Prior to 1904 all the curates in the parish lodged in Claudy. The first curate to lodge in Craigbane was Fr William Cassidy who stayed in the house where Mickey John Donaghy lived. The next curate was Fr John Cassidy who had lodgings in what is now ‘Deeny's Shop’ in Ballyrory. At that time it was a Public House. He was only in the parish about 3 months when he died and he is buried in his native Granaghan. Next came Fr Elliot who lodged at Gormley’s Shop in Carnanbane and then came Fr Michael Mullan who was in lodgings at Lynch’s of Lear until the parochial house was built.
