The name McShanag is a variant of
the name Fox in Ireland which has
a number of origins. This name was
adopted by a number of different
native Gaelic Septs as well as
being brought to the country by
settlers from England.
The O'Sionnaigh Sept of County Cork
and the Mac an tSionnaigh Sept of
County Armagh were two such Septs
who, in addition to Fox and McShanag,
also changed their name to Shinnick
and MacAshinagh respectively.
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.
