Multiple Origins for the Surname Logue



The surname Logue is derived from the Gaelic "˛ Maol mhaodh˛g," or "the descendant of the devotee of St. Mhaodh˛g" and was often anglicized as Mulvogue. This surname was also derived from "˛ Laogh˛g." In Galway, this name was often anglicized as Leech, causing much confusion to genealogists, as this name exists in all the provinces of Ireland, but in many cases, especially in Eastern Ireland, Leech is of English descent, although it has long been in Ireland.

Logue Early Origins



The surname Logue was first found in County Galway (Irish: Gaillimh) part of the province of Connacht, located on the west coast of the Island, where the family was first recorded, and members were chiefs of a district between Athenry and Athlone. Likely of this same lineage was St. Mogue, first Bishop of Ferns, in Wexford. He was born in about 558 on St. Mogue's Island, County Cavan. He went to Wales for a time to be a pupil of St. David, and is said to have performed miracles. His body was enshrined in a bronze casket which is now preserved in the National Museum in Dublin.
