The Conroy Surname Project
The Conroy Family Project is open to all who are interested in working together to find their common heritage through sharing of information and dna testing. All variant spellings are welcome. If your Surname is missing and should be included, we'll be glad to add it. Please visit our website and add your family to the Patriarch Page. There are 3 main areas of Ireland with Conroys, they are: Galway/Mayo Roscommon Laois/Offaly The Conroy clan in County Laois is supposed to have originated when a fellow by the name Conn Dunne, ran to warn the O'Moores that the English were invading. He was thereafter given the name 'Conn na ratha' - Conn the runner - or Conrahy, that evolved over time into Conroy. This family is then related to Dunne and Dunn families. Conroys from Roscommon include one of the famous writers of the Annals of the Four Masters. Many were renowned scholars in the middle ages. Conroys from Galway/Mayo include the poet Padraig O'Conaire, whose statue stands - or rather sits - in Eyre Square in Galway.
