The surname Athey was first found in Galway (Irish: Gaillimh) part of the province of Connacht, located on the west coast of the Island, where they held a family seat as one of the 'Tribes of Galway.' Irish history, after the Norman Conquest of England, was strongly influenced by the invasion of Strongbow in 1172, almost equal to the enormous Irish cultural impact on EnglandScotland, Wales and the whole of Europe before the Norman Conquest from the 1st to 7th centuries. Many Irish clans, sept names were intermixed and family groupings became almost indistinguishable. This family name settled in Galway and it is said to be of Norman origin.
