My ggggrandfather Timothy Hehir (also Hehir/O'Hehir and O'Haire) arrived in Australia from County Clare in 1961 with his sister Anne, and brother Patrick. Three of the other brothers and sisters also left and went to the US settling in Lowell.

Their father was Patrick O'Hehir and mother Bridget O'Neill and they had a farm at Killow, County Clare on land owned by a Lord Inchiquin.

I would be most interested to hear if your family is connected with ours. Obviuously Patrick and Timothy are fairly common names in the Hehir family.

We have tracked the family down this far, but then have no further connection to the fanily that stayed on in Ireland.

Our strain of the family in Australia is now known as Haire.

Please let me know if this is any relation to you.
