  2. Hi,
    delighted to find your blog today. I am researching my great-uncle Paddy McLogan and his involvement in the movement from c1914 when he joined the Irish Volunteers in his native Armagh until his death in July 1964. He is buried in Mulhuddart cemetery.

    Also interested in the Dobbyn family as Paddy married Henry Dobbyn’s daughter Mary Kathleen. The Dobbyn’s are buried in Glasnevin,and I have visited them there.

    I am researching my grand-uncle Paddy McLogan of South Armagh and hhis long involvement in the movement from c1914 when he joined the Irish Volunteers up to his death in 1964. He was very active in Belfast and the Glens of Antrim and during his time there met and married Mary Kathleen Dobbyn daughter of Henry Dobbyn who was instrumental in the reforming of the IRA in the 1920’s

    Looking forward to learning more
