MAHON Family History

McMahon (or MacMahon) means ?son of a bear? and came from two distinct septs. One from the royal O?Briens and was from Corcabaskin in county Clare. The other was from Louth and Monaghan known as Lords of Oriel. Of the numerous MacMahons who emigrated to Australia one was Prime Minister from 1971-2.

My great grandfather, Timothy Francis Mahon, came from Woodford/Derrygoolin, in Galway. There is supposedly some family that did not leave in the early 1900's. His parents were James Edward Mahon 1819-1874 and Julia Hogan 1832-1904. I would love to connect with the Irish portion of my family.
