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.

Love to visit my family in Milltown. Great place, great people, great pub!

Did I mention it's great,oh yes, and Paddy Lawlor is really a pioneer, does a great job of hiding it!!

Well done to Drumlane on their win over Ballyhaise at the weekend. There is just no giving in in those players and it's a great start to the new season.

On another point, I think it's very ironic that someone by the name of Kevin Barry lives in Derrylaughan. I don't know of any Daniel O'Connells in Drumlane. Fair enough Kevin if yous are known just known as Derrylaughan, but I don't think you can expect the club to get it right seeing as we'd never heard of yous before, as the challenge games were organised by our new enthusiastic co-coach Oliver Fay.

It's not the case every time. I only know Pat Gilroy's club in Dublin as St Vincent's - I couldn't tell you the area - and from what I heard a lot of the players still don't know the area they were in Tyrone @ the end of last month!

Great website, particularly for people like me who are thinking of moving to the area. Having initially been undecided I have to say that this website has really made up my mind for me - the community in Milltown / Drumlane seems to be so active and vibrant that it seems like the ideal place to bring up a family ! Thanks.

Chcek link for championship draw from official Tyrone GAA website( Cheers and all the best for the coming season hopefully we can have the same friendly as senior teams next season or meet in the Ulster Club Intermediate championship this year !

Well done to Daryl on his win at the weekend with John Mitchel's of Liverpool.

Hopefully he will get plenty of support from his native club when Mitchel's take on the Kerry champions on Feb 14 in Croke Park! Wishing you the best of luck!

Everytime I read the historical information, I feel like I am walking amongst those that lived at that time.
I last wrote in Aug of this year 2008.

I am trying to find the grave of Mary Reilly. She died in Aug of 1902, I believe the 6th. She lived with her family in Cranaghan until her death.

I think that since Mary Reilly, and her husband Charles Reilly, were wed in the old Drumlane Parish in Aug of 1838, that they are probably interred there. Is there anyone in the area that makes a hobby of, or is interested in, locating headstones? I would love to see the cemetery myself but can not afford to do so. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your help in Aug. Brendan. I'll be talking to Father Dan soon.

Merry Christmas to all!!!!!
