My maiden name was Pat Connaughton. My father was Joseph Henry Connaughton who was born in County Longford, but moved to Liverpool as a child. His father was Joseph Connaughton, who was born in Ballymahon, Longford in 1872. His father was Michael Connaughton, born in Newtowncashel, County Longford in 1838. That's as far as I've got! Would be interested in hearing from anyone who has Connaughtons in County Longford. Pat Wilkinson
