The Gallaghers


“Clann” means family grouping in the Gaelic language. The Clann Ui Ghallchobhair or Gallagher Clan can trace their family roots back to the early centuries A.D.. We are a "royal" clan according to the old Irish genealogies. Down through the ages the Gallaghers, as we are most usually called in English, have been involved in many episodes of history, have spread througout the World and have left their mark in many corners of our world. This is the story of their background and their  travels through time, from the earliest times, their movement around the world and the many personalities both notable and less well known who have played their varied parts.

We are interested in building up a body of such stories and we will be indebted to anyone who will furnish us with any.
