Genealogy: Murphy / O’Callaghan

Hello! This post might sound random but I thought I’d give it a shot. My mother’s family is from Millstreet (her grandma and grandpa) and I was wondering if there are still any family members who live there. They would be part of the O’Callaghan and Murphy families. They immigrated to San Francisco, CA and Oregon in the early 1900’s but my mom said she kept in touch with family who still lived in Ireland when she was younger. Mary Murphy and Dennis O’Callaghan are my great-grandparents for reference. (Side note: O’Connor is my married name so no blood relation to O’Connor’s that I know of). 😊 – from Kelly O’Connor in California
