I have just discovered that I too have Ryan Ancestry from the town of GOLDEN Tipperary which is located about half way between Tipperary city and Cashel City - according to Google maps. Your camera showed a signpost pointing the way to Golden!! Most of my Ryan Family emigrated from Tipperary to New Zealand, in 1876. One Ryan daughter marrried a Quinlan and they went to the USA.
Hello! My name is Dillon Ryan my family comes from Tipperary I personally never been! Because I live in the states my family came into the country around the civil war era but originally the name Ryan was o'ryan or o'mulrian it was one of those two they dropped the o to make it more "Americanized but my family came to escape oppression ! we could be family lol long distant cousins!
My wife is a Ryan who's Paternal Grandfather, "William Francis Ryan" married his wife-(my wife's Grandmother) in a church there. It's in the records. They moved to America, departing Ireland via Waterford, to Pennsylvania-(Easton area) and her father, born 1907, died 1994, was "James Arthur Ryan". My wife is 62. Her ancestors-(some) came from Tipperary. The photo this lady holds in the video looks like my wife's family.
the ryans are from county tipperary predominantly but there are some also in north cork but if you are a ryan you are 99 percent from tipperary and should be able to find your family tree from the church records here (births /deaths/marriages) as the church kept fantastic records going back to the 1500 era but you will need the name and possible area of the people who emigrated to america they need some information and are most willing to co-operate with anyone who is trying to find their irish connections i am a ryan myself from cashel county tipperary
