Seeking Synge -Can you help?

A list of the clergy and curates of Derralossary Church from 1630 – 1969 is now available in the ‘History’ section of the website. Some basic information is provided on Dr Samuel Synge, brother of the playwright John Millington Synge, who was rector from 1923-1951. Long-serving and well liked he was a doctor of medicine as well as a clergyman. He lived in the rectory in nearby Annamoe; now the home of film director John Boorman. We are anxious to gather more information on Dr Synge, including photographs, and to make them available via this website. Please call Mervyn Taylor on 086 8227998 if you have any information.
