Finerty Early Origins



The surname Finerty was first found in Roscommon (Irish: Ros Comáin) located in central Ireland in the province of Connacht, where the chief was anciently seated as one of the twelve Lords of Cruaghan in that county. 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 found later in Clannconon.where Teige Oge was the last Lord of Clannconon and Charles O'Finnaghty, his son, was the first to assume the surname. The line was descended from Muredach Maollethan, King of Connacht.
