MacDermot of Moylurg by Dermot Mac Dermot
To many McDermotts around the world whose ancestors may have left these shores one hundred and fifty years ago the name Coolavin (pronounced Cool-a-vin) still maintains a certain degree of significance with which however it remains difficult nowadays to identify. This is a small attempt to rectify this problem and to bring you closer to the place which is still today an essential and living focal point for McDermotts. In order to explain about Coolavin, which has been the family home of The MacDermot for one hundred years, it is necessary to give a small amount of historical background. For this, I happily and proudly acknowledge the work of my late Grandfather Dermot, The MacDermot, Prince of Coolavin. The fruits of which work were born in July 1996 during our last MacDermot Clan Gathering with the publication of his exhaustive history of our name and family in "MacDermot of Moylurg, The Story of a Connacht Family"
