Background: O' Conchobhair. The name of six distinct and important septs. In Connacht there were O'Connor of O'Conor Don (of which was the last High King of Ireland) with its branches O'Conor Roe and O'Conor Sligo; also O'Conor Faly (i.e. of Offaly), O'Connor Kerry and O'Connor of Corcomroe (north Clare). The prefix O, formerly widely discarded, has been generally resumed. Similarly the variant form Connors has become O'Connor again. It is one of the most numerous names in Ireland particularly in County Kerry.

Variations: Connor, Conner, Conor, Connors, O'Connor, Connores, Conner, Connar, Connars, O'Connar, O'Conner, Connair, Connairs, Connaire, Connaires, Cawner, Cawners, Caunnor, Cauner, Cauners

This info thrills my soul! biggrin.gif I have always been drawn to County Kerry but didn't know why; now I do! Now I have a question for you. My husband's mother was adopted in Ireland and brought to the states. Unfortunately she died an untimely death when he was but 16. Is there any way for him to research his family ties? He is very proud of his 100% Irish mother but has no clue where to go from there. Can you help us?
