The names Scanlon, Scanlan and
Scannell in Ireland all derive from the
native Gaelic O'Scannail Sept, taken
from a word meaning 'contention'.
There were several distinct Septs but
the most important were based in the
Province of Munster and in County
Cork in particular. Other Septs were
located in Counties Galway, Clare
and further North in Fermanagh.
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.
