Here we have a double - two Ryan brothers marrying two Crowe women!
The Ryans are difficult to research because they are the most populous name in the area. I have two contacts for Ryan and they both limit themselves to small areas of interest for obvious reasons!
The Heffernans too were an important name in Tipperary and the Crowes in this region have several links to Heffernan.

This one features TIpperary Tim to which we need to add some kind of biography. The original biography I read gave a family tree and it was so full of holes it took an age to research it properly. Even now several researchers are unsure how this tree might attach to others and highlights the need to find descendants for DNA testing. Of course it is also true the man was elusive and embelished many a story. However, we do know he was an accomplished athlete (medals on display in Thurles, Tipperary) and musician and would cycle tens of miles to reach far flung hurling games, even in the next county.
