The Gooley families from Tipperary
Note: The names Gooley and Gurtnaskeha are often spelt in different ways in the
parish registers. To make matters worse, they are often mistranscribed and indexed
incorrectly too. I have used the original register spelling of the surname but the
current spelling of the place name below. Scans of original registers have been viewed.
