Help deciphering Irish baptism
« on: Thursday 04 April 19 16:55 BST (UK) »
Hi all,
I'm afraid i can't snip or take a screen shot to post. If any one has ancestry could you look at this link for Thomas Lynch bap 11th Apr 1841 parents Thomas Lynch & Catharina Cronan.
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interactive/61039/02469_01_0037?pid=2881989&backurl=https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv%3D1%26dbid%3D61039%26h%3D2881989%26tid%3D71027372%26pid%3D34433318684%26usePUB%3Dtrue%26_phsrc%3DfQd7751%26_phstart%3DsuccessSource&treeid=71027372&personid=34433318684&hintid=&usePUB=true&_phsrc=fQd7751&_phstart=successSource&usePUBJs=true

Can you tell me make out the rest of the information please?
Thanks  :)

Witnesses/Sponsors look like Michael Cronan and Anna Walsh. The place is Ballygheoghan.

The last name is M. O'Gorman, the priest.

Ballygheoghan may well be Ballygegan in Kilkenny, the next county. It would have been pronounced bally-gay-gan.

It's in Latin for starters.  ???

Yes it seems to be more names. Maybe the Godparents? seems likely as Dublin1850 correctly deciphered. Michael shares the same surname as the mother.

I can't see what you are looking at but assuming it's RC, if you need help with another record in the future
Find it here https://registers.nli.ie/ and you can post a link everyone can see.
