In 1855 Galway there were 83 occupiers of land with the name Rabbitt. 5 of these are James Rabbitt's. 104 Dillon's in Galway, depending on the dates this maybe their parents. See www.askaboutireland.ie

None are listed with Castleblakenay but Castleblakenay is also a Union where all parish's, townlands, villages within a 12 mi. radius are located. An administrative area for the Poor Law Union and later Civil Registration Districts.

Civil registration Ireland 1864-1875

No children listed for James Rabbit and Honora Dillon?

There are James Rabbit's born between 1861-1867.

Perhaps some of these might fit.

If before 1864 you need to try an Irish History Foundation for Parish records. Galway is divided genealogically into
East and West and both are members, like most Irish genealogy records are not free although the Foundation is
a not for profit.

After 1864 civil registrations like above are available on the Latter Day Saints website www.familysearch.org and records are available there to about 1950's.

If were still in Ireland by 1901/1911
www.census.nationalarchives.ie

There are several Rabbit/Rabbitts in the commercial directories for Galway.

Castle-Blakeney was described in 1846 as a small post-town
and Parish. The parish was also known as Gallagh or Killosolan. 31 M. from Galway and 16 1/2 from Athenry on the
road to Tuam.

Roderick Rabbitt, was Post Master in 1846.

5 Rabbitt's in the current Galway phone book 2 in Athhenry
area. A few stamps and letters might prove successful.
