The Irish name Dowd is derived

Sligo and Mayo especially. Smaller
Septs dispersed to Kerry where they
are now known as Doody and to
Derry where they became Duddy.
Dodd and O'Dowda are other variants
of this name that can still be mostly
found in the Connaught Counties.
A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
