The O’Donoghue name is ancient in Irish history. It has been spelt in around three hundred different ways over the centuries, but the origin remains the Gaelic Irish Ó Donnchadha. These many different spellings can be seen on the Name variants area of this site. This book traces the development of the name from early tribal times through the phases of Irish history and migration – events, people and places are described and illustrated. If your heritage interests you, this 128 page A5 hardback will be enjoyable reading.
Written by Rod O’Donoghue, a student of Irish history, and illustrated by his son Richard, this book is the result of five years research.
