Step 8) From Kilmihil to Craggaknock (re BUTLER and FITZPATRICK ancestors)

Mary Butler was born in Craggaknock, County Clare, in 1865 of parents John BUTLER and Mary FITZPATRICK. Mary was my great grandmother's (Margaret BUTLER) sister.

Craggaknock seems to be a townland rather than an actual town. It is located just outside of Creegh, not too far from Kilmihil. It's a beautiful area with some views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Here are a few pictures of the area around Craggaknock. I made a special effort to photograph any old houses in the area.

The only definite sign, apart from the GPS, that I was in Craggaknock was the sign for this B&B.

Perhaps the BUTLERS lived in one of these old houses long ago?
