County Tipperary Surnames and Places

Over the last 12 months we travelled to various parts of County Tipperary (it's not a long, long way from Cork) to take some of the following photos and link to some of the Irish surnames on our list. And I guess we will return many times and add to this post with more photos and new information on the lovely County Tipperary.

County Tipperary Surnames and Places

When someone signs up for our weekly Letter from Ireland, we ask them for the Irish surnames in their family and the counties in Ireland their ancestor came from originally.

As a result, we now have about 25,000 entries on our list. The following names are ones we received from readers whose ancestors came from County Tipperary originally. As you look through the names, you will see old Irish Gaelic names, Norman names and later English and Scottish names that settled in this part of the country. You may also notice that some of these surnames are from other counties originally.
