Hi,

I can see one marriage that matches those two names but its not in Templemichael but in Drumlish RC in 1834. I found these for the births of children too:

James Donnelly b. 1834 in Drumlish, Co. Longford
Briget Donnelly b. 1846 in Drumlish, Co. Longford

I can't find a birth for Patrick though, which is weird.

Hope this helps,

Annie

P.S: Found this information on www.rootsireland.ie
The surnames, which I am interested in are; Maternal side: Ryan, Kevin, Grant, Grady, Gleeson, Walsh, Dwyer, Paternal side: O' Dwyer, Woodlock, Rochford - all in Tipperary; and Kelly and Hoynes in Laois.

Ryan, Campbell, Luttrell, Grant, Grahame, Bainbridge and Brown in Queensland, Australia

Tighe in Victoria, Australia.

Grant in Philadelphia, Sullivan and Penny in New York; and Britton in Connecticut
