Hi Patrick

The microfilm of the original parish registers for Daingean are online at:

I had a quick look and found the christening of Bridget in 1852.  The parish registers head back to 1795 for Christenings and 1820 for marriages.

You may have to wade through page by page (yes, the old fashioned research method) and have a basic understanding of Latin, but, if the family came from this area then you are in good fortune.

Good luck


Thanks Dale.  I found Bridget's baptism in the Daingean original parish register.  No luck yet for Thomas Daniel Quinn and Anne Murphy's marriage or baptisms.

No problems at all, Patrick.  I did not see them either, but.....I only had a quick look.  Did you note the little map on the right hand side when you are at the landing page for Daingean?  I have used that to know which other parishes to search for other queries.  Perhaps just wade through the surrounding parishes for the marriage, and/or Daniel and Ann's christenings.  Good luck!!

Thanks Chris.  Anything earlier than 1824, his parents, for example?
