Richard Keogh & Bridget Costello
« on: Friday 08 December 17 16:35 GMT (UK) »
I'm wondering if anyone can helped me as have hit a brick wall.

I am trying to find the marriage / parents of my 2nd great grandparents Richard Keogh & Bridget Costello.

Richard Keogh
BIRTH ABT 1861 • Queens Co, Ireland
DEATH 15 OCT 1939 • Mountmellick, Laois, Ireland

Bridget Costello
BIRTH ABT 1866 • Co. Tipperary, Ireland (*according to 1901 census)
DEATH Unknown

Have them both listed on the 1901 (Keagh) and 1911 (Keough) census in Mountmellick, Laois.

Have the descendants of them but cannot find any marriage records for them - nor can I find the birth certs.  I have found a Bridget Costello B. 1869 in Mountmellick however cannot be sure its her.

First child Mary was born approx 1887.

I have also reviewed the NLI Parish Register but difficult to read so not sure if the entry is on there or not.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Nolan, Cremins & O'Connor - County Kerry, Ireland.
Keogh - Queen's County (Laois)
Stack - Limerick & Clare

Can you post links to the census please.
Closest I can find is this couple
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Queen_s_Co_/Maryborough_Urban/The_Well_Road_formerly_New_Road/1649768/

This couple are Richard Keogh and Bridget Costello on daughter's Julia's birth cert.

Living at New Road Maryboro (Portlaoise)
Bridget was born in Tipperary so possibly married there.
if it's the correct couple
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

Here is the child Richard’s birth

Some of the writing on various birth entries is awful,so may not be transcribed correctly.

Have you looked for the births on Irish Genealogy site?

We don't know that is the correct family yet, the OP said they were living in Mountmellick in both Census.

Hi all
Thanks for your help. They are the correct children. I have got the children's records. It's their own I cannot find any further back i.e. their parents or their marriage details.

Sorry I may have been mistaken exactly with mountmellick I meant to say Maryborough. You had the right census details

Thanks for the confirmation.
I misunderstood, thinking that you couldn’t find the chidren’s birth records.

It may be that for some reason, the marriage hasn’t been indexed.

Do you have Mary’s birth record. I couldn’t find that one.

That was a good point.  It was the only one I didn't have.  So after searching for last couple of hours I have finally found it! Looks as though it was registered in Tipp rather than Laois.

Back on the hunt for Richard Keogh & Bridget Costello marriage however.  I have found a Bridget under the Roscrea births around the right time but cannot be sure its her.  Will try locate Roscrea marriages as if Mary was born in that location - they most likely married there as mentioned before.

I have also noticed a pattern of names being Mary Bridget - so its possible she is down as Mary instead or Bridget - they like to make it confusing.
