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

Dunlea Early Origins



The surname Dunlea 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.
