The name Gray in Ireland is usually of immigrant origin having been brought into the Province of Ulster by settlers who arrived from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. It is also derived from the native Gaelic Mac Cathail Riabhaigh Sept of Counties Longford and Leitrim who also anglicized their name as Culreavy.
