McTernan / Family History


The names McTernan, Ternan and Tiernan in Ireland are derived from the native Gaelic Mac Tighearnain Sept, taken from a Gaelic word meaning 'lord'. This Sept was located in Counties Cavan and Leitrim and it is here that the majority of descendants bearing these names can still today 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.
