Scotstown Facts

Hugh Rooney in the census was actaully the landlord of a pub in Scotstown. I have been in contact with a grandson of Hugh's who told me Hugh started off in the Coopering trade, went over to America on several occassions, made money and returned to Monaghan and bought property each time he returned.

An original copy of the census record can be viewed here

Also in Scotstown in the 1911 census were two of Hughs sisters. Catherine Carbin(Rooney), is listed as a Publican, she is living at the time of the census with her daughter Mamie Carbin and her sister Annie Rooney. See here

Hughs grandson was also able to tell me that Hugh purchased a shoe shop in Roslea, this was later run by the above mentioned Mamie.

 

 

The pub at 'Scotstown Green ' that Hugh was the landlord of, also the adjoining farmhouse at rear.

This is the wedding Certificate of Hugh & Margaret Connolly.

 

 

After looking through the census records and looking through my research notes, I was able to work out that this Hugh was the son of John Rooney and Rose Lynch of Derrynawilt East.

Interestingly, the 1901 census for Derrynawilt has three of Hugh's siblings living on the farm and staying with them is their nephew John Carbin, this John would be the son of Catherine Carbin(Rooney).
