THE CLAN IN THE USA
MURNANES IN IRELAND
Bansha House: The Marnane Guest House in Tipperary
(This is the Original Welcome, Slightly Edited)
Welcome to Clan Murnane. Or Marnane. Or Murnen. Or Murnain... Or whatever. This website is dedicated to the tens of thousands -- perhaps hundreds of thousands -- descendants, researchers and friends of the Clan.
We've been here for more than nine years (this site, not the Clan). "Opening day" was 27 March, 1997. Since then, we've had more than 340,000 visitors. Our Bulletin Board has more than 400 entries, most of them asking for information or providing information. The Bulletin Board has helped dozens of families make connections. Each of the Bulletin Board entries, going back to March, 1997, is still accessible. You can reach it, and many other features, using the links to the left.
The links to Family Trees will take you to more than 40,000 Murnane names in all parts of the world. The Australia and New Zealand entries alone are enough to keep anyone busy for months searching for relatives! Paul Murnane's research is reason enough to have a website such as this; it is well worth visiting that section of the site.
Some of the information on this site is the result of the early research I did on my own family, and which led to the publication of "It's Not Such a Long Way To Tipperary" in 1991. Any delusions I had that my branch of the Murnane (or Marnane) Clan was the center of the Grand Clan were quickly dispelled when we began hearing from Murnanes all over the world.
So please enjoy this site; comment about it; and contribute to it. Best wishes and good hunting! And a note to long-time visitors: we are going through some re-design; your comments would be appreciated.
