DEERY Family History

This most interesting and unusual surname is the Anglicized form of the Gaelic name "O' Daighre", which is composed of the Gaelic prefix "O", meaning "male descendant of" and the personal name "Daighre", fiery. The name is found widespread in Ulster and North Connacht, particularly Derry, where it was borne by a notable ecclesiastical family. The name is sometimes found as Derry, but this is the Anglicized form of another name, "O' Doireidh". More confusion arises between these two names because both were located in the same area of North West Ulster; O' Daighre of Derry Church, with the family of O' Doireidh of Donaghmore found in the nearby diocese of Raphow...
