I am diligently searching through my reference material to find the entry which credits the McCloskeys with being the erenachs of church properties in Dungiven parish, but haven't found it yet. I was pretty sure it came from a back issue of Benbradagh. Patrick was born about 1816 and emigrated to America about 1839. He was known to have been a schoolmaster in Ireland, and the most likely (only) match I have found was from the Ordinance Survey memoirs that a Patrick McCloskey taught at Cashel in 1834. Since he named his first born son Thomas, I had been assuming that his father may have been named Thomas. There was a Thomas McCloskey listed in Crabarkey at the 1831 census. I thought the erenach reference was most pertinent, since Patrick taught in the abandoned "thatched chapel" in Cashel.
