Crabapple Loft is located in Shady, New York, on state highway Route 212. 

Nestled in the beautiful Catskill Mountains, Crabapple Loft is surrounded by

 hardwood trees, tall pines and hemlocks. It is a short walk to the tranquil shores of Cooper’s Lake.

My house and loft is 1/2 miles beyond the lake pump house, thru the woods

on RT. 212

Dunne Family Crest



This  was  the  battle  cry  for  the  DUNNE  clan  when  the  Clan  came down  out  of  the  Slieve  Bloom  Mountains to  fight  the  English  and  then  retreat  back  into  the  mountains  where  they  would  disappear  until another advantage came to  beat the Brits soundly.

The DUNNES & the O’NEILLS were allies years ago in the fight against the Brits. The O’NEILL’S married into the DUNNES. In 1999, I married a sweet little O’Neill. Best thing that I ever did.

Just a few miles north of Athy, Co. KIldare is a place called Clogorrow. Now just a spot on the map but this is where my ancestors John Dunne & Bridget Hayden Dunne lived.
