My wee brother by Dolores O'Neill (nee O'Dowd) from Tullydagan Road, Lurgan
18. September 2011
Hello Catherine Got a telephone call from my brother Gerard today who directed me to the website to look at the photos of John back at school. Felt very proud to see him but also to see Mrs O'Hare or Miss McNeill as I knew her when she taught me. I loved her she was a brilliant teacher and so glamorous, A lot of changes since I was in Laurencetown because of course it was the old school I attended. I love the website and will now be a frequent visitor to it. Keep up the good work Catherine.
Thanks Dolores - your 'wee brother' told me he is also a frequent visitor to tullylish.com. It was great to see Mrs. O'Hare there - of course I was a lot younger than all of you O'Dowds!! Think of the number of us who used to walk down to school - I think there were 18 of us at one time - The Campbells, Greene's, O'Dowd's, Tighes and McEvoys - and that's before we joined all the McCartans at the end of their lane!

Hello. I'm in Dublin today doing some research before I venture up to County Down, Tullylish by Monday 19/9 to look up ancestor history records and have a look around. Would love to make contact with someone local who might be able to help me in my research Mary Jane Fraser married to Richard Frazer on 17/1/1857 in the Parish Church Doughan Tullylish. Also, trying find ancestry history on Mary's family. • James Kennedy born 1816 Mullabrack County Down, died 20/12/1876 in Gympie Australia – I cannot find any details on his wife: Elanor Aitchison (or Acheson) – have given a 10 year period for marriage and tried both surnames but no luck • James’s father – William Kennedy – cannot find anything on him either Kind regards Les Barkla lesbarkla@@hotmail.com P: 07751867056
Hello Les, I have sent an e-mail to your address with further information - your family seems to belong to Tullylish Church of Ireland and I have forwarded you the relevant details. Good luck with your search catherine@ tullylish records.

Hi Catherine. so proud of the "wee" brother Gerry
I'm sure you are, Gerry. Couldn't help but think of Vincey and Bridie yesterday and how proud they would have been of 'your wee brother'!
Minister for Education - visit by John Monaghan from St. Colman's Bann Primary School
15. September 2011
Catherine, Thank you for showing everyone such great coverage of this special occasion. We were all very proud of John O'Dowd today. It was a celebration for the parish and wider community represented by the small number of guests we were equipped to invite. For so many people in our community this will stir up many happy memories of their childhood. We can all reflect on how important our formative childhood days have been, and this helps us to ensure that our children have positive experiences as they are growing and developing. Happy Days!
Well said John. A proud day indeed, especially for Mrs. O'Hare and Mrs. McGivern to witness three of their pupils standing side by side in such prominent positions in Education. YIZ ARE GREAT!

A Musical Announcement by Colum McGarry from Laurencetown & Nashville
05. August 2011
Catherine, I am so looking forward being pianist for Sr. Bernadette's party on Sunday night, but as always, I will be dedicating, playing and singing, "My Secret love" to you, our very own special song. Everyone knows what that means to you when I do it for you, - you know, that wee glint in your eye that you get and that big smile of yours (which doesn't be seen very often), anyway, I look forward to it. x
Can't wait Colum!

Magnificently inspiring website. by Mary Wilkinson from Canada
18. June 2011
Thank you for this magnificently inspiring website. Beautiful beyond words! My ancestors from County Down were BLAINS. I suspect they were Presbyterian. I also had BALFOURS and WHITES from County Fermanagh (Anglicans), Then there were DINANS and HARTNEDYS from County Clare, ardent Roman Catholics, SHERMAN , many others from Galway, Tipperary, Limerick and Cork as well as Meath, and Antrim…Mary Wilkinson, Erindale Village, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, where they all settled, intermarried and lived inspiring lives, still making grand contributions to Canada’s history. By the way, my oldest son Matthew is the Historian for Heritage Mississauga if people from your area came to Ontario, maybe he or his students can help. Once again, a very sincere THANK YOU. The photographs are wonderful.
Thank you Mary for your lovely comments - you certainly have a very varied ancestry! Thanks also for your very kind offer of help to anyone who may visit Ontario. Please do keep in touch. [email protected]
'Saturday morning spent in Tullylish' by Liz Hhingley from Stourbridge, West Mid.
18. June 2011
I only meant to take a quick look, but two hours later I'm still here! I've so enjoyed looking at wonderful pictures of Tullylish, reading the Family Searches and catching up with a little bit of 'home'. Catherine you do a fantastic job and when I retire in the summer I'm going to have a go at researching the Byrne family so I'm afraid I'll be bothering you too. Thank you for helping us to remember. Love Liz
Good to hear from you Liz and good luck with researching the 'Byrne' family. There are quite a lot of them, you know!! Catherine

Congratulations to Nuala Monaghan on her fabulous artwork in the Texaco art competition - well done. Also to Master Monaghan on the fabulous Stations of the Cross artwork in the Chapel - well done to all the artists and the staff who encouraged and inspired them.
Yes Paula. A lot of people have commented on the Stations of the Cross - a true reflection on how the Parish and School work together. Also great to see the youth presenting the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday at 3.00pm. Nuala's art work has also generated a huge amount of praise. Well done.
