Birth: 1786
County Donegal, Ireland
Death: unknown
County Donegal, Ireland

Catherine McDaid was my gr, gr, grandmother married to Michael Gallagher. She was born at the Casheloogary Homestead.

Death was in Casheloogary. "(Casheloogary)-Irish-English (Castle O'Gary)" Quote: Kathleen Gallagher Schmook my cousin.

"Ruins of the Castle were in McDaid's Lane- home of Catherine McDaid.)" Quote: Kathleen Gallagher Schmook daughter of Uncle Hughie."

Email from Monica Dignam Balkema who just visited this last June 2009.

Cashelogary is just now a wide spot in an unpaved lane. It seems to consist primarily now of sheep fields but the house from which your father and my grandfather emerged is a poignant ruins at the end of ‘Gallagher's Lane", a name that the current owner a man by the name of Peter seems to continue to use.

I have a rich, strong heritage,
On the path to my destiny;
Each sorrow, joy and struggle.
Has become my legacy.

For on that path were stepping stones,
Some paved with bitter tears;
By those who came before me,
Who walked there through the years.

Their gift was a better tomorrow,
And a light to shine my way;
I walk on my path with head held high,
Because of yesterday.

Lord, help me dig into the past, And sift the sands of time, That I might find the roots that made This family tree mine. Lord, help me trace the ancient roads, On which my fathers trod, And led them through so many lands, To find our present sod.
- Love Your Great Great Granddaughter, Sharon
