HARTIGAN Family History

Recorded in several spellings including O'Hartigan, O'Hartagan, Hartegan, Hartigan, and Hartin, and being cognate with the surname O'Hart, this is a famous Irish surname. It originates from the pre 15th century Olde Gaelic surname O'hArtagain, which means the descendant of the son of Art, the latter being possibly a short form of Arthur. It is said that the tribe were Dalcassian, and originated from the region known as Thomond, which was made up of the modern counties of Clare, Limerick and Tipperary. According to the etymologies of Ireland by the late Professor Edward MacLysaght, the clan is best known in the late 20th century in County Limerick, but even there, it is no longer numerous...

Polly and Bridget Hartigan and their parents, Eliza and Michael from Freemount, Co. Cork. I believe Polly and Bridget to be my great aunts.

Can you please ask if your grandfather had any brothers or uncles that stayed in Limerick?

If you know about any Hartigans in Limerick who emigrated to Connecticut at the turn of the 20th century, contact me.

My grandfather's name was Thomas Hartigan (from Limerick) who emigrated at the end of the 19th century. He met and married Johanna Finnan at the beginning of the 20th century and they settled in Waterbury, connecticut where they raised 7 children. My mother, Mary Rose Hartigan married Rolland John Brady from Canada and moved there. I now live in Florida. I know quite a bit about most of my ancestors, but not Thomas Hartigan. I'd be interested to know more about the Hartigan family in Limerick.
