McCrohan.net is a community website dedicated to research and discussion
about the McCrohan family name, and the genealogy of its bearers,
whether they be called MacCriomhthainns (in the original Irish) or any
of the many popular anglicisations of the name: McCrohon, McCrohan,
MacCrohan, Mac-Crohan, McCrehin, O'Crohan, MacCrehin and Mac-Crohon (in
Spain), O'Crohon, MacCrohon etc.
While much of the content is available to all visitors, posting messages and replies in the discussion forum (where members discuss their genealogy and help each other research their family trees), the family tree itself and the ability to send messages to other McCrohan.net members are all features that are restricted to registered members. Membership is free, but we do require that applicants provide some information about themselves and their interest in McCrohan genealogy to ensure that our members all share a genuine interest in the subject which brings us together.

Although we can't vouch for its veracity, the following extract from "Memory Cups of Panhandle Pioneers" (Clarendon Press, 1945) has a page on the McCrohans of New Mexico and Texas.. Thanks to Trevor Trimmer for spotting this and sharing.
Eileen writes "I recently received an email from a Jane, stating that her father was Thomas F Crohan
(O’Crohan) and his father was Thomas T. Crohan (O’Crohan) the son that went to
America and his father was Tomas
O’Crohan (The Islandman). "
Working through my backlog of documents to post, and came across the following documents contributed by John McCrohan of Renard (again). John mentions in his email that he received them from Inés in Buenos Aires, a descendent of Don José.
Unfortunately for some of us, the documents are in Spanish only, so it would be great if there's anyone out there with the appropriate language skills who could translate these to English one day.
Publicity featuring Valentia Island, Renard Point etc
With thanks to John McCrohan of Renard, County Kerry in Ireland for requesting a copy of this short publicity slot from Guinness, and sharing it with us. This 4 megabyte film is of interest here, because it features background images of the Irish McCrohan heartland.
To further put the film in context, I'm copying a short article from "The Kingdom" newspaper, which was published September 15, 2005.
I'm delighted to say that the photo gallery is back in action. See link on the left to "Photo Gallery". As I don't have as much time to tend to McCrohan.net as I used to, I had to disable the photo gallery some time back when upgrading ..
Apart from its enclosing earthwork there are no visible remains of this castle, which was located on the lower South slopes of Bentee Mountain. It is associated with the McCrohan branch of the O’Sullivan Mores (Smith 1756, 107), and is referred to as ‘Letirmiccrohan’ in RIA MS 24 K 43.
