The name Cannon in Ireland is
derived from the native Gaelic

in the North-West of the country.
The name is taken from a Gaelic
word meaning 'wolf cub'.
A separate O'Cananain Sept was
located in Connaught Province. The
name was also brought to the country
by settlers from England, especially
during the seventeenth century.
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.
