About Michael O'Donnell

Father Martin's letter says Michael was called "an poppanne" because of his disposition to enter into conversation whenever he met an acquaintance, was born about the year 1749 A.D. To a tailor, who inquired of him how he wished to have his suit of clothes made, he replied: (gaelic characters) ... "easy to put on, easy to divest, pretty, strong and well-made"

He married Mary (Maria) Cleary. Both are buried in Killeen graveyard - parish of Burrishoole, situated quite near the north shore of Clew Bay, west of Roigh and Carrigahowthy Castle - once a stronghold of the famous Grace O'Malley

The following inscription may still be read on the stone above their grave:

The Lord Have Mercy on the Soul of Michael O'Donnell

        Deceased March 7th, 1799, Aged 50 years

And His Wife Maria Cleary, Deceased July 27th, 1807

        Aged 47 Years
