    Dean (also Deane) Dublin 1901, its actually an English name.Arrived here in 1856 British Crown Forces were based in Birr County Offaly in the midlands of Ireland.

    Now Gallagher (also Gallaher) A very common name all over Ireland, the O'Gallaghers were originally in Irish Gaelic O'Gallchobhair meaning ''foreign helper''. He was a descendant of Conall Gulban (who later gave his name as Tir connell) son of a Irish fifteen century King.
    The Gallaghers were also noted ecclesiastics, providing many bishops in Ireland.

    Hello CB, I am new to the site and live in the republic of ireland. The names I am interested in knowing more about are Manning and Mulvihil. Manning is spelt 'Ni Mhainin'or 'O' Mhainin' in gaelic, depending on your gender.

    I'd love to know more about the surname Rooke - which I'm told derives from O'Rourke.

    My grandmother was a Toole, derived from O'Toole. A distant cousin researched the family history, finding the town of origin and such. I got to glance through it, but she won't share with anyone, as she is afraid they will publish it and take the credit. (That was ten years ago. She's still sitting on it.)

    My grandfather was a Plair, which we think may be French? We can't go back beyond him.

    My father's family is Stone-Crawford-Dowling.
