O'Shea Coat of Arms, Family Crest and O'Shea Family History


O'Shea Family History


The names Shea, O'Se and O'Shea in Ireland are derived from the native Gaelic O'Seaghdha Sept that is taken from a Gaelic word meaning 'hawklike' or 'stately'. Descendants can be found mostly in the ancestral homeland of County Kerry although a branch of the Sept migrated and became one of the 'Tribes of Kilkenny'.

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.
