Who can be a Member of the O’Dea Clan?

Dysert O`Dea Clan Association > Membership

Membership of an Irish Clan is something that an individual possesses as a right of his/her heritage.

All members of a clan carry the same surname and claim descent from the same common ancestor.  Clan membership however is not purely based on bloodlines as people often joined clans through marriage, adoption and fostering, and for political and territorial reasons.

Consequently, membership of an Irish Clan is frequently linked to an individual’s identify and is strongly associated with a shared common heritage and culture.

If your name is O’Dea, O’Day, O’Dee, Dea, Day or Dee, or if you are descended from an O’Dea, O’Day, O’Dee, Dea, Day or Dee, then you are a member of Clan Uí Deághaidh.

Membership of the O’Dea Clan is not the same as being a member of the Dysert O’Dea Clan Association.

What is the Dysert O’Dea Clan Association?

Dysert O`Dea Clan Association > Membership

O’Dea Clan members from throughout the world gathered at Dysert O’Dea in 1990 for the first time since the Flight of the Wild Geese in 1691.  Meeting in nearby Ennis, these Clan representatives formed the Dysert O’Dea Clan Association (as Gaélige: Cumann Chlann Díseart Ó Déaghaidh) to facilitate and encourage exchange between Clan members and to promote research into the history and genealogy of the O’Dea Clan.
