Hourigan Family History

This interesting name is of Irish origin and is, and always has been, an almost exclusively Munster surname. In 1890, of the sixy six birth registrations, forty were in County Cork and twenty-one in County Kerry. There are four Ballyhorgans in Kerry, all in the barony of Clanmaurice, and the 1901 census records one hundred and two families of this name in that county. Horgan is the Anglicization of "O' hArgain", and is said to have been originally "O' HAnradhain", which is the name os a notable family of Ross, County Cork. Synonyms of Horgan used in Munster are Hourihane (Cork), Hourigan (Limerick), Harriagn (Listowel), Horrigan (Kenmare and Mallow), and Organ (Cashel)...
