SHEVLIN Family History

This is an Irish clan name of considerable antiquity. It is apparently recorded in the Annals of the Four Masters, that the clan were very powerful before the Anglo-Norman invasion of 1169, and that the principal branch of the clan was to be found in County Offaly. However in the 20th century the nameholders are to be found in either County Monaghan at Carrickmacross, or sometimes in County Donegal. The name is believed to derive from the Gaelic O'Sibhlen, and to translate as the descendant of the swift one, a reference no doubt to a messenger or similar.The nameholders have always been passionate defenders of Irish freedom, and it is probable that their original move from County Offaly to other parts was not voluntary...
