Kerrigan Family Sligo
« on: Sunday 20 November 05 00:06 GMT (UK) »
I wonder if any one can help me I am trying to find where my great grand parents lived in Sligo. I know they married in Cliffony St Molais Rc Church and their First son Denis was Baptised there also, Their Names were Patrick Kerrigan and Bridget McGowan all the info I have about the Kerrigans in Sligo are the one family at Coolbeg Drumcliff and another at Moneygold a third at Castlegal all in Ahamlish. The marriage took place 1852 but the three familes were still there into the 1900s. Does anyone know if one of these were my family this is a brickwall I cannot get past please help!!!!

Thanking all in advnce Hudggy ??? ??? ??? ???

Hello Hudggy

There were several families named Kerrigan in Sligo in 1858 when Griffiths Valuation of Ireland was conducted in the county.  http://www.failteromhat.com/griffiths.php
Here is a map of the area www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?city=Mullaghmore&state=&country=ireland&size=big

Best Wishes, Christopher

Hi Christophor,
 I have looked at the links and found 2 Patrick Kerrigans but this does not show who he was married to, is there someway to find his wives names. Also on the map you have showen me there is no Townland Lavally or parish Killerry do you know where in Sligo this is.

Hello Hudggy,

There are three places name Lavally in Co. Sligo http://www.thecore.com/seanruad

1. 340 acres. Barony - Carran. Civil Parish - Toomour. PLU - Sligo
2. 629 acres. Barony - Tirerrill. Civil Parish - Killerry. PLU - Sligo
3. 1360 acres. Barony - Tirerrill. Civil Parish - Ballyaumaghan. PLU - Sligo
Lewis's Topographical Dictionary of Ireland, 1837 mentions Killery

Hi Christopher,

Thanks again for your kind help I think maybe you have helped point me in the right direction. As I cannot find where my family comes from my 2nd great grand parents were married in Cliffony which seems is not that far from Kilerry.

Thanks again Hudggy
