Sullivan Genealogy & History

Sullivan, an illustrious Irish surname, is said by tradition to descend from Olioll Olum, third-century King of Munster (the southern half of Ireland); O'Sullivan is still the most popular name in Munster today. O'Sullivan is an anglicized form of the Gaelic "O'Suileabhan", meaning hawk-eyed; the "O" prefix indicates the patronymic (son of) form. Sullivan family history includes lordships in Tipperary prior to the Norman Conquest and a clan stronghold in Kerry. Famous in Sullivan genealogy is Sir Arthur Sullivan (1842-1900), composer of 14 operettas with Gilbert, and Ed Sullivan, whose variety television show aired for 23 years. The Sullivan motto, "lamh foistenach abu", means "steady hand onward".
