Hello Patrick,

Looking at your request, I know Ray Mc Gowan in Portlaoise for the last 20 years, he is around 45 years.
I was in Portarlington cemetery and noticed the name Mc Gowan, I had'nt time to index the name, but if you think these are of use, I will go back and record the headstones. At least it's a start.
I will keep you informed of any other Mc Gowans I come across
Happy New Year
Jack
