Tinley’s Irish Roots
Maryann is of Northern Irish heritage and one of Tinley’s first European settlers, John Fulton, was from what is now known as Northern Ireland. Also interesting to know, Tinley Park also has a “sister city” in Ireland along with one in Germany —Mallow, Ireland and Büdingen, Germany.
