Odowd Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Odowd Family History


Odowd Family History


The Irish name O'Dowd is derived from the native Gaelic O'Dubhda Septs that were located in Counties Sligo and Mayo especially. Smaller Septs dispersed to Kerry where they are now known as Doody and to Derry where they became Duddy. Dodd and O'Dowda are other variants of this name that can still be mostly found in the Connaught Counties.

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.
