I am researching the life of Captain Paddy Saul (mariner, aviation pioneer, sea-angling father-figure). In retirement, he had an angler's shop at Newry St, Carlingford-1964-1968. Any information on his promotion of local angling, or of work on promoting this by others (e.g Fr Reid?) would be welcome. (I worked in Customs & Excise and lived Carlingford for a time about then)More > (0 comments)

Trying to climb King John's Castle was a memory I had in 6th Class I think... While my mum was in shopping in Joe McKevitts myself and Willie Doherty and Declan Harper R. I. P. would try and execute this daring feat... Can remember Declan getting to the top... Of course I had to dash back to the car otherwise I would have to walk to Omeath... Great times back in the day... Great memories loosing all the marbles that my brother,Pat had won at school... Wasn't one bit impressed I might add... The micenars and the red lady...list is endless..More > (0 comments)

Rice, Laurence Joseph, Cornamucklagh, Omeath,Co Louth, by Laura Rice

Your Message Dear Kevin Woods,

Thank you for all the work you have put into recording the history of Carlingford and the Cooley Peninsula. I only wish I’d discovered the site sooner. My husband, Karim Hamdy, and I are traveling to Omeath next week (from Tunisia where we are at the moment) so that I can see where my great grandfather was born and grew up. Lawrence Joseph Rice (1847-1928) immigrated to Elmira, NY in 1865. He lived there, married Ellen O’Connell, and raised 6 sons and a daughter. When he retired, he returned to Ireland to visit family for about 5 months in 1920. Information from the passenger lists on his trip over say his destination was Cornamucklagh. The manifest on his return trip gave his last contact as G.J. McArdle in Newry. I’ve been trying to figure out who his parents were but have found nothing conclusive yet. His sister Bridget Rice immigrated to live with his family in 1914. When he died, the obituary says he was survived by Bridget (14 years his junior) in Elmira and a sister Anna Rice in Omeath. I know there were several Rice families on the peninsula, but none of the baptism records seem to list a Lauce, Bridget and Anna in one family, though there is a Lauce Rice, son of Owen Rice and Cath Sloane, who was baptized in 1847. Any insights you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for all the pictures and information about the peninsula,

LauraMore > (0 comments)
