Searching for Towey and Carty Relatives.


I am hoping that you can give me some information before I visit Ballaghaderreen next Summer.

I have been tracing my family tree for some time and found out that my great,great grandfather MARTIN CARTY lived in Kiltobranks and was married to CATHERINE TOWEY on 26th March 1853. All of his children lived in Kiltobranks too until they came over to Liverpool in the late 1800s.

Catherine continued to live at 11 Kiltobranks until her death as she was still living there on the 1901 census.

I would love to find out what church they were married in so I can visit it with my children when we come on holiday.

Can you let me know the names of the Catholic churches in that area please around that time? The document that I have for the marriage does not give the name of the church 

Thank you so much
