O'CONOR Family History

This is regarded as the most famous and illustrious Irish surname. Recorded as O' Connor, O' Conor, Conor, Connor, Connors, Connar and Conner, all nameholders were originally descendants of Conchobhair, the King of Connacht, who died in 971 a.d. He was the predecessor of Turlough O'Connor and Roderick O'Connor, the last High King of Ireland, who died in 1198. The name translates as the male descendant of "Hound-desire", the latter being a personal name which owed much to the Viking influence of the pre 8th Century, when Ireland was invaded by the Norsemen.
