In Reply to: Doolan's of Ireland by michelle talbot of 262

I'm afraid I don't have much in the way of history of the Doolans except o let you know of my immediate family. My name is Kieran Doolan, my father is Francis Kieran and his father was also Kieran. We all live or lived in Belfast but I believe that originally the Doolans are from Cork. There are only a few Doolan families presently in Northern Ireland although, to the best of my knowledge, myself and ny brother are the only male Doolans in our clan. There are also some relatives now living in Dublin but I have no contact with them any more. The name Kieran is Irish meaning little king and Doolan itself is irish for black rock.Kieran tends to he English spelling of Ciaran or Kieron
If I can help any further please feel free to e-mail.
P.S the reason there tends to be little written history of families in Ireland is that before the 19th centuary records were held by local parishes and unless you know where to look it is almost impossible to trace ancestory more than 100years. If you have any info about the Doolan family I would be interested to read it
Regards
Kieran
