Origin of the Name Cooney

The ancient history of the name Cooney was found in the archives. The name Cooney is from the Gaelic O'Cuana Sept that was formerly of considerable importance. This Gaelic name is taken from the word 'cuan' meaning 'elegant'. Originating from County Tyrone in Ulster, they migrated Westwards to North Connacht at an early date. Three centuries later they were still in that area as evidenced by the Elizabethan Fiants. They gradually spread Southwards, for in the census of 1659 they were numerous in County Clare. The town of Ballycooney still exists to this very day and indicates their exact homeland. A most noteworthy person of the name was Mary Cooney, an Irish poet who had a high reputation in America as well as in Ireland in the 1880's.
The Cooney coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Cooney descendants.
