Church Record Sunday - Clondrohid Parish, Ireland

This is part of a Catholic parish register dated April 1847 in Clondrohid Parish, Ireland. Patrick and Mary Creeden were sponsors for a Timothy born to Denis Mahony and Catherine Creedan on April 22, 1847. My 3x great-grandparents Patrick and Mary Creedan had their daughters Julia and Honora baptized in Clondrohid, so it's possible they're the sponsors on this record.

There are several Creedens listed on this register. I've spelled the names as they were spelled on the register.

April 20 - Timothy, parents John Ring and Margaret Creeden, sponsors Con Shea and Julia Creedan
April 22 - Timothy, parents Denis Mahony and Catherine Creedan, sponsosrs Patt Creeden and Mary Creeden
April 25 - Daniel, parents Timothy Creedan and Catherine Hargan, sponsor Mary Lyhane

The Catholic parish registers are available on the National Library of Ireland site.
