Martin Callinan/Callahan - Galway

Classification: Query
Surnames: Callinan, Callahan, Hennessy, Hansberry
I am trying to find my grandfather’s townland in Galway. His name was Martin Callinan and he was born in 1864. When he came to the United States he changed his name to Callahan. His father was Patrick and his mother was Bridget Hansberry. He immigrated to the United States in the early 1880’s and married Mary Hennessy from Gorteenboy, Galway in Philadelphia in 1897. His cousin, also Martin Callinan, was married to Winifred Hennessy, Mary’s sister.

Any help would be appreciated.
