It is generally thought that the surname Dullea is derived from the Irish O Dubhalla sept of Muskerry, Cork. It has also been suggested that Dullea comes from a branch of the famous MacDuinnsleibhe sept. However, since the MacDuinnsleibhe sept was located in Ulster and bearers of the name Dullea were for the most part located in the south western counties of Munster, this connection seems rather unlikely.

Dullea Early Origins



The surname Dullea was first found in the south western counties of Munster, where the name dates back to sixteenth century Fiants in County Cork. These records include mention of Donell and Owen MacDermodie O'Donlegh, who along with many other men of Cork, were pardoned in 1586.
