There is only one family of Hehirs in New Zealand that we know of. My g-g-grandfather name was John Hehir. He had two wifes and 21 children, one who was my great grandfather Patrick Hehir. Patrick arrived in New Zealand in 1876 along with a couple of men called Hurley O'Grady. They cleared a dairy farm in the Manawatu, where my family still farms. I have been to the old family farm at Maghera(near Ennis), but there must be a whole lot more relatives that settled in Australia or the U.S.
I would like to hear from anyone that might be connected.
