DUNMOYLE CHAPEL GRAVEYARD


Dunmoyle Chapel, Roman Catholic, is located about 3-4 miles   northeast of Ballygawley in Errogle Cieran Parish. The chapel and cemetery are in use today.

This is the stone of George McCann, my great, great, granduncle, and his family. From the lettering on the stone, I assume is was erected in 1946. Who is Mary McCANN of Washington?

Anyone seeking or wishing to exchange information about this family may email me at hoopster@mcn.org
