craig my Tierney relatives also came to Australia from County Cavan and I have researching our family tree for some time. The name Luke doesn't ring a bell. There were several different families of the same surname who lived in the Relaghan, Derry, Shercock area just outside Baillieborough. Do you have any other information e.g. Luke's parents names or any idea where he came from in Cavan? Am interested in comparing any infowe may both have. Unfortunately it's sometimes difficult to piece the story together as records are rare at times. Regards Terry (nee tierney)...Mrs
My grandfather Patrick Thomas Tierney (born 1885) and his three siblings emigrated to Nth Qld.in 1911 and 1914. His father was Thomas Patrick married to MaryAnne McEnteer(also McIntyre now)... and changed to Freeman in 1850's. Thomas P Tierney married 1884. He had sisters Rose, Margaret Maguire, MaryAnne who married his wife's brother Peter McEnteer, and brother John. Thomas P Tierney was son of Patrick T Tierney married to Helen O'Neil I believe. Eldest sons were named after the grandfather in this family ....until the Australian generations!
