History

James Coghlan was born in 1827 in County Wexford, Ireland.[1] He first arrived in Ballarat in 1853[2], where he initially worked digging for gold. In 1856 he was employed by Murphy's Wharf Brewery in Melbourne where he acquired his skills in brewing that would prove to be the foundation of his trade.[3] He returned to Ballarat in 1857 and established the Phoenix Brewery Brewery at Ballarat, later Magill and Coglan.[4]

The Miners Rest property was known as Arranmore during the time it was lived in by the Coghlan family. Árainn Mhór (English name: Arranmore) is the largest inhabited island of County Donegal and lies off the west coast of County Donegal, Republic of Ireland.[5]
