The names Collier and Collyer have exited in Ireland since 1305 and are derived from the occupational name. Familes bearing this name formed a Sept along native Gaelic lines and were know as Coileir. The principal settlement areas were in Counties Carlow, Kilkenny and Wexford where the majority of descendants can still be found.
