The Daly Clan has extended an influence of greatness all over the world down through the centuries right up to modern day and this global impact can all be traced back to the proud Irish homelands from which we originated:
Historically, County Westmeath in the eastern province of Leinster is strongly linked to the Daly Clan with seats of power and various strongholds being associated to our ancestors. The name Daly is still to found in Westmeath (pictured), a county famous for its Lakeland scenery and in turn the towns and villages of Glasson, Kilbeggan and Athlone to name but a few are all worth visiting if you are on the trail of your Daly ancestors.
Another part of Ireland that you should explore if you are planning on stepping back onto our ancestors soil is the proud county of Clare. Located on the west coast of Ireland in the province of Munster, Co. Clare (pictured) has strong connections to the surname Daly with the name existing in popularity in modern times. Top attractions in this region include the famous Cliffs of Moher, The Burren and Ailwee Caves while top tourist towns include Ennis, Doolin, Killaloe, Lisdoonvarna and Lahinch.
Just north of Clare lies the majestic Co. Galway, part of the western province of Connaught. Galway too can be regarded as a homeland of the Daly Clan and any trip to trace your Daly heritage here will bring you to popular tourist spots such as Galway city itself (known as the City of the Tribes), the Aran Islands and the stunningly unspoilt landscape of Connemara (pictured).
In the province of Ulster, Co. Cavan has historic links to the Daly Clan with a separate sept of the clan believed to have been placed in the heart of this Lakeland county (pictured). The name Daly can be found today in Co. Cavan and the scenic shoreline beauty of the “Breffni County” is complemented by the region’s rolling countryside.
