MICHAEL DALY, YOU ASK?

HE HAD A FIELD WITH THE CLEARYS ON THE BORO ROAD

Dear Phil,

I have been reading your website about your ancestors and the people of the Galtees in Co. Limerick with great interest, as my Great Grandmother, Catherine Daly, came from this Mitchelstown Area of Co. Limerick.

She was born about 1831. She migrated alone, as a single lady, aged 23, and arrived in Hobart on Christmas Day 1854, on the ship "William Hammond".

One of her Granddaughter's who had childhood memories of her, claimed Catherine had followed her brother to Hobart, but couldn't remember her brother's name.

After much researching, I found a Michael Daly aged 44, who had arrived in Hobart on the Ship "Kingston" on the 26 August 1854, from Co. Limerick with his wife Mary (Kierly) aged 40, and with their children: Ellen aged 19, Denis aged 16, Catherine aged 15, Alice aged 14, Margaret aged 7, Michael aged 4, and Roger aged 2.

Michael & Mary had five more children, born in Hobart and on researching their Marriages and Baptisms in Hobart I found my Great Grandmother Catherine and her children, frequently featured as sponsors to Michael's children and vice versa.

Alice Daly was Catherine's bridesmaid when she married James Cooper in 1860. Therefore I was fairly certain that Michael Daly is my Great Grand Uncle.

I then enlisted the help of the "Tipperary Family History Research", which has all the genealogical data for the Archdiocese of Cashel and Emily. This Archdiocese covers the eastern half of Co.Limerick and the western half of Co.Tipperary.

Since Michael Daly's several children provided more links than great grandmother Catherine Daly's lone baptism, I requested a search for his baptism, his marriage, his sibling's baptisms and his children's baptisms. The available records for the different parishes cover different periods of time.

Galbally Parish records cover the period 1809 to 1899; Ballylanders Parish records cover the period from 1842 to 1899 and Kilbehenny records cover the period from 1824 to 1899.

The information I received may be of interest, to yourself or others with ancestors in the area:


NAME - DATE OF BAP - PARISH ADDRESS - FATHER MOTHER

MICHAEL Daly 4/1/1810 Galbally to Michael DALY + Catherine LEWIS

CATHERINE DALY 10/3/1819 Galbally Keeloges Daly Michael Lewis Catherine

Note! This Catherine must have also died in infancy as my great grandmother was born in about 1831, in the Mitchelstown area of Limerick, so I guess her parents Michael DALY & Catherine LEWIS must have moved to Ballylanders Parish, where the first baptisms were recorded in 1842, about 9 years after my Great Grandmother's birth Catherine's birth.


MICHAEL Daly (born 4/1/1810) married Mary KIELY about 1834 probably in Ballylanders Parish, because no marriage record was found in Galbally or Kilbehenny Parishes.

However, baptisms for some of their Limerick born children were found in Kilbehenny Parish.
