Early 1800's Claffey excerpts from LDS film 127922:
Catholic Parish of Moate and Mount Temple covered parts of the civil
parishes of Kilcleagh in Westmeath, Kilmanaghan in Offaly, and
Ballyloughloe in Westmeath. It was formerly known as Kilcleagh and
There are three chapels:
St. Patricks in Moate, St. Kierans in Castledaly and Corpus Christi in Mount
These parish registers are in Latin and my guess as to the English translation is in
parenthesis. There are many other Claffey's listed that I did not have time to
make note of.
