"I have third cousins there: Ginty, McGinty and McGinnity. Also Reilly/O'Reilly, but I've never met any of them."
GARY :

To keep tradition going, everyone gets extremely drunk and the bride's and groom's families have a storming row and begin wrecking the reception room and generally kicking the sh!t out of each other. The police get called in to break up the fight. The following week, all members of both families appear in court. The fight continues in the courtroom until the judge finally brings calm with the use of his gavel, shouting, 'Silence in court!' The courtroom goes silent and Paddy, the best man, stands up and says, 'Judge, I was the best man at the wedding and I think I should explain what happened.' The judge agrees and asks Paddy to take the stand. Paddy begins his explanation by telling the court that it is traditional in a Cavan wedding that the best man gets the first dance with the bride. The judge says, 'OK.' 'Well,' said Paddy, 'after I had finished the first dance, the music kept going, so I continued dancing to the second song, and after that the music kept going and I was dancing to the third song, when all of a sudden the groom leapt over the table, ran towards us and gave the bride an unmerciful kick right between her legs.' Shocked, the judge instantly responded, 'God, that must have hurt!' 'Hurt?' Paddy replies. 'He broke three of my fingers!

cmj :

i am looking for a chat room with people from county cavan in it or who have connections with county cavan in ireland

Ted Pack :
"There may be one, but . . . what if your fourth cousin, who has your GGGF's family Bible and the letters he wrote to GGGM when they were courting, tied in a bundle with a faded pink ribbon, gets out of the room 23 minutes before you get into it? There are real genealogy boards, with Q and A, just like this one, except they are devoted to specific surnames and counties and they don't get as many teens who think their family has a family crest. They take longer for a response, too. GenForum and Ancestry both have them. You have to register, but they are free. I can send you links if you are interested. You may not be; if you are 18 and looking to chat with someone your age but the opposite sex, you may not want anything to do with genealogy. Most of us are old. We're good looking, for geezers, and plenty smart, but old and cranky."
