Thanks for your replies. I am sorry that I have not replied sooner but a neighbours son was drowned tragically at the weekend he was only 23 RIP , so with the funeral etc, it is only now that I have come on line.
I was so sorry to hear about your difficulties. land is always a sore spot with some people. I am married to a farmer... need I say more.
On my great grand parents marriage ( James McGowan & Bridget Mc Guinness) at st. Marys Church, Bundoran on 29th June, 1899, Bridgets father is listed as John Mc Guinness and her residence at time of marriage only states Ballyshannon. No street or townsland given only ballyshannon.
so maybe they lived on the Ballyshannon/Bundoran border. I dont know. So thats why I wrote to the priest to see if his church registers carried any further information. And it may not even be the right marriage certificate. This is the one ireceived from Donegal Ancestry, in Ramelton, Co. Donegal.
I wrote to them, when I received no reply from the priest.
