I know that my great grandfather Paul H Moran and his wife Frances were both born in Newport, Co Mayo. Paul was about 8 years older than his wife and before they left Newport they had one child, a daughter, Mary Anne ( also known as Marian). The rest of their family was born in Dublin. Paul was a blacksmith.  If anyone has further information I would be most appreciative.
Many Thanks
