Maggie; I went over the Kilcullen names we copied at the Register’s Office and I think this will help a great deal, this is what we found; Children born Kilcullen and all registered in Dromore West; Bridgett, mo. maiden name Kivlehan, born Feb. 1, 1920 Francis S., mo. maiden name Kivlehan, born Dec. 15, 1907 The following had mother’s maiden spelled differently but may be same; Bernard, mo. maiden name Kivlaghan, born April 7, 1917 Mary, mo. maiden name Kinehan, born Jun 24 1911 Thomas, mo. maiden name Kinelan, born May 18, 1913 John, mo. maiden name Kinelan, no birth date
Bridget, Francis and Bernard are definately related, but I’m not too certain about the other three, providing my sister-in-law copied the mother’s name correctly.
Most of the early indexes the years are broken up into quarters and those would only list the name and place of birth and vol. and page numbers. I had copied the following record from the 1878 birth indexes; Quarter ending March 31, 1878 Bernard Kilcullen, Dromore West, vol. 4, page 237. If this is your Bernard then this means he was born between Jan. 1 of 1878 and Mar. 31, 1878.
Because the birth is registered in Dromore West it doesn’t mean that’s where the birth occured. I don’t quite understand how the towns are broken up in Ireland. The following is from a copy of a couple of records that we recieved and it shows the hierarchy of the towns; 1872. Births Registered in the District of Easky in the Union of Dromore West in the County of Sligo. And I have a marriage record which records the church at Kilglass, Distr. of Castleconnor, Union of Dromore West and Co. Sligo.
We found my wife’s Kilcullens baptism records in the the Parish of Castleconnor. Anyhow, Castleconnor, Easky, Innishcrone, Culleens, Glan, Dromore West and other numerous small towns are all in the same area and are located on the coast of Co. Sligo south of Sligo town.
