Gaffney: numerous: all areas, especially Leinster. This name is used as an anglicisation for five native names: Ó Gamhna, Mac Conghamhna, Mac Carrghamhna, Mag Fhachtna, Ó Caibheanaigh. Ó Gamhna (gamhain, a calf), a sept of S Leinster now occurring also as Caulfield; Mac Conghamhna were a sept of S Galway who also go as Caulfield. Mac Carrghamhna (calf-spear, a personal name) a Midlands sept who have turned into MacCarron and O'Growney also. Mag Fhachtna, from the personal name Fachtna, is also more realistically rendered Mac Gaughney. Ó Caibheanaigh is a S Leinster name which may appear as Keveny, but not to be confused with Connacht Keaveneys. IF.
Mac Conghamhna: Gaffney, Caulfield: cuíosach líonmhar: Connacht & rl. Clann de chuid Uí Fiachrach Aidhne (Gaillimh theas). Ní mór feachaint ar Gaffney (Cuid 2) chun an meascán mearaí go léir a thuigsint. Préamh: cú + gamhain.IF.
