This page is for entries which apply to the whole of Ireland, eg general information on Ireland , one name studies covering the whole of Ireland, and enquiries when you have no idea which part of Ireland your surnames came from.

Surnames in Ireland, like England, do tend to be strong in certain areas. First names are sometimes claimed to have regional patterns as well. It's worth checking Familysearch provided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for clues.

Richard Andrew, Ireland  Jan 2010 (168204)
I am looking for information regarding my Great-Grandfather Richard Andrew, he was born in Ireland around 1875, he moved to Glasgow and married Matilda Kilpatrick in 1900. They had 3 children. He died in 1934. His father was George Andrew and his mother was Margaret (Jane) Murdoch and I know he had a brother named Howard. If anyone knows anything that could help I would really appreciate it.
Walsh, Patrick & Mary  Apr 2008 (136265)
Seeking information about Patrick Walsh (b. abt 1825 in Ireland) and wife Mary (b. abt 1834 in Ireland, maiden name unknown). Had emigrated to USA by 1856 when first child was born. Six children born in Missouri, Richard (abt. 1856), Thomas (abt. 1860), Mary (abt. 1863), Cathern (as spelled on the census, abt. 1867), John (abt. 1879)and my great grandmother Agnes (14 Feb 1880, St. Louis, Missouri).

Clarkes, Merricks born in Ireland  Jan 2007 (101114)
I am looking for any information on a couple of individuals in my tree that were stated on the census as being born in Ireland, they are MOSES CLARKE born in 1813 and ANDREW MERRICK born in 1839. MOSES CLARKE married a lady called ELEANOR and came over to England and settled in Manchester, sometime after their son JOSEPH was born in 1847 and went on to have several more children which included my great great great grandfather, also called MOSES in 1860. Any information on MOSES CLARKE Snr and his family in Ireland would be greatly appreciated. I am also looking for information on ANDREW MERRICK born in 1839 in Ireland. I am assuming from what I already know about this person that he was born in Ireland and then married in England to a lady called MARY HEALEY who was born in Dukinfield in Cheshire, England, they lived in Manchester and had several children including my great great grandmother SARAH ANN MERRICK born around 1862. I am interested in the irish roots of these individuals, as I know nothing at all about their lives before they came to England, any information would be received with thanks. Regards Lisa
