Mary Ellen McGrath (variations various documents MacGrath, Mcgraigth, McCraith etc) daughter of Margaret Coughlan & John McGrath married James O'Donoghue in Mitchelstown RC Church records 1883. They lived and operated the public house at 16 Lower Cork Street Mitchelstown which I suspect was owned by her father John McGrath before he died. Children of the marriage all baptised Mitchelstown RC cathederal; John Joseph 1884, Patrick 1885, Thomas 1886, William 1890, Johanna 1892, James 1893, Margaret 1895, Michael 1898 Most of them plus Mary's mother Margaret are buried in the RC Cathederal cemetery in Mitchelstown. we have yet to locate where her father is buried as he is not listed on the O'Donoghue family plot. .
David Coughlan son of Timothy Coughlan & Margaret Whelan married Ellen MaGuire (variations) we think C1858/60 probably in the RC parish of Knocklong/Glenbrohane. We can't find a record but it could be another 'miss' in the transfer of microfiche records to digital records. Children; Timothy baptised/birth recorded Knockalon/Glenbrohane 1861, the rest of the children are recorded at Kilbehenny RC church William 1862, Joseph 1863, Patrick 1866, Margaret 1868, Mary 1870, Ellen 1873, Johanna 1875 civil record no church record, Elizabeth 1879, John 1882, Bridget 1888. We suspect there was a sixth son born before Timothy but we have no baptism/birth record.
Margaret Coughlan daughter of Timothy Coughlan & Margaret Whelan married John McGrath (variations on various documents) in 1856 recorded at Kilbehenny RC Church. to date we have only located one daughter Mary Ellen part of the reason is that she was born in County Cork not Limerick - see further marriage of Mary McGrath and James O'Donoghue.
Coughlan/Fitzgerald (Jeremiah)
Ellen Coughlan daughter of Timothy Coughlan & Margaret Whelan married Jeremiah Fitzgerald recorded at Kilbehenny RC Church 1848. Movements unclear but they appear to have been in Kilglaffe about 1897 and after her husband died resided with her niece Mary O'Donoghue at 16 Lower Cork Street, Mitchelstown as 1911 census. Unclear how many children but appears to have been at least one son Patrick and a grandson John born1887 at Caherdrinny.

red mail William Walsh, son of Thomas Walsh and Margaret Slattery.
WILLIAM Walsh (Bapt 1st Nov 1864) was the youngest child of Thomas and Margaret. Their children were Julia, John, Bridget, John, Patrick, Mary and my Wiliam, who married Margaret Hogan of Mitchelstown. Bridget married Mathew Meade. John married Mary O'Brien. Patrick married Johanna O'Brien, whose children are Michael, John, David, Patrick, Edward, Pierce, Mary, Thomas. Were the O'Brien girls, sisters? WILLIAM (1864)had a large family in Australia. I'd like to find details of his older siblings and their families.
