Haren/Harhen from Letterkelly
« on: Friday 03 September 10 08:45 BST (UK) »
My great grandfather, Michael Harhen, emigrated from Ireland to Australia in 1880s. He came from Letterkelly and his parents were Thomas and Bridget O'Connell.  He definitely had one brother called James and most likely others.  Does anyone have any information about Letterkelly and the Harhens?

Hello and welcome to Rootschat.

My Haren's came from Tullaghaboy, Kilmaley Parish in Co. Clare.  I have come across many different spellings of the surname.

Don't know if you are aware of Liz Haren's site on rootsweb, this is where I saw posting of Harens of Letterkelly.
Crowley : Kilmaley Parish, Co. Clare / Cook County, Chicago, Illinois
Bradley: Iskaheen Parish, Co. Donegal, Ireland
McCallion:  Iskaheen Parish, Co. Donegal. Ireland
Margey/Margay:  Iskaheen Parish, Co. Donegal, Ireland
Donnellan / Donlan:  Carhunagry, Co. Clare
Sullivan: Clare / Cook County, Chicago, Illinois
James:  Derry/ Donegal / Wales.
Haren / Harhen:  Co. Clare, Ireland
Murphy: Kinturk, Kilmaley, Co. Clare.
Friel:  Aught, Ture. Iskaheen Parish, Co. Donegal.
Cassidy:  Limavady, Co. Derry.

If you go to that wonderful website - www.kilmihil.com - and click on History, then Genealogy,  you'll see plenty of Haren males and females, plus variations of the surname.

Wouldn't it be terrific if other Parishes followed this example and put their details on line. 

Take a bow Kilmihil folk.

Cheers
