I am researching the family of my maternal great-great-greatgrandfather, James Ryan, originally from Pallasgreen, Co Limerick but he & family ended up on a farm in Dromalty, Cappamore, nearby.
His brothers were (not necessarily in birth order) Jeremiah (Kilduff Castle), Michael (Kilduff Castle), Daniel (Corelish), Maurice (Corelish), Matthew (Brackyle) & Philip (blacksmith & wagonmaker). The locations where they lived were noted by my gg-grandmother, Catherine Ryan Hodges, dictating to her daughter in the late 1800's. However, she had left Dromalty in 1848, so the locations were not necessarily current, as she did not stay in touch with her Irish family.
In researching the Matthew Ryan name in Pallasgreen area, I found the following family, and wonder if it might be "my" Matthew Ryan:
Matthew Ryan & Bridget Raleigh (Rawley), married 6 Mar 1832, Pallasgreen.
Children, all born Pallasgreen Parish:
