  Killeigh (Ballinagar, Nalnagar) Marriage Index 1859-61

This is an index of the names of the people who were married in the Roman Catholic parish of Killeigh during the  years 1859-61.   The following table of marriages is transcribed from Killeigh Microfilm No. 4203 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 first names in Latin.

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.  This, transcript while it covers a few years is actually very short, 32 marriages in all.  This section of the register was *very* difficult to read as you can see with all the question marks and blank spaces I have.  I worked on this register because I wanted to see the surnames because I have almost completely finished working on the gravestones in Killeigh (modern) public cemetery and I wanted to compare the parish records with the surnames in the graveyard.  The gravestones will be brought online in the next few weeks

Townlands are given but as with the rest of the register were *very* difficult to read.
