Mike,
Meet yet another Mike Kerins. From what I have seen, the name Kerins is thought to be derived from the original name O'Cieran, which means of Cieran, with Cieran being a a given name for a male and the "O" being possessive. My family came from County Clare. There seems to be Kerins from all over Ireland, and are here in the U.S. in New York, Rhode Island, Illinois, Maryland, Ohio and California to name the plaes that I've seen them.
Mike
