To Yllek and Frainj
Apologies for not replying to your posts.  I did not receive notifications due to changing my email shortly after my last post.
I have followed up some of the information I found and the direct lines from my ggrandfather have very few descendants living in Ireland.
John and family (son of John, my grandfathers (Pat) brother and brother to Thomas) live in Dublin but the rest of the family (98 at the last count) live in the Aston/Birmingham area.  I remember as a child my grandfather went to Birmingham for two weeks each year and two weeks to Carrownaraha to visit.
They originally went to England for about six months during winter to obtain work in the building trade and spent the rest of the year on the smallholding. As time went on some of the family took permanent work in England and as the parents and grandparents got older and started to retire they also moved to be near the family.
As to the Doogery and its variants the dwelling was near the N5 the Castlebar to Swinford road at Carrownaraha (a suburb of Ballyvary).  A couple of miles after passing through Ballyvary there is a road on the right hand side of the road that leads to the dwelling.  It is also the road to Doohana (?!).
I have a lot more information if you are still following this line.

Hi Nurmal,

Sarah

Hi Nurmal,

I received your message shortly before I went on holiday and intended to get back to you when I returned.  Many things have happened since and I regret that I never got back to you. 

I have also gathered up a lot of information about the family since I last heard from you.  I have found a record in the 1911 UK census that shows Pat and John lodging at Wombwell. Their occupation was given as Coal Miner Dataller.  I know that my grandfather, John, left mining during the 1926 general strike and worked on the buildings.  I have als found various records about Michael who went to America.  Bridget married Michael Kelly in 1914 in Straid Church. They lived in Cloonconlon near Straide for the remainder of their 51 yrs. together.

I change computer about 6 months ago and have done no work on family history in the last 8/9 months.  I have a lot of documentation taken from various sources an it will take some time to reassemble some of it.  I have looked briefly for the census record mentioned above and have not been able to locate it quickly.    I will do a bit of work on this over the coming week.  I would prefer to correspond over direct email (*).
I tried to send the actual address using this forum but the email address was deleted.  Can you send me your new email to my address.
