I have relatives in Ballyshannon, Donegal, And also in the Belleek area of Fermanagh, named Banigan(bannigan). There are some members of these families that I can't trace. My records go back to the 1884 census (Foggy).but from about 1880 on are fairly decent,with a few family members missing. Maybe we can make a match and connect the Monaghan and the Donegal Banigans(no matter which way we spell it). I think that they are connected,but where, how, and when. I usually keep a check on BANIGAN.
