CARRAGHER Family History

Recorded in a number of spellings including (Mac) Caraher, (Mac) Carragher, Carah, Carrah, etc. but more usually without the 'Mac' or 'Mc' prefix, this is an Irish surname, but one which is closedly associated with the Scottish MacFearchair, the modern Farquar. It is claimed that the clan did originate in Scotland and probably before the 12th century a.d., but this seems impossible to verify. However nameholders are mostly to be found in the border area of Counties Armagh and Louth, between Ulster and Leinster provinces, a region of strong Scottish influence in the past, so this seems logical.
