TCD students, Limerick

Our family were modest rural Co.Limerick and Co.Tipperary farmers.
It seems unlikely they are related to 17th-18th century families sending their sons to TCD.
For what it is worth, here are the known entries for Humphreys (and related spellings) for Co.Limerick and Co.Tipperary in [TCD Alumni].

born Limerick, 1695.
Son of George Humphreys, "plumbarius" (plumber).
Entered TCD in 1712, age 17.
