  • Lots of McAuliffes from North Cork - specifically Newmarket, Scarteen, Meenishall, Gooseberry Hill.  My Mother was McAuliffe from Meenishall.  My husband's Grandmother was McAuliffe from Gooseberry Hill - you would have to provide more information on the family.  There have been McAuliffe Clan Gatherings in Newmarket, County Cork in the past.
