Greetings Luke.....

Following up on the call to you a while back.... where I was asking you the following.....

Are you aware of a locale in County Longford....parish of Killashee called Clogher and Rinn......

The record that you sent me..... circa 1857 or so.... showed a John Mcgiff living right next to a Patrick Farrell.....in Clogher and Rinn......

You mentioned on the phone that some Ordanance Map of 1847 or 1837 might delineate this......

and that I should put this to you in an email and send it along.......

Our records indicate that a Patrick Farrell married a Mary McGiff and that they in turn sired a Patrick Farrell who married a Bridget Kinsley.....

I suspect that Patrick Farrell who married Bridget might also of had a brother John Farrell b 1795 and a sister who later married a Quinn in the US......Patrick was born 1798 and the sisiter some time later.....

I am enjoying the beehive like interest in the Killashee, Longford McGiffs.... the Kenagh Mcgiffs....

I mean these are within an hours walk of each other.....
it seems reasonable...... that we should be able to tie this together with a few more bits of the thread....

keep up the good work....

(my intention is to locate...the place named Clogher and Rinn.....it IS delineated in the Moffatt map that is on the web as there is another Moffatt family ( mary moffatt) living amoung the 7 families in that Clogher and Rinn....)

My intention is to purchase a satellite photo of the area to determine where that plot is.)

all the best
