Thank you to George Wilson, historian by Carol Flett from .
30. May 2019
Thank you to George Wilson, All Saints' parish historian. I visited All Saints' cemetery on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 and met with George, his wife Noel, two members of the Vestry and the rector.. I found my great-grandfather's family headstone which confirmed the information I found on Ancestry.com. George did further research and found my great-grandfather's baptismal record. I feel truly connected to All Saints' Parish. Thank you for the conversation and email messages.
George is a gentleman and always so helpful when I need information. Our two churches work very closely together in all historical matters.

In reference to a fairly aged note (4.4.2013) from Harry McConville (New Zealand) referring to the marriage of his great-great grandfather James McComish. My great-great grandfather Daniel McConville married Sarah McComish on 16.9.1852 and they migrated to Australia in 1855. I have written a family history after 3 visits to Gilford and assistance from the Tullylish Parish. If you wish to contact me, Harry: t_ogge@hotmail.com

Peter McConville in reference to your note on 30.4.2019. My great-great-grandfather, Daniel McConville (of Gilford, Townland Ballynagarrick) and his wife, Sarah, migrated to Australia in 1855. I have visited Gilford 3 times and searched church records and took notes on McConvilles from the graves of the 3 church yards. Peter, you may wish to contact me: t_ogge@hotmail.com Terence Ogge

For Anne Daly from Canada by Sheila Monaghan from Gilford
19. February 2019
Hi Anne, my husband Bill Monaghan and all his family were born in Gilford and I have collected some info on our family tree. Bill had an aunt who married a Sean Daly from Canada and I am hoping it might be the same family tree - I hope you can get in touch and maybe we can cross reference any info we have gathered. Looking forward to hearing from you. Bill & Sheila Monaghan
Thanks Sheila, I have forwarded your details to Ann.
For Anne Daly from Canada by Dave Vercelli from Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.

I've been doing some Monaghan research and found that a James Aloysius Monaghan lived at 32 Hill St, Gilford, in the 1911 Irish census. You can find that at the following site: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Down/Tullylish/Loughans/213354/. His parents appear to be Joseph Monaghan and Susan Travors and he was born 5 October 1879 in Ballymaghery, Down, Ireland. The only reference I can find to a Ballymaghery is near Hilltown. Hopefully, this is the person you are seeking. Good luck.
Thanks Dave

Catherine, Where Is Coyles Hill in Laurencetown? It was mentioned today in the history page of The Irish News Gerry

In Ireland Marriages 1619-1898 it states my ancestor JAMES McKEE (b 1825 in Loughans, Tullylish Parish, father was Thomas McKee) and SARAH KERNAGHAN (b 1829 in Ballymackallen, Tullylish Parish, father was Andrew Kernaghan)were married either Jan 4 1850 or Sept 4 1847 in Newmills Presbyterian Church in Tullylish Parish. They had a son named Thomas McKee in December of 1854 who was my great-grandfather. Do you have any further information about the McKee or Kernaghan family? I would be most appreciative as I have hit a stonewall in my search. Thank you so very much. Deborah

It is 60 years since I was last in Gilford at the age of 9.My father Daniel Quinn and his brother(my uncle) Joe were over to visit their Aunt Maggie(Quinn) McManus who lived in Hill St.Known locally as Keady Row I believe.Her brother was Michael Quinn and the family lived in Barrackhill Lawrencetown way back. Whilst we were there we also met her daughter Maggie Reilly,her husband John and their family.I remember Jim Reilly but can't remember his sisters names.Well it was 60 years ago. I also remember the West family.They all lived in Dunbarton Bungalows. I have some photos of back then when we were kids and just wondered if any of them still lived in the area. It would be nice to hear from them and if they remember our visit.Also I would appreciate any information about any Quinn's to whom I may be related it would make an old man from Glasgow very happy. Kind Regards..."Jimmy Quinn..........Glasgow.

Bann P.S. Sports Day by John Monaghan from St. Colman's Bann Primary School
10. June 2013
Catherine, thanks again for brilliant photos of school sports day last week. The children - and parents/grandparents all had a fantastic day. The big turn out of families really added to the "feelgood factor" A big thanks also to the Mums and Dads who ran in the parents' races. They were really up for fun! I loved the ice-cream van being there because eating ice cream was the only sport I was ever good at!
Thanks John - a great day was had by all.

I was wondering if anyone knows how Miss Mackin, Master Rooney and Principal McBreen are doing....it's 40 years since I was at BannPS. Haven't been back but I often wonder how things have changed.
Hi Brian I don't remember a Miss Mackin or a Master Rooney, but maybe someone else will. Principal McBreen passed away many years ago (R.I.P.)
