There are many Donohue Families in the area but, from the information supplied by Abbey Heritage, it would appear that the below information from the headstone in Abbey cemetery is relevant.
The inscription on the Headstone is quite obliterated but reads as follows:
The below image is a photo of my Grandparents’ gravestone – Michael Thomas Donohoe and Bridget Donohoe (nee Collins).
Michael was born in Coolfin 1907 and died in 1972 (age 65)
Bridget was born in Brookville in 1915 and died in 1998 (aged 83)
They are buried in Mill Hill, London, where they re-located after getting married in the Old Church, Clonlee Duniry in 1942
The ceremony was witnessed by Laurence Collins and Margaret Madden.
If possible, it would be great to add this information to the Abbey Heritage website.
Any memories or contributions from any members of the Donohoe/Donohue clan would be most welcome and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org

Thomas was working in N East England in the early 1930’s where he met my nana, they had a daughter Ivy born in 1932. i have managed to trace some family through DNA to a cecilia Quinn who emegrated with her sister Julia to Boston USA. i believe the quinn’s were closely connected to the Fahy and Cunnane families. i would so love any info which may help me to find out more TIA
