The name McBride in Ireland is
derived from the native Gaelic
Mac Giolla Bhrighde Sept, which
translates from Irish as
'a devotee of Saint Brigid'.
The Sept was located in County
Donegal in the North West of the
country. Some descendants may be
of Scottish origin, the name having
been brought into Ulster by Scottish
settlers in the seventeenth century.
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.
