All you tierneys out there are you aware that the Tierney's are meeting in a Clan gathering in Ballintubber Co. Mayo Ireland on July 27th to July 29th this year. Ballintubber is the original seat of the Tierney Family when they were sub kings of Ireland. The name of TIERNEY is one of two names which were the FIRST names recorded in Europe. It is a celtic name meaning Nobleman or king. Have you seen their coat of arms?
If you want to know more about your origins contact me and I can take your enquiries to Ireland when I meet the clan chief. My website is the Tierneys of London in My Family .com Have a look there may be a connection.
