red mail Photographs/Info re.Thatched Cottages at site.
Hello everyone, McCAWLEY;McAULAY;MACAULEY I just wondered if anyone could kindly help me with a photo/or, photos of old BALLYNESS village, (or, has been spelled BALLYNEOS), thatched cottages at CROSSROADS, Donegal - from around 1800s/early1900s. Also, I have been told my Dad used to drink at BIDDY'S BAR when he was a young man and I believe I have found it on the internet, though building somewhat expanded now, according to an old photo I saw on the website. I wondered if anyone might be able to share a photo from that era, of BIDDY O'BARNES pub and if possible a photo of the ELDERLY LADY who, I believe owned the pub. If I could just ask to ask one thing further, I wondered if anyone could tell me if there are still cottages standing at the Ballyness village site, it was my Dad's family home, he was born in 1894, my Grandfather was a farmer and died very young I believe. Great Grandad was a Land Steward I think. I visited there around late 1980s or early 1990s and saw the thatched cottage then. At that time, a gentleman called Mr. Feeney, I think he said, lived next door to the cottage, (amazing on the fiddle and made us a lovely cup of tea and very welcome). Only wish I had asked him so much more, as he knew my family. I believe the surname "Feeney" might be on one of the census forms I have, so think I am right with the gentleman's name. Census form found thanks to good advice from William. Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to give me. Kind regards Elizabeth
