Darragh Family History

This interesting surname is a variant of Darragh, for which there are two likely origins. The most probable origin is as a patronymic name from the Scottish Gaelic MacDara, "son of oak". The Stirling Darrochs derived their name from a placename Darroch, near Falkirk. Mariote Darrach appears as a nurse of Lady Margaret, second daughter of James 11 in 1462. Varying spellings of the name include Darrocht 1550, Darroycht 1553, and Darroche 1561. Darragh is also an Irish name occasionally found with the prefix mac, mainly associated with north-east Ulster, and is Anglicized as "Oakes", as "dair" is gaelic for oak...

My great grandmother was born Margaret Darragh in 1830 at Old Court, Skibbereen,.County Cork. Her father was a Coastguard or Customs Officer, a branch in that time of the Royal Navy. Any connections out there?
