In my recent research, I found out that I'm a McMahon descendant. My McMahon's lived in Ballyvannan, County Clare, Ireland. They lived in a place/property location called "Revail" or "Reveal" and was considered to be near Caherhurly Road. I think I've got most of that correct. Also, they were part of the Bodyke Roman Catholic Church in the parish of Tomgraney. I must admit to this is all rather new information for me.
With all of this in mind, I decided to gather some information about the McMahon's. It is the anglicized name for MacMathghamhna which is the name in Old Gaelic. It means "bear". So my question, is that the animal, the bear? The McMahon name comes from Clare and Monaghan. There were two different septs with this name. I am assuming that somewhere along the way, they are related to each other.
