It's exciing to hear from someone with a connection to Taughmon Parish. However,since my ancestor Richard Brien was born in 1838 and his brother William born in 1830, we don't have a match.
In nearby Mullingar Parish, I also have a Richard, born in 1870, a Catherine born in 1880 and an Andrew (my grandfather) born in 1862.
