Descendants of William O'Hara

Francis Xavier Lavin


Francis Xavier Lavin, born in Ardgallagher, Kilmore, Co. Roscommon in 1890, was one of the 12 children of Patrick Lavin and Jane O'Hara. He was a brother of Fr. Damian O'Hara (see previous photo).

In 1928 Francis married Agnes Callery of Coolmeen, Elphin, Co. Roscommon and they had four children. Francis died in 1935 aged only 44.

Francis's son Patrick has done extensive research into his family tree, resulting in the publication in 2008 of Ancestral Quest, Tracing my Ancestors in Ireland. This book contains a detailed family history not only of the Lavins and Callerys but also of the Flynns of Kilbride, Co. Roscommon and the O'Haras of Cootehall, Co. Roscommon.
