RC Baptism Records for Caher Feakle (Killanena) Parish, 1842-1881
Parish is also known as Killanena.
The only complete pre-famine year shown in the first register is 1846
– but this most valuable record is enough to show the effect of
the famine on Caher. There were over 200 baptisms recorded that year –
about four times the number recorded yearly during in the 1850s.
A note on the names of the townlands (residences): sometimes only the
first few letters of the name are to be seen; whether this is because
the priest shortened the name, or because the rest of the name is lost
in the binding, cannot be said.
Transcriber failed to distinguish between Brody and Brady,
and other similar surnames.
