O'Hara Family Crest
The Irish surname O’Hara is of patronymic origin,being derived from the Gaelic name Ó h-Eaghra, from first name Eaghra. The family originated in county Sligo in western Ireland, a branch of the family moved to county Antrim in the north east. It is said that they descend from Eaghra, chief of Leyny, and a member of the household of Ollum, King of Munster. In the 14th century the clan was split into two septs, and the chiefs of each branch were known as O'Hara Buide (the brown faced one) and O'Hara Reagh, (the rough faced one). The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Dermot O'hEaghra, which was dated circa 1350, in the "Composition book of Connacht.”
