Looking for ancestors of Michael Mooney, born County Clare, Ireland around 1851. Michael immigrated to New Zealand, 1877.  He married Ellen Frill (nee Shannon) in 1888.  I think his father was Patrick Mooney and mother Mary Mooney nee Lenane.  Can anyone tell me how I can obtain a birth record for Michael and marriage record for Patrick and Mary.  What is the best way/site to obtain BDM records from Ireland.  Any help would be much appreciated.  Granya

Hi Granya,

I have recently ordered a birth certificate for my grand mother Nellie Mangan from Ireland, it was a little pricey ($AUD165) most of the price is in the registered post. Below is where i went to obtain my certificate

Hope this helps.

Incidently my great great grandfather was a Patrick Mooney not sure on his details but he and his wife Elizabeth Cullen also had a son Patrick born 1877, was wondering if they were related.
