Does anyone have access to any of the parish records or Memorial inscriptions for the Catholic church at Carrickmacross? I am looking for anything on the Fidgeon family.

Hi, Just back from a trip to Carrickmacross this afternoon. Wanted to say that this old Church & Cemetery was locked up & unaccessible to my great disappointment. Spoke to a local who said it is sometimes open but he didn't know the pattern of times. Looks like inscriptions may be available from Clogher Historical Society "The Inscriptions of Magheross Cemetery" by Padraig O'Mearain 1963 and will have to go that route myself shortly.

St. Joseph's mentioned in a previous reply to you is a different cemetery that we also visited this morning, it is a newer one on Dromand? Road, Carrickmacross.
Best wishes, Ellen

Thank you for your comments. It has been helpful to me. I am researching my mother's family FINLAY (Ethel Christina). All I really know is that she was catholic and born in Carrickmacross around 1912.

The first Fidgeon in Ireland was Thomas Fidgeon, born in England in 1795. He lived at 12 Evelyn street Carrickmacross and was a saddler. He died in 1871. he is featured in Griffiths Valuation.

Hi Fionnuala

I was interested to see your post.

My husband is descended from Mary Josephine Fidgeon b. 1878 father Edward Fidgeon. She married Alexander (Sandy) McLaughlan from Carromoney, Armagh. They were in Glasgow on 1909 when they married. Mary's two sisters - Annie and Maggie were in Glasgow around the same time. Maggie went to USA and married a Joseph Flynn. Annie stayed in Glasgow and married ? Kingon.

Do you know anything about the McLaughlan family?

There are a few Fidgeons posting on Ancestry - have you been in touch with any of them. One part of the family are in Australia - this is where we are now. Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Linda McLaughlan.
