Duhig Family HistoryThis unusual and interesting name is of Irish origin, and is a variant of the name (O')Duffy, itself widespread in Ireland. Duhig arose, as did the other variants, Doohey and Dowey, from local pronunciations of the Irish "O' Dubhthaigh", a surname in which the root word is "dubh", black. In its present form this surname is found mainly in South Munster, but there are several distinct septs of O'Duffy. Some members of these septs were remarkable for their contribution to the Church, the most noteworthy being Cele O'Duffy, Archbishop of Tuam, who was King Roderick O'Connors ambassador to Henry 11 in 1175.
