Where did the Irish O'Dunlea family come from? What is the Irish O'Dunlea family crest and coat of arms? When did the O'Dunlea family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the O'Dunlea family history?

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