This morning we did a bit more Genealogically related exploring. First we checked out the Church of Ireland in The town of Cavan. I thought that was where my Great Great Grandparents we’re married. Then we visited the Cavan Genealogical Center. I had previously corresponded with them. We had a really interesting discussion with Brendon about Irish History and emigration. Among other things we learned that my Great Great Grandparents we’re married in St Peter’s Church, Bawnboy not in Cavan.
From Cavan we drove into Northern Ireland to the town of Magheralin. We stopped on the way to stretch our legs and walk around Palace Demesne in Armagh.
Tonight we are staying at a lovely Country House, Newforge House. We went for a walk around the gardens and neighborhood after we got here.
The owner of the Newforge House also cooks a gourmet dinner. We started with a fig and cheese tart then had Irish steak over freshly harvested vegetables and ended with a plum pudding with home made ice cream. And the figs were from the garden! After dinner we sat in the parlor by the fire and talked to other guests. One couple was from Armagh and a group of four women were from Nova Scotia.
