Catherine (McGarvey) Dougherty’s brother in the white cap came to America in the 1970’s.

Hi Martin,
Attached are some photos from my recent trip to Donegal-
From Margaret

Carrick cnon fola

I think the hill in the background of your photo is Cnoc Fola – it’s the only hill in the Carrick / Derrybeg area that’s fairly close. The Derryveagh mountains (including Muckish) are miles away and have a very distinctive profile.
Photos below were taken in Carrick and show Cnoc Fola in the background.

Old St Mary’s church, Derrybeg _ where all our McGarvey ancestors were baptized and married. This church was the scene of a great flood in August 1880 – 5 people drowned at Mass including my great grandmother Grace McGarvey
