My grandfather, Daniel Aherne lived on a farm in Banteer and emigrated to Cardiff where he married my grandmother Annie Wilkinson in 1894.
Does anyone know anything of this Aherne family. I believe there was a Michael and my great grandfather was Eugene.

Perhaps this is your Daniel? You didn't give approx year of birth, so I may be off here. Note the father here is called Owen, which is equivalent to Eugene.
