: I am trying to establish how the Goggins name arrived in Co. Meath, where most of my ancestors originate. If in the course of your research you come across this name I would love to hear from you.
I'm in the process of thinking about doing a Family Tree, and while surfing came upon your message.
Although I was born in England my roots on my Fathers side of the Family is Irish. He was from County Galway from a village called Caheravoola
(hope the spelling is correct) in the parish of Corofin. the village is on the main Galway city to Tuam main road,if my memory is correct it is nearer to Tuam than Galway. Although I have not visited for over 25 years I know plenty of Goggins still live in that part of Ireland.
Hope this bit of information might help you in your project.If there are any questions you would like to ask please get in touch and i'll do my best to answer,who knows we might be related.
Regards Tony Goggins
