My ancestor, Bridget Lawless (1822 - 1890) brought this platter from Ireland to America in the late 1840s.
Her husband, John Malowney was born in Menlough, County Galway.

where some of my GARRITY/GERAGHTY relatives lived:
Clan Mageraghty, from its origins to its demise. (excerpts from Dennis Garrity Mumby's work below. click on link above to see full text.)
All that remains of the clan's final occupancy is a small village called Baile Mhic Oireachtaigh located a few miles south of the town of Roscommon. It is a reminder of the clan's existence on the four townlands in O'Kelly's country that they occupied until they were finally dispossessed by the military forces of Cromwell. Ironically though, the town may be shown on your road-map as Castlecoote after the conquering English Peer, Sir Charles Coote. But the as you drive nearer to the village, you will still see road signs pointing the way to Baile Mhic Oireachtaigh, and underneath in English, Castlecoote, as is the custom in Eire.
