Jan.30,1827 "In the Dublin Morning Register, January 30th, 1827. The Catholic Association’s report states that " 15 Backsiidings (A Catholic who was converted to Protestantism and reverted to Catholicism was called a Backslider) have taken place; 15 more expected". It gives evidence of one such person - Mrs. Bridget Coyle -- a widow with a 9 months old child. In her testimony she stated that “she was induced to change, to the Established Church by the promises of Christy Foster and Paget to come to Farnham (Residence of Lord and Lady Farnham Evangelical Centre). They offered her an acre of land during her life which they would set and sew for her, She went to Farnham with her baby. When she came there she got it dinncr of beef and potatoes. She was given a shawl, an apron, a pair of shoes, a cap and bonnet, and a flannel coat for the child. She was brought to the church in Cavan then. the next day she was brought home. On Christmas Day she returned to the Chapel in Ballymachugh where she asked pardon of God, and of the congregation for the scandal she had caused. On the following day Paget came to her house and after he was a long time reading the Bible for her and preaching in vain, he got into a great passion. He took ahold of her by the shoulder and swore he would summons her and took the shoes off her saying he would Come up to her. Donohoe tried to retrieve the clothes which she would not give to him. On Saturday week, Henry Tilson came to her and seized her potatoes, her own old blanket, two pots and two gallons - one of them belonging to a beggarwoman, and also a chest and by the order of Mr. Gostin, Lord Farnhain's Agent, she got notice to quit her little cabin. She has since been obliged to took to her hereabouts for the support of herself and her child".The In his second letter to Lord Farnham, the Right Rev. J. McHale, D.D. accuses Lord Farnham “ofthe employing of a proffessing Catholic as the seducer of other Catholics into the snares, of apostitcy". He cites the case of Captain Pringle - one of Lord Farnham's Agents who admitted a preference for Roman Catholic teachers, in an interview with the Commissioners of Education, because "they are a great deal more acceptable to the people and it takes away the handle of the priests, when they say the Society is a proseiytising society". In the same interview, Captain Pringle was asked "Do you not in some degree, in wishing to have Roman Catholics appointed Misters, contemplate the conversion of those persons through the connection with the Society?' He replied "Yes I do". Dr. McHale comments" It is high time that the peopie of Ireland should open thier eyes to the frauds of the iniquitous Societies by which some of them have been so long deluded". In reply to Farnham's claims of conversions, Dr. McHale says "Let names and places be specified and it will be found that many of the new converts ,are old Protestants and that the others are such as to make every decent Protestant blush". It is clear from this chapter that if the members of the Reformation Society were persistent in their work of evangelizition, Those of the Catholic Association in the Country were equally adamant in their resistance to attempts at conversions, Heart of Briefne DA990, C29,H42

These marriages are noted to have been at the Church at Ballymachugh. Baptisms appear to have been done at a chapel in Carrick and some perhaps by a priest riding circuit in the townlands. This film also contains in item 10 records of Drumlourman North & Loughduff.

April 13, 1839 "The Ejectment System; we regret to say that we have just been informed that eight families, amounting to forty or fifty human beings have just been thrown upon the world's wide common, in the parish of Ballymachue, Co. Cavan upon the lands of Bellgrove?. The cause is not assigned; but we have been informed that the greatest portion of the outcasts had been solvent tenants."

Dec. 2006 "Dear Mr. Beagan,

 I just came across your notes on Co. Cavan and found this one in particular.

April 13, 1839 "The Ejectment System; we regret to say that we have just been informed that eight families, amounting to forty or fifty human beings have just been thrown upon the world's wide common, in the parish of Ballymachue, Co. Cavan upon the lands of Bellgrove?. The cause is not assigned; but we have been informed that the greatest portion of the outcasts had been solvent tenants." Copied from the Register, printed in the Mackenzie's British, Irish and Canadian Gazette of New York

The family of my g-grandmother, Catherine O'Reilly, was one of the families evicted from Bellsgrove. She was 3-years-old at the time and evicted with her parents and six sisters, one only months old. A terrible story which I have been able to reconstruct from interviews with my O'Reilly relatives in Ireland.

 Your note was my first awareness of a news article on the eviction event. I would like to obtain a copy of the original newspaper sheet that contained the article. Is that possible?

 Thanks,
