Keough

For other uses, see Kehoe (disambiguation).

Kehoe, usually pronounced /ˈkj/, is the name of a clan that existed in southern Ireland. Some, though not all, descend from King Domnall Mór Ua Cellaigh of Uí Maine, who died in 1221.

Many of their descendants then emigrated to America and have spread throughout the country. The name is spelled in a variety of ways, however most common is "Kehoe," "Keogh" and "Keough." In Ireland the Kehoe version is used most often in and around County Wexford while Keogh is more common throughout the rest of the country. Kehoe is one of several versions of the Irish name "Mac Eochaidh" which translates as ‘son of Eochaidh’, a personal name based on each ‘horse’.
