[Longford] I am quoting several areas to lookup
[Grace] OK, let's have your response to the Furey query Jimmy
[Longford] The Surnames of Ireland (Maclysaght)
(O) Furey The Annals spell this name O Foirreith and O Furreidh. Woulfe gives O Fiodhabhra which is conjectural - its contraction O Fiura is, however, in current use. A branch of the O'Melaghlins who later migrated to Co. Galway. See MIF Map Westmeath.

[Longford] Mr. John Greene in his memoirs on the Legan Parish (1925) gives the following information;
[Grace] Wow, that's quite a lot of ground to cover
[Longford] Amongst the tombstones in Holy Cross Cemetery, Brooklyn, U.S.A. is a memorial which gives the following scant information;Margaret Furey, 7/8/1880, Legan, Co. Longford
[Longford] Thomas, Longford

[Grace] Jimmy, did you have to visit graveyards to get this?
[Longford] Yes, all the local graveyards
[Longford] The last of the query coming up
[Longford] Registry of Criminal Proceeding, Ballymahon Court, Summer 1842.
[Longford] A John Fury of Creevaghmore, Ballymahon, was charged with maliciously destroying four padlocks the property of Maurice Cunningham, Creevaghmore.
[Grace] good news for the Fury relatives!
[Longford] There is also a story relating to the assassination of a land-agent in Co. Longford, in which an individual named Furey is reputed to have been implicated. I think this type of information is a bit too sensitive to discuss over the Web.
[Longford] The information I have supplied is relating to South Co. Longford, there is every possibility that your ancestors were in fact from the northern region of the County, an area for which I do not have any information and for this reason I advise you to contact the Longford Roots Centre, where you can obtain the necessary information, e.g. Births, Marriages and Deaths.
[Longford] Thats it for the Fureys
