Tracing my Mother's Roots: Sarah Walsh

I am doing research on my mother’s family who was from the area.  Her father’s name was John Walsh (attached photo). There were four daughters Mary Walsh, Bridget Walsh, Sarah Walsh and Kate Walsh.  Mary and my mother, Sarah, immigrated to the United States and Bridget (aka Bridie) and Kate immigrated to England. I am going to be in Ireland next week with a tour group from church and will be staying in Galway for a couple of nights. I would love to visit Ballinrobe and visit the area where my mother told me about years ago. Is there any information you could provide that would confirm that I have the correct Sarah Walsh or could you refer me to any other resource? My aunt Mary’s birth records shows her birth year was 1909 (which I know is correct) and the Registration District as Oughterard, County Galway. My mother, Sarah, birth records shows her correct birthyear as 1910 and  the Registration District as Ballinrobe. Not sure where the family resided. My mother talked about both County Galway and County Mayo. My mother was also related (I believe) to a family whose last name was Casey (Delia & Martin). Thank you, Donna M. O’Shea
