Dear Ben,
I'm just reading your message re: Whelehans - many years after your first posting. I can verify that there is a townsland Mountrath/Montrath (spelled both ways even by the natives!) near Tyrrellspass, Co Westmeath. I knew of two Whelehans there who lived next door to each other. As far as I recall, they were cousins - Joe and Paddy(?). The ruins of the two houses are still there - only five miles or so beyond the graveyard of Tyrrellspass that you visited. It's a pity that you did not investigate further when you were so close. Could one of the houses have been the home of your Gr Grandfather? I could find out further info from the older people in that area if you wish to follow up. You can reach me on By the way, have you already checked out:
Joe (Joseph)the youngest mentioned in this link, died around 1970?
