George Clooney travels to Ireland this summer in search of his 'Cooney' cousins in Cork. During an interview for his new film Leatherheads last week George let slip that he would be 'travelling to Cork, a city in Ireland in search of my{his} Irish relations'. He plans to leave LA towards the end of the summer. Ireland women time to get prepared!!
RE: Cooney not Clooney
When Irish people emigrated to America many did not know how to spell their names and it is believed many Cooney's left Ireland with the belief that Clooney was the correct spelling!

I thrilled that George Clooney is related to the Guilfoyles, my Great Great Grandmother Johanna came from Tipperary her father was John Guilffoyle. His profession was an Acountant. Johanna was married to John Williams was serving in the Royal Artillery the and moved to Nova Scotia, Canada with their young son William where John was based for a few years. During that time they had two more Children also named Johanna Jr. and John Jr.

Not sure when they returned to England, all I know they lived in Chatham and later in Tavistock Devon, hope this throws some light on my relatives. Iam pleased to do this ,it maybe of interest to George. Within the family there are likeness.
