Classification: Query
Surnames: Folan

My Folan's are also from Loughaunbeg, Selerna.
My great great grandfather's name was Martin Folan. He married Mary Ridge from Derrykyle in 1881 and according the the marriage cert Martin's father was called Thomas Folan.
The family never moved from Loughaunbeg.

As far as I know they had 7 children ~ one boy Patrick and 6 girls, Mary (Connolly), Ann(Concannon), Delia, Kate(Flaherty), Sarah(Thornton) and Lizzie (Hernon).
As far as I know Patrick and Delia didn't marry.

I found Martin and Mary Folan's grave on a visit to Galway a few weeks ago. Their children Patrick and Delia are buried with them. There was another person buried there in 2003 which I can't make sense of at all.

If anyone can help with the name of Martin's mother or brothers and sisters names - I would be very grateful.
