HALLIGAN Family History

Recorded in many and varied spellings including: O'Halligan, Halligan, O'Hollegan, Holligan, Holgan, and Olligan, this very interesting name is medieval and Irish. It derives from the original pre 10th century Gaelic O' hAileagain', meaning 'a descendant of Aileagan', the later being a personal name derived from 'aille', meaning beauty! The clan O'Halligan is an Oriel sept from counties Louth and Armagh, and it is claimed have been recorded there as early as the year 1042. In the ancient rolls and charters the surname is first recorded O' hAllagain, and later in the 17th century in Connacht as O' Hallagan and O' Hollegan as it is today...

    Looking to trace Halligan relatives, Ireland/worldwide. My GGFx4 was born in Dublin in 1814 and christened in At Mary's PRO Cathedral. His mother Rose Tiernan and father John Halligan were married there in 1812, Nicholas left Dublin around 1834 and settled in Rochdale, marrying Sarah Oldham, and this is where I lost contact with all of my Halligan family. Can you help.
