About

Welcome to a blog on the Parish of Effin Parish and its History.

During my study for the Certificate in Local History at the University of Limerick (2011), I had to undertake a lot of local history research and came across a lot of interesting facts on Effin which I have included in this blog. I hope to grow this site to include more articles as I come across interesting facts about our Parish.

Effin is in the Electoral Division of Tobernea, in Civil Parish of Effin, in the Barony of Coshma, in the County of Limerick. The current population of the parish is approximately 1200 (2016 Census).

The Irish name for Effin is Eifinn

Effin is on Logainm.ie: Effin.

The following facilities are in the parish.

Check out our Facebook Group Page with more articles, and photos,  submitted by various members of the community. https://www.facebook.com/groups/effin

I hope you enjoy this blog and find some of the articles, useful and interesting.

  1. Anne Marie I have written a few articles about the Fitzgibbon family from Effin and one about the famine years in the area. If you send me an email address I will send them to review to see if they would be something that you would like to include. Jim Regan email mutharegan@aol.com.
    I love what you are doing.

  2. I would like to be in touch with anyone who knew the Quilty family . I believe the family were cattle dealers in the Effin area . I would like to be in touch with the child / children or grandchildren of Christina Quilty .

  3. Hello, Anne Marie,
    My great-great-grandfather Michael Callaghan was born in Effin in 1838 and went to Australia in 1858 after his mother died in that latter famine. I wrote his biography ten or so years ago and am revisiting it to do a better job. I could really use some help with what Effin was like back then. You can reach me at the email below and see my earlier work at https://www.callaghansofbirdslanding.com/
    Thank you.
