The Memoirs of Thomas Cathcart Breakey. The annotated index that I have prepared to these Memoirs is over 100 pages long, so I have broken them into a dozen pieces. This Memoir was written during the latter part of the 1800s and the early 1900s when the author (1834-1914) was in his 60s and 70s at the time of writing it. His is a unique voice and his record includes mention and anecdotes concerning some 500 people living close to Co. Monaghan in the 19th Century.
