Wow! This is fantastic information, are you also related in Regan Family? Thank you so much for the information, I have  a copy of a huge family tree on 2 bits of wallpaper scanned from The Market Inn in Draperstown (owned by Maurice Regan) and trying to find the right line!

October 1921:



Thank you for locating this CMcG, this has come as a shock to me as I was not aware of it.

That house brought nothing but bad luck to my family, this is but another one to add to the list.

Thanks again.

Yes these are the children of my Great Aunt Peggy, my Great Grandparents Jim & Brigid stood for their older boy Manus. Their story is so very sad.

Sadly within a few years both Manus & little John (known as Jackie) died. Jackie in tragic circumstances aged just 2 and Manus just days later to illness aged just 4 😥. Iím in contact with their niece in the States now and have since been sent pictures of the wee boys. They were lovely too 😥

My Great Grandmother Brigid then died in childbirth, a few years after that. She was only 29 and left 3 little boys behind ☹️.

They all resided at that house at Great Georgeís Street at one time, hence why I thought it was such bad luck.

Just thought youíd be interested after locating this info for us, thanks CMcG.
