McGoughs in County Mayo

There is a concentration of McGoughs near Castlebar and Foxford in county Mayo. See the all Ireland table in my website under county Mayo: McGoughs, McGeoughs, and McGeoghs in Ireland in the 1820–30s and 1850–60s: By County, Parish, and Townland.

The modern town of Castlebar is ringed by townlands in the civil parish of Aglish that were occupied by McGoughs in 1857. Most of the townlands are within two kilometers of the modern limits of the town. There were McGoughs in the townland of Snugborough to the east, in Knockaphunta to the southeast, in Drumneen to the south, in Carrownaltore to the northwest, in Rathbaun to the north, and in Carrowbrinoge and Tully Commons to the northwest. James McGough also owned property in the townland of Rinshinna in the civil parish of Breaghwy. two kilometers west of Castlebar. There was also on Owen McGough in 1856 in the townland of Graffa Mor in the civil parish of Islandeady, 3 kilometers east by northeast of Castlebar. There were also several McGough families in the civil parish of Ballyhean, which adjoins the parish of Aglish to the south, specifically, in the townlands of Cloondeash, 3 kilometers south by south east of Castlebar, and Derrynagooley (not on the map, but between Derrygarve and Magheranagay at M 138 854), 4 kilometers south of Castlebar. Most of these townlands are named on sheet 31 of the Discovery Series of 1:50 000 maps of Ireland published by the Ordnance Survey of Ireland, except Graffa Mor is designated as "Graffa." There were also McGoughs in the civil parish of Ballintober, which is immediately south of Ballyhean.

The townland of Rinnananny, about two kilometers north by northwest of the modern town of Foxford, and Belgarrow (which adjoins Rinnananny to the south), about one kilometer to the west by northwest of Foxford, both in the civil parish of Toomore, were occupied by McGoughs in 1856. These townlands are all also named on sheet 31 of the Discovery Series of 1:50 000 maps of Ireland published by the Ordnance Survey of Ireland.

These McGoughs do not seem to have arrived in county Mayo much before 1800. From where came the McGoughs in county Mayo?

Exiles from Ulster?

The McGoughs in county Mayo may have originated in Ulster and moved to Mayo either as a result of the "Hell or Connaught" policy of Oliver Cromwell in the 1650s* or more likely because of later pogroms of the Orange Order in counties Armagh, Down, Monaghan, and Tyrone after the Battle of the Diamond in 1795. A book on the first possible cause is Hell or Connaught! The Cromwellian Colonisation of Ireland 1652–1660 by Peter Beresford Ellis (1975). An essay on the second possible cause is The Diamond Fight of 1795 and the Resultant Expulsions, by Patrick Tohall, in the journal, Seanchas Ardmhacha, 1958, pages 17–50.

*An act of parliament of 1652 banished all opponents of the British parliament east of the Shannon to Connaught and Clare on pain of death.

There was "an influx into Mayo of Catholic refugees from Ulster following the sectarian clashes in north Armagh in 1795 which led to the formation of the Orange Society." County Mayo: An Outline History (Part 3 - 1600 to 1800) by Bernard O'Hara and Nollaig ÓMuraíle. Peadar Livingstone at page 169 of The Monaghan Story describes how, as a result of campaigns by the Orangemen, a good number of Monaghan Irishmen were forced to move to Connaught, which includes Mayo:

"The years that followed 1795 were years of great terror in many parts of Ulster. To begin with, Protestant armed bands went around some areas and drove many of the Catholic people off their farms. Armagh suffered greatly in this way and parts of Monaghan probably suffered badly as well. Some of the Catholic farmers who were driven out headed for Galway and Mayo. The exodus from Monaghan was probably most severe in the Killeevan-Drum-Currin areas and also from areas around Ballybay." The footnote reads thusly: "See Seanchus Ardmhacha (1958) 47 and Rebellion Papers 408/591/42 7 March 1797."

There is a good basis for speculating that some McGoughs were driven from counties Armagh, Tyrone, and Monaghan to Mayo as a result of persecution of the Catholics following the Battle of the Diamond on September 21, 1795. In the 1800s, there were McGeoughs in county Armagh living in the immediate area of the Diamond, in the townlands of Ballytrue, Lurgancott, Annahugh, and the town of Loughgall, in the civil parish of Kilmore. The Diamond is a crossroads in county Armagh about 6 kilometers west of Portadown and about 12 kilometers northeast of the city of Armagh. It is two kilometers north and 4 kilometers east of the town of Loughgall, about half way between Loughgall and Portadown. The location is at H945 542 on sheet 19, Armagh, of the 1:50 000 map of the Discoverer Series, Ordnance Survey of Northern Ireland. As a result of the Battle of the Diamond, the Orange Order was formalized as a secret society. See my pages: McGoughs, McGeoughs, and McGeoghs in County Armagh under the subheading Civil Parish of Kilmore and the Newry Townland of Grange Lower; and McGoughs, McGeoughs and McGoughs in County Tyrone under the subheading Omagh West—Civil Parish of Omagh.

The Wikipedia article on the town of Crossmolina in Mayo lists in its chronology of the town history:

"1795—Ulster Migration to Mayo. 4,000 Catholics flee to Mayo after the 'Battle of the Diamond'. Many of them settled in the Crossmolina area."

Patrick Tohall's article in Seanchas Ardmhacha, cited above, also mentions the towns of Castlebar and Foxford as places in Mayo where refugees from Ulster settled. Castlebar and Foxford are the two towns where McGoughs are now concentrated. Fragmentary lists of refugees include a Terence (or Patt?) McGoghy among the families who sought refuge in the Union of Westport and Aghagower between May 1795 and May 1796, and a Hugh McGeoughagan from the parish of Aghaloo in county Tyrone who sought refuge in Mayo. See: Ulster Migration 1795 1796 from East Tyrone, Armagh, Derry. Names of immigrants mentioned include Patt McGoghy, Hugh McGeoghan, Owen McGurk, Owen McGurkey, and Arthur McGurla. See also: Forced to leave Counties Armagh, Tyrone and Londonderry due to persecution of Catholics.

Subject: Re: [IRELAND] Ulster Catholic Emigration to Mayo 1796—Battle ofthe Diamond

Hi Jean,

After the Battle of the Diamond in County Armagh in 1795 there were many who were forced to flee for their lives from not only County Armagh, but Tyrone, Derry, Monaghan, Antrim, Down, Fermanagh, Cavan, Longford and Louth. There are two excellent articles that tell the history of the necessity of the migration to the Province of Connaught/Connacht, mainly to County Mayo, some also went to Counties Galway, Sligo and Leitrim- some also fled to North America and Scotland.

1. The Migration of Ulster Catholics to Connaught, 1795–96 by Patrick Hogan; Seanchas Ardmacha, Vol 9 No 2 1979 p.286–301

2. The Diamond Fight of 1795 and the Resultant Expulsions by Patrick Tohall, Seanchas Ardmacha, Vol 3 No 1, 1958 pp.17–50

Lord Altamont, Denis Browne of Westport, estimated the "entry to County Mayo of 800 familes (4,000 individuals) up until Novemeber 27, 1796." There is no record for the year of 1797 although the trend of migration into County Mayo was the same. Other areas of County Mayo also received refugees from the violence (the Baronies of Tyrawley, Gallen, Costello and Clanmorris including the areas around Swinford, Ballina, Ballaghaderreen,Crossmolina, Foxford and Claremorris).

The Migration of Ulster Catholics article has a petition signed by 101 persons who fled to Mayo.

"The Diamond Fight of 1795 and the Resultant Expulsions" has lists of names of who moved into County Mayo and a list of the areas they fled from.

Beannachtai,
Margaret (Máiread)

County Leitrim became the gateway to the west for the fleeing "Ultachs"  [Irish speakers] as they were called. An essay entitled The Coming of the Ultachs speaks of an influx of refugees from Ulster into county Leitrim, especially into the upper part of Aughnasheelin in the parish of Oughteragh. (The church at Aughnasheelin is in the townland of Drumbibe.) Here are excerpts from that essay on the web page of The Caffertys and related families:

 "This migration began following the Battle of the Diamond near Portadown, Co Armagh in September of 1795. The battle between rival gangs of Protestants and Catholics which led to the setting up of the Orange Order sparked off a sharp persecution of Catholics by Protestant gangs calling themselves Peep-o'-Day Boys.

"An estimated ten thousand Catholics, mostly weavers, are said to have fled to the province of Connaught after that in what became a second 'to hell or to Connaught.'

"The Earl of Gosford, the Protestant governor of Armagh at the time, described the persecution as having 'all the circumstances of a ferocious cruelty'   Jimmy Hope, a fugitive from the persecution, who settled in Keshcarrigan, Co Leitrim,  recalled hearing Peep-o'-Day Boys 'boasting of the indulgence they got from the magistrates for wrecking and beating the papists, as they called their neighbors, and the snug bits of land that their friends got when the papists fled to Connaught, and the fun they had in committing the depredations.' ...

"Some of them settled on it's [County Leitrim's] mountain slopes, while others pushed into Sligo, Mayo, Roscommon and even Galway. Lord Altamont of Westport estimated that some four thousand of them settled in Mayo, as far west as Belmullet. He described them as mostly weavers, decent, well-behaved, peaceful, industrious but utterly destitute. An examination of the Tithe Applotment Books [1833] for Oughteragh shows an unusually high concentration of easily recognizable Ulster surnames in the parish, especially Aughnasheelin, where there were thirty four, McTeague and Cafferty names  among them. ...

"Within hours of the Battle of the Diamond the victors founded The Loyal Orange Order and almost immediately set about attacking their Catholic neighbors and driving them from their homes. The majority of those attacked were weavers, part of the then thriving cottage linen industry in Ulster. The usual procedure was to place a placard or threatening notice on the weaver's house, giving the occupants two or three days to 'go to hell or to Connaught'. They  generally opted to go to Connaught. If they hadn't quit their house by the specified time they were attacked, their webs and looms broken and their house destroyed. These attacks continued during the autumn and winter of 1795 and during most of 1796. ...     

"Lord Gosford wrote to Pelham about the increasingly disturbed state of the country. He reported houses being burned every night, dreadful murders being committed every week and that it appeared that it was 'the fixed intentions' of the Protestants to 'exterminate their opponents'.

On December 28, 1795, a meeting of twenty-four magistrates of county Armagh approved a resolution by the governor of county Armagh, Arthur, Viscount Gosford, calling for regular meetings of the entire magistracy of Armagh county to deal with complaints of "wreckings." The supporting address by Viscount Gosford cited the "lawless banditti" that were persecuting the Catholics of county Armagh and the "supineness of the magistracy" despite the widespread "ruin and misery" being inflicted on the Catholics. Among the twenty-four magistrates who signed the resolution was "Joshua McGeough (Drumsill, Armagh, 1747–1817," a member of the wealthy McGeough Bond family of Armagh. (Bond was added to the name in 1824 by Walter McGeough Bond.) Tohall, op. cit, Seanchas Ardmhacha, 1958, page 27. The summary of the MacGeough Bond Papers on the website of the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland describes a letter of 1835 from Walter MacGeough Bond to his sister, Miss Eliza MacGeough of Drumsill, in which he complains of "Orange partisanship in the magistracy of Co. Armagh." (See McGeough Bonds in County Armagh on my page McGoughs, McGeoughs, and McGeoghs in County Armagh.

Perhaps some McGoughs were attracted to Mayo from county Monaghan by the linen industry in Mayo. In the 1790s, Mayo was one of the largest producers of flax in Ireland. The Linen Hall in Castlebar, built in 1790, was overflowing with spinning wheels waiting to be distributed to the people." Linenhall History. The list of Flax Growers of Ireland, 1796 - County Mayo contains no form of the surname McGough, which is some evidence that McGoughs established themselves in county Mayo in or after the year 1796. (There was a Patrick McGeough on the 1796 flax seed growers list for the parish of Armagh, county Armagh; a Terence and William McGough in the parish of Aghaloo, county Tyrone, and an Arthur Megough in the parish of Clonfeacle; and 19 McGeoughs and 1 McGough in county Monaghan.)

 

O'Cuachin

MacLysaght points out, in material quoted above, that there is a second Irish sept located in Mayo whose name has sometimes been anglicized as Gough: "O' Cuachin of the Hy Fiachrach group, formerly O'Cowhane, O'Quohane etc., now obsolete as such and rare as Gough. Perhaps some of the Mayo McGoughs came from this sept.

 

Magh Eó (Mayo Abbey)

Could there be a connection between the surname McGough in county Mayo and the origin of the name of the county, Magh Eó (Mayo Abbey)? Mayo Abbey is about ten mile southeast of Castlebar. The Gaelic spelling of Mayo is Maigh Eo, or Maighe h-Eu (e.g., Annals of Ulster 732.5 and 773.5). One form of the name is Mhaigheo. Any connection with Eochaidh or McGough is doubtful. The accepted meaning of Magh Eo is "the plain of the yew trees." Mayo Abbey was founded by Saxon and Pictish monks originally from Northumbria. The monastery "became known throughout Christendom as 'Mayo of the Saxons'. For several centuries it remained a Saxon establishment and there are many recorded contacts between it and Iona and Northumbria. Adomnán, the ninth abbot of Iona and biographer of Columba, is reputed to have lived in Magh Eó between the years 797 to 802 AD." History of Magh Eó (Mayo Abbey) in Co Mayo in the West of Ireland. See the Annals of the Four Masters 1176.12 where the monastery is referred to as "Maigh Eo na Saxan," Mayo of the Saxons.

The Annals of the Four Masters report the death of Hugh, Bishop of Magh Eo, in 768: "M768.6 Aedhan, Bishop of Magh Eo Mayo ... died."

"Subject of Letter: County Mayo Birth/Baptism Search for Patrick McGough

"Dear Mr. McGough:

"Thank you for your request for a search of County Mayo records of births and baptisms for Patrick McGough, born circa 1841or 1842, son of Patrick McGough and Anne Ronane

"Civil records of births did not commence in Ireland until 1864. No record of the baptism of Patrick was found. However, Patrick McGough and Anne Ronane of Mount Gordan (located on the Westport road on the outskirts of Castlebar) are recorded as the parents of: (A) Thomas McGough baptized 27 January 1843 (sponsors: Patrick Ronane and Mary Ronane). This child apparently died in infancy as a second Thomas was baptized later. (B) Thomas McGough baptized 4 December 1843 (sponsors: Patrick Ronane and Mary Ronane). (C) Anne McGough baptized 10 September 1848 (sponsors: James McGough and Mary McGough). (D) James McGough baptized 22 December 1853 (sponsors: Patrick Ronane and Judith Ronane).

"Yours sincerely,

Gender: Female Birth: 07 Jan 1874 Castlebar, Mayo, Ireland

Parents: Patrick McGough, Margaret Gibbons [Birth records of Castlebar (Develish) show the birth of a daughter Mary to Pat McGoff and Margaret Gibbons on January 1, 1872. 1872 Birth Register Achill Castlebar Castlebar North Balla. Here is a summary of McGough-Gibbons Descendants (1993) by Nancy Ann Unwin of Rochester Hills, Michigan (call number 929.273 A1 no. 8028 in JSMB US/CAN Book) in the Family History Library Catalogue: "Patrick McGough, Sr. was born in County Mayo, Ireland. He married Margaret Gibbons February 14, 1870 in Tuam Diocese, Burriscarra parish, Ireland. They had six children. All but their eldest son, John (1877–1939), immigrated to America and settled in Detroit, Michigan. Three sons never married. Ellen Noreen McGough (1878*–1943) married Thomas Joseph Finan (on November 27, 1907, in St. Vincent DePaul Church in Detroit, Michigan) and had five children. Michael Leo McGough (1880–1928) married Katherine Loretta Short (on June 21, 1909, in St. Vincent DePaul Church in Detroit, Michigan) and had four children. (The 1910 census of the 10th ward of Detroit lists a Michael McGough on Fourteenth Street, age 30, born in Ireland, who emigrated in 1900 and was nautralized, married one year, a gas maker for the gas company; living with his wife, Catherine, age 29, born in Michigan, and their only child, Elinor, who was one month old and born in Michigan.) Descendants and relatives live in Michigan, Ohio, Arizona and elsewhere."

[*The book says Ellen Noreen "Ellie" McGough was born on January 6, 1878. Ellen left Ireland in 1894, arrived at Ellis Island, and departed by train to live with her cousin, Mary Lavelle, in Detroit, Michigan. She brought her brother Michael Leo to the US with her. (Nora McGoff, age 17, daughter of Thomas McGoff, of Castlebar, arrived in Philadelphia aboard the Merion from Queenstown on April 28, 1909. She was traveling with Mary Lavelle.)

[Here is an email of January 18, 2006, from Lilly Bradley of Detroit:

"Wow! It was a great surprise to see my family tree on your site. Thank you.

"Ellen McGough is my Grandmother. I say is rather then was because we are likely to meet in heaven. Some time after she moved to the United States, she met and married Thomas Joseph Finan. He also came from Ireland and was born in County Sligo 1884 or 1886.

"As a young child, I knew James McGough who died April 27, 1962, at Carmel Hall Nursing Home in Detroit, Michigan. I had just turned 12 years old the month he passed away. My mother used to tell me how he played Santa Claus every year at the nursing home. She also told me that, for the people who went to his graveside after his funeral, he had a message read telling them where to go for his old fashioned wake. My parents did make it to his wake since they were at the graveside when the announcement was made.

"I’m wondering in what way we may be related to you. My mother’s maiden name is Margaret Finan. Ellen McGough, my mother’s mother, died in a hospital that my mother was working in as a registered nurse. A doctor that my mother worked with had just gotten out of Ellen (McGough) Finan’s room and callously pronounced to my mom, 'That woman doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in H___ !'

"Mom broke down crying, and then he chewed her out for getting to close to a patient. It was only later that someone explained to him that that patient was my mother’s mother. Ellen (McGough) Finan was somewhere in her 50’s when she died in that hospital from pneumonia. My mother, Margaret (Finan) Calvin died a year ago from anemia and was one month shy of 96.

"Our family is moving to Ireland in about 2 months or less. There are 8 of us going. Having given birth to our son at the age of 46, our son, Patrick Bradley is 9 years old, but our daughter is 26 and has a husband and 3 children so far."

"I grew up near Detroit, Michigan and my father was Don Thomas Calvin.

"I would love to hear from you. Thank you for such a great website."

Here is a follow up of January 20:

"We just took another look at Ellen McGough Finan's birth certificate and on it her mother's name is Margaret, but on Ellen's death certificate her husband thought her mother was Mary. I would tend to trust what is written on the birth certificate."

The 1920 census of Wayne county, Michigan, lists Thomas Finan, age 34, born in Ireland, who emigrated to the US in 1904 and was naturalized in 1911, a laborer for a railroad, living with his wife, Ellen, age 40, born in Ireland, who emigrated in 1894 and was naturalized in 1911, with 5 children, all of whom were born in Michigan: Margaret, age 11; Thomas, age 9; Helen, age 8; Catherine, age 6; and Walter, age 4. The family was living on 16th Street in ward 10 in a home they owned subject to a mortgage.

The Ellis Island website shows that Thomas Finan arrived in New York from Queenstown aboard the Teutonic on October 20, 1904. He was 18 years old, a laborer, whose last residence was Ballymote (in county Sligo, 15 miles south of Sligo town), and his destination was Detroit. His passage was paid by his aunt, Mrs. Hurst, of 618 24th Street, Detroit, Michigan. Traveling with him was James Finan, age 20, probably his brother, who was also traveling from Ballymote to Detroit at the expense of his aunt, Mrs. Hurst.]

John McGoughs born in Mayo around 1870.

Here is part of an email of May 6, 2007, from Peter McLoughlin of Ireland, and a follow-up email of May 10:

"I am looking for a Bridget Sheridan of Cloonlagheen, Partry, Co Mayo who married a John mc Gough on 1/11/1895 in Partry, any help or info you can give would be great."

"John Mc Goff married Bridget Sheridan on 1/11/1895 in St Mary's Church, Partry. Bridget was 20, daughter of Martin Sheridan. Corrig Partry. This is also known as Cloonlagheen. John was 30 and a son of Michael Mc Goff, Castlebar. Witnesses John Reilly Bridget Kennedy. Son Patrick born 1898. Believe that there were others."

[John McGOUGH Drimneen, son of Michael McGOUGH, married Mary FALLON Ringuane, daughter of Michael FALLON, on November 12, 1896. Marriages in the Castlebar/Aglish Parish records.]

The 1901 census of the townland of Cloonlagheen, parish of Ballyovey, barony of Carra, county of Mayo, lists a Martin Sheridan, age 25, a farmer, with his wife, Maggie, age 20, and a daughter, Bridget, age 9 months. (Peter McLoughlin says that Maggie Sheridan was a "Hennelly, my great aunt.") Also listed in the household are Mary Sheridan, age 69, Martin's mother, who was a widow, and Patrick McGough, age 3, a nephew. In the same census, a John McGough, age 31, is listed as a servant in the home of Joseph Sheridan, age 64, in the town of Castlebar (Curragh), parish of Aglish, barony of Curra. Joseph Sheridan was the county registrar. With him was his wife, Margaret Sheridan, age 57; his son-in-law, Henry R. Flanagan, age 23, who had married Joseph and Margaret's daughter, Mary, age 28. Henry was the assistant registrar, and lived with his in-laws and his wife, Mary, and a daughter, Kathleen, age 3, who was born in county Longford. Go to: The Leitrim-Roscommon 1901 Census Search Output by Roger McDonnell and search the database for Joseph Sheridan. [William SHERIDAN, Ellison Street, Castlebar, son of Joseph SHERIDAN, Spencer Park, Castlebar, married Catherine Mary GIBBONS, daughter of William GIBBONS, Main Street, Castlebar, on April 27, 1896. Marriages in the Castlebar/Aglish Parish records.]

A posting by William Mahon of June 2, 2000, on the Castlebar Roots website, offers some evidence that Joseph Sheridan of Spencer Street in Castlebar had a relative named Martin Sheridan:

Seeking: Sheridan/Morris

Details: My great-great-grandmother, Celia Morris (born ca.1824) was the oldest daughter of RICHARD MORRIS, sadler, Castlebar, and a niece of MARTIN SHERIDAN. This Martin Sheridan's relations included JOSEPH SHERIDAN of Spencer Park and his son, SIR JOSEPH SHERIDAN (born 1882). I would be most grateful for any information about either of these families. My understanding is that this line of Sheridans came from Kikkinker, Co. Cavan, early in the nineteenth century.

[Martin Joseph Sheridan, born March 28, 1881 in Mayo County, Ireland, died March 27, 1918 in New York City.

He came to America from Ireland at the age of seventeen and became the best all around athlete of his era. He participated in the 1904, 1906 and 1908 Games, and won a total of five gold medals (four in the discus and one in the shot put), three silver medals (standing high jump, standing long jump, and the stone throw), and one bronze medal (standing long jump). An injury forced him to withdraw from the pentathlon in 1906, and in 1908 he competed in the triple jump. His record of nine Olympic medals has been exceeded by only three other Americans. Mr. Sheridan, like many New York Irish-American athletes, was a New York City policeman and was assigned as bodyguard for the governor whenever the latter visited the city. He retired from competition in 1911 and died at a young age during the worldwide influenza epidemic of 1918.

See: Martin Sheridan (1881–1918) under Bohola, County Mayo, on Mayo on the Move. "Bohola is a small village of less than a thousand people positioned in the center of Co. Mayo and is not on most maps of Ireland. It is located five miles south of Swinford and ten miles east of Castlebar." For a map, go to: Bohola, Co. Mayo 1901 Census]

The John McGough in the home of Joseph Sheridan in Castlebar was listed as 31 years old in the 1901 census. The information on the marriage of John McGough and Bridget Sheridan lists his age as 30 in 1895. This age fits better with the John McGough who was born on January 22, 1864, in Castlebar, Mayo to Martin McGough and Mary Rielly. The fact that a John Reilly was as witness at the marriage of John McGough and Bridget Sheridan offers some slight circumstantial evidence that this is the right John McGough. (I list below other John McGoughs in mayo of about the same age.) The marriage information, however, says that John's father was Michael McGough.

[The 1901 census of Killawalla West, Ballintober Parish, lists: John McGough (55) farmer/married, Mary (12)-Michael (10). The 1911 census of Killawalla West, Ballintober parish, lists: John McGOUGH 62 Bridget 49 Mary 22 Michael A. 21.]

Cloonlagheen is a townland in the parish of Ballyovey (Tournakeady), Poor Law Union of Ballintober, with a population in 1891 of 75 people and 14 houses. (See Irish Ancestors.) "Partry parish lies between loughs Carra and Mask, world renowned wild brown trout lakes, on the Castlebar/Ballinrobe road, with the villages of Kilkeeran on the west Carra shore and Aughnish, Ballygarry and Derrymore on the Mask east shore. The old name for the parish is Ballyovey, while the existing name is derived from "Partraigh", the tribe living here in ancient times." Kilkeeran is a town in Partry.

County Mayo Roman Catholic Church Records lists the Roman Catholic Parish of Ballyovey in the civil parish of Partry (Tourmakeady), in the diocese of Tuam, and says that baptismal records from 1869–1880 are available on microfilm #0926233 from the Family History Library. A Catholic parish that adjoins Ballovey to the north is Ballintober, in the civil parishes of Burriscarra and Ballintubber. To the south of Ballovey is the Roman Catholic and civil parish of Ballinrobe.

Ballaghaderreen Town

The town of Ballaghaderreen was located in County Mayo until 1899, when it was transferred to Roscommon by the Local Government (Ireland) Act 1898. Ballaghaderreen is about 40 miles east of Foxford and 40 miles west of Strokestown on N5.

On May 17, 1921, Richard McGough of the East Mayo Brigade gained a measure of fame by holding up a train near Ballaghaderreen. Here is an excerpt from Sligo—A Chronicle of Conflict by Michael Farry (Published by Killoran Press, Trim, Co. Meath. Copyright Michael Farry 1992 and 2005. First published 1992 ISBN 0 9520135 0 9. The electronic edition 2005), pages 306 and following:

"On May 17th (1921) Jim Hunt and two others, Mick Harrington and Richard McGeogh, were waiting at Mullaghroe railway crossing for a military car which used to travel from Tubbercurry to Boyle. They held up the train from Ballaghaderreen to Kilfree and got off it at Mullaghroe Station. There they got on to the engine of a train going to Ballaghaderreen. Richard McGeogh, who was from Tuam, claimed to be an engine driver and he took charge of the engine.

"He stopped the engine on the railway bridge at Ballaghaderreen which was within range of the RIC barracks. From this position they opened fire on the barracks with three rifles. It was about 3 pm. Fire was returned at first by policemen on the streets and then by policemen from loopholes in the barracks. Harrington was injured to the head. McGeogh then tried to reverse the engine back towards Mullaghroe but failed to get up enough steam. They shovelled more coal into the engine but this failed to have the desired result.

"They then abandoned the engine and retreated towards the hills on the Roscommon/ Sligo border under police fire. They then made their way towards Mullaghroe and went into a public house at Mullaghroe. Five minutes after their entry the place was surrounded by about twenty Auxiliaries and police. McGeogh, Harrington and Hunt made a run for it. Hunt was fit at the time and kept his distance from his pursuers who were led by an officer called Little. However one of the policemen kept gaining on him and Hunt only kept him at bay by firing at him. When his ammunition had run out Hunt was captured. McGeogh was also captured but Harrington hid among the rushes in a bog and escaped. One Webley revolver, one German automatic and a Lee Metford carbine were recovered by the police. The carbine had been left on the table in the public house. Some of the Auxiliaries made to ill-treat Hunt but Little prevented them. Hunt and McGeogh were taken on foot to Ballaghaderreen and from there to Boyle barracks. ...

"Among the forty or so prisoners in Boyle [Barracks] were Jim Hunt and Dick McGough recently captured on May 17th after the Ballaghaderreen train attack. The O/C of the North Roscommon Brigade, Dockery, was also a prisoner."

They Put the Flag a-Flyin'—The Roscommon Volunteers 1916–1923 (Old IRA) by Kathleen Hegarty Thorne (1st Edition (2005) 2nd Edition, County Mayo Addendum, Published by Generation Organization, P.O. Box 5414, Eugene, OR 97405) mentions Richard McGough at pages 96, 366, and 491 of the first edition. Here are Additions and Corrections to the 1st Edition:

"Page 98. Richard McGough (McGoff) of the East Mayo Brigade operated the train in the attack on Ballaghaderreen Barracks in May 1921. He was not from Tuam."

"Page 366. Richard McGough was from the East Mayo Brigade not Tuam."

The second edition of Thorne"s book added, in its Mayo section at page 464, a picture of the "Men of the West" Flying Column commanded by General Michael Kilroy (my wife's uncle) of the old IRA. See my page: The Kilroy Connection.

Timeline of the Irish War of Independence on Wikipedia gives this sequence of events:

"23 September 1920: Two RIC men were killed in an ambush by East Mayo and South Sligo IRA brigades, at Ratra near Frenchpark, County Roscommon. One volunteer died in the action; Black and Tans mutilated his body and dragged it through the streets of Ballaghaderreen.

"25 September 1920: In revenge for previous actions by the Black and Tans, a small group of men from the East Mayo Brigade hijacked a train and drove it past the barracks at Ballaghaderreen whilst firing at the building. The attack took the crown forces by surprise but there were no casualties."

The incidents of September 20, 1920, and May 17, 1921, sound the same, but I have not been able to explain the discrepancy in dates.
