HEHIR Family History

The (O)Hehir clan have, for centuries, been established in the ancient territory of Thomond or Tuathmhumhan, comprising most of Co. Clare with adjacent parts of Counties Limerick and Tipperary. The name is an Anglicized form of the Old Gaelic "OhAichir", the Gaelic prefix "O" indicating "male descendant of", plus the personal byname Aichear", from "aichear", fierce, sharp. Traditionally, Irish family names are taken from the heads of tribes or from an illustrious warrior, and are usually prefixed by "O", descendant of, or "mac" denoting "son of".
