Dunne


DunnIn Ireland, the surname is usually spelt Dunne, whilst in America, the spelling Dunn is more common. The sept originated in County Laois (Queen's County) and formed one of the principal families of Leinster, their chief being lords of Iregan in that county. The sept is one of those specially mentioned in the mid-sixteenth century official orders as hostile and dangerous to the English interest. It is in that part of the country that Dunnes are, approximately, not to be found in greatest numbers, though they have spread far and wide. Nearly all those who spell the name Dunn came from Ulster. This is a name to which the practice of recent times of resuming the discarded prefixes Mac and O does not apply - the form O'Dunn or O'Dunne is seldom, if ever, seen today.
