Early Origins of the McAtamney family

The surname McAtamney was first found in Leinster, where they held a family seat as Chiefs. Irish history, after the Norman Conquest of England, was strongly influenced by the invasion of Strongbow in 1172, almost equal to the enormous Irish cultural impact on England Scotland, Wales and the whole of Europe before the Norman Conquest from the 1st to 7th centuries. Many Irish clanns, sept names were intermixed and family groupings became almost indistinguishable. This family name was found later in County Down, Tyrone and Fermanagh where they also held estates.
