Sheerin Family HistoryIt is said that there are five modern spellings of this old Irish name, these being Sherrin, Sheeran, Sheerin, Sheryn, and Sheran. Originally recorded as O'Sheeryne and O'Sirin, the name is one of the famous examples of an Anglo-Norman family (originally Prendergast) who 'gaelicised' themselves in the 15th century. However there are few absolute certainties about any surname, and for this one - none at all! As O'Sirin the name seems to have been prevalent in County Cork in the 1600's and yet by the 18th century the name is apparently extinct in that county.
