  • Notes 
    • The Irish surname Fogarty is an anglicised form of the Irish Gaelic O'Fogartha. The prefix 'O' signifies "descendant or son of", and 'fogartha' is claimed to have been derived from the Gaelic word for "exiled or outlawed". They are referred to in the Annals of Ulster of 1072, as the "Kings of Ely" (before the Anglo-Irish Invasion). 'Fogharthacht' may also be translated as "noisy".

      Ancient spellings of the surname include: O'Fhogartaigh, O'Fogartaigh, O'Fogartach, O'Fogartagh, O'Fogarty, O'Fogerty. In modern times, the clan name is rarely found in English with an "O" prefix.

      The Fogartys gave their name to the Barony of Eliogarty, in Co. Tipperary, via the English phonetic spelling of "Eile ui Fhogartaigh", and the chief of the sept lived here in Eliogarty Castle. This barony lies between the Slieveardagh Mountains to the South-East, the Slieve Bloom Mountains to the North, and the Silvermine and Slieve Felim Mountains to the West. Although Fogarty is still a fairly prominent name in Co. Tipperary, the ancient Clan castle, as well as the newer Castle Fogarty, are no longer in their hands.

      The Fogarty Motto reads : "Fleadh agus Failte" meaning "Banquet (or Party) and Welcome"

      The Fogarty Crest consists of: "Azure two lions rampant combatant supporting a garb all or, in dexter base a crescent argent in sinister base a harp of the second stringed of the third."

      Other References to the Origin of the Fogarty Clan

      1. From: 'The Surnames of Ireland' by MacLysaght, Page 112, dated 1999

      (O)Fogarty, Ó Fogartaigh (fogartach, expelling). A Dalcassian sept settled in the barony of Eliogarty which was named from them.

      2. From: 'Irish Families' by MacLysaght, Page 89, dated 1991

      (O)Fogarty. The sept O'Fogarty was of sufficient importance to give its name to a large territory, viz. Eliogarty, i.e. the southern part of Eile or Ely, the northern being Ely O'Carroll. Eliogarty is now the name of the barony of Co. Tipperary in which the town of Thurles is situated. Eliogarty is a phonetic rendering of the Irish Eile ui Fhogartaigh, the nominative case of the surname being Ó Fogartaigh. thogh located outside the area associated with the Dalcassian septs the O'Forgartys are counted as of Dalcassian origin. Woulfe states that the name is derived from the word fogartach meaning exiled: the modern Irish word fogartha does not mean outlawed, but such facile derivations must be accepted with reserve. The 'Annals of Ulster". under date 1072, desceribe the chief of the sept as O'Fogarty, King of Ely. In modern times the name is seldom found in English with its prefix O. The majority of Fogartys come from County Tipperary but their ancient seat, Castle Fogarty, is no longer in their hands. The most remarkable of these were Malachy O'Fogarty (fl. 1700), born at Castle Fogarty, of the University of Paris, and Archbishop Fogarty (1858-1955), who was for 51 years Bishop of Killaloe: he is best known for his fearless championship of the Irish cause during the "Black and Tan" scourge in the War of Independence.

      The well known surname Gogarty is of cognate origin: it is Mag Fhogartaigh in Irish.

      3. From: 'The Book of Irish Families Great & Small' by O'Laughlin, Page 108, dated 1997

      O'FOGARTY, O'Fogartaigh, Fogerty, Gogarty

      The O'Fogarty family is anciently found in Co. Tipperary, Ireland and is considered to be an ancient Irish family. The family is still to be found in Co. Tipperary, including the area near Thurles, and their former seat of power, 'Castle Fogarty'.

      Eliogarty is the name of the barony in Tipperary named after this family. In 1072 the Annals of Ulster describe the O'Fogarty chief as 'O'Fogarty, King of Ely'. They ruled over southern Ely, and O'Carroll ruled over northern Ely (Ely O'Carroll).

      The name in Gaelic was spelled O'Fogartaigh, and has been said to mean exiled, outlawed or expelled.

      The location of Castle Fogarty can be found on the full page map of Tipperary in the 'Complete Book For Tracing Your Irish Ancestors', indexed
      under 'C' for castle. One William Fogarty was an adjutant in the Irish American brigades, who resigned in 1863.

      The Fogarty name is well documented in Irish history, and is found in Keatings History. O'Heerin gives Fogarty as chief of the southern Ely: 'South
      Ely of well established tributes-Its clans are of the race of Eocaidh Balderg-A country of affluence, abounding in Hazel Woods, It is the land which
      O'Fogarty obtained.'.

      Most of the name has dropped the "o" prefix long ago, and 61 births of the name were recorded in the 1890 birth index, primarily located in Tipperary and Dublin.

      The name of Gogarty, is presumably of completely separate origins, stemming from the old family of MagFhogartaigh.
