Recently found pictures which belonged to my mother. One is of a Pub with the notation "Public House Bushmills 1880-85". The pictures show some people standing at the storefront, which is called Callaghan's.

Curious if the Pub still exists (which I seriously doubt), or if anyone has any information regarding the family. My mother's family was originally from Ireland and emegrated to Scotland. Family names are Callaghan and Given, supposedly from either Bushmills or Cavan area. Any info greatly appreciated.

I was very interested to read your posting; my brother now owns the pub in Bushmills that your ancestor owned, and I know he'd be interested in hearing from you. If you reply to me, I'll forward your letter to him. He bought the pub from Charlie Callaghan, who died shortly afterwards; about 3 years ago, I think

Don,
I may have the peice to your puzzle. I have two letters, 1879 and 87 from Sam Callaghan in Lemneagh, Antrim Ireland to his sister my Aunt in Redfield, Oswego County, New York.
He mentions owning a public house, and also a son John who had two public houses in Ballintoy(?)
Bushmills is mentioned as a place that others lived in, I am unclear where Sam's public house was, but it may be Bushmills itself.
What is your Callaghan ancestory?

just came across your query, we are O'Callaghans from Bailieborough/Shercock, Co. Cavan can give you a link to our tree if it helps you, I think it will be hard to make a match

Hi Don;
I see you have not had any replies on this for a while. I was just searching around as I may be relocating to Bushmills having just retired. My family on my fathers side are from Bushmills and Charlie Callaghan was a second cousin I believe. I knew him very well as we were taken to Bushmills every summer as a child by my father who used to drink in Bush House which was Charlie Callaghans bar.I continued to go on holiday there as an adult and would see Charlie quite regularly. As you are aware he died on 3rd Jan 1997. My father passed on, on the 30th June the same year.I still regularly visit with my family and Charlie is still well remembered by all the locals. It is a way over there that people do still remember others and can recount the stories of those now gone. Something lacking in the fast paced living of England where I was brought up and still live. Anyway I won't go on too much but if you have any questions about the area or Callaghan Family I will do my best to respond.
Kind Regards
Frank Callaghan

Hello,

My name is Hugh Reynolds and I live in London. I've just been talking to my father in Scotland and am about to update a family tree document I produced about in August 1997 which has a lot of info my father provided which he in turn had got from my grandmother Tillie Reynolds (nee Callaghan) A section begins...on Charlie Callaghan, My great grandfather...
Charlie Callaghan c.1870 - 1936

"Born at Bushmills, Co. Antrim, Ireland. He was educated in the town and became a schoolteacher there aged about 18. His family owned the local Public House (Pub) known as Callaghan’s Inn which can be seen still operating under this name to the present day in the Main St of Bushmills ( now the Bush Hotel). On the death of his father (name unknown), the Inn passed as a business to all the family. Charlie sold his share and emigrated to America, the passage being a long sea voyage in poor conditions from the port of Derry in Ireland to Boston. He took up residence in Philadelphia."

I'd be delighted in this is of help or if you have more info which i might find useful. The Charlie Callaghan above returned married to Annie Young of Gorran from Boston and landed in Scotland in Lanarkshire and as i say I'm a great grandson. He died 30 years before i was born but my grandmother Tillie his daughter died when i was three and i still remember her.
