The Cassley family on this page are related to my Rooneys, through marriage.

They came from the townland of Lennaght in Tydvanet Parish in County Monaghan.

My 3xGrandfather James Rooney,had a brother called Bernard.He married margaret Cassley in 1870 at Urbleshanny r.c. church in County Monaghan.

With the help of Anna Garvey, married to a descendant of these Cassleys, I have managed to collect the following information.

 

Above is a copy of Frank Cassleys death certificate from 1890. Death was registered by son James.
