 Ann is this the same John Flatley you were searching for Yesterday. Ie Mayo
                You did not know where in Mayo he was born.
 So do you now know he was born in Knock.? :-\

KP, The Knock records don't start until 1868.  There may be the odd one or two from earlier years, but County Mayo has the least records of all the Counties.  You could try ordering up film through LDS - if it's available and search them all.  Believe me, I've been there, visited the area twice and I still cannot locate the family.
Good luck
Dee

Ann, I am not trying to be negative.  I know just how hard it is.  There are days when I am climbing walls, but some records were not kept.  Have a look at this website and see if you can 'glean' anything from it.

www.from-ireland.net/mayo/mayorcindex.htm -   Click on Bekan and have a look.

On this particular website, type in Flatley and see if there is anything to help you:      www.rootsweb.com/~irlmayo/records.htm

good luck
Dee

Ann, here are the LDS references for ordering film to view re Bekan.  I hope there is an LDS Centre near you.

Film Notes
Note - Location [Film]
Marriages 1832-1843 -  FHL BRITISH Film [ 1279209 Item 13 ]
Baptisms 1832-1843 -  FHL BRITISH Film [ 1279209 Item 14 ]
Marriages 1844-1866 Baptisms 1844-1860 -  FHL BRITISH Film [ 1279209 Item 15 ]
Baptisms 1865-1904 Marriages 1899-1910 -  FHL BRITISH Film [ 1279209 Item 16 ]

Also, have you contacted the Catholic Church in Ballyhaunis?  They are closest to Bekan and may hold records.
