translates as 'illustrious'.
The main Septs were located in
Counties Clare and Limerick. One

name to Brady. The variant Grady
is quite numerous in Connaught.
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.
