September 2008, Muriel Tinnany Cudby and her husband Nick of Helensburgh, Scotland visited previously unknown Tinneny cousins in Counties Cavan and Monaghan, Ireland.  Muriel is the great granddaughter of Robert Tinneny who was raised in Belturbet and spent his working life as a carpenter and boat builder on Castle Sanderson in Belturbet.   

Muriel’s grandfather Patrick, who immigrated to Helensburgh where he  married and raised his family, changed the spelling of his name to Tinnany while his siblings and parents used the traditional Tinneny spelling. During their trip, Muriel and Nick visited Hubert Tinneny and his family, and his sisters Maisie and Josie and their families.  They also took a sentimental journey to Goladuff where they explored the ruins of the “Tinneny Homeplace.”
