COGHLAN Family HistoryThis name, with variant spelling Coghlan, Co(u)ghlin and Cohalan, is an Anglicized form of two distinct Gaelic Irish sept names, the first being MacCochlain of County Offaly, and the latter, O Cochlain of County Cork. The Gaelic prefix "mac" indicates "son of" and "O", "male descendant of", plus the personal byname "cochlan" meaning "a short hooded cloak"; hence, "descendant of the cowled or hooded one". The MacCoughlan territory comprised the modern barony of Garry castle, County Offaly, and they had many strongholds in the Banagher - Clonmacnois area.

Hope everything goes well! I am Santiago Capdevila from Argentina. I have got Coghlan ancestors that emigrated to Argentina between 1860 and 1890. They are Patrick Coghlan (1821- 1905) married with Francesca doyle. They had at least one child: Joseph Coghlan (1853-1892) married with Elisa Byrne (1863-1884) They lived in Kilmuckridge before their trip.This year I emigrated for work to Ireland, So I would like to know more about them (cementers, church in which they married) to learn about my family?
