CONCANNON Family History

Recorded in the spellings of O'Concannon and Concannon, this is a famous Irish surname. The name is particularly associated with County Galway, and it is said that for many centuries was found only there. The clan claim descent from a warrior called 'Cuceannan' who was killed in battle in 991 a.d. The name is believed to translate as 'the fair headed hound' which is possible, anything is possible with surnames. Irish surnames in particular, descend from the original chieftain, and many are or were, nicknames for some aspect of the chief. As 'Kennedy' means 'ugly head', then 'fairheaded hound' is quite complimentary...
