DELAHUNTY Family HistoryRecorded as Delahunt and Delahunty, this interesting and unusual surname is Irish. It derives from the pre 10th century Gaelic O' Dulchaointigh, meaning the male descendant of the satirist! The vast majority of Irish clan names do originate from a nickname for the first chief of the clan, and this seems to be another example. However we were surprised to find that satirists existed seven centuries or more ago. A more likely explanation is that the original chief was a preacher of some sort, but not a churchman. In former times the surname was also recorded as O' Dolleghenty and O' Dolochanty, and in these spellings appears in what was Kings county until recently, but is now known as Offaly...

I’m a Delahunty from Munster in Ireland. I can’t trace my Delahunty family further than 4 generations back although I know that my great grandfather had a large family. Many of whom went to America. I also know my great grandfather did not originally come from Munster so I suppose I’m just wondering if I have any connection to Delahunty’s living outside Munster or indeed, in Munster. I don’t know a lot about this side of my family and am keen to learn more. I know I could do a family tree but this is faster and worth a try
