I am looking for information on the Prendergast and Toole (O'Toole)
families from Athy.
Margaret Toole (O'Toole) married Patrick Prendergast at I believe St
Mary's Parish, Athy around 1830's - they owned a saddlery business in
Duke Street Athy. They had a daughter Mary who became a founding member
of the Mercy order in New Zealand and later became Mother Mary Ignatius.
Margaret had a sister Mary Toole (O'Toole) who married Edmund Walsh on
the 27th January 1834 at St Johns Parish, Kilkenny. Pat Homes and Bridget
Walsh were the witnesses. Edmund and Mary Walsh (nee O/Toole) were my
Any help would be most appreciated.
