County Offaly

Co. Offaly, or Uíbh Fhailí in Irish, is part of the midlands region of Ireland. The River Shannon makes up the western border of the county which is perfect for cruising and angling. We are home to Birr Castle and Moneygall, which is the ancestral home of President Obama. Our county town is Tullamore and we have a population of approximately 78,003. We look forward to helping you connect with your ancestors’ place of origin.
