The name McKee in Ireland is of dual origin. It was brought to the country by settlers from Scotland who arrived in the seventeenth century. It is also derived from the native Gaelic MacAodha Sept located in the North-East of the country. MacKay and Kee are variants of this name that is still mostly found in the Northen Counties.

A Sept or Clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors had a common surname and all inhabited the same lands.
