My Egan connection is with Tom Egan, who married my great aunt Mary Coughlin (also sp. Coghlan. She was born in 1858, but I don't have a DOB for Tom. Mary was raised in a townland about six miles outside Limerick. When she and Tom married, they moved to the city.
As for my Shaughnessy connection, Pat and Anne Shaughnessy were godparents to my great uncle Thomas Coughlin, and John and Mary Shaughnessy were godparents to my great uncle Michael Coughlin.
