The name McGuckin in Ireland is derived from both the native Gaelic Mag Eochaidhin Sept of Ulster and from the Mag Uiginn Sept of County Tyrone which was also anglicized as MacGuigan and MacGoogan. It is in the Northern Counties that the majority of descendants bearing these names can today be found.
