O'Donaghue Family History


The names O'Donaghue and Donoghue in Ireland are derived from the native Gaelic O'Donnchadha Sept that was located in Counties Cork and Kerry. There were separate Septs in Counties Galway and Cavan and it is in these four Counties that the majority of descendants can still be found.

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.
