Douglas Patrick ( Bridgeport, Texas , USA )

Visited Belturbet and Drumlane Abbey in November. Had a wonderful time, everyone was great, tried to find some information on ancestor Edward Fitzpatrick, born February 1760, and ended up in North Carolina by the 1770's. Any help would be great. Very friendly people we met, Maura at Church View guest house, Declan Fitzpatrick for some family history, and the group at the Widows Pub. Will definately be back!

Pt2. Patrick's brother James born c1839 left for the colony of Queensland and married Roseanne Fitzpatrick the daughter of Thomas and Mary Fitzpatrick of Feugh Maxwell. James died in Sydney, Aus and was exhumed later and his remains were returned to Ireland and buried at Staghall. I am also looking for a cousin Fr O'Reilly who was present at James and Roseanne daughter's funeral - Sr Mary Canice (Kathleen Fitzpatrick)of Carrickmacross. In the book Staghall A History, there is a reference to a Fr Pat O'Reilly of Uragh who had connections to Fitzpatricks in the parish. If anyone is able to shed any light on this I would be very grateful. A group of us from Aus and America will be in Belturbet in Jul/Aug 2013 for a reunion and we would love to connect with anyone who may be related.

Congratulations on a great website. My ancestors came from Derravona in Drumlane very near the Bloody Pass. I will be returning in July/Aug 2013 with family members from Australia and America, in response to the call to gather and I have offically registered our reunion "Descendants of Daniel Fitzpatrick and Mary Cosgrove" with The Gathering 2013 website. I am hoping that someone may be able to help with my research. Daniel and Mary's eldest son Patrick remained on the farm in Derravona while many of his siblings left for the colonies and our party are some of their descendants. Patrick had 3 children who all died unmarried and the farm was sold shortly before Jimmy the 2nd son died. The eldest son was Monsignor Daniel Fitzpatrick died in Cootehill in 1968 where he was Parish Priest.
