Sheehan Genealogy & History

Sheehan is an Irish surname, an anglicization of the Gaelic O'Siodhachain. The latter is a diminutive of Siodhach, which means peaceful, and of Siodach, meaning gentle or courteous. The clan was originally situated in County Clare but moved south to Cork, Kerry, and Limerick. Sheehan family history entered the books with John Sheehan of County Cork, noted in a census of Ireland in 1659. Sheehan genealogy boasts several renowned persons, such as anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, Marine Corps General John Sheehan, and Pulitzer-winning couple Susan and Neil Sheehan, who won separate awards for two completely unrelated works.
