Origin of the O'Keeffe Clan Name
The O’Keeffes are descendants of Caomh meaning”Kind, or gentle”. He lived in the eleventh century and was descended from Cathal mac Finguine, an 8th century King of Munster. An Eóganachta clan, they were active in the area of Fermoy, Co. Cork on the banks of the River Blackwater.
With the arrival of the Normans many clans were pushed west and so the O'Keeffes settled in the barony of Duhallow, in Dromagh, Dromtarriff parish. O’Keeffes are found today mainly in counties Cork and Kerry.
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.
