Well Donegal is the area that the McElhinney name is most popular. This area is so scenic absolutely typical of the Irish countryside. I urge you to visit someday, you will be amazed.

I dont know if you're aware but the National Grounds in Glenveagh, along with the Castle, which is part of the National Trust now, was once owned by Henry (Harry) McElhinney, a second generation American, who bought the castle from one of the designers of the castle, John Adair around the 1930's. It is worthwhile checking to see if there are any websites on this.
Try this link.
Also there is a famous Irish actor called Ian McElhinney, worth checking on his careertoo. If you need any more 'home' info, be sure to mail me Stephen, its been great talking to you.
Keep in touch,
PS: I dont know if your familiar with Irish - Gaelic,but 'eile' means 'the other'.
