Welcome to Lavey
We are working on this parish page and will add content here shortly. Feel free to post your message and we will respond as soon as possible. Remember to post as much information as you can with regard to the people you are researching. The more information you post, the more likely it is that one of our volunteers will be able to advise or assist you. Also include information concerning which sources you may have already used so others may further your search.
Please be patient - as our programme has only begun to roll out across the island of Ireland and volunteers in some areas may not yet be organised.
The ancient Parish of Lavey derives its name from the Irish-meaning elm tree. It is situated in East Cavan and was founded by St. Damhnat, Patroness of the Parish.
