  1. To quote Riobard O'Dwyer: "During the research work there were numerous problems connected with the older records in the Parish register. About 200 people were never entered in the records - so many children were baptized at home in those difficult times that it is understandable that some names would be forgotten. Also in the records, grandparents and godparents were sometimes put down as parents; boys were put down with girl's names at times, and vice-versa; twins were put down as being born on dates as much as two months apart (those pregnancies should have gone down in the Guinness Book of Records); a man was put down as the mother of a child; two men were coupled as the husband of a woman; children were recorded as having been born twice; and to cap it all, a man from Kilmacowen was, through an error in the parish records, put down as having been married 72 years before he was born!"
