My mother Margaret Stewart (nee Brady) was born in Gurteen Nr Killeshandra in 1917. She had 5 sisters and a brother, my Uncle Benny, who was the All Ireland Skittles Champ in the 1960's. We spent every summer in and around Milltown. It took a long time to get there from London in those days, unlike now, a hop over on the plane and a hired car. My parents retired to Drumlane in 1987. Interestingly (and not seen elsewhere) there are two adjacent gravestones in the cemetery( both STEWART)but we are not related, when many would assume were. I miss the farming of 50 years ago when almost everyone had a some acres and 12+ cows. To get to your local town was always a bike ride and a proper outing. I miss my uncle's funny remarks..e.g. "If doesn't rain between the showers, you'll be ok".

Hello and Happy New Year to the Drumlane Community. I would like to thank you all for your contribution to a very successful Fitzpatrick Gathering in 2013. There are so many people to thank, but I would like to make special mention of the following people: Rosemary and Martin Rowan, Declan Fitzpatrick, Benny and Bernie Corby, Tom Kennedy, Kevin Fay, Damien McDonald and Grainne McDonald. There were other people who contributed to this event but I have only mentioned those from this parish. I was fortunate to have also attended some of your Gathering events including the book launch, where I purchased multiple copies for the family, as well as copies of the walking book, I'm so glad that I did as it seems you have now sold out completely. Your kindness was very much appreciated.

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.

Hello, my son and I visited Milltown several years ago and wanted to get back for the Gathering but could not. Peter Shannon buied in Drumlane Abby is my distant relative. Felix and Mary Shannon came over to US in the early 1800. Philip Shannon, their son, my great Grandfather, fought in the American Civil War. Planning on going back next fall. Would like to hear from anyone that may have known the Shannon's

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!
