O'Mara / Family History
The names O'Mara, O'Meara and Mara in Ireland are derived from the native Gaelic O'Meadhra Sept, taken from a Gaelic word that means 'merry'. The village of Toomevara in County Tipperary is this Sept's legacy and it is in Tipperary and surrounding Counties that the majority of descendants can still be found.
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.
