Re: Clune, Dixon, Laydon

Jeff, There were seven Clune marriages married in Kilmaley Parish between 1829 and 1900. This list was published in the Kilmaley magazine in 1997. I checked again and Mathias and Bridget Leyden were married in 1835. I wouldn't put too much concern into the dates and ages. As an example when you comp...

Re: Clune, Dixon, Laydon

The Leyden/Leadon/Leydon's of Drimanure would likely be who you are looking for. The townland of Drimanure straddles the Inagh/Kilmaley Parish borders and abuts Cloonanaha. THE LEYDEN’S OF DRIMANURE, KILLANIV The Leyden family of Drimaure can be traced back to the 1826 Tithe Applotments. At that tim...

This page appeared in the 1987 Kilmaley Parish magazine and was a reprint of Hugh Weir's book "Houses of Clare".

I hope it helps!

Re: Irish inscription on Burke grave in Killernan

Based on the grave inscription I believe that John Thomas Pilkington and Bridget (Delia) Hehir were married, but not in Kilmaley Parish. It is likely that you might find that marriage in K-I Parish or even Inagh Parish.

If it exists in K-I parish I'll bet Kevin O'Brien will locate it.

Re: Irish inscription on Burke grave in Killernan

Bridget Pilkington (nee Burke) mentioned in the inscription is likely the wife of John Pilkington in neighboring Aildavore, Kilmaley. John and Bridget were married prior to 1885 and had at least two children. John Thomas ...
