Third Mc Grath Clan Gathering.

A very successful third Mc Grath Clan Gathering was held in the Old Ground Hotel in Ennis, County Clare on the weekend of June 23rd with more than 100 attending from as far away as the USA, Canada, Australia and Switzerland. With three major groupings of the clan name in Ireland viz around Waterford in the south east, in the Clare and Tipperary area in Munster and in the north in Donegal, Fermanagh and Tyrone the clan gathering has now circulated to each area major area. This year's clan organisers were John Mc Grath of Carrick on Suir and Liam Mc Grath of Dungarvan. John will be captain of next year's Irish rowing team to the Celtic Games. Northern representatives to the gathering were Brendan Mc Grath now a Dublin businessman but originally from Ederney, County Fermanagh who was elected Clan Chieftain in Pettigo in 1996. Brendan's brother Maurice was also present and as clan bard and historian respectively were Cormac Mc Connell of Belnaleck and Clare FM Radio fame and John Cunningham who gave a talk on the Northern Mc Graths. Nicholas Mc Grath chief of the Waterford Mc Graths also attended. In the regally medieval setting of the Thomond Function room matters of clan interest were discussed and the evening ended with traditional music and Sean nos singing. Anyone interested in taking part or contributing to next year's clan gathering in Pettigo on the weekend of the 22nd of June should contact the clan website for information updates or phone 0044 2868 658327 or 051 640545.

From here on it really splits up to different tribes, clans, ect.

Genealogy deals with pedigrees and relations. Geography deals with locations. Notice the references to Spain, Castile, Portugal. ect.

The list above sure does indicate where the dark hair comes from in the Irish Genes.

The magazine ,"Ireland of the Welcomes", has just run its second article on the Spanish in the Republic. I have followed earlier discussions on the "Black Irish". The following are exerpts from the article entitled

"O'NEILL and O'DONNELL on the march". This will show that the Spanishvwere in Ireland amd had contact with the northern cheiftans. The Battle of Kinsale in 1601, when the gallant Northern earls, O'NEILL and O'DONNELL, fighting side by side with their Spanish allies, lost to the English. It was as a result of that battle that the English Crown decided to take permanent steps to ensure nothing similar happened again, and drew up plans for the wholesale plantation of Ulster with Scots lowlanders.

"Duneill Castle, Dromore West, Co. Sligo, of Red Hugh O'DONNELL's last Christmas in his native land. It was here that O'DONNELL sighted five Spanish ships off the coast on their way to Killary Harbour, and signalled them to join him at Killybegs instead, so that plans could be made of Spanish assistance later in the year in a final attempt to rid Ireland of its conquerors.

"O'DONNELL was the only one of the chieftans that knew anything about the sea," explains John THUILLER, a local historian who has made the study of this period in Irish history his life's work. "Of course neither he nor O'NEILL ever intended the Spaniards to come into Kinsale. That was absolutely the last place they wanted them to land. The Spanish fleet should have sailed up to the north west, and met up with the Irish chieftains there.""

As seen in the historical context, the Spainish were allies with the Irish. To be an ally there had to be contact with them, so in this light it would appear that the Spanish were in Ireland and possibly intermarried with the Irish. (nothing like a man in uniform!

A SENESCHAL is a steward in charge of a noble's estate in the Middle Ages. ENCYCLOP�DIA BRITANNICA seneschal ,French S�N�CHAL, in medieval and early modern France, a steward or principal administrator in a royal or noble household. As time went on, the office declined in importance and was often equivalent to that of a bailiff; the office and title persisted until the French Revolution.

In Merovingian times the seneschal was subordinate to the major domus, or mayor of the palace, and had charge of the personnel of the royal household. Under the Carolingians he became responsible for organizing the journeys of king or emperor and, by 1071, was the chief officer--steward of the household, head of the army, and administrator of the royal demesne. With the title dapifer he headed the names of those witnessing royal diplomas. By the mid-12th century, however, the office had weakened and become largely honorary.

Most of the great French feudatories--the dukes of Normandy and Aquitaine, the counts of Anjou, Poitiers, and Toulouse--had their seneschals. In Anjou and Poitou the title was given to subordinate officials on those counts' demesne. When these provinces became united to the crown after 1203, these officials were retained to perform the same duties as the bailiffs of the royal demesne elsewhere. This was the basis of the later classic administrative division of France into bailliages and s�n�chauss�es, although in Normandy, Maine, Anjou, and Auvergne the seneschals were replaced by bailiffs.

Black Frank Mc Hugh (Highwayman)

Prionsias Dubh Mc Hugh otherwise Black Frank Mc Hugh.

Prionsias Dubh was a gentleman highwayman who flourished inthe second half of the 18th century. His headquarters was in the Scraghy hills about half way between Pettigo in County Donegal and Castlederg in CountyTyrone. The three counties of Fermanagh, Tyrone and Donegal all meet in this area. He was a man of some degree of culture and frequently mingled with the gentry at the house of Mr. Acheson of Grouse Lodge, near Pettigo who was unlikely to be unaware of the identity of Prionsias Dubh. Here the highwayman picked up tips on the travel arrangements of the gentry so as to select the best possible time to raid their property. The following news item in the Belfast News Letter May 9th 1780 tells of the demise of Black Frank and his gang. There are at least two songs still sung in the locality concerning Frank and his exploits. A recent correspondent Neville Long tells me that a grandson of Jeremiah Acheson (of Grouse Lodge ancestry) became Bishop of Connecticut in the USA and his son was Dean Acheson, Secretary of State under President Truman

Extract of a letter from Enniskillen, May 2nd (1780).

This day ended the assizes held here by special commission, at which the following persons were tried and found guilty, upon the clearest evidence, for robbing James Armstrong of Lisgoole, Esq; viz. Francis Mc Cue, alias Francis Dough, the captain of the gang, Richard Monkham, Patrick Corrigan, James Mc Cabe, Alex. Wright and Bryan Mc Alin. These unhappy, yet daring and dangerous men, have received sentence to be executed. The Judges, Baron Hamilton and Justice Lill, in their charges gave the greatest praise to the Enniskillen Volunteers; and indeed they well deserve the praise and warmest thanks of every man in the country, and particularly of those whose property exposed them to the attacks and ravages of the above desperate gang; and by their watchful attention, in now mounting an officer�„s guard, they will prevent a possibility of a rescue or escape, until they finish the arduous work they have begun, by seeing the laws of their country fully executed.�*

At his hanging Frank took advantage of the privilege of addressing the crowd and went on at some length. He was eventually interrupted by the hangman and told to finish. He turned to him and said - "for you it's a long day but a short one for me" and continued his final address.


CASSIDY emigrant was Patrick CASSIDY (b 1804) probably in Drumgormly townland, near Derrygonnelly in Co Fermanagh Ireland. He married Mary McCaffrey(b 1816) and moved to the US about 1842 with their 4 oldest children (Peter, Mary, Charles, and my ggrandfather--Patrick Francis b 1841) had 5 more there ( Ann Virginia, Mary Catherine, Elizabeth, Catherine, Edward Francis). (Mary Catherine and Catherine both died in infancy.) Patrick wrote poetry, sometimes under the penname Knockmore. He died in 1894. Mary's cousin, Peter B O Flanagan (b 1807) was from Aghakeerin townland and moved to the US to enter the Jesuits. He became pastor of Holy Trinity parish in Georgetwon, DC. Possible siblings of Patrick are Michael and Francis Cassidy and Bridget Cassidy McBrien (McBrine).

Other related families in Fermanagh are Flanagan and Love.
