My parents,grandparents,uncles and aunts (not all) are buried in Drumlane cemetery. My uncle, Benny Brady, was the All-Ireland skittles champion in the 1970's, winning the trophy in Cork (I recall). I have an engraving, done in late 1700's, of Drumlane Abbey, as it used to look before falling into ruin. Would be willing to send copy to those interested.

Great Website! I've hit a brick wall re my McGuigans from Cavan. I believe Owen and Philip McGuigan born around 1840 were brothers but cant prove it. Owen married in Drumlane in 1857 to Ann Rone and his parents were John and Roseann Sherry. Philip married 1862 to Mary Fitzpatrick. I would be so grateful if anyone could look up Philips marriage record and see if he shares the same parents as Owen. They were Catholic and later came to Scotland. Any help is very much appreciated. Regards Moira

Visited Belturbet & Monaghan in Aug. Couldn't find any more family history information in the short time there. Husband's great-grandparents were Edward Kavanagh (b.1846 Drumlane Parish Records)and wife Catherine Timmons. They had 6 children - John, James, Rose Ann, Mary Eliz., Margaret, Noral Ellen. They all left the area for Australia and England and married. We have no dates for death of Edward & Catherine or any info. on Timmons. We did meet a lovely elderly couple in Belturbet (Margaret & John Timmons) from Killylea but they are not related. My searches on the web are not being very fruitful. Does anyone know anything about the Kavanagh and the Timmons familes? Patricia McClafferty
