My name is Michelle McCann and I'm currently searching for some information on a family of Kelly's from Donagh Parish, in the townland of Killycooley from the 19th century.
Owen Kelly was sent to prison in 1881 for killing a man named Michael McGale during a row on St Patrick's day. I'm wondering if you have any connection or have ever heard the story before.
I've just finished writing a book on deaths and murders in County Monaghan. I'm finalizing some edits and just wondered if there's anybody out there who's heard the story before.
