Facinating article my wife Bernadette ( formerly
Shannon ) was raised in Pubble and has often told me
that St Patrick turned at Pubble this article lends
creadence to that story.

I found your site very interesting. I homeschool
to my children, and they had a writing prompt to do
about headstones. So we went to visit a graveyard and
found a very unusual headstone. Dated early 1700s, we
couldn't make out the form of language. It was english,
but it didn't make sense. It had a big skull on it,
with bones shaped in a cross over the skull head.
Was this something evil?
Thank you for such a wonderful site on all of this.
I printed it and am using it for our studies on headstones.
I never knew there was so much to it. But we found how
much we really enjoy this.
Jim McCaffrey - July '06
I'm also a McCaffrey from the US with family in Tempo
and family buried in Pubble graveyard. I visited with
Johnny McKeagney and felt a strong feeling of gratitude
for his great collection of Irish artifacts that he
is kind enough to maintain and permit people like me
to view. It gave me a great sense of connection. This
web site is lovely, I'm so happy I found it, it's like
visiting Ireland from my office in seconds. Good to
hear Johnny's voice. Thanks again. God Bless.
Julie A Lynch - USA - Feb '06
My name is Julie Lynch, Granddaughter of Johnny and
May McNulty from Tempo. I was born in Tempo, (actually
Enniskillen) but have been living on Florida for the
past 23 years. I always remember going to Aunty Vera's
in Strabane when we were young, and visiting your house
Denis, My dad is Denis McNulty now residing in Dublin.
I had the privilege of visiting Johnny McKeagney a few
years back and had a wonderful time. I actually have
several items of china, that my mother tells me once
belonged to Father McCaffrey. I would love to hear more.
Denis Murray - Nov 05
Dear Mr. McKeagney---- My name is Denis Murray at the
moment living in Ballymena. My mother's name was Vera
McCaffery who came from Tempo. Her sister was May who
married Johnny McNulty who was a cattle dealer. May
had a shop in Main Street, Tempo. I have been in Tempo
a few times recently and visited the grave yard at what
used to be called "The Commons". My uncle
was Father Dinny McCaffery who died in 1947 and buried
in front of Tempo Chapel. I would be most grateful if
you could let me know where I could look up some family
history of my mother's family ie. McCaffery from Tempo.
Mary McCaffrey Puccinelli - USA -
I am a McCaffrey in the United States with family in
Tempo and family buried in Pubble graveyard. I visited
with Johnny McKeagney when I was "back home"
a few years ago to attend a wedding. I am happy to see
all of the research.
Keep up the good work! God Bless!
