Mabel R. Colhoun And Archaeology In Inishowen
Mabel R. Colhoun And The Inishowen Connection
Mabel’s ancestral home originated in the area of Knockglass, Malin, Inishowen a short distance from Ireland’s most northerly point at Malin Head pictured above. Her grandfather was a farmer from that region and her father later moved from Inishowen to Derry City where he set up a successful building company called the Colhoun Bros Ltd. Mabel herself was born at North Lodge Derry in 1905. With this in mind Mabel was born and raised in the city, but from an early age had spent many childhood summers in Inishowen with her family.
