The names Bresnahan, Brosnan and

the native Gaelic O'Brosnachain
sept that was located in County
Kerry in the South of the country.
The name is most likely taken from
the small townland of Brosna that is
located in that region.
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.
