The names Athey and Athy are

Atoi Sept who were one of the
famous 'Tribes of Galway'.
These families were originally of
Norman descent but became
completely integrated into Gaelic
society having originally settled in
County Kildare at the start of the
fourteenth century. The town of
Athy still exists in County Kildare.
A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
