Sisters travel to remember their Fermanagh ancestors
Monday, 14th August 2006

Mary, Ann and Kathleen Maguire paid a visit to the family grave in Ederney last week to unveil a memorial to their grandparents. Their father Frank was one of four young children of Johnny and Mary Maguire who, three years after the death of their father in 1893, were evicted from their farm in Monavreece when Frank was just eight years old. The family moved to a house in Crillen near Kesh and from there Frank emigrated to Scotland. His three daughters, who travelled from Scotland, Dublin and Boston, were led into the graveyard by a lone piper.
