HI-
I am very interested in the Horrigans, having a Horrigan GGrandmother!! I have a Jeremiah Horrigan marrying Johanna Murphy in roughly 1840???
My Horrigans were from Killorglin...I know nothing about Jeremiah's ancestors but wish I did!!!

I have no information on the Horrigans. Big brick wall. My Horrigans are in Boston 1915-1920. I have a Edward J. marrying Mary B.. In Sept 1919 Mary gave birth to Muriel Francis in Cambridge, who was then given up for adoption to the Heaps of Dorchester, MA.

HI-
My relatives called "Horrigan", "Horgan" and also "Harrigan" are from Killorglin, County Kerry.
The folks who do the Irish county websites have info about some 1911 census that might be interesting for you. All of my relatives left before that. I think this is their URL:
irl-kerry@rootsweb.com
There is also irl-cork, and probably other Irish counties...but ask for help from these folks, they are active in geneology and want to assist you!!!
All the best,
Mary Ellen

Mary Ellen: Thank you. I will check with the URL you gave. From what my father had told me, he thought we heralded from County Cork. But he was never able to complete his quest and connect the dots. I hope to follow on in his foot steps. Thanks again.

Hi-
My Whelton ancestors are from county Cork and I never could find them in Ireland..I did find my McCarthy ancestors from County Kerry which surprised me...McCarthy being such a common name.
At any rate, here is the URL for my information about my Horrigan ancestors:

I haven't updated it for a while, but then I haven't been working on my ancestors for a while!!
All the best,

Hi Mary Ellen,

I saw your thread regarding Horrigan's of Killorglin. My Great grand mother was Margaret McGillicuddy. She came to America around 1885 from Killorglin, Ireland. Her mothers maiden name was Ellen Horrigan. Her fathers name was Michael McGillicuddy. Sound familiar?

This sounds very interesting!! Ellen is a name that is prominent in my family.... I don't know about any Horrigan kin in Killorglin, and in fact, the last time I looked into it, it was a dead end in terms of finding ANY Horrigans, Horgans or Harrigans in Killorglin....but more information is always becoming available!
Have you used the IGI provided by our Mormon friends? I found my McCarthys there.

I have been unable to find anything with the IGI (FamilySearch.org). My Ellen Horrigan would have been born around 1830, married around 1850 (to Michael McGillicuddy). Someday I'd like to travel to Killorglin to look up their records at Saint James Catholic Church.

Hi-
I was send by some very nice person whose name I have forgotten now, a book called "History of Killorglin" by Kiernan Foley....there is a ceremony where a goat is paraded through the town....my father's sister knew the family history and, alas, didn't write it down, but did write about this goat parade.
I feel sure that your Ellen and my Jeremiah and Patrick Horrigans are related....too bad that the data is lost that would prove the connection!!!
