    Picture Note: 1864 map of Slieve Gullion and of surrounding townlands adjoining the Longfield Road. The five holdings, Nos 2 to 6, each show the tenant's name in 1864 followed by the year that a subsequent tenant took over - up to 1929.
    Picture Note: In land plot 2 John Hannaway left home in 1867 and married into Levelamore, inheriting its tenancy in 1886. Back in Slieve Gullion John later took over his parent's land (plot 2) in 1916, following the death of his brother Hughie. In plot 4 Michael McGee was from Denis (Dinny) Mcgee's household (No 5); Michael had married neigbour Catherine Farmer in 1865.
    Picture Note: These households were at 850 feet and acess down to the (Longfield) road was mostly through Aughadanove townland. Since most could not read at this time "Aughadanove" was invariably recorded as their home on births/marriages, rather than "Slieve Gullion".

  • Notes 
    • Godparents to Mary Boyle in 1863 were Owen Boyle & Catherine Farmer. Catherine born in 1838, was from Aughadnove. Two years later (1865) Catherine married Michael Mcgee also from Aughadanove. 17 years later (1882) Mary Boyle now aged 19, married Michael's younger brother James McGee.

      In the 1901 census entry (see copy in Media) Mary Boyle states her age as 36 - born 1865. In the 1911 census aged 49 Mary was born in 1862! Such discrepancy was common where individuals could not read or write.
      Mary Boyle is identified as mother to Bridget- in Bridget's 1920 marriage certificate.
