Both my husband and I have family who migrated to Australia in late 1800's from this area - Cavanagh's from Drumlane and Bowes from Monaghan. We hope to travel there in the near future to see this beautiful country.

I have been having fishing holidays in Belturbet and Arva for over 30years.Started doing my family tree in 2002 and discovered to my delight my GT/GM Ann Seery(parents Patrick and Susan)was born in the parish of Drumlane.Ann married my GT/GF Edward German/Jermyn(father Isaac) in St Albans RC church Liverpool 1871.Edward was also born in Ireland 1847.Besides Co Cork most Jermyns seem to come from Cavan.Do any local historians know of the name and if maybe Ann and Edward eloped to Liverpool to marry.I believe this was done in those times.I have noticed the number of Germyns in the COI Belturbet graveyard but can make no connection.Will keep looking at Website.

Great to have found a site about Drumlane. I have visited the area often looking for records of my ancestors - names like Gregg, Tilson, Armstrong, Henderson etc etc - my father was born and reared at Derryhoo - the old house now demolished and the Goode family live there now I believe. Am sorry to see that the whole area is changing dramatically this past while - I suppose that is "progress" I never lived in Co. Cavan but I love to visit Drumlane and area and always feel at home. People are so friendly. Thelma (Gregg) Matthews

I visited Miltown and surrounding area a few months ago. My g-g-grandparents, John Smith and Rose Fitzpatrick Smith, farmed 8 acres in Derrygeeraghan in 1860's-1880's. Would anyone know how I could locate the site of that farm (leased from Earl Annesley.) Or where they are buried? I checked Drumlane Abbey, Staghall, and Miltown cemeteries. Are there any other little Catholic cememteries around Derrygeeraghan? Anyone know of any living descendants in the area? Thank you so much.

I found your site very interesting. My wife and I were fortunate to visit Drumlane & Milltown a few years ago.Both of my parents were from Milltown, Mother, Mary Anne BURNS from Drumanhy Rahan and Father Terence Farrelly from Garfiny. They came to Australia in early 1900s.
