Origin of the Name O'Gara

The O'Gara family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of O'Gara include Geary. The Gaelic Sept of O'Gara, O'Gadhra in Irish , is closely associated with that of O'Hara. They have a common descent down to the tenth century, Gadhra, the eponymous ancestor of the O'Garas, being nephew of Eadhra, of the O'Haras. From this time on they established separate Chieftainries. The association remained close and the Chiefs of the two Septs frequently alternated as rulers of Luighne. They have left their mark on the country historically, geographically and culturally. Their castle was Moygara on the shore of the lake still called Lough Gara. The name has become rather scarce in Ireland in modern times. Most of the survivors of the Sept are still to be found in North Connacht.
The O'Gara 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 O'Gara descendants.
