Origin of the O'Loughlin Clan Name
This name comes from Mac Lachlainn and means son of Lochlann. Since lochlannach (Gaelic for lakes) was the term used by the Gaels to describe the Viking invaders from Norway, it is possible this surname is derived from descendants of those Norse who settled in the Uí Néill territory in the decades after their arrival on Rathlin island in 795.
It is known that a branch of the O’Neills took the name Mac Lochlainn and becme rival kings to the O’ Neills. The last Mac Lochlainn king was killed by King Brian O Neill and his son, Anrothan, went to Scotland and is the ascendant of the MacLachlans there.
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.
