    Can You Help Eileen?

    My sister and I will be visiting County Mayo May 10-17 from the USA. Our grandmother Mary Duffy was born in Clooncara in 1866. We hope that we might be able to track down some descendants who remained in Ireland after my grandmother and some of her siblings emigrated to Philadelphia.

    Michael Duffy (birth date unknown) married Catherine Regan ( birth date unknown) in Kilbeagh/Charlestown RC parish in 1863. They had ten or more children between the years 1866-1884. My grandmother Mary and siblings Ellen, Ann, and Thomas emigrated to Philadelphia, and I have good records in the US.

    Other siblings are Celia (b1872), Bridget (1875), Patrick (1877), Charles (1881), Catherine (1881), Edward (1884). All birth/baptismal records indicate Clooncara , Kilkelly, Swinford as birthplace. Also have a marriage record for Patrick and Anne Tolan in Kilmovee RC Church in 1913. I would like to find death/burial records for those who remained in Ireland.

    We would greatly appreciate any ideas or suggestions for our visit. We will arrive on Wednesday May 10 and will be staying in Claremorris until Saturday May 14.
