Fermoy church was built in 1810-11. The Original church was quite small and was extended in 1843. Further extensions was built in 1867. In 1967-69 reordering of the sanctuary took place.
Came down to West Cork Easter about two years ago from Waterford. All my grandmothers family are buried in the old graveyard here. Great trip, one I'll never forget. :D
Hello Jim and Donald, my husband's great grandfather, Michael Farrell was baptized in Rathcormac per baptism record by same priest, C.O Donovan in 1843. His parents are Patrick Farrell and Margaret English. Sponsors: John Ryan and Johanna Twohill. Transcription said the address was Boherbee. Haven't been able to figure out where that is except for a town NW of Mallow, which doesn't make sense. I find the structure rather confusing. They left Cork during the famine in abt. 1847 for Arthur, Canada and eventually Mike and wife Mary Finnegan immigrated to U.S., Wrightstown, Brown Co., WI. Did you try the Mallow Heritage site on line now? It's just a transcription but a start. Good Luck. Gloria Farrell
