CARMODY Family History

This is an ancient and hounourable Irish surname. Recorded as Carmody and O'Carmody, although the latter form is now very rare, it derives from the pre 10th century Gaelic O' Cearmada, which translates as the descendant of the black hunting dog. Almost all Irish surnames originate from a nickname description of the first chief of the clan. Some of these are obviously related to "warrior like" activities, some are very personal descriptions such as "Black head" for Kennedy whilst "Wolf cub" for Cannon is not unlike Black hunting dog for this name. Quite why anybody should be so-called is a mystery, and without actually being present when this name was "given" a thousand or more years ago, any observations can only be subjective...

    Roselyn Carmody

    Maurice runs through my family of Carmody. My brother is Maurice and my Uncle was Maurice and I have a cousin Maurice They are all Maurice Carmody. My family came from Listowel Co Kerry. My email address is Roselyn.carmody@gmail.com. I need to go looking because I do have a list of all the people in my line who went to America and I need to see if any have James Maurice among them.

    My Paternal grandfather Michael Carmody was from County Kerry. He was a Garda in Dublin and died around the early 1940’s. My paternal grandmother was Bridget Doyle from County Carlow. She died in the Belfast area in 1985? My father Hubert Christopher Carmody and his brother Michael we’re twins born in Dun Laoghaire on September 19th, 1935. They had an older brother Patrick. My father and his brothers were sent to live with family in Castleisland, Kerry after their father passed. Unfortunately I don’t have any more information about my family. I’m planning a trip this summer and hoping to find some family and at least visit my grandfather’s grave. Thank you for any help or information you can share with me. Sincerely, Maureen Carmody Rose

    My Carmody family immigrated to Boston in the early 1900's. James Maurice Carmody was the first to arrive. He had eight children.
