This means that from 1864 it should be possible to find a church Baptism record as well as a civil birth record.
In this parish nick names are given which is unusual and interesting, for example, Peggy for Margaret and Ned for Edward. If you are unsure of what the legal name is look in this section on Rootsireland.
In this parish the priests did not put lots of crosses and comments to indicate moral failings. There were some illegitimate births noted as such but not the labeling of “Bastard” so common in parishes like Drom & Inch.
I have also included baptisms with a Fanning godparent. In this parish addresses were given, which is unusual and a bonus, so it is possible to work out where family groups lived. The most numerous Fanning family lived in the townland of Knockahorna.

Fanning marriage records for Bourney & Corbally Catholic Parish in Co Tipperary & Co Offaly: 28 June 1836- 1880. This parish is in the Diocese of Killaloe.
These marriage records are taken from the National Library of Ireland parish registers, which are online and free.
Variant forms of the parish name are Corbally, Bournea & Couraganeen.
Rootsireland is an excellent subscription service with search options. Makes using the free National Library records much easier. Rootsireland has Cournageen (Bourney) Parish marriage records from 1836-1880, with 1873 missing.
Irish civil marriage records from 1864 and older than 75 years are online and free at irishgenealogy.ie
I have included any marriage records with a Fanning bride or groom or witness. While anyone could be a witness, from my experience, the witnesses are nearly always related.

21 Feb 1857, William Fannon & Sera Guidera, wit: Philip Fannon & Johanna Guidera. This couple emigrated to New Zealand with most of their children. I have written a post about them, William Fanning and Sarah Guidera.
I noticed that from the time of William and Sarah’s marriage in 1857 within three days two other Guidera marriages had taken place.
Between Feb 1857 and Feb 1863, a total of eight Guideras had married. I wonder if these marriages were prior to emigration.
22 Jan 1859, Dan Quinlon & Judith Hamill, wit: Tom Fannon & Mary Hamill
14 Feb 1895, Bourney Civil Marriage record. William Fanning, age 28, farmer of Loran & Margaret Coonan of Ashmere, age 26. His father William Fanning, her father Michael Coonan. Witnesses were Michael Hardgrove & Mary Coonan. Married in Couraganeen RC Church.
After 1867 there were so few marriages one wonders if this was the result of the famine and mass emigration from this parish.
I looked through these baptism records as William Fanning and his brother Philip married two Eviston women, most likely sisters, from Loughmore Parish.
My Fannings are related to the Evistons. So I was interested to see if there might be a connection to the Fannings from Lissaroon. I couldn’t find anything to indicate this other than Martin Eviston’s involvement.
Philip Fanning married Mary Eviston on 31 Jan 1822 in Loughmore Parish. William Fanning married Ellen Eviston on 27 Jan 1825 also in Loughmore Parish.
