MCCLOSKEY  Dungiven  2000-12-31  Gary 
My name is Gary McCloskey and I am searching for my family and the their background in Ireland. To date I have come up with the following:

My Great Grandmother was Bridget McCloskey formerly O'Donghue was a Roman Catholic was born about the year 1877.

My Great Grandfather name is James McCloskey was a Roman Catholic, and a general laborer. He was born in Co. Londonderry about the year 1868.

James and Bridget were married in about the year 1905. They had three children according to census records, 2 as of the 1911 and 1 at a later census. They are: Arthur McCloskey, son, born Co. Derry on 8th September 1906 in Dungiven and registered in Limavady. James McCloskey, son, born in Scotland about the year 1908/09. Patrick Joseph McCloskey. He was born in Dungiven on 22 August 1913.

I am not sure if there is any more family members. I received this information from someone who was helping me on the internet. I am wondering if there was anything else to be found. I am very interested in finding family information on my Uncles James and Patrick. As well as family information on the O’Donohues and If my great grandfather had a family.
