Leighlinbridge, Carlow to Ontario

I've found some links to Leighlinkbridge.

John Brennan and Mary Rice's 3-4 youngest children were baptized at St. Lazrian's, Leighlinbridge.

In 1851 they are in Beckwith, Lanark County, Ontario.

Next to them is widowed Catherine Roach. Two of her children have her maiden name listed as Brennan (father's name John Roach).

"They Came to Mara" has a bio on her son Thomas, who married Cecelia McGrath of Holland Twp and then more to Mara. It says that Catherine Brennan Roach was living in Glenelg by 1861. Thomas' tombstone states he was born in Carlow.

I believe that Catherine's daughter Bridget Roach is the same Bridget Roach who married Andrew Priel, as I have information from a contact that Bridget's mother's maiden name was Brennan.
