    Picture Note: 1864 map of Slieve Gullion and of surrounding townlands adjoining the Longfield Road. The five holdings, Nos 2 to 6, each show the tenant's name in 1864 followed by the year that a subsequent tenant took over - up to 1929.
    Picture Note: In land plot 2 John Hannaway left home in 1867 and married into Levelamore, inheriting its tenancy in 1886. Back in Slieve Gullion John later took over his parent's land (plot 2) in 1916, following the death of his brother Hughie. In plot 4 Michael McGee was from Denis (Dinny) Mcgee's household (No 5); Michael had married neigbour Catherine Farmer in 1865.
    Picture Note: These households were at 850 feet and acess down to the (Longfield) road was mostly through Aughadanove townland. Since most could not read at this time "Aughadanove" was invariably recorded as their home on births/marriages, rather than "Slieve Gullion".

  • Notes 
    • Maggie was one of the five Boyle sisters from Adanove:the townland adjoining Johnny Bennett's home in Ballykeel which also adjoins Levelamore-their future homestead. (Officially the Boyle house is in Slieve Gullion townland-just. It's in the first field accessed from the road via a lane going through Adanove townland. At the time the Boyle's, neigbours McGee & Hannaway were unaware of the exact townland borders and few of them could read).
      The 1911 census reports Maggie has been married for 19 years and had borne ten children - all children were surviving.
