I don't know how brave you are, but if you're going to be up
getting to Dublin (all the way from Nebraska!) you'll be
smarter to stay
around Dublin fr the first night, rather than risk trying to
find your way
around a strange country in a stick-shift car, driving on
the left side of
the road with little or no sleep under your belt!
We've been to Eire twice--both times were exhausted when we arrived!

Dear Longford Listers - coming to Ireland October 2000.
to see final
restings spots of some of the McClaughry clan. Thanks to a tremendous
of time and effort much has been documented by some of my
My primary tie is James McClaughry. Not much known other
than he may have
come alone to Long Island, N.Y. in the 1700s. He appears
have married a
Catherine Ellsworth in N.Y. Any information out there???
Much more is known about James' cousins, uncles:
Matthew McClaughry - born c 1665. Died March 12, 1773,
Clonbroney, Co. Longford. Wife Margaret.
William McClaughry, born c 1632 in Scotland. Died 12 March
Cleghill Parish. Wife Katherine Reid.
My maps are not very complete so can someone help me locate:
Cleghill Parish, Clonbroney, Co. Longford
Clongish Parish Churchyard
Old Temple Buring Grounds, Longford
A town called Leam where some family sailed from in Sept 1765.
Also, we arive in Dublin around 2:30 pm. Is it reasonable
to assume we can
rent a car and get to Longford the same afternoon. Would
in Dublin or close proximity and then start out??
Any recommended spots in Dublin area or Longford?
Any and all information will be greatly appreciated. I
live in Omaha,
Nebraska so if I can help anyone out from here lete me
