DHUBHTHAIGH or DUFFY is an ancient Celtic name that has many associated chiefs and ecclesiastics such as the father of St.BRIDGET; Archbishops of Armagh and ST.DUTHAC, Bishop of Tain and Chief Confessor of Scotland and Ireland. The name DUFFY (and variants) is now world-wide. RE: David Morgan

DUFFY
This is the most popular Monaghan name and derives from O’Dubhthaigh, descendant of Dubhthach, the black one. The Monaghan Duffys are famed in the ecclesiastical history of Clogher diocese, contributing many priests during the penal times of the early eighteenth century. The sept was centred around Clontibret, where Patrick O’Duffy, Chief of Teallach Gealacain, is recorded as early as 1296. Charles Gavan Duffy (1816-1903), the prominent Young Irelander, was a Monaghan man who went on to become prime minister of Victoria, Australia, as was also Eoin O’Duffy, first commissioner of the Garda Siochána, and first president of the Fine Gael party.


In Loving memory of Mark Holmes Horan, our loved one. Ocotober 25, 1957 - July 21,2003

Despite the impediments of quadriplegia, he continually worked at being the "best he could be". Certainly his life was an inspiration to all who knew him. Mark had dreams of running with his dog Magic - now he can! Run with Magic, Mark! Run with the angels! Run! DHD 8/03
