My great great grandparents (James O’Day and Mary Carrigan) both came from Thurles and were married in Melbourne in 1865. Other O’Days came too and I have the full histories. What I would like to do is come to Thurles again and find the marriage of my 3X great grandmother Ellen O’Day need Ryan and Thomas O’Day (or anything about my 4x great grandfather MARTIN RYAN). Does the cathedral have a service for old marriage or baptism records? I have all the details of all the brothers and sisters of James. All plus Ellen O’Day my 3xgreat grandmother died in Melbourne and are buried in the Melbourne General Cemetary.
Think I have found a mistranscribed Familysearch Index record of marriage for my ancestor Jane McNab (transcribed as McNob), to Michael Kenny (transcribed as Canny), at Templemore Thurles Tipperary on 6 Feb 1866. Have not as yet gained access to the original microfilm via Famsearch. Michael was a soldier with the 59th Foot regiment, and think they had met in Glasgow Scotland in 1865 when his regiment was there. Believe they could also have had a child Mary Kenny born ?? Ireland around 1865 – 67. They were Catholic, and I wonder if there are any parish records kept in Templemore? Did Military keep any records of marriages or births? Been chasing this pair for years!! Any ideas re records or military /barracks info would help. Cheers
I suspect you are unto something here.
In December 1865 the Nenagh Guardian newspaper reported that the 11th depot battalion in Templemore had been sent to Newry & Enniskillen, in Northern Ireland, to be replaced by the 59th Regiment from Glasgow.The reason assigned for the transfer of the previous troops is that it was strongly suspected that the regiment had been tainted by Fenianism, latter a term for the Fenian Brotherhood and Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB), dedicated to the establishment of an independent Irish Republic in the 19th and early 20th century.
I regret I am not aware of any military records. Parish records could exist Email Very Rev. Canon Eugene Everard, PP, VF, Templemore, Co. Tipperary, Email Address: email@example.com
My GG Grandmother Bridget Catherine (sometimes went by either name) Ryan, daughter of Michael Ryan and Margaret Tynan, left Thurles, Tipperary, and ended up in Melbourne. She married Lawrence O’Rourke in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia in 1857. They emigrated again to New Zealand around 1862. I am visiting Thurles next year and would like to have any further information of her family if it is at all possible. The parents names were on her marriage records.
