SOURCE: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~fianna/county/louth/loutchu.html Another convergence of name & place is that Walshestown House was built for Nicholas Markey, a good friend and election agent of Daniel O'Connell. http://www.buildingsofireland.ie/niah/search.jsp?type=record&county=LH®no=13901916 Also of interest, “In 1842 New Year's-day was celebrated by a crowded Repeal meeting at Dundalk. It was supposed not less than from sixty to seventy thousand persons attended. The crowds flocked in from the neighbouring Counties of Armagh, Down, and Meath. O'Connell, at this time Lord Mayor of Dublin, was accompanied to the meeting by Messrs. Boylan, Markey, Caraher, and other Repealers, and the chair was taken by Berkely B. Stafford, Esq. O'Connell made a most powerful speech, and, at the banquet which followed, nearly 600 persons sat down. To the toast of " The People — the True Source of Legitimate Power, " the Rev. Mr. Marmion ably responded.” SOURCE: http://www.marmionfamilytree.com/CountyLouthIreland.html Also, Nicholas MARKEY, Esq. of Walshestown was in attendance at a meeting October 25th & November 1, 1837 to encourage people to register their Freeholds.
