The register of baptisms in Kilkee parish, like most baptismal registers, does not indicate in which of the churches in the parish the baptism took place; John Johnston was more likel...

Re: McMahon house & castle in Moyarta parish

I don't think that Breen & UaCroinín have gotten around to publishing on Carrigaholt Castle in the Other Clare yet - there is nothing to indicate that they have done so in the table of contents at https://tbreen.home.xs4all.nl/Journals/Clare.html Hugh Weir does cover Carrigaholt Castle and Cottage o...
