I believe my mother's family left Longford in the 1840s for America. Not sure if this is true, are there Harkins in Longford today?

  • Harkin:

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Harkin/Harkins in the mid-19th century was a rare surname for Co. Longford. The surname was mostly found in Co. Donegal.

    I checked the 1911 census and there were no Harkin/Harkins in Co. Longford. The online Irish phone book (which only has a percentage of phone users) shows one Harkin record in Co. Longford.
