John Carroll & Mary Ferrigan Marriage Record

The National Library of Ireland has online Catholic Church Parish Records, such as are onĀ  microfilm at PRONI. I was checking to see what I should search for in Belfast when I am there and lo and behold, here is the primary reason I was heading to PRONI.

You will see there is no information in the original record as to who are the parents of John Carroll and Mary Ferrigan. They were married on 20 SEP 1860 at the Roman Catholic Church in Hilltown, Clon(d)uff Parish in the Diocese of Dromore, County Down in Northern Ireland.
