Letterkenny - Kilmacrennan
Hi my mother was Elizabeth McQuilkin born in Port Glasgow, Scotland in 1937. She immigrated to the US in 1956. When we would visit my grandparents in Scotland we would always take a week and go to Ireland. We always went to Letterkenny to visit relatives of my mothers. Unfortunately I don't remember their names, but know they lived in a house near Doon Well. I know my mother's cousin was Mary McGinty before she married, Mary had at least two daughters and maybe a third child, and her brother was named Daniel McGinty. I know that Mary died several years ago and one of her daughters was a nurse. I am hoping for information not just on the family but also of the town my mother would have stayed in during the war. She went with her grandmother to Letterkenny during the war, I believe she attended school with Mary, although my mother was probably three or fours years younger. My mother would have been 85 next week and as been gone for ten years now. I am just trying to fill in the blanks, like everyone, I wish I had paid more attention to what she was saying, and still miss her everyday. Thank you so much for any help. Cathy
