Hello Philip, It was good to hear from a distant Prendergast cousin. I found more info on my direct line on the County Kilkenny Ireland Genealogy web site. A link to the Rothe House Trust Ltd. has a searchable online database. With their help, I was able to find the townland (Ballinabarney) where my grandfather lived. It is in the RC parish of Inistioge, and the civil parish of The Rower. There is also a townland of Inistioge and a civil parish. Are you confused yet?
I have seen the IGI records for James Prendergast +Mary Kennedy and James Prendergast + Eliza Hunt. The National Archives of Ireland has the 1911 census. This might help you determine which of your line stayed in Ireland.
Good hunting! Stay in touch! Susan
