yes the Currie's and Curry's and Coffie's, Cathry,cathie, were mcphee clans kin folk. thats why so many were found in Atrim Irerland. and beyond! they first started going to Irerland for safe shelter around the LATE 1500's when the MACDONALD'S lost the LOARD OF THE ISLE'S you can find currie's still on Colonsay ISLE in the 1841 census go to www.colonsay.org.uk and click on the genealogy. then scroll all the way down to the bottom and click on the census. also if you go back to the home page. click on the CORNCRAKE news letter then scroll down until you find a red box with the word search in it. click that! TYPE IN THE WORDS [DEMISE OF THE MACDUFFIE'S] AND THERE IS THE HISTORY WHY SO MANY WENT TO ATRIM AND ISLAY. issue 27 of the corncrake has an artical about a VIKING SHIP FOUND in a dune on Colonsay with a king burried with his woman and a horse,and some coin's dated 832AD TO 850AD that's the time of the first king of scotland KING KENNETH MACALPINE first king of the pick's and the scott's. who knows? the macphee's are said to be of decent of this man. the crest is pro rege it means for the king [THAT KING] the name is macdubhsithe it means son of the dake mystical one. after that the name is renderd macduffie and around 1500 and on you find duffie guffie haffie cathie, currie, and so on./ visit the maps&pictures on the Island and see a great big celtic cross and the rest of the two little Island's thanks and PRO-REGE
