No relation, but just incase the name Breen isn't picked up
on this message board KERRY you should also post to the CORK board.
Cork is divided into two parts for genealogy purposes
South West and North East. The North East area well to the east of Cork City belongs to an Irish History Foundation with baptism and marriage records. This is a not for profit but fee paying website. You can find some free information on these two websites.www.censusfinder.com
Church Records of Baptism and marriage records for Cork can be found on www.irishgenealogy.ie
There are large numbers of Breen's in the phone book for the surname Breen, try matching locations with the Poor Law Union or Civil Registration Town.
There were no Maurice Breen's in the Griffith Valuation for Cork in 1854. However, there are 20 listed in the
valuation in Co. Kerry in 9 Parish's. www.askaboutireland.ie
is a good resource for the Griffith Valuation
Directories are also occasionally an effective way of filling in some gaps. This is too late for you but does show the effort made to keep the name in the family.
