Egan (Brackloon)

The Irish name Egan is derived from the native Gaelic Mac Aodhagain Sept that was located in Counties Galway and Tipperary. The name translates as ‘son of Egan’. MacEgan is a seldom used variant. This Sept name was also sometimes anglicized as Keegan which can be found mostly in the County Dublin and County Roscommon regions.

    Sorry, I can’t answer that. You would have to find some historian who is able to read the Tithe maps. The last Egan to own the property was Patrick Egan, Jr. and he died in 1954. His wife, Margaret Greaney Egan, took over the property and after she passed, she left it to her niece, who was a Burke from the Corrundulla section in Co. Galway.
