The names Shane and McShane
in Ireland are derived from the
native Gaelic MacSeain Septs who
also frequently anglicized their
name to Johnson.
In Ulster the McShanes were a branch
of the O'Neills and in Westmeath they
were a branch of the O'Farrells. The
name is today mostly found in Ulster,
County Tyrone in particular.
A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
