An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The original Gaelic versions of today's Irish names demonstrate a proud, ancient past. The original Gaelic form of the name Tuohey is O Tuathaigh, which is derived from tuathach, which means ruler.

Tuohey Early Origins



The surname Tuohey was first found in County Galway (Irish: Gaillimh) part of the province of Connacht, located on the west coast of the Island, where they held a family seat as a clann, and their chief was known as O'Tuathaigh (meaning ruler). They were amongst the many tribes of western Ireland, septs of the Hy Niall who were descended from King Niall of the Nine Hostages. King Niall was perhaps the most famous of all Irish Kings being responsible for harassing the Roman departure from England at the foot of the Alps.
