    Dear Fr. Crosby,
    Thanks for all your work. My request might not be too tough. I am searching for the maiden name of my paternal great grandfather’s mother. Frank (rarely Francis) Walsh and Margaret ? lived at 6 Brodullah South in Shrule and had Pat Frank, Margaret and Michael J. Walsh as living children. According to the 1901 census, they all lived there then (and most of them still again in 1911) and it may be Frank died 1913 buried in your graveyard. I know the more recent occupants of that house are –Denis(died 1999) and Margaret Walsh (died 1992) Both plot Sec 2 Grave 67 and both of whom I met many times. I cannot find (Frank’s wife) Margaret’s maiden name (she was born around 1841. I am trying to get my grandfather’s birth certificate (he was born around Dec 15, 1888) and emigrated from Shrule at age 17 in 1905. Without his mother’s maiden name, I am, according to Irish records, sunk. I can’t find a baptismal record (may have had no money–they were illiterate farmers) nor anything except your graves and the census. Any help would be appreciated. I’ll send you a donation for your assistance and put you in the book I’m writing (that’s what I do for a living!) Thanks again

      New Parish Priest in Shrule is Fr. Val Loughrey ( see shruleparish.ie for details ).
      Have you tried death records for the missing details or pension search forms can also be helpful .
      Also look in neighbouring Parishs in case they are recorded there instead .
      Shrule is on the Mayo/Galway border so this could be an issue.
      Hope that helps
      Regards

  2. Can anyone tell me more information about the monument at the front of the church that looks like a “pinecone.” It is directly in front of plot 535. Thanks so much!

    Dear Fr. Michael Crosby,

    Thank you so much for this valuable work. I believe the second photo on this page depicts my great great grandfather’s grave site. I am traveling with my parents in Ireland soon and plan to be in Shrule on April 10. We’d love to thank you in person and learn anything else we can about the family.

    Best wishes,
    Angela Casey

    Looking for my husband family that had a farm in Ballenrobe. I think all the brothers came to Chicago but his sister stayed behind and she and her husband took over the farm. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you

    Thank you for doing this. My great grandmother, Margaret Mellett, was born in Shrule and emigrated for the United States. The gravestone of her brother Patrick is pictured here. I hope to come to Shrule one day to try to find more about the family.
