The names Galloway and Galwey in Ireland are derived from the Gaelic de Gallaidhe sept that was originally of Norman origin. Families of the name were prominent in Ulster Province and especially in County Cork. The Ulster Galloways may take their name from Galloway in nearby Scotland, while the southern Galloways and Galweys may take their name from Galway City.

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.
