Hello,

The surname Moran is a very common name all over Ireland from one end to the other. The greatest concentrations came from the counties of Mayo, Roscommon, Galway, Leitrim, Dublin, and Kerry, with others coming from Westmeath, Kildare, Wexford, and Limerick. However, by 1750 there wasn't a county in Ireland where the Moran surname wasn't found.

What have you tried so far in tracing your family backward to Ireland?
