Surname Dictionary

Groarke Quite numerous: Mayo and scattered. Ir. Mag Ruairc. Ó Corráin & Maguire remark that the rare early name Ruarc may contain the word arg, a hero or champion. However, Woulfe and MacLysaght regard it as a Norse name, Ruadhrac from Hrothrekr. In any case, it is the basis for the Rourkes, always associated with Breifne. Groarke was a sept of the Southern Uí Néill, seated in W Meath. GPN, SGG & IF.
