Downey (surname)

Downey is an Irish surname that means in English “belonging to a fort”. The name is found from ancient times in areas of Ireland’s modern County Galway, southwest Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Ulster and Leinster and is believed to be the surname of three distinct families. In Ulster, Downey (var. there Devaney) is a surname of ancient Gael royals. The O’Downey or O’Devany (I. O’Duibheanaigh) chiefs ruled in Cinel Amhalgaidh in that portion of Gaelic Ireland's Ulidia (kingdom) that is, now, Clanawley in County Down.
