The names O'Donaghue and Donoghue
in Ireland are derived from the native
Gaelic O'Donnchadha Sept that was
located in Counties Cork and Kerry.
There were separate Septs in Counties
Galway and Cavan and it is in these
four Counties that the majority of
descendants can still be found.
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.
