Sheehans in Cork


“The name started to appear with some regularity in the records of Cork from the 14th century.  Kilcredan parish in the diocese of Cloyne was one place where it was to be found.  John Shyghan was a tailor in Youghal in 1617 and William Sheehan a town clerk there in 1688. Thadeus O’Sheaghan was the Church of Ireland vicar of Inchigeelagh in 1639; John Sheehan appeared in Petty’s Census of Ireland in 1659; and Captain William Sheehan of Cork was on King James’s army list in 1689.”
