Wondering if you had any ideas about this family for me?
I am now looking at Hanrahan,Tynan,Byrne and Dowling families from Urlingford Kilkenny. I think this is hard against the tipperary boarder?
I have a John Dowling b abt 1785 married Mary Byrne
Some of their children b St.John some castlecomer. Their Grand daughter Catherine "Doolan" b)abt 1842 married her childhood sweatheart Michael Hanrahan (b Island Urlingford) in Australia after both families immigrated.
Could these Dowling's be connected with Tipperary Dowlings?
Or any way of getting any further back?
