distant relatives as well. 

baptism date 1838

baptism place- Moneygall, Tipperary and Offaly, Ireland

Parish variants-Barnam Dunkerrin, Moneygall and Barna


Father- Malick (Malacky) Quinlin

Mother- Mary Dillon

thank you for any help,

Debbie Colson

  • I will Patricia!! It looks like Moneygall is half in County Offaly too after doing some more researching. There is a church called St. Joseph's that was built in 1820, so my 2x great grandmother could have been baptized there.
