Mcgreevy Family History


The name McGreevy in Ireland is derived from the native Gaelic Mag Riabhaigh Sept that was located in Connaught Province and in County Roscommon in particular. Their chiefs were the lords of Moylurg. The variants MacAreevy and McCreevy are sometimes used as variants of the anglicized form of this sept name.

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.
