The name Sloan in Ireland is
derived from the native Gaelic
O'Sluaghain Sept that is taken
from a Gaelic word meaning 'army'.
The Sept was based in East Ulster,
in Counties Armagh and Down in
particular and it is in these Counties
that the majority of descendants
can still today be found. The variant
Sloyan can be found in County Mayo.
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.
