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.
