Looking for info on Carlow towns,especially Bagenalstown.,Newtown.,Boherduff.,Leighlinbridge.
I am tracing my husbands family...maternal side AUGHNEY..paternal side CURRAN.
I have got back as far as John Aughney(b.c1818..d 1907)m Alicia Rafter(b.c1821..d1901)..john down in 1901cencus as Blind.
Think his parents may have been James and Bridget.
On the Curran side,I have grandfather down as Michael Curran m Catherine(nee Byrne)..

Hi Elaine

Have you tried the Carlow blog on the Carlow web page. I'm sure they can help and there is a chap called Terry Curran who is very knowledge.

Kind Regards
