I stumbled upon your Hollingsworth blog today.
Likely some of our ancestor folk were neighbours.
My Redmond folk lived in Hollyfort, Co. Wexford. William Redmond, widower of Alice (nee Brennan d.1847), came to Canada about 1849. He and son John are found in the 1852 Canadian census and his two daughters Mary andy Jane were reunited with their father and brother before 1861. The Hollyfort records show and elder brother Joseph who apparently did not emigrate with the family.

There are Redmond in the Ballycanew records. Our particular Redmond were Church of Ireland so I suppose that there is a good possibility that they were related to our folk.
