The Irish name Gallaghe has a long Gaelic heritage to its credit. The original Gaelic form of the name Gallaghe is O Gallchobhair, derived from the word "gallchobhar," which means "foreign help."

Gallaghe Early Origins



The surname Gallaghe was first found in County Donegal (Irish: Dún na nGall), northwest Ireland in the province of Ulster, sometimes referred to as County Tyrconnel, but claim descent from a warrior named "Gallchobhar" and held lands in the baronies of Raphoe and Tir Hugh. They held a castle at Ballyshannon and at one time also held the castle of Lifford.
