- Fedamore Parish Limerick -
The following information is from my own transcriptions of the Fedamore parish records
microfilms available online at the National Library of Ireland website. These records are
hard to read in parts and at time illegible. Some are written in a form of Latin. I have
anglicised names where possible. I have not always included the witnesses or sponsors. I have
used the spelling of the surname as it was recorded in the record. This appears to have
differed depending on the writer. I recommend that you check back with the original microfilms
as I can not guarantee the accuracy of my transcriptions.
I have attempted to arrange the records into family groups. Please check all the pages for
possible ancestors. They can be accessed via the navigation button 'Fedamore Houlihans'
above. My own ancestors are Patrick Houlihan and Margaret Cavanagh.
If you are connected to any of these families I would love to hear from you. All comments,
corrections or suggestions are welcome. Email
