red mail Carlingford Lough
I am still hoping to get some information on a purported historical event which took place on Carlingford Lough roughly between 1798 and 1805. A French fleet was supposedly covered in mist on the Lough and when it cleared they were surrounded by a British fleet. My husband's ancestor was supposedly captured and later settled and married in the Dundalk area. I would be most grateful if anyone could pinpoint this event if it actually took place and give any further details as I have been trying for a very long time to establish the historical facts or not of this story. Many thanks. Catherine

peter rice
I am looking for info on my gt gt gt grandad,Peter Rice,who i believe came from Dundalk. He was born(i think)c1813. I am descended from his daughter,Catherine Rice,who was born c 1837,and married Denis Mahon(Mahan)in 1861,in Ashton-in-Makerfield.,Lancashire.She died a few days after giving birth to their 4th child in Mar.1868. I am trying to find out who Peter was married to,also any siblings of Catherine. In the 1861 UK census,I found a Catherine Rice,(b.c1837)in lodgings in Louth,Lincolnshire....also at the lodging house was a Bridget Rice,(b.c 1834)....could they be sisters? In the 1861 UK census,the year he married Catherine,Denis Mahon was lodging in a house with a Michael Rice(b.c1839)...could this be Catherines' brother? Need to establish a connection between the 3 of them and Peter Rice. It would make a lot of sense for them all to go to England....there was the Great Famine in Ireland,1845-1852,and there was mass starvation,disease and emigration. Does anyone recognize these names? I now live 16mls from Dundalk,so if anybody knows where it is possible for me to look through the Births,Marriage and Death records,and copy relevant names out. I would appreciate any help. Thankyou., Elaine
