First wedding

The first wedding in the new church is thought to have taken place on 28th April 1872, between Murtagh Murphy of Ballycowan, Tullamore, Co. Offaly, and Mary O’Connor of Robertstown, the grandparents of Essie Conroy of Lowtown Lock.

It is likely that the first children baptised in the new church were Michael Sutherland, Barnacrow, son of Ben Sutherland and Catherine Dunne; Dominick Sheridan of Pollardstown, son of Dominick Sheridan and Kate Dowling; and John Bagnall of Allenwood, son of John Bagnall and Mary Kelly.

 

These children were baptised on 14th April, 21st April, and 28th April 1872.
