Hello Marty, There's always something new to learn.I am descended from a Neenan who came to Asutralia. He was peter Neenan who came here in 1852. He was from Cork I believe.Parents were Denis and Mary.He had brothers Maurice and Patrick and sisters Johanna and Kathryn I believe. That is all I have of the Irish origins.There were a few other Neenans who came to Australia and if you are interested I could send you all the early names (not many for as you already know the name is uncommon). I have a few names of Neenans in Ireland from the time from the internet.I could send them to you or tell you where to see them if you haven't already.
