Gallagher Genealogy & History

Gallagher is an Irish surname, from the medieval Gaelic "O'Gallchobhair", meaning "son of the foreign help", perhaps indicating that the clan were originally foreign mercenaries. The ancestral Gallagher land lies near Ballyshannon in County Donegal, which is also the site of the first written record of Gallagher family history, Teag O'Gallchobhair in 1350 in Tirconnell. Gallagher genealogy is most famous for comedian and watermelon-pounder Leo Gallagher; Olympic track and field medalist Kim Gallagher; American actress Helen Gallagher; fictional Saturday Night Live character Mary Katherine Gallagher; and prominent former Oasis members Noel and Liam Gallagher.
