Carmody Family CrestThe Irish surname Carmody, is an anglicized form of the Gaelic name  
Ó Cearmada meaning “descendant of Cearmaid,” a personal name which translates as the descendant of the black hunting dog. The original home of the surname was in the counties of Clare, Kerry and Limerick, and many members of the clan emigrated from Ireland to America at the time of the infamous Potato Famine of 1846 - 1848. Included in the recordings are those of Dennis Carmody who left for New York on the ship "Niagara", on June 9th 1846, and Michael Carmody also bound for New York on the ship "Waterloo", on May 22nd 1847.
