Alice's eldest son was born in 1858 and Nicholas's eldest son was a born in 1856. Sorry but am guessing they would have been in their early 20s at that stage - big assumption I know

Waterford / Beresford and Kirwan Dungarvan and Kilrossanty

My great great grandmother was Alice Beresford who married Pierce Kirwan from Kilrossanty. Her brother Nicholas married Johanna, Pierce's sister. On Johanna's grave dated 1876, it says it was erected by her husband Nicholas of Castlequarter Dungarvan. I can't find any record of Alice's or Nicholas' marriage certs or their birth certs. Any one know this family ? Paul

Hi reached a road block on my great great grandparents. Patrick Whelan and Anastasia Hufsham married in Abbeyside in 1846. Patrick was from a seafaring family as was Anastasia. They had 4 children, Katherine, Mary, Bridget and Patrick. They were grandparents of Captain Tom Donoghue of Kerlogue fame, my grandmothers older brother. I can't find any details of Patrick and Anastasia's family but I think Anastasia's father may have been Dutch and called Moses. Anyone else come across these names ? Paul

Galway / Born in Galway Workhouse
« on: Monday 17 November 14 19:30 GMT (UK)  »
Hi I just found out that my grandparents eldest child was born in the Galway City Workhouse in 1915. My grandfather is down as living in St Brendan's Terrace. Would this be normal to be born in the workhouse instead of at home ? Was the workhouse used as a hospital ? They had only just moved to Galway from Tipperary does anyone know what the area of St Brendan's Terrace would have been like at that time
