My great grandfather was William Coogan who was born in 1850 Isrorty (Uskerty) in Kilkenny, Ireland. He married Alice Brennan in Tullabrin, Kilkenny. Tullabrin is a farming area with Johnswell being the nearest village. William and Alice had six children between 1880 and 1896. The family then migrated to Australia. William's parents were James Coogan and Mary Byrne. I feel we must have some connection. What about you?
