The names Breheny and Brahney in

Gaelic Mac an Bhreitheamhnaigh Sept
that was located in the West of the
country and in County Sligo especially.
This Gaelic Sept name was more
often anglicized as Judge, which is
the literal meaning of the name.
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.
