John Hehir (my great-grandfather) was a son of John Hehir and Margaret Murphy). Travelled to Queensland Australia & settled at Drayton, Toowoomba. Worked on the Queensland Railways and married Mary Boland (from Co Clare).
John Hehir was born at Kilmihil, Co Clare. Believed to have had at least 2 brothers (Thomas and {Patrick) and 1 sister Bridget.

A Thomas Hehir was a witness at his wedding (could be his brother or a cousin).

Patrick Hehir is believed to have married and stayed in Co Clare possibly at Cooraclare??

John and Mary Boland were the parents of my grandmother Bridget Ida Hehir (one of 10 surviving children of which there are now many, many branches).
