Bridget was the oldest of the Mohan family of Clintybunnia, Scotstown, and her late husband was Charlie McElroy, formerly from Clarnagh, Tydavnet who passed away in 2006, aged 85. An industrious and community spirited neighbour, he, along with the late Jim Woods, was instrumental in setting up the popular dancing deck at Killylough, Tydavnet. After selling his farm at Clarna in 1955 to the Sherlock family, he went off to England where he laboured a number of years. On his return in the mid 70s, he and Bridget purchased the farm at Tyholland where they lived with their family. (Thanks to Patsy Brady for additional information)
