Early Origins of the Conarty family
The surname Conarty was first found in Donegal
(Irish: Dún na nGall), northwest Ireland
in the province of Ulster
, sometimes referred to as County Tyrconnel, where they held a family seat
in the barony of Banagh. Irish history was greatly influenced by the Norman invasion
of 1172, and thereafter, the surnames of Irish Gaelic clanns and septs and many of the Norman families became almost indistinguishable. This family name was traced as being descended from the Princes of Tyrone
through Aodh Anrachan, a younger brother of Donal an Togdhamh through the MacSweeney line.
