  Dromard & Skreen, Marriage Index 1848-51

This is an index of the names of the people who were married in the Roman Catholic parish of Dromard and Skreen during the  years 1848-51.   The following table of marriages is transcribed from Microfilm No. 4229 held online by the National Library of Ireland accessible through their Roman Catholic Parish Register Search page.   All names and surnames given here are as I read them.  This section of the register has some first names in Latin and some in English.

If any of you have a problem with the Latin names, then I have a document online which may be of some help.

Latin Names in English

My list is sorted by the surname of the groom.  Question marks indicate letters or words I had a problem reading.  The letters ‘sic’ indicate that is how I read the letters I have typed.
[ ] indicates that the letters within the brackets are my best guess at what the letters might be. In some instances when the Priest gave a shortened version of the first name in Latin he super scripted the last letter.  Sometimes he gave an a as that letter and other times an e

Townlands are given for both the man and woman in most instances.  In some cases no townland is given for the man when he was employed by the Revenue Police.
