Ireland's history simply pulses here and we'd swear you can feel it. St. Patrick picked this site for his church in 445 AD; Brian Boru is buried here (or mostly, anyway); windows and stones commemorate many other people here. The caretaker is very knowledgeable and...More
This cathedral we believe was the church home of my paternal grandmother whom I never knew (passed before I was born), but whose Orange heritage was legendary in the family. The edifice is impressive and the RC cathedral of the same name is visible across...More
Having attended Charles Wood Gala concert this building shows what a versatile venue it is. Beautiful architecture, surroundings and a fabulous and stunning organ which accompanied the choir and singers. Well worth a visit when in the area.

The census of all Ireland is online for 1901 and 1911. There may be a partial earlier one... 1851? I'd include links, but this stupid web site blocks all links, web addresses, or even reworded references to web sites even when they're the only good way to answer someone's question. Vogan is a name I have not heard, ever. You might find someone in the census. Good luck.
