The names Durkin, Durcan and Dorcan in Ireland are all derived from the native Gaelic O'Duarcain and MacDuarcain Septs that were located in Connaught Province in the West of the country and especially in County Sligo. Gurkin is another variant sometimes used as an anglicized form of these Sept names.
