Thank you again, it looks like my great grandfather James was spot on about Killenaule too. I intend to write all this up into a booklet for our family. (I used to produce a local club magazine) I want to get more photos of Thomas Meagher's family first though, if I can find them. I emailed the Catholic church in Perth trying to find more info on Sister Mary Vincent who was residing at Leonora near Perth when Thomas died in 1919.

So you can look these Ireland - Roman Catholic parish records, up yourself at the following link.

http://registers.nli.ie/

When inserting the name of the parish > "Killenaule" > you're given two options - suggest you search both.

I've found the baptism of Thomas MAHER :   :)

http://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000632749#page/72/mode/1up

>   Use the page that comes up on screen

>   Select Year, 1840 -- Month, February

>   Select left-hand side page

>   Date looks to be 8 (February)

Annoyingly all the christian names of the babes seem to be abbreviated.

Here's my transcription :

Parish :   Killenaule and Moyglass  (Tipperary)

1840 - February 8

Tom of Patt. MAHER and Mary DWYER
*Sp:   Patt or Matt DANIEL (looks like ?) and ? (Wm?)  DWYER, Graytown.


[Note:  Patt. was a usual abbreviation for "Patrick" in these records - sometimes also spelled as Patk.    Tom = Thomas  /  Jno. = John  etc.   ]

Great to know! Gosh the NZ death cert. was 7 years off on Michael's age at death, I am learning :-) 

I have my tree on familysearch and I have Legacy9 to back it up offline.

I have always been wondering if someone else has followed the same tree back this far, perhaps on Ancestry, but I have friends on Ancestry and we have never found this part of the Maher/Meagher tree. After filling in as many details as possible I can go to one of my friends with a GEDCOM file and upload it to Ancestry, otherwise what would you suggest?
