I am looking to find details of my ancestors that were situated in Oughterard from at least 1829 when my 3rd great-grandfather Peter Savage married the widow Mary Ryan (nee Larner).

Peter is thought to have been training for the ministry or a reverend/minister and converted to catholicism to marry Mary. Though I do not know of which denomination. It is also thought that he traveled from Co.Down or Co.Antrim to do this.

My 2nd great-grandfather Richard is buried in the Kilcummin cemetery and is listed in the headstones database.

I would like to find out more about Peter and Mary and their origins and also any information about the Savage family borne from this marriage and if they exist in Oughterard today.

Many thanks in advance.
