Background: Donoghue or Donohoe, more properly O'Donoghue, is one of the most important as well as the most numerous names in Ireland. In Irish O Donnchadha, it denotes descendant of Donnchadh, anglice Donogh, a personal name. Several distinct septs o the name existed in early times. O these the principal are O'Donoghue of Desmond, O'Donoghue of Ui Maine (Hy Many) and O'Donoghue of Co. Cavan. The modern representatives of the two latter usually spell the name Donoghoe, and are still found plentifully in Counties Galway and Cavan, while the first-named are mostly in Counties Kerry and Cork, I.e. in the Desmond country. They are of the same stock as the O'Mahonys, descended from Domhnall son of the King of Munster who took part in the battle of Clontarf in 1014.
