The Irish name Donlevy is derived
from the native Gaelic
MacDuinnshleibhe Sept who were
located in Counties Donegal and
Down in the North of the country.
The name is taken from the word
'sliabh' which means 'mountain'.
A branch of this Sept migrated to
North Connaught in the seventeenth
century while another branch moved
to Scotland and became known as
Dunlop and Dunlief.
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.
