Thank you so much for your helpful information. 
We were finally able to access the Clare website, which has been fascinating for Brian. 
He remembers many of the family names mentioned. 
Brian is indeed the brother of Eamon and Dirk Campbell from “The Clare” farm. 
We are particularly interested in the Magennis family
who seem prominent in the local history of the area,
as Brian’s Grandmother was Catherine Magennis.  

Many thanks again.

I am very interested in obtaining a copy of the history of the The 
Clare which is referred to as a link from your website pages, but which is 
showing as an unavailable page.  I understand that this history was 
written by a Mr Plunkett Campbell and will be of great interest to my 
husband Brian Campbell, whose family had a farm at the Clare.
 
Yours sincerely

Hi,
I'm trying to trace the whereabouts of ancestors who lived in 
Tullylish. MY GGG-Grandfather was called John Keenan his wife was Ann (nee) 
Lindsay . His children were Thomas,William and Ellen. Thomas married 
Cecilia (nee) Mc Caffrey in St.Johns in Guilford around 1852 . In 1854 they 
both left to go to work in the mills in Johnstone, Scotland. I'm 
struggling as to what happened to his parents John and Ann. If any one could 
shed any light I would very grateful. If any Keenans read this ,please 
get in touch it would be great to hear from you. Any info no matter how 
small wuold be great .
Thanks,
John Keenan.

Web site is an excellent way to keep in touch. As we will soon have 
only one mass in each chapel on Sundays it would be helful if mass times 
in other chapels nearby are also posted. The link to the Dromore Diocese 
is good but I don't think it's up to date e.g. Father Powell is still 
on the Lurgan web site.

I have been looking at the pictures, its just the best website,
some of the people I know and some were very young when I left.
The wedding pictures were beautiful.
It keeps me connected even though I did not go to your church. 
I do know Jullianne Gaillard and her brother Armand very well
and of course  her late mother.

Marsha

I am from Gilford. I went to school at Craigavon Primary School
and Lou, my brother, lived in Gilford and is buried in Tullylish.
We lived on 4 Stramore Road Gilford. Daddy was policeman years and years ago.
I do love reading about home.
I used to sing in the children’s choir and the adult choir in
Gilford Presbyterian Church and I went to Sunday school there.
(I still have my bible that I got for good attendance  - in 1949, I was 4 years old)

Thanks for answering my e-mail.
Marsha.

I am looking forward to the chapel in Gilford being reopened in the 
near future. Did you know that the grotto at St. John's was built by a 
local Gilford man, the late Mr. Don McCready (Church of Ireland)?  Around 
1991, with permission from Canon Trainer, Mrs. Sadie Gaillard gave the 
financial donation for the grotto to be built in memory of her late 
sister Miss Annie Hamill. In May of that year, along with the help of 
local parishioners - Mr. Owen Finnegan, Armand Gaillard and the late Martin 

Finnegan, Don built the grotto in the chapel yard.
