Had a quick read of the petty session record last night.

The name and area fit (Navan used to be called Butterstream) and so does the age of Michael's son.

How do I find out more?  There must be tons of people with same name as my ancestor in Meath.

Only one Michael Callaghan on that street at that time.

Just back online after receiving a new router.

I printed off the petty session record last night so I could perhaps read it more easily.

Thanks for clarifying the address for me.

Thanks very much for the link.

Only had a quick read but it sounds like this lady is related to my family.

Delia was married to Christopher Callaghan who was the nephew of my 2x great grandfather Michael. 

Christy, as he was known to the family was the son of Thomas, younger brother of Michael.

I am now looking for the death notices of Christy's brothers.

Thomas Vincent (1903-1914).  Died in childhood possibly due to an illness.
James Gerrard (1905-1996)
Michael Joseph (1910)
John James (1912-1980)

I gave this information in my previous post ???

They married in Oristown, Navan, Meath on 25 July 1867.


From your emoticon I know you think that I'm probably being a bit thick here, but I'm struggling to find the 1867 marriage you found on the NLI website.  I also struggled to find a civil marriage.

For RC marriages under Oristown (variant forms Donapatrick/Donaghpatrick/Kilbarry), I can only see marriages from 1763 - 1842 (with 3 gaps), on microfilm 04186/02. Under Navan, I can see marriages from 4 April 1853 to 21 October 1868 (microfilm 04181/06), but I can't see the 1867 one you found.

I just wanted to see the original record (as I suspect many folk will want to in responding to posters about Irish genealogy from this point on), my worry is that I'm doing something fundamentally stupid in searching the NLI website, could you or any of the regulars (you know who you are) post a link to the marriage or provide the microfilm number or tell me where I'm going wrong, either in respect of the RC Church marriage or the Civil Marriage?

Hi there, I wonder if you missed my previous post at reply #18, can you direct me to the 1867 marriage?

I replied to your question a few days ago.  Perhaps you missed my reply?

I have been offline for a couple of days as I have had to wait for a new router.
