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 form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
