Mcentee Family History

This famous Irish clan surname, recorded in many and varied spellings, descends from the early scholars of Ireland known as the "saoi". The spellings forms include MacGinty, MacEntee, Ginty, Genty and Ginity, but however found the name is an anglicized form of the Gaelic "Mac an tSaoi", or the son of the scholar. Given that the clan were long famous for their territorial and disputes with their neighbours, to some it may suggest that the name was a nickname, and an ironic one at that! What is certain is that for variest reasons not unconnected with song, the clan is well known world wide.

Kevin McEntee

I am the great grandson of James McEntee (McAtee) born about 1839 in County Monaghan. Before 1850 he and his family emigrated to Prince Edward Island, Canada as part of the Monahan exodus led by Rev. John MacDonald. On PEI he was a farmer and married Catherine Gillis and raised 12 children, 5 sons, 7 daughters. I would truly like to know more about the McEntee's in Co. Monaghan and find possible family members there. If your surname is McEntee, I would enjoy hearing rom you.
