Below are photos that are slightly more local to my Flanagan and Maguire ancestors of Termonfechin, Louth, Ireland. Clogherhead is just slightly north of Termonfechin.

I've been trying to locate the parochial parish name for Clogher. That is to say, or ask, is the parish for Clogher called Clogherhead? It makes a difference when you want to research Roman Catholic Church records at the LDS library. I have not attempted to do this research but may someday. I know that there are Maguire's buried in Clogher. They seem to be my ancestors.
My final comment is about my Kirwan family line. I just ran across some information online that indicates Kirwan's originating in Louth. While the family surname of Kirwan is known well in Galway, they were first in Louth. I find this fascinating and need to research the Kirwan's further. Maybe my Judith Kirwan and her father, Nicholas Kirwan, from this area of Louth are of these Kirwan's. I kind of think they are and tracing this line could get interesting.
