A cousin has passed to me a copy of the Galbally
Baptismal Register which lists the children
of Michael Daly (farmer) and Mary O'Brien. See an adjacent link.
Galbally is described by another genealogist
as "one of Ireland's most picturesque villages situated in
the majestic Glen of Aherlow and just nine miles from Tipperary
Town. The village won the overall National Tidy Towns Award in
1994. Galbally is an ideal location for a wide variety of activities.
It has indoor facilities for badminton and handball, outdoor tennis
and basketball and a number of sports fields for rugby, soccer
and Gaelic games. Galbally is also an ideal base for hill walking
and guided or mapped walks can be arranged."
The author continues and describes "Glen
of Aherlow (the valley of the River Aherlow) extends about 15
miles from Bansha in the east to Galbally in the west and is between
the Galty Mountains and the Slieve na Muck hills. The Coach Road
provides a beautiful view of the area from the statue of Christ
the King, which was erected by the local community. The church
of Christ the King is located in Galbally. This route was used
by Bianconi's Coaches which were the first to offer public transportation
in Ireland. The glen was an important pass between Tipperary and
Limerick, and became a hideout for the "Raparee", the
Irishmen who were dispossessed of their lands and became outlaws."
