Hello again,

I have been through lots of records and cannot find either Edward or Margaret, I know that they had died before 1867.

Are there any Foleys or Doyle's left in the Leighlin area, it would be lovely if we were related.

Thanks
Kathy

Hi Jack,

They must be the same family somewhere along the line.  The majority of the names you posted have been passed down my family line.

Thank you for taking the time to help me

There are a few Foley families living in or around Leighlinbridge still.Also a good few Doyle families.Doyle is a very plentiful name around Carlow,Foley less so.
The vast majority of the christian names from the headstone inscriptions are very common esp Patrick,John,James,Brigid ,Margaret,Mary ,Kate etc.Daniel and William probably less so but still pretty common

202 Foley's on 1901 census for Carlow.Most likely DED's relevant to the Leighlin area would most likely be Leighlinbridge,Old Leighlin,Clogrennane,Rathornan,Ridge.

1576 Doyle's in Carlow at the same time.
