571). Bhí sé i láthair ar chruinniú de Choiste Cheanntair Chaisleán an
Mhuillinn ar 8 Nollaig 1901 (IN 12/12/1901).

Attended St Patrick's Drumcondra for 1 year 1902-3, aged 20 at 1/1/1903.
School: St Malachy's, Ballymacarrett, appointed asst in 1896. (BL)

Represented Glenshesk on the council of the first Feis na nGleann in 1904,
when the prime movers included F J Bigger (also associated with Ardglass)
and Roger Casement (Jonathan Bell, "Intelligent revivalism: the first Feis
na nGleann, 1904" in "The Use of Tradition", Ulster Folk Museum, 1988, pp.
3, 11 fn 6; Feis na nGleann 2005 p 100). Bhéadh Stiofán McGeown mór le F J
Bigger, a rabh baint aige le Ardglass. Chuaidh sé go conndae Aontrama ina
dhiaidh sin (EG). Bhí Bigger agus Roger Casement go mór chun tosaigh san
Fheis fosta.

Bhí sé ag teagasc in Dunsfort i scoil na mbuachall (St Mary's Public
Elementary School) nuair a bhí Ellen Gracey ar scoil ann thart fá 1912.
Bhí sé sna triochaidí de aois san am sin. Fear ciúin a bhí ann. Bhí sé ina
phoblachtóir. Bhí sé cruaidh go leor ach é ina mhúinteoir mhaith. Bhí dúil
mhór aige sa Ghaedhilg, agus chuir sé rang ag gabháil trí lá den
tseachtmhain, ar feadh leathuair de chluig, i ndiaidh ghnáth-am scoile.
Bhí cead ag na buachaillí agus ag na cailíní theacht ar an rang seo, ach
ní rabh fiachadh orthu sin a dheánamh. (EG)

Lá Bealtaine

The following poem, describing the May custom of gathering flowers and
throwing them on the roofs of the houses and byres, was recollected by
Ellen Gracey, who learned it at school in Dunsfort around 1912 or 1913.
He did not use a book while teaching this poem.

But see Cuchulainn Readers, Leabhar 3, pp 96–7

A Mháraí bheag, a Mháraí bheag,
A bhíos i gcomhnuidhe ag gáiridhe,
An dtiocfaidh tú, an dtiocfaidh tú,
A chruinniughadh liom na blátha.

An dtuigeann tú, an dtuigeann tú,
An lá bheás ann amárach?
Lá Bealtaine, lá Bealtaine,
?a fal le geal? an tSamhraidh.

Cois na habhna, cois na habhna,
Suas fríd na halltáin,
Síos an cnoc is suas an cnoc,
Is timcheall an tsean-?lath? (lafta?).

An samharclann, an samharclann,
Ar fagháil anois go farsainn,
Is neoiníní is pabhsaithe,
Ar ?lanaí? (léana?), cnoc is alltán.

Béidh canna agam, béidh canna agam,
Is cliabh agat a Mháraí,
Is pillfidh muid, is pillfidh muid,
Nuair bhéas siad lán de bhlátha.

Is dheánfaidh muid, is dheánfaidh muid,
Coróin de thógáil bláthaí,
Is caithfidh tú, is caithfidh tú,
An choróin seo a chaitheamh.

Ellen remembered a few other fragments of the poem, including:

Ag na doirse, ag na geataí
Is suas ?a fal raha?

Is caithfidh muid, is caithfidh muid,
Na blátha ar na scrátha.

and she says that the whole event finished with a "rinnce mór" or "rinnce fada".

"Father Bernard TREANOR, the present Parish Priest, followed Canon O'ROURKE to Dromara, on January 22nd 1972. A native of Carrickmastay, Warrenpoint, he was educated at St. Colman's College Newry and Maynooth, at Fribourg University 1938 to 1939 and at Dromantine College where he was ordained by Most Rev Dr. Mulhern on the 10th March 1940. Father TREANOR was on supply in the Dromore Diocese during 1940 and until 22nd August 1942, when he was appointed Chaplain to the Convent of Mercy Home, Warrenpoint. He was on sick leave from August 1944 to October 1946, after which he was on mission to Los Angeles Diocese until July 1947. On returning to the Diocese he was again on supply until December 1948, when he became Chaplain to the Convent of Mercy, Warrenpoint, and on July 8th 1949, he was appointed Chaplain to Cabra Convent. On March 20th 1955 Father TREANOR was appointed C.C. in Annaclone from where he was transferred to Hilltown on 1st October 1961, remaining there until his appointment as Parish Priest of Dromara. On 24th January 1984 he was made a Canon of the Diocesan Chapter."

Wills 1971: John Michael Davitt McGuigan, 33 Cliftonpark Avenue, retired schoolteacher, died 3/12/1970. To Thomas Loughlin McGuigan, cashier.

Deir Aodán Mac Póilín go bhfuair na Bráithre Begley agus Beausang togha a chuid leabhar nuair a fuair sé bás. Glaodhadh arais orthu an dara huair, agus annsin caitheadh amach ar fhág siad. Fuair Aodán an t-eolas seo ó nighean Mhicheáil a bhí ag obair i Leabharlann na Cathrach, Béal Fearsaide,  fá 1969
[ACH deir Br Beausang nach mó ná go rabh aithne aige ar Mhicheál, agus nach bhfuair sé leabhar ar bith uaidh — caithfidh sé gur bráthair eighinteacht eile a bhí ann. D'ainmnigh Br Beausang bráithre eile a bhí ann roimhe ag teagasc Gaeilge, ach tá siad uilig marbh. Shíl sé fosta go rabh seans gur fhág Micheál a chuid leabharthaí ag Seán de Rís, nó ag an ArdScoil.]

? Patrick Pearse McGuigan, Kilclief, died 22 November 1974 (1975 Wills).  Estate to Eamonn McGuigan, brother.

Deir Séamus Mac Diarmada go bhfuil nighean leis, Mrs Una O'Boyle, beo go fóill i nDún Pádraig; baint acu le comhlucht Hugh J O'Boyle.

Thug mé cuairt ar mhac leis, Thomas McGuigan, ag Ballykine ar 24 Bealtaine 1996. Seo a d'innis sé domh.

"Rugadh Micheál Mac Uiginn ar 4/7/1886, nó b'fhéidir 1885, i mBaile na hInnse, áit a rabh public house agus livery ag a athair, Edward. Flynn an sloinneadh a bhí ar mháthair Mhicheáil, ba as Burren, ar an bhealach go Droim Mór, í; bhí Edward pósta faoi dhó. Bhí leas-dhearthair ag Micheál, arbh ainm dó James Henry McGuigan; bhí sé ina harbour-master in Hong Kong.

"Nuair a d'éirigh Edward as a chuid oibre, cheannaigh sé feirm agus teach i mBallykine, áit a bhfuil Thomas ina chomhnaidhe inniu.

"D'fhág Micheál an scoil nuair a bhí sé 9 mbliadhna d'aois. D'fhoghluim sé Gaedhilg leis féin. Bhain sé amach Dip Ed in Ollscoil na Ríona."

Tá comhfhreagras ó FJ Bigger, Roger Casement, Séamus Ó Searcaigh agus Michael Davitt ag Thomas McGuigan. Is cosamhail ó litir Shéamuis Uí Shearcaigh dar dáta 17.8.1917, gur le goirid roimhe sin a fuair athair Mhicheáil bás.

Bhí cúigear páiste ag Micheál lena chéad bhean: Maureen (an dara nighean den ainm sin; fuair an chéad Mháirín bás go hóg), Patricia, Eamonn, Pearse agus Una. Ba í Mary O'Neill ó Bhaile Átha Cliath an dara bean ag Micheál; pósadh iad in 1923. Bhí naonúr aige lena dara bean: Laurence, Eithne, Síle, Thomas, Eileen, Ann, Ursula (a d'obair seal sa Leabharlann Lárnach i mBéal Feairste) agus Joan.

Cuireadh tús le Coláiste Chomhghaill in 1905. Cuireadh tús le Coláiste Mhaolmhaodhog i Rachreann in 1914, agus lean sé ar aghaidh go dtí 1922 ar a laighead.
