I have been researching my Irish ancestors since 2007 and have had success in finding both my paternal and maternal grandparents and families. My paternal side had been on Coney Island since the early 1800's through 1984, their name was Hugh and Michael Haran and families. My grandfather James Haran born circa 1857 on Coney Island immigrated to the USA in 1882. Many times during my research both Ahamlish and Grange appear with the Haran name(and variations) so I wonder if that area is where they originated from. The closeness of Sligo, Ahamlish and Grange, also Drumcliffe is such that it would be feasable for that to be the case.
Does anyone have any thoughts or knowledge on that from the above areas.
