The name Ford in Ireland is

settlers from England, especially
during the seventeenth century.
A number of Gaelic Septs adopted
Ford as the anglicized form of their
name including the O'Fuarain Sept
of County Limerick who also
changed their name to Foran.
A Sept or Clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors had a common surname and all inhabited the same lands.
