COUNTY WEXFORD

Please NOTE! Additional materials for this county will be found in the Irish Resources page, which has documents and publications covering all of Ireland.

In the second century A.D. this area belonged to the Menapii, who are said to have descended from a tribe of the same name in Belgic Gaul, and were supposed to be Viri Beglici or Fir-Bolgs. Later the area was variously known as Corteigh (as in the modern Enniscorthy), Moragh (from which the clan McMurrough gets its name), or Laighion (sometimes applied to all of Leinster, and from which that name is derived). The McMorrough Kavanagh clan dominated the area. Lesser clans or septs included Redond, Hayes, McDavymore, Walsh, Esmond, Masterson, O'Broder, O'Bolger, Sinnott, O'Lynan, O'Doran, McVaddock, Furlong, Redmond, Walsh, Leffer, O'Hartley, Hoare, Wadding, O'Larkin, Rossiter, Codd, Stafford, Meyler, Keating, and Devereux.
