    Griffiths Valuation of Ireland, page 144. Derrylea Beg and Derrylea More of the Parish of Errigal Trough in the Union of Clogher in Monaghan County. Listings for Michael Moynagh and Thomas McKenna.

    Michael Moynagh renting land plot #6 of Derrylea Beg and the land is owned by Francis Kane. (Most likely Margaret's cousin as her brother Michael was a Reverend, not a Farmer.)
    Thomas McKenna renting land #6 a and b of Derrylea More, the land touches boarders with Michael's own and is owned by Joseph Kane.

    Note: It's possible that the 'Kane' landowners were somehow related to James O'Neill's wife Mary O'Kane. Thomas McKenna's son, Thomas McKenna married Bridget O'Neill, daughter of Mary O'Kane and James O'Neill.
