Genealogy of the Fanning Family from Thurles Co Tipperary Ireland
Fanning Graves in Two-Mile-Borris Cemeteries, Co Tipperary, Ireland
Photos of Fanning gravestones in Twomileborris Cemetery Co Tipperary Ireland.
Two-Mile-Borris is a small village to the south of Thurles in North Tipperary. The site of an Iron Age Village was discovered here and during early medieval times there were settlements at Two-Mile-Borris. The modern village of Two-Mile-Borris is built on the site of an Anglo-Norman borough.
There are two cemeteries in Two-Mile-Borris, an old and new.
Gravestone Inscription for Andrew (Andy) Fanning of Moycarky, who died 16 July 1982, and is buried in Two-Mile-Borris New Cemetery.
I was told the story of these entrances but have forgotten. If anyone knows I’d like to know the full story.
Tipperary Studies has many Graveyard transcriptions on their site and they are adding more. They also have a lot of other interesting genealogical documents.
I have done an Ancestry DNA test and also have uploaded my test results to GedMatch. My GedMatch kit numbers are A029138 and T470174. Please contact me if we are a match.

hi i was just wondering do you have any more info on how all the fanning graves in two-mile-borris ar related to each other some of them graves are my grandparents but i was always curious to know where we related to the other fannings of coldfiels was told there was two different fanning familys not related in the one lane. thanks
I did a little investigating on John Fanning (the politician) married to Josephine who lived in Twomileborris but could not find a connection to my ancestors. On a forum I read that through DNA testing his ancestors are related to Edmund Fanning who emigrated to Connecticut America c1650. I am also (through DNA testing) connected to this Edmund or to his ancestors who stayed in Ireland. So if you go back far enough many of the Fannings would be related. The short answer is no I have not researched the Fanning families at Twomileborris as my ancestors came from around Loughmore. So I don’t know how these families might be connected. One related Fanning family live at Shanbally Moycarky.
