McTernan Family History
The names McTernan, Ternan and Tiernan in Ireland are derived from the native Gaelic Mac Tighearnain Sept, taken from a Gaelic word meaning 'lord'. This Sept was located in Counties Cavan and Leitrim and it is here that the majority of descendants bearing these names can still today 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.
