lahinch and marriage records in Ennistymon
« on: Tuesday 06 April 21 20:17 BST (UK) »
First of all, can someone confirm to me, what Catholic parish Lahinch historically belongs to?  When I look at a map, it seems pretty confusing.  I can't tell if it is in Liscannor or Kilmanaheen.

Secondly, is Ennistymon in Kilmanaheen RC parish?

Is anyone familiar with the Ennistymon (Catholic) records?  I'm wondering how far back the marriage records go, and whether they would give both parents' names for a marriage that happened in 1864.

I can confirm that Lahinch appears in the Kilmanaheen Catholic register.  As well as Ennistymon.

On the NLI website, when the register of baptism begins in 1870, it seems to be in a detailed form that suggests that the marriage records would give the mothers' names as well as the fathers'.  There seem to be earlier records available, but not on the NLI site.
