  1. I found your page about Joseph Campbell and Bishop Mc Colgan just now whilst I was browing the net’. i really must tell you that I am a close relative of Joseph Campbell, in fact he was my great- great grandfather born in Carndoagh in 1730..I and my siblings were born there too. If you are interested, I could email you a photo of the old farmhouse as it once was.

    • Thanks Patricia for getting in contact. I would like to have the photo please and more about your link to Joseph Campbell if you have the details. You may be interested in the 1937 Folklore Collection which we exhibited at the Colgan weekend in Carn. The Carn schools collection is in the library in the town and has a lot about Carndoagh. If there is additional family information about Joseph let me know eg where he is buried etc.

  2. Came across your site by chance when I was writing a short post re Ludwig Schenkel. Suspect you may well have discussed Ludwig with my father. Is your Donegal book published as yet?

  3. wonderful points altogether, you simply received a brand new reader.
    What would you recommend in regards to your publish that you
    just made a few days in the past? Any sure?

  4. Hi, Sean. I am trying to find any information relating to the history of the old School at Templemoyle, together with some pictures of the original building and pupils. Would you be able to point me in the right direction. Many thanks. Kay

  5. Interesting story on the Harveys. My family worked the land of the Harveys. I am trying to figure out when they came over from Scotland. My great grandfather was Robert Dykes, son of John Dykes and Elizabeth McLaughlin. I am hoping if I search the Harvey’s I should be able to find out the year the Dykes came to Malin or at least to Ireland.

  6. Hi Sean, I was hoping you might have some history on the McSheffrey Bridge, i believe it is on the road to Carndonagh. Thank-you for any help.

    Kind Regards

      The bridge was built by the DonegalGrand Jury which met regularly in Lifford and was composed mainly of landlords until it was abolished with the setting up of Donegal County Council. Landlords such as Harveys of Malin and Youngs of Culdaff would have been active in promoting it as previously the area was tidal and cut off from markets in Carn and Derry. The bridge was an important junction, like O Connell St. Bridge in Dublin today. I would need to check the Grand Jury Records in Letterkenny Library before I write more.
