Great site about a lovely county. I was fortunate to be in Leitrim last weekend, but unfortunate I couldn't stay for any length of time, although stopped off at Cloone, Aughavas and Carrigallen.

My father-in-law Larry Harahan is from Aughavas. Can anyone out there tell me the origin AND meaning of the name 'Harahan' ?

I'm also trying to piece together bits of family details relating to Harahans which Larry has told me, and which I have obtained myself from graves in Aughavas and Carrigallen. If anyone has bits of family trees which include Harahans - or anything at all regarding the name - could they please give me the details by e-mail at ann.keltie@ntlworld.com?

Many thanks

Enjoyed your website. Good job. Researching my McGovern and Cullen ancestors from Aghlin, Parish Oughteragh, Co. Leitrim. McGovern side immigrated in March 1849. Some settled in NYC, Mississippi, and Texas. There were some of my Cullens living in Aghlin until the 1950's.

While at Stonehill this past weekend I picked up a copy of THE LEITRIM SOCIETY NEWSLETTER 1999 and brought it home. My wife's grandfather came to the U S from Mohil just before the turn of the century. She saw the article about Michael Shanley by Denis Mcgloin and is interested to know the following: My wife's cousin's grandfather was Hugh McGloin,b. May 11, 1896 in Danielson, Ct. Is thereany possible connection with Denis McGloin.

Do you have a bulletin board or queries function?

I am researching my paternal grandfather's family, (JAMES LOUGHLIN, b.1883? Ballinaglerah)and just discovered from passenger list (arrival in NY Mar. 1906) that he was going to Roxbury to see his brother, FRANCIS LOUGHLIN. He ended up moving back to NY to Queens, where he and his wife, MARY MULLIGAN settled in Jamaica. He also had a cousin, PETER LOUGHLIN, in Brooklyn.

My name is Ray McWeeny and I live in Arlington Hts.IL a suburb of Chicago. My great grandfather migrated to the US from Leitrim in 1845. His name was James McWeeny. He arrived with his three sisters Mary, Ellen and Elizabeth. We know that Ellen and James eventually ended up in Wisconsin, but we have no record of Mary or Elizabeth. We think they may have stayed in New York. We know James was in upstate New York for a time on his way west. We think that all four arrived by way of Boston but we can't document it. Connected to your Web site while reading about a trip to Leitrim on the net. Just wanted to let you know there are many people in the Midwest whose origins are Leitrim.

I hope this society and many others in the Boston area are outraged by Rep. Storey's remarks blaming the Irish Catholics for the poor care of the mentally disabled! It is like going back years when all ills in the Boston society were blamed on the Irish. SPEAK UP!

Looking for connections to my great aunt Brigid Keegan (known as Beasie) born Jan. 17, 1868 in Eden Dowra (Ballenaglera)who immigrated to Boston (probably in the 1920's) possibly with another sibling. Either she or the sibling (if it were a sister) married a man named Donahue (or some variation) who had been living in Brooklyn. My aunt, Helen (Ellen, Nellie)lived with her/them when she first came, but after she moved to New York, where my mother (Mary Keegan) and their maternal aunt (Anne Jane Flynn Mulvey McNicolas) were living, all lost contact with them. Any Donahue/Keegans still in Boston ?

Hi, I am glad I found your Web Site. Very well put together, hats off to the Web Master. My family origins are from Mohill, Co. Leitrim. I am re-searching my family(Gilmartin)and found many of the Leitrim Surnames in the other messages which tie through marriages to my family. I would be nice if some how we can connect to those other message originators. Loughlin would be one of many. I have a lot of information to share on Leitrim surmames tied to Gilmartin.

Again, a very nice web Page and I will be back to visit often. You may contact me at: <GGilma4805@aol.com>

Wonderful site! Loved reading the other entries also. Just returned from a marvelous journey to County Leitrim. Found a fourth cousin, Eamon Tubman, in Fenagh. Really felt at home wandering the roads around Ballinamore. People could not have been kinder! Expect to return again. Sorry I am not in the Boston area to go to your meetings. Will have to convince my brothers to go. Leitrim ancestors were from the Ballinamore area, maybe Dermahilty Beg. They, the Fees (mother Catherine was a Tubman), immigrated to Boston, settling in Hingham 1849-1853!
