Surnames: Heffernan O'Connor
Looking for Heffernan/Connors/O'Connors from Tipperary and Templeglantine, Newcastle, Limerick, Ireland. My Great Grandfather was Patrick Heffernan who originally came from Tipperary. He relocated to Templeglantine, Newcastle, Limerick. He married a Joan Connor/O'Connor. My Grandfather William Heffernan was born in Templeglantine, Newcastle, Limerick. His baptismal states Joan Connor as mother, all the relatives say name was Johanna O'Connor. Patrick and Joan (Johanna) had about 11 or 12 children. My Grandfather William immigrated to the United States in 1920s. Married Bridie Cotter of Faranfore, Killarney, Kerry, Ireland.

Try Kerry Parish Church records on the website

No dates given but any records from 1864 are civil records
and most can be found on

If they were in Kerry in 1853 the head of household might
appear in Griffith Valuations:

Thanks again Annette. I go through those every so often but since I am unsure of all the names I never really know if they are related.

I will keep plugging through living relatives and try to get more info that may be helpful.

I don't know if Kerry will joint but
keep the name anyway and check back occasionally. I think they are down to only 4 counties that don't belong.

Hi Mairead,

I have heard you about through Cousin Joan. We have recently been a spot of troubles with internet connections through our service so late checking in on email. Joan has given me some info, at least what she could remember. Still missing some names and dates though. We too have been busy this Christmas season. I and hubby Jim are retired, but I volunteer in a number of places locally.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Your cousin Pat
