The Cullinane surname is an Anglicization of the Irish Gaelic "Ó Cuilleannáin."

Cullinane Early Origins



The surname Cullinane 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 at Mullinashee. They are descended from Cormac, son of Culenan, known as Cormac McCulenan, King and Bishop of Munster who reigned for seven years in 905. 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 England Scotland, Wales and the whole of Europe before the Norman Conquest from the 1st to 7th centuries. Many Irish clanns, sept names were intermixed and family groupings became almost indistinguishable. This family name was found later in Cork (Barryroe), Clare and east Munster.
