Cashel Crossroads at Tawlaght, Legvoy & Toorymartin

Caiseal aka Cashel is a small village, 2 miles from Carrick-on-Shannon, on the road to Croghan. Today, modern maps do not reveal its location, however it is still known locally as the name of this district. It can be found on the crossrads where the townlands of Tawlaght, Legvoy and Toorymartin meet.

Cashel appears as an address in the 1749 Census of Elphin. back then it was home to just 2 Catholic families:  Ford and McGowan (both cottagers). By 1839, Cashel village had its own pound.

Cashell also appears in early 19th Century parish registers (which presents some confusion). In 1815 Cashel's residents included:

Cath. Flanagan (1785-1822)

Bernard / Bryan Devlin & Sara O’Neil

Dennis Horan & Mary Butler

Michael Maguire & Mary Connor

In 1829 Andrew Boyd & Cath Dyer are recorded here. Also Pat McGuire & Brigid McGreevy in 1830.

Cashel House the residence of Erasmus Lloyd Esq. was in the adjoining townland of Tawlaght. He represented William Lloyd who had held the lease to "Carroward and Cashell" and other townlands in this district prior to 1855. Lloyd was organising hunting meets there in 1861.  By the turn of the century, this farmhouse had become the home of William Boyd.

  • Thank you Rua for your great information! Much appreciated. I was wondering if you might have an idea of who the Flanagan patriarch might have been for those young Flanagan’s born about 1790 to 1810. I am sorry I cannot read the old Easternow tombstones that have Flanagan on them. Do you happen to see any Madden’s in that  area? Also did the Irish use any naming practice when naming their children?  Thank you so much for your help.

    Tá fáilte romhat ... you're welcome!

    For determining the patriarch...

    (a) The 1749 Elphin Census is my go-to resource (however, sometimes it will only records an initial for the first name; however it does name of the townand!) 

    Sadly, no Flanagan is recorded in the civil parish of Killukin or Killummod; which means the 3 Flanagan Flaxgrowers named above blew-in to these parishes sometime in the late 18th century. That  Edmund Flanagan is the only Flanagan named on the Killukin Flaxgrower's list in 1796, is not enough to go on (as not everyone was keen to grow flax). 

    (b) Naming traditions were usually well-adhered to in this parish prior to the Great Famine. Here is a good guide to Irish naming patterns. However, as early parish records are patchy, this approach may not yield an obvious result. Usually extended family research to determine siblings is required, who may have better records with more clues. 

     

    FLANAGANS in 1749

    In the 1749 Census, 49 Flannagan names are recorded in Co. Roscommon (Diocese of Elphin only). 

    Croghan RC Parish records cover the civil parishes of KILLUMMOD (ROSCOMMON) , KILLUKIN BOYLE (ROSCOMMON) ,  ESTERSNOW (ROSCOMMON) in full and a handful of townlands in the civil parishes of TUMNA (ROSCOMMON) and KILCOLAGH (ROSCOMMON).

    Of these, only 2 Flanagan names appear in the 1749 census, both in the civil parish of Tumna:

    E Flanagan of Drumsillagh TUMNA NORTH (Cootehall RC Parish

    M.D. Flanagan of Hughestown TUMNA SOUTH (Croghan RC Parish)

    As Cashel is on the border of TUMNA south, the most likely migration was from there. Hughestown is just 2 townlands north of Cashel so ... M.D. Flanagan (labourer) of Hughestown would be of interest. Hughestown Flanagans also appear in the Croghan RC parish registers.

    In early Croghan records, given names with M appear as follows

    Malachy Flanagan appears in 1811 (son of Pat Flanagan of Culleenatreen; nephew of Malachy, Michael, James) and 1842 (Malachy's son).

    Michael Flanagan appears in 1816 (son of Pat Flanagan of Cloonshaghan; nephew of Michael) and 1825, 1838, 1841, 1846, 1852.

    Martin Flanagan appears in 1839 and 1851 (son of Peter), and Martin Joseph (of Faus) in 1889.

  • MADDEN

    Yes, there are also Maddens in this area (in and around Boher). Is it Thomas Madden & Brigid Flanagan you are looking for?

  • I have found the records in Killukin of baptised children. I have not found their marraige records or who Thomas Madden and Bridget Flanagan's parents might be. I would really love to find their immigration records to Ontario Canada about the year 1838. They would have a lot of children to take with them. Only John, Thomas and a Micheal made it to America by 1860's. I found records that an Elder Thomas Madden and Briget Flanagan signed papers for Thomas's marraige to a Mary Noonan in the late 1860's. Mary's parents were a Patrick Noonan and her mothers last name was Quinn. Thomas said that his parents werre from Roscommon , near the River Shannon, he wass from the O'Madden clan.   My husband has Niall of Nine Hostages in his DNA, so I assume that he comes from from the old tribes of Ireland.

    Rua, your help is so valuable.  Thank you!!!!
