The names Henehan, Henaghan
and Henihan in Ireland are derived
from the native Gaelic O'hEineachain
Sept that was located in County
Mayo in the West of the country.
This Sept name was also occasionally
anglicized to Bird by virtue of the fact
that the Gaelic word for bird is 'ean'.
It is in the Western Counties that the
majority of Henehans can still be found.
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.
