The Irish name Rooney is derived from
the native Gaelic O'Ruanaidh Sept that
was located in County Down in the
North of the country.
The name is sometimes used as an
alternative to Mulrooney and it has
also been adopted by members of the
O'Runaidhin Sept of County Leitrim
who more usually changed their name
to Rooneen or Roonian.
A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
