The Irish name Callaghan is
derived from the native Gaelic
O'Ceallachain Sept. The name is
taken from a word meaning 'strife'.
Ceallachain was a ninth century
King of Munster and it is in Cork
that a large proportion of descendants
can still be found. The Sept moved to
County Clare in the seventeenth
century where the town of
O'Callaghans Mills still exists.
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.
