number of native Gaelic Septs.
The Sept O'hEarchaidh which was
more usually anglicized as Harrihy and
the O'hEarchadha Sept, more usually
anglicized to Horohoe, both used
Harrison as their anglo equivalent.
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.
