Magee (c.1800 - ):
'Big Magee' was born in Clogher, County Tyrone. He was a neighbour of William Carleton's in the early 1800s. He was an inventor of clocks and watches, and Carleton described him as 'a most ingenious man'. He was diminutive in size, and for a period of almost thirty years he went around the world exhibiting himself. He retired to Maynooth.
