      DEATH OF MISS ELLEN DONELAN, KILVOLAN, CAHERLISTRANE.

      We deeply regret to announce the demise of the above-named young lady on
      Thursday, 3rd June, at the early age of 16 years. Deceased was ailing for only a
      brief period, and her premature taking oil has evoked the sympathy and sorrow
      of every one who enjoyed the pleasure of knowing her ; and out to her bereaved
      parents and relatives goes the sincere condolence of their many friends and
      neighbours. Miss Donelan was a universal favourite, and her death has left a
      void not easily to be filled.

      The internment took place at Donaghpatrick on Saturday, 5th June, the funeral
      cortege comprising a very large and representative number of the people of
      the district. Father Heaney, C.C., was ministering to deceased during her
      illness, officiated at the graveside, and the child mourners were : Thomas Donelan
      (father), Kate Donelan (mother), Michael, Thomas, Patrick (brothers), Mary
      (sister), - R.I.P.

      Ballagh, otherwise Ballagh-na-Brugha, is derived from Brugha, i.e. a palace
      obscured from the public view. Within the environs of its picturesque hills,
      studded with a beautiful growth of hawthorn, are two raths of very large
      dimensions traditionally said to have been the abode of a Tuatha de Danaan king.
      Ballagh West, which is in the vicinity of Dunnmore, is now the oldest family
      seat in that parish. It has been transmitted to the Lynch family through lineal
      descent for several centuries. It is a branch of the ancient Lynch patrimony
      of Tobarroe, Kilconly, and Orannagh, Mayo. The former is in possession of
      members of the Lynch family to the present day. Orannagh was sold by Michael
      Lynch, of Toberroe, over a century ago. The Lynches originally belonged to
      Merlin Park, Galway. That property was confiscated for their having fought for the
      Stuarts on the Catholic and Irish side in the Confederate army in the wars
      against the Puritans, 1641-'49. The Lynches were replaced in Merlin Park by a
      family of the name of Blake.
