The names Keeney, Keany and Keney
in Ireland are derived from the
Gaelic O'Cein Sept that was based
in County Waterford in the South East.
Other bearers of these names may
have taken their name from families
of the O'Cathain Sept of County
Derry in the North of the country,
more often changed to Cahan and Kane.
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.
