Another birthday coincidence

Last week I wrote a quick post about our family birthday coincidences.

Today I have another birthday coincidence and I've only just realised it.

I received a couple of "Happy Blogiversary" comments (thanks Grant and Jim) today but I hadn't

remembered that the actual date of my first blog post was the 7th of February 2012.

I've been a bit busy of late.

The 7th of February is also the birthday of my wonderful Stepdad.

  Happy Birthday Bud and thank you for always being there for us.

Mulloughn(e)y surname in Tipperary

I am hoping to connect with any Mulloughny/Mulloughney researchers in Tipperary.

My great great great grandmother was Mary Mulloughney.  

All I know about her is that she married Cornelius Kelly in Dualla, Tipperary in 1834 and that Roman 

Catholic baptism records have been found for six children.

A couple of sponsors at these baptisms also had the surname Mulloughney.  Possibly related to Mary?

  • Son Michael Kelly was baptised on 18 September 1836 at Dualla. Sponsors were Patrick Mulloughny and Mary Mahony.
  • Son Thomas was baptised on 1 January 1843 at Dualla.  Sponsors were Thomas Quinlan and Catherine Mulloughny

I have found quite a few Patrick Mulloughney's in the Griffiths Valuation record, living at Twomileborris 

which is about 29 kilometres from Dualla (North East)
