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
Would like to get back in touch with the o'reilly family at cloncose in cornafean. email@example.com thanks

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.
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.
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!!
I am a descendant of James and Margaret McCormick, buried at Drumlane Abbey, and John Smith and Rose Fitzpatrick Smith, who farmed at Derrygeeraghan in the 1860's. Returning to Ireland in August 2013. Looking for relatives--My Smith ancestors lived around Belturbet. Would love to meet any descendants of the above named couples!
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.

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!
Great site. Just checking back to see if anyone remembers a Peter Shannon from Milltown, County Cavan. Visited there several years ago and found his grave in Drumlane Abbey. Any info would be of great help. My GG Grandfather, Felix Shannon came to the US in the 1800 and lived in PA.
