Its been a long time Gene since we connected, hope you are well. I have just received my messages on here today as I have just returned from Ireland today. Of course another visit to Clare and Scattery Island.
Midnirdr1...I have copies of both books if you need any information. I seem to have only two Catherine Brennan in my records, born the the same family one born in 1894 and died as an infant, the other being born in 1896 and named after the previous child. Was wondering if you may have the same problem that I had when I was looking for my relative.....she was Catherine Melican born in 1845 in Kilbaha. Her Father John Melican was one of the river pilots who moved to Scattery. Catherine was a small child when the family moved there where they had further children, all raised on Scattery. Your Catherines year of birth could be a little early to be born on Scattery, as the Brennans also moved there from Kilbaha around the same time, although Melican was about 2 years later. There are no records for births in Kilbaha at this time unfortunately.You have most probably found this information on the clare site by now, but if you need any help just drop me a message.
Gene....Scattery is still as beautiful and peaceful as ever.
I went over on a private boat this time....and stayed all day !
