The Irish name Hennigan is derived

located in County Mayo in the West
of the country. It is in the Western
Counties that the majority of
descendants can still today be found.
These Sept names were also
anglicized as Heneghan and Henihan.
A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
