The Sheehy Clan

Clan History...

The surname Sheehy (MacSithigh) has been in Ireland since as far back as the fourteenth century although, has it's orgins in Scotland. The family, a branch of the MacDonnells of Scotland derive from 'MacSithigh' (son of Sitheach)' who was a great-grandson of Domhnall, the ancestor from whom that family took its name. The MacSheehys were famous as gallowglasses, (heavily armed soldiers) and were employed in Ireland from the 14th to the 16th century. The family came to Munster in the early part of the 15th. century where they settled and subsequently became constables to the Earl of Desmond, and where they built the castle of Lisnacolla (Woodfort) about four miles west of Rathkeale. Today the name is still more commonly to be found in the Munster region.
