Origin of the Doyle Clan Name
In the year c 800AD the first Vikings ploughed their boats into the sands just north of Howth Head, near our now capital Dublin. Members of the Doyle Clan or Clann O Dubhghaill were born.
The Doyle name is one of the most common names in Ireland today. The name Doyle is derived from the gaelic Ó Dubhghaill which comes from the irish “Dubh” meaning Dark and “Gall” meaning stranger. Dark Stranger is a description given to describe the invading Vikings. It was also used to make a distinction between the dark haired Danes between the fair haired Norwedians.
Thank you Stephanie! I have been meaning to write you a note and have been so crazy with work since we returned. The trip was unbelievable! We had a wonderful time and loved every minute of the trip.
