O'Shea / Family History


The names Shea, O'Se and O'Shea in Ireland are derived from the native Gaelic O'Seaghdha Sept that is taken from a Gaelic word meaning 'hawklike' or 'stately'. Descendants can be found mostly in the ancestral homeland of County Kerry although a branch of the Sept migrated and became one of the 'Tribes of Kilkenny'.

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.
