hello again gail,i hope that the 1851 griffiths valuation data was of some use to you+yours.on the matter of the mahagans,i believe that i wrote to two ladies named lisa and mary, i cannot recall what info that i could have given to them because my file does not contain any mahagans?i also have a note about a jesse mahagan and her brother vic from texas.i am hoping to add them in with ruth mehagan smith and her brother mike,also from texas.which brings me to your meehagans.i have been trying to get some history on a castle site/townland named castlemehigan down on the mizen,across the harbor,overlooking crookhaven,parish of kilmoe.i imagine that it was a standard mahony castle about thirty foot square,sixty four feet high sitting on a promotory,146ft.high,commanding a stupendous view of land and sea.it was built in 1540 and lost to the cromwellians in 1640 as a result of the mahonys and the mehigans taking part on the losing side in the battle of kinsale.more to follow later,jim mehigan
