Looking for leads for any records covering the eviction of the Finan Family from the area of Coolcarney, Mayo, in the Baroney of Gallen, an area also known as Bonnicolon & Attymass, to the counties of Roscommon and Sligo.  The Finans were of the O'Fionnain sept of the Ui Fiachrach Murighe/Moy Group.  I think that they were evicted to clear the land for purposes of the Cromwellian Settlement. I am of the Finans from outside of Loughglynn,Castlerea, Roscommon and am trying to overcome a brickwall beyond 1800 and hoping Mayo eviction records will be an assistance while expanding the family's history into the 17th Century. Thank You .

I don't know if you are familiar with the Irish Genealogical Society but they may be able to offer you some help on this one. For some idea of this groups activities go to

http://irishgenealogical.org/sites/default/files/memsepts/1995164.pdf

You will see that they are very fact based in their approach and are very likely to be aware of any records related to your researches.
