Fitcher Family History

This interesting surname has a number of origins. Firstly, it may be an occupational name for a fisherman, deriving from the Middle English "fisher", a development of the Olde English pre 7th Century "fiscere", a derivative of "fiscian" meaning "to catch fish". Secondly, it may be a topographical name for someone who lived near a fish weir on a river, deriving from the Middle English "fisch", Olde English "fisc" meaning "fish" plus the Middle English "gere" a development of the Old Norse "gervi" "weir, apparatus". inally, it may be an Ashkenazic occupational name for a fisherman from the Yiddish "fisher". The surname dates back to the mid 13th Century (see below)...

I am looking for any Fishers in Ireland who might be related to Michael Fisher who came from Ireland to the US in the mid 1800 hundreds. Michael came to Ohio and married Ellen Durkin?? I will be in Ireland in June and would like to do some investigation.
