The name Graham in Ireland was brought to the country by Scottish settlers in the seventeenth century.

The Sept was located in County Westmeath and Graham now ranks among the seventy most frequently found names in Ireland.

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.
