The sheehan family

The idea for this post is to gather history and stories surrounding the sheehan family and clan.  It’s origins lie in the south west of Ireland, primarily in the province of Munster, in counties such as Limerick and Cork, however, the sheehan name can be found in other counties like Kerry, Clare, and further afield. The spelling of Sheehan has variants such as Sheahan, which is not surprising considering it a translation from Irish Gaelic name of O’Siochain.
