Sweeney Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Sweeney Family History


Sweeney Family History


The names Sweeney and McSweeney in Ireland are derived from a number of Gallowglass Septs called McSuichne that were established in the country in the fifteenth century. The name is now most commonly found in the Province of Munster and in County Cork in particular where the majority of descendants can be found.

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.
