The name O'Keeffe in Ireland is derived
from the native Gaelic Sept O'Caoimh,
taken from a word meaning 'gentle'.
This Sept provided some of the Kings
of Munster and although they were
forced out of their Cork homeland by
the Anglo-Normans they did not go
very far. Cork, Kerry and the other
Munster Counties are where the
majority of descendants are 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.
