At the recent school examinations of the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal
College of Music, Miss Garvey gained distinction. She is a member of the
community "La Sainte Union des Sacre Coeurs." Athlone, Westmeath, and a daughter

Garvey, the popular novelist, and niece of Colonel Michael Doheny, who was so

Quinultagh, near Dunmore, is derived from Ultach - an Ulsterman. Along the
Western and Southern slopes of Sliabh Dart there are many thickly-populated
villages. The advent of this population to the locality synchronises with the
Plantation of Ulster hundreds of years ago, and these people, who are still
decidedly clannish, are the descendants of the expropriated Catholic tenantry of
parts of Ulster, who, dispossessed of their farms and homesteads in the Black
North, took up their residence on this heather-growing range, which reminded
them of their native homes amid the dark mountains of Tyrone and Donegal. They
still cherish many traditions of the olden times, when their forefathers had
to carry long dirks to defend themselves at fairs and markets, and of the
faction fights when, standing together like one man, they always gained the day.
We find, says a reverend and learned correspondent, reference is made to

burned the town and raised the walls to the ground. In A.D. 1177 Milo de
Cogan occupied Dunmore with 40 men at arms, 200 horse soldiers, and 300 archers.
King Rory O'Connor after a successful attack put this army to fight ; and the
English did not encamp until they reached the other side of the Shannon at
Lanesboro. In A.D. 1558, Captain Mordaunt led an English army from Lanesboro
through Roscommon. It is recorded that the English soldiers raised a mutiny
against the captain in the town, and to be marched them back again.
