Thank you for the adstraw suggestion, I can see a few minnagh/Moynagh
Cullinan marriages in the Omagh records.
I had been concentrating on the Clogher records but will now move on to Omagh.

The dau of Maria Cullinan and Joseph Moyna who was born in NZ and wrote in the wills 1924. That Maria was from Newtown Siebil, and Joseph from Augher these are hard to find on family search as all are not indexed and i had to go one by one.

Thank you all for your time
Kind regards

On Griffiths Valuation (1860) there are several entries for  a Michael Moynagh, Mynagh who leases property in the Augher tenements/Clogher.

There are 18 entries for Cullinan, some in Clogher. 

From the topographical dictionary of Ireland of 1837 come these descriptions of

https://www.libraryireland.com/topog/N/Newtown-Stewart-Strabane-Tyrone.php

In the 1841 census there is reference to a Joseph Moynagh

Townland:   Nurchossy Irish, Nurchossy Scotch
Parish:   Clogher
Barony:   Clogher
County:   Tyrone
 The looking to see if anyone is still there in the 1901 census there are
Robert Moynagh 60 (born 1841) who is there with his wife Margaret as a caretaker to John Barnett

thank you Shanreagh
once i started adding moynagh instead of moyna i have progressed i have been in touch with the family of michael from the auger tenements and their family is well researched in fact they seem to own most of the moynaghs of co tyrone and co monaghan,so am working on the moyna's left over.
i have now found the immigration record also for maria moyna and her husband Joseph and her sister annie to NZ.
as i thought joseph and maria married in co tyrone and 3 months later came to Nz.
Unfortunately the clogher marriage record does not list the parents of Maria maybe the priest had forgotton them by the time he wrote up the record,frustrating to say the least.
thank you again for your efforts as always most appreciated
