Hi, My great-grandfather was Michael Byrne, he was born in 1846. His parents were William Byrne, farmer and Sarah Hughes. Michael was born at the church in Castletown, Ballytarsna, Pike of Ruehall, Portaloise, County Laios. I do not know anything about this area. His sponsers were John Moore and Ann Bridges.
Were their many Byrne families in this area. Were they related?????
