Descendants of Patrick Gordon

Gordons of Castlerea?


This photo, found by a descendant of Michael Gordon and Katie Cunnane (see earlier photo), has the word “Castlerea” written on the back, but the identity of the house and individuals pictured is uncertain. It has been suggested by a visitor to this website, a native of Aughalustia, Co. Roscommon, that the photo may have been taken at Aughalustia Lodge (still standing today), home of Cormac Gordon (c.1848-1924),  and that the people pictured may include Cormac and three of his children, Joe, Tom and Dora. Augalustia, however, is located in Ballaghaderreen rather than Castlerea, although Castlerea is not far. If anyone can confirm the identity of the house or the people pictured I would be very grateful if you would get in touch. Please email
