My mothers family is from Glenarm, Mark Street. My father's family has been in Larne since 1850 but must have come from Carrivemurphy, Cushendall.
Our McF's are different lines. Did you know that there is a McF castle in Co. Donegal.

It was a McFaul castle at one time

Ballyliffin is a delightful little resort with a fine long sandy beach at Pollan. At the nearby 36 hole golf course is a mount which houses an ancient midden and the western slopes of Crockaughrim boast some rock art which dates back to the Bronze Age. More accessible is the ruined Carrickbrackey Castle. It was a McFaul castle at one time but it is with the Dohertys who were deprived of it at the time of the Ulster Plantation in 1610.
