Surnames: Hanrahan, Handrahan, Hourihane, Horan, Horgan, Horrigan, Hourihan, Howard
People named Han(d)rahan are cordially invited to join the O'Hourihane DNA projects. This will be my only announcement on this board.

Hanrahan has been associated with Tipperary in Ireland. However, it is known that some Hanrahans migrated down to Cork and some could have been called Hourihane.

The project home is at:

I am looking for people of Irish descent named some variation of Horan, Horgan, Horrigan, Hanrahan, Hourihan, and even Howard to join the project. Due to a number of factors, there is a possibility that these surnames have historically been confused with each other.

The project is looking for Y-DNA test participants and also autosomal DNA test participants. The project contains a background; goals; a surname distribution map and other items of interest.

You mentioned that the various surnames related to the O'HOURIHANE project might have been confused with each other. Could you elaborate?

If you read the project background page on the project website it will elaborate in more detail. There is also a surname distribution map.
