Phil And Kitty Cronin

Phil Cronin is a Millstreet man his wife Kitty is from Kildare
And amongst the Irish Community east of Melbourne they are a well known pair
Kind hearted and good people and surely nice to know
And a credit to that misty green Isle where the tree leaved shamrock grow.
.
Phil loves to talk of Millstreet Town and and the people he knew there
Some of the boys and girls he went to school with like he did went to live elsewhere

Mitchells in Millstreet

Hello, I am looking for any info on the Mitchells of Millstreet circa 1830-60s. I know that there were 2 brothers Michael Patrick and Dennis. I believe Dennis was born around 1838 and Michael around 1842. I was wandering if someone could possibly tell me how many Catholic parishes there were in the area at that time? I would like to see if they have any records of the Mitchells.
Thank you for your help, John Burgess email:<email>
