Foran came from all over Ireland County Kerry, County of Limerick, Belfast,. And I have linked all of the Foran living in Australia & New Zealand. My name is George Stanley Foran, I have ancerstors that have served in every war since the Sudan By the way the original Name was O'Fourein with a dash above the e thus turning the name into O'Fourain now if you have any intelligench work out what that mean, Hooroo or now.
