Brown Family Of Marble Hill, Galway, Ireland

My great great grandparents were Patrick and Bridget (Coniry) Brown from Cloughoola, Marble Hills, County Galway. On the 1901 Census, their parish is given as Ballynakill in the Barony of Leitrim. They lived in a house owned by Mary McCormack.  I have found a total of nine children, most of which, including my gr grandfather, emigrated to America. (Lowell, Massachusetts and surrounding towns). One of the children that remained in Ireland was Catherine Brown. She married Michael Holleran in 1897 and they lived in Lagoo, which is near to Marble Hills. On the censuses, the reported Holleran children were John, Thomas, Bridget, Kate and Mary. I just returned from a trip to Ireland with my family, our fifth trip. This is the first visit where I had traced nearly all of my Irish ancestors and those of my husbands and we were able to visit the locations they were from but did not have the opportunity to speak with anyone who may have known of the families.  If any of the above is known to anyone here, I would appreciate anything you can share.
