Maighréad Maoileoin - Margaret Malone

Malone Family Crest
Malone Family Crest

The subject is probably Margaret, daughter of John Malone of Cartrons. It was very likely that Margaret was known to Carolan for on the 9th March, 1792 she gave evidence in the Roscommon peerage case, from which it is clear that she was intimately acquainted with Kilronan and its neighborhood nearly half a century previously, and probably earlier.
