SURNAME DICTIONARY/ SLOINNTE NA h-EIREANN

Collins: Very numerous: all areas, especially Munster. Ir. Ó Coileáin, coileán is a whelp. Though this a common English name, in Ireland it is an anglicisation of the Irish, except in Ulster, where some at least are of English origin. The original location of the sept was W Limerick.There is also an indigenous name in Ulster, i.e. Ir. Mac Coileáin. IF. Colling(s): rare: N Down etc. English, dimin. of Nicholas (as Collins is). DBS.
Ó Coileáin: Collins: an-líonmhar ar fud na tíre, go speisialta i gCorcaigh & iarthar Luimnigh, áit a raibh a ndúiche shinnseartha, Uí Conaill Gabhra. Chuir na Normannaigh an ruaig orthu i 1178 agus chuadar go dtí iarthar Chorcaí mar aon leis na Donnabhánaigh. Maidir le brí: tugtar coileán = madra óg ach ní féidir bheith cinnte de. Micheál Ó Coileáin (1890-1922) an duine ba mhó díobh, is dócha. IF & SGG.
