Sandrine,I looked at the Irish census and found the following:

1901 Cuilmore,Caraun,Mayo

James Fallon age 77 head of house,farmer
Rose Fallon age 77,wife
James Fallon son,age 40
Mary Fallon age 42,daughter in law
Kate Fallon age 13 gchild
Thomas Fallon age 11 gchild
Patrick Fallon age 9 gchild
Rose Fallon age 9 gchild
David Fallon age 8 gchild
Fergus Fallon age 4 gchild
Michael Fallon age 4 gchild
Mary Fallon age 2 gchild

also found 3 Mary Conroys living with one of their children in the 1911 census

also,in the Tithe Applotment books of 1824 for Crossboyne parish (which includes Claremorris) I found:

Patrick Conroy Meelick townland
Michael Fallon Mayfield townland
(these could be fathers to Patrick and James)

then looking at Griffiths Valuation,these appear:

Patrick Conroy
townland:Meelick

Patrick Conroy
townland:Roosky

Daniel Conroy(a brother?)
townland:Coolmakean

Michael Fallon
townland:Carrownlough

Owen Fallon
townland:Carrowconor

all are in parish of Crossboyne

then back to 1901 census and there is a Patrick Fallon age 83 living with a son Edward 38,Kate daughter in law and 10 grandchildren.Could Edward be another child of James and Rose?

also found these birth records:

David Fallon
born 29 July 1868 Ballindine,Claremorris
parents:James Fallon/Rose Donnelly

Rose Fallon
born:11 November 1865 Ballindine,Claremorris
parents:James Fallon/Rose Donnelly

James fallon
born:20 August 1866 Ballindine,Claremorris
parents:James Fallon/Rose Donnelly

What I would suggest is to go to your nearest LDS(Latter day Saints)library and go through the parish registers for Ballindine,Claremorris which would be under Crossboyne/Tagheen.I will tell you some of them are hard to read and they are far from complete.Also,www.mayoancestors.com has a birth record for a Patrick Conry 1830 South Mayo and a birth record for Mary Begly 1828 North Mayo.I cannot be sure they are yours but it is a possibility.If you cannot get the parents try working via their children/brothers/sisters.Also pay attention to names as this may lead to the correct parents as many followed the naming pattern.Part of my family comes from Ballindine,Claremorris and I know from experience it can be rewarding when you find what you are looking for but the records can be frustrating tooo.Good luck.Hope this helps,Kim
