The name Burns in Ireland is usually of immigrant origin having been brought to the country by settlers from Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. Several native Gaelic Septs also occasionaly adopted Burns as the anglicized form of their name including the MacConboirne Sept of County Mayo, and the O'Broin Sept of Couty Wicklow.

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.
