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)


  1. Good luck with you search Kerryn. I have a gggrandmother born County Clare, Ireland, in 1836 and am facing similar probs. Cheers, Catherine

    1. a frustrating challenge isn't it Catherine. Good luck to you too.

  2. Good luck in your research. This is a great blogging community. I've been in Geneabloggers about four months. It has been a learning experience. I'm into research, but felt it was time to write more of what I am finding. At Christmas I found a document on my ancestor, I never expected to find. It was fun sharing "An Early Christmas Gift" on my blog. Good luck in your research with the Mulloughn surname. It's good to post about it and label it. Hopefully somebody might see it when they are on the internet.
