As so often happens at least with me, the final revealed goal sometimes lags the effort.  With that said and based on many emails from MacTighernans around the world it is now the goal of this specific web site to list all MacTighernans that served in their countries military from the beginning to and including WW II.  It is meant as a tribute to the many McTernans / McTiernans who served and or gave their lives in the many wars for freedom.  Unless noted all listed are British, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand soldiers and sailors.  The American war records for many that served in the Great War and in WW II are woefully incomplete and those that exist are scattered over numerous web sites and as such are very difficult to find and include in this page.  The numerous American McTernans will be listed as soon as found.

If in the mean time you have a MacTighernan in your family that served in his country's armed serves please send me his or her info. 

While I do have some WW II veterans included I am sure that list comes up short.   Yet with that said those WW II guys were the ones that saved civilization so any honoring of them is well deserved even though a bit incomplete. 

I have noted the DNA Group by the individual where known.  The references to the MacTighernan DNA study is at this web site  http://mctiernan.com/McTmaps.htm  Please send me any info or photos on the MacTighernans that served and should be included in this web site.

From Paul-UK McTernan who is in the T3  DNA group Paul operates a travel service and a major part of his business is battlefield tours. 

"Thank you for your very interesting email concerning the McTiernans in various Armed Forces. Clearly a lot of research has been done. My tour operating business has a tour programe dedicated to Battlefield Tours, primarily featuring The Great War and WW II. As a consequence I have an interest in the subjects but also visit the areas particularly in N. France and Belgium.  You and the other MacTighernains may be interested to look at our website where all of our Battlefield Tours are featured. http://www.leger.co.uk

As a former Marine this is my only commercial.  One of the best I have heard for a tribute to the US Marines and all servicemen and woman who have served  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VQkebaQWmU

The Leitrim Wars of the undertakers vs. The O'Ruairc   1

In 1641, Mulmory MacTernan of Lisnanorrus, Inishmagrath, Barony of Drumahaire, Co Leitrim, chief of the clan, was a resident justice of the peace for Co Leitrim.  In February 1642, Sir Frederick Hamilton, [ namesake for the town of Manorhamilton] sent a force of 80 horse and foot to relieve the protestants at Parke Castle. On their return to Sir Frederick's castle they were attacked by 1000 Irish rebels.  After a fierce battle the English won and killed 60 of the rebels.  Mulmory MacTernan was one of the 60 killed.


The Irish Rebellion of 1798   1

1. Roger McTiernan, one of three rebels arrested near Drumkeeran for helping the French.  Roger was charged with having a gun on his person.  No details survive but the other 2 rebels were hung.

Background:  The Irish Rebellion of 1798 comprised a scattered series of local uprisings and desperate incursions that, tragically for the Irish rebels, failed to cohere.  In Leitrim, the spirit of rebellion peaked in 1795 - three years before General Humbert's French troops and the local Irish allies marched almost the full length of the county, with the government's superior force [led by the famous General Cornwallis who surrendered to GW's forces at Yorktown in 1781]  in pursuit, towards their eventual defeat just over the Co. Longford border at Ballinamuck. 

Co Leitrim was shaken by violent Defender disturbances 1793 and 1795, culminating in the battle of Drumcollop which brought Co Leitrim to a state of insurrection.  But Leitrim had risen too early, and the government's suppression of the Defenders and, later, the United Irishmen, was brutally effective.

The Imperial Yeomanry was a British volunteer cavalry regiment that mainly saw action during the Second Boer War. Officially created on 24 December 1899, the regiment was based on members of standing Yeomanry regiments, but also contained a large contingent of mid-upper class English volunteers. In Ireland 120 men were recruited in February 1900. It was officially disbanded in 1908.

On 13 December 1899, the decision to allow volunteer forces serve in the Second Boer War was made. Due to the string of defeats during Black Week in December, 1899, the British government realized they were going to need more troops than just the regular army, thus issuing a Royal Warrant on 24 December 1899. This warrant officially created the Imperial Yeomanry.

The Royal Warrant asked standing Yeomanry regiments to provide service companies of approximately 115 men each. In addition to this, many British citizens (usually mid-upper class) volunteered to join the new regiment. Although there were strict requirements, many volunteers were accepted with substandard horsemanship/marksmanship; however, they had significant time to train while awaiting transport.

The first contingent of recruits contained 550 officers, 10371 men with 20 battalions and four companies, which arrived in South Africa between February and April, 1900. Upon arrival, the regiment was sent throughout the zone of operations.
