Mr by Fry from Workington Cumbria England
01. February 2009
Hi...Am researching family history of "Fry" and there is reference to a "Samuel Fry" living in "Dronbridge" (but as the record is badly written I suspect this should read "Banbridge") in the 1850-1880 period. One reference points to someone of that name living in High Street Gilford. I am trying to find out if this man is my great grandfather ? If anyone can help with the "Fry" family history in County Down please could you email me to [email protected] Many Thanks Derek Fry

The maturing well Organist. by COLUM MCGARRY from Laurencetown
26. January 2009
Catherine, you know, I have just seen that picture of myself at the Concert of Canon Treanor. I am sure you will agree, in fact I know you will, that I have got better looking as the years have went on, and indeed, continue to do so; and thats me being modest. I bet you have cut that picture out and stuck me on your fridge with all the other pic's of me!
Indeed I have, Colum and I have a number beside each picture - the one at the top centre has a 20 beside it with a 5 to the left and a 1 to the right!!! Congrats on your male voice choir - fantastic to listen to them on a Saturday evening in Laurencetown - if you keep practising, you might even make the grade for the Clare!!

You can collect your copy of the DVD on Sunday at the Den, Finbar. There is no charge. Fr. Des Loughran had the original video converted to DVD and was kind enough to give me a copy. Condolences to your wife on the death of her father - may he rest in peace.

Mulholland Family by Patricia Evers (Mulholland) from Dublin
22. December 2008
Am trying to research the Mulholland Family who lived in Corcreany, Tullylish. My father James Mulholland was born there in 1893. I am particularly interested in getting my great grandparents wedding certificate. Their names were John Mulholland and Esther (or Catherine) Wright. I think they would have married around 1835. Any advise would be gratefully received.
It will be after Christmas, Patricia, before I can research this for you. Hopefully, I will come up with something. Happy Christmas from tullylish.com

Keenan, McCaffrey & Lindsey by Paul Thomas Keenan from Giffnock, East Renfrewshire, Scotland
28. November 2008
Hi everyone a fantastic site, keep up the great work. I know from personal experience how helpful everyone is at 'the Den' where I saw the record of the marriage of my gr gr grandparents Thomas Keenan and Cecilia McCaffrey married at St Johns in 1854 there were other Keenans and Byrne's and McCaffreys in the records however, not sure of any definate connections. Thomas and Cecilia came to Johnstone, Scotland in 1857 and a few others from the parish followed across the Irish sea. I think my Keenans were in Loughans townland but not sure. Thomas had a brother William who married Sarah Thompson in 1850 and a possible brother/cousin who married Catherine Treanor in 1853 (all St John's) Their parents were John Keenan and Anne nee Lindsey/Lindsay both born c 1895 and we think they originated outside the parish or even the county Down. Cecilia's bc 1830 had a sister Margaret 1832 and Elizabeth b 1838 who married a John Keenan (another brother or cousin)?parents were John McCaffrey and Margaret Byrne both c 1800. If anyone can give any info. on where Keenans/Lindsays McCaffreys and Byrnes lived or where they originated I would be very grateful. Even the smallest piece of seemingly useless fragments might be very significant/important. Also, if anyone needs access to Scots data please let me know as the mill factory skills honed in Tullylish in 1830-1860 period were in great demand around West Renfrewshire in the mid 19th century and it seems that many left Tullylish to live in Scotland or to save the fare to the US. if you lost some people they may not all have made it to the US directly and many spent 5/10/15 years before going to US... many stayed on in Scotland. I wish everyone a peaceful and holy Christmas and hope to get over to your lovely town again in 2009 Slan go Foill Paul
Nice to hear from your again Paul and thanks for the compliments. If anyone can give Paul any information, let us know at tullylish.com and we will forward the information.
