Hello any and all Murphy family descendants who are sure their family came from Cahir or surrounds. I would be very interested if any of you have had your DNA tested. I would like to see whether there is any common DNA matched between us.

I am a desendant of Margaret Ann Murphy born 1803 or 1802 to parents James Murphy Junior of Cahir (managed the Glengall Arms Hotel in the town square)  and Elizabeth Murphy of Cashel. Yes the same family name so they were probably distantly related. Margaret came to Australia in 1841 and had one child here named Jane Mary Walker. There are now many many descendants here.

My DNA results are listed on under my name Lyn Stewart, and my email contact on is lynstewart75.

I look forward to a message via irelandxo or via Ancestry. For now....have a Happy Christmas and my best wishes for your family history research in 2019. I am presently completing my book about Margaret Murphy's family in Tipperary and her life here in New South Wales. We will be having a family reunion here in August 2019.

Regards, Lyn Stewart
