Hi, I didn't find any reference to landowners for 1870s in Co. Sligo, Ireland, with the surnames Mullaney or Kennedy; however, I found this entry on the list in the genealogy reference library book:

1. Cunningham M'Alpine, who gave his address as "In the Army," owned 742 acres in Co. Sligo valued at 373 pounds 5 shillings.

I plan to place the rest of the landowner list for Co. Sligo at the website this week.

Hi Jean,
Did you find any Mullaneys or Kennedys on your list. I think the Mullaneys were still renting their farm from a man named McAlpine.
Thanks

Hi, I will be posting more Co. Sligo landowner information soon. I don't have any listing for Durkin; however, my list only shows those individuals who owned one acre or more, and there were many others who owned less than one acre. You do have a wonderful resource available to you, and that is the LDS Family History Center. Their microfiched Irish records, (including Co. Sligo), containing alphabetized birth, christening and marriage information, as do their computerized records. I prefer the microfiched indexes as they easier for me to use and you can photocopy all the listings for your surname for a quarter right at the microfiche reader. The Mormon records will also group similarly-spelled surnames together with your Durkin, in case the name was "misspelled" or a variation.

Jean:
Does your book list tenants also, or just the land owners? From somewhere, I have it that an ancestor (gggfather) named Owen Conway rented several pieces from Richard Brinkley. Can you confirm, or what should I ask the LDS FHC for?
