Hello! I'm interested the Tierney family. The earliest I know are Matthew Tierney and Anne Condron, who had seven children for whom I have found baptism records at Canice's (Finglas and St. Margaret's) in the mid 1800's. They had lived near Dunsoghly Castle. Family continued to live in Dublin, but son William emigrated to the US in 1871 and son Joseph was believed (by Wm's descendants) to have emigrated to Australia about the same time. Joseph returned to Ireland and died in 1909.
I am struggling to puzzle out several lines and if I knew more of Matthew or Anne's parentage it could help me. I'm also interested in knowing if there's a way to find out whether these two sons were sent away or chose to go.
