The names Carney and Kearney in Ireland are usually derived from the native Gaelic Mac Cearnaigh Sept, meaning 'victorious' and from the O'Catharnaigh Sept, which translates as 'warlike'. The town of Ballymacarney in County Meath still exists as the original homestead although Carney can also be found in Ulster Province.
