The name comes from Mag Oireachtaigh, an Irish clann of the same stock as the O'Conors of Connaught. Cathel, son of Muirghas, son of Tomaltach, King of Connaught (815-836) was the progenitor of the Clan Roduibh. Towards the end of the 12th century the descendents of Oireachtac O' Roduibh assumed the present name. The name means "son of the member of the assembly".
