Our family starts with:

Loghill, Co.Limerick

Sara Mangan said that Denis Mangan came from Loghill, Co.Limerick, before he married Nolan (in 1828).
She said Mangan was of Loughill House (normally thus spelt), Loghill, Co.Limerick.
Loughill House was later the home of Fitzgerald who married a Mangan in 1888.
Loughill House used to be called "Ouvane House".
However, no evidence of an older link to Mangan has been found.

Denis Mangan apparently came to Dunmoylan through marriage to Nolan (O'Brien widow) in 1828.
