Aran Isles

Ancient connections between the Eoghanacht O’Donoghues and the Aran Isles may have dated back to the time of St Enda in the 5th century. O Siochain in ‘Aran – islands of legend’ states that O’Donohue was one of the most common names on the three islands in early 19th C. census records. Today many different spellings of the name are found on gravestones. This project will endeavour to explore this history.
