First things first! You are too early to be asking about permission
from priests yet.
If you have Web acess there are several sites that have "Getting Started"
articles that will show you the process to follow. If you don't, then
I could e-mail one to you. This group periodically posts one too.
Here's one site to look at for starters;
Post your query on CAREY at the SURNAMES mailist of Rootsweb.
GENNAM-L ( soc.genealogy.surnames)
That will be a permanent post that people will be able to read at a later date, and not disappear after one day, more or less, as it will here.
I am sending instructions on posting to that newgroup by separate mail.
I read where they now have an online form to fill out that makes it

O'CIARDHA or O'Carey, chiefs of Cabre O'Ciardha, now the barony of "Carbery" in the county Kildare. They were also found in Mayo and Sligo.
They were also Lords in Kildare.
Also from the O'CIARDHA name was KEARY; anglicised as O'Cearry, O'Carry,
O'Carrie, Carry, Carey, Keary. In 1815 a Thomas Keary of the KEARY
pedigree, changed their name from O'Cary to Keary after converting
to the Protestant religion.
MagFhiachra was also anglicised as Carey, Keary, and McKeighry.
There are two other search engines that allow you to search the
archives of GENNAM-L (soc.genealogy.surnames) back to the
beginning of the group, in November of 1994. They are:
You can search old posts to many newsgroups for the CAREY name at;
