To Boris Johnson from the Harlow Irish: 100 Irish surnames apart from Murphy

THE Irish Times has reported that Boris Johnson, who will probably be the next prime minister, may be having trouble with Irish names.

It reported “At the Foreign Office he was heard to muse as to whether Chancellor Angela Merkel had served in East Germany’s Stasi secret police. French president Emmanuel Macron was a “jumped-up Napoleon”. As for Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, “Why isn’t he called Murphy like all the rest of them”.

With the help of our friends from the Harlow Irish Facebook page, we have provided a list of 100 Irish surnames from families who have or are living in Harlow. These are all surnames of people from Mizen Head to Ballinsloe to Clones who moved from Ireland to Harlow.

As Harlow MP Robert Halfon and the leaders of the Harlow Conservative group, cllrs Joel Charles and Andrew Johnson are such fans of Mr Johnson, they may want to swot up on the list.

We hope this helps.
