In Reply to: What is the FEENEY history by Ashley Feeney of 862

"The surname Feeney is taken from the Gaelic O Fiannaidhe (soldier), earlier form O Feinneadha. This family was a sept of the Ui Fiachrach (a population group prominent in Counties Mayo and Sligo). The name Feeney is also in Galway where O Fidhne is used as the Gaelic form. This however may be a branch of the County Sligo sept. O'Feeny, of Ballyfeeny, Co. Roscommon, is called O Fighne in the 'Annals of Conacht'."
