Looking to connect with family still in Ireland

Hoping to connect with relatives of Manus BOYLE and Bridget McFADDEN BOYLE who lived in Dungloe, Co. Donegal in the 1800's. Manus was a draper in the town. Manus had a brother Owen. We know of some of their children, John, James, Delia and Hannah. We suspect that Manus passed away sometime in the 1880's because Bridget and most of the children went to the United States around that time. Bridget was born in Fintown, Co Donegal.

If you are connected to this family, please contact me at: Manus and Bridget are my GG Grandparents

  • Hi 

    Have you tried the website Donegal Genealogy Resources - The parish of Templecrone I think, is the Parish that Dungloe is located in.

  • Post your query on the following Facebook Forum: Upper Rosses History Discussion Forum.  You have to join the group in order to post a query.  I'm quite sure someone there will be able to help you with information on this family's background.  Dungloe is a townland in Templecrone Parish, Donegal, in an area known as "The Rosses."
