O'Keeffe Family History
The name O'Keeffe in Ireland is derived from the native Gaelic Sept O'Caoimh, taken from a word meaning 'gentle'. This Sept provided some of the Kings of Munster and although they were forced out of their Cork homeland by the Anglo-Normans they did not go very far. Cork, Kerry and the other Munster Counties are where the majority of descendants are 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.
