The O'Donoghue Society Surname Project
For people of the Ó Donnchadha name however spelt today. There are eleven recognisable ancient O?Donoghue tribal groups in Ireland. They were in Munster: Tipperary, Cork/Kerry, Clare - Leinster: Kilkenny, Wicklow/Dublin, Meath, Ossory - Connaught: Cavan (until 16th C.then Ulster), Galway, Mayo/Sligo. Some of these tribes are said to have come from common stock. Potential scope and objectives of the project:?To aid those who are encountering barriers to their family history research, to find new lines of approach ?To build a data base of DNA patterns for the different origin locations across Ireland, potentially providing directional guidance for those who do not know where their ancestors came from ?To confirm known or suspected relationships in historic areas of O?Donoghue occupation (such as the O?Donoghues of Glenflesk/Killarney) or for people for whom oral tradition describes migration from a common location
