O'Sullivan Family History


Together the names Sullivan and O'Sullivan rank as the third most frequently found in Ireland. There were two main Septs with this name. The O'Sullivan Mor Sept was based in County Kerry and the O'Sullivan Beare Sept was based in County Cork. It is mainly in these two 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.
