Mulholland - Wright

In December 2008, the following request came through the GUESTBOOK

Am trying to research the Mulholland Family who lived in Corcreany, Tullylish. My father James Mulholland was born there in 1893. I am particularly interested in getting my great grandparents wedding certificate. Their names were John Mulholland and Esther (or Catherine) Wright. I think they would have married around 1835. Any advise would be gratefully received. Patricia Evers.

After a lot of 'searching' through the parish registers/ Griffith Valuations etc., we found the site of the original homestead of John Mulholland in Corcreaney and a lot of information on the descendants. .

Patricia and her two sisters Brigid and Anne came from Dublin to the Parish Office on Thursday 20th August.

L- R Anne, Patricia and Brigid.

They were delighted to see their father's (James Mulholland) baptism recorded in the registers.

The Mulholland's funeral entry recorded that they were buried in the Clare cemtery. Even though there is no headstone, it was nice for the three ladies to see the church in which their great grandparents were married and are laid to rest.


Standing on the 'hallowed soil' of their ancestral homestead in Corcreaney.

We are still looking for any information on the Mulholland/Wright connnection.
